Families associated with the property

  • Marett
  • de Gruchy:This was a Marett property, which passed to the de Gruchy family through Marie's marriage in 1788. David was a sergeant in the Militia in 1815 and added to his farming activities by conducting a vraicing business at the Ecréhous, where he owned Hut No 4 [1] on Maïtre Ile, and Maison du Havre at Bonne Nuit. This he sold in 1819 to George Remon. David and Marie's eldest son, David Elie, a sailor, died in Manila in 1857. The second marriage in 1866 of their younger son, Jean, was in one respect unusual. He was then aged in his mid-fifties and his bride aged sixteen. It was, though, a happy marriage, blessed with four children
