Old Jersey Houses

This property gets no more than a passing mention in the first volume. It is somewhat surprising that it figures at all, because the house, previously called Longchamp, was built in 1822, well after the cut-off point for the book at the end of the 17th century. Perhaps it is the unusual 1680 datestone on an outbuilding which persuaded the author to mention the house. The stone has been hidden since the book was published in 1965.

Notes and references

  1. There seems to be no consensus as to whether the name should be one word or two
  2. The existence of an address for Beau Verd West suggests that the property has now been sub-divided
