Old Jersey Houses
Its age should have secured this house a mention in Volume 1, but it just creeps into the second volume, described as a 'neat little house' which 'does not at first suggest great age'. Having said this, the author makes no attempt to suggest what age the house might be. One wonders whether she was writing about the correct property because, as the photograph above shows, it hardly qualifies as a 'little house'.
- "As a central chimney indicates a stone wall to support it, this must have been in origin a more important house than its size suggests."
