Notes and references

  1. The first initials on this stone were read by Joan Stevens as 'TLC' and shown as such in the list in Vol 2 of her Old Jersey Houses. She deciphered the initials as being for Thomas Le Cras. This error was perpetuated by the Datestone Register, which remarked that a record of the marriage of Thomas and Marie had not been found. We believe that this is because there was no such marriage and the worn, very light engraving has been wrongly interpreted. Jean Le Cras and Marie Gibaut married in St Lawrence in 1692
  2. The initials are interpreted by HER as for Josue Le Cras and Marie Gibaut, copied from the Datestone Register. This is wrong. The register's compiler failed to find a marriage recorded and based the interpretation on a burial record for a Marie Gibaut. There was no marriage of such a couple, but the marriage of Jean and Marie is in our database. Although we think it likely that this Jean was the son of the Jean on the stone above, we have not been able to place either of them in any of our Le Cras trees
