Families associated with the property

Censuses

The 1881 census shows Thomas Cabot jnr (49) living at his farm, which had 34 vergees of land, with his children Thomas (23), Eliza (20), Eunice Cabot (18), Esther (15), Emile (7) and Hannah (4). There is no mention of Elizabeth, Thomas' wife.

Ten years earlier Thomas jnr and Elizabeth, plus children Thomas, Eliza, Eunice, Esther and John, were at Le Carrefour Farm, and also living with them were Thomas's father and mother Elizabeth Blampied (strangely described on the census return as mother-in-law) and aunts Marguerite Cabot (71) and Jeanneton Cabot (68).

Back in 1841 the head of household was Thomas snr, then aged about 45; his wife Elizabeth; a younger brother Charles, a sailor; his mother, Elizabeth (70); two other Cabot ladies, Esther (69) and Ann (65), possibly aunts; Margaret (33) and Jane (30), possibly Thomas' sisters: and children Thomas jnr (9), John (8), Charles (6), Elizabeth (4) and Philip (1).

Notes and references

  1. Meaning 'crossroads' it is not unexpected that there are a number of properties of this name in Jersey. It is perhaps surprising that there are actually only six. There are others with longer names and all of them in the north of the island - one in St Ouen, one in St Mary, two in St John and two in Trinity, of which this is the more northerly
  2. We have not been able to establish why the father's datestone is dated 11 years after his son's
