Families and businesses associated with the property
This property was not listed in the 1841 census or earlier commercial directories. In 1851 it was home to ship owner Pierre Le Vesconte (1787-) and his family. He married Jeanne Malzard in St Brelade in 1816 and they had children Peter William (1817- ), Isaac (1819- ), Isaac (1822- ), Jane Elizabeth (1825- ), William (1831- ) and Elizabeth (1834- ). There is no sign of any of the family in 1861, when Pierre, described as a merchant, was living alone at No 35 with a servant.
In 1871 the census showed the Fosse Family from France living in the premises, but no sign of any business operating there. General merchantAlbert Hunt, part of a family of St Helier businessmen was shown at No 35 in 1881 with his wife Mary Louisa (1854- ) and children Florence Mary (1867- ) and Emma (1879- ). A succession of occupants are listed in almanacs through to the 1930s, with no indication of which were running a business. From 1940 onwards the premises are listed to Happy Snaps, then the Jewel Box, run by Mrs J Sarsby in the 1960s, followed by Hambros Bank and more recently Caxtons Print Shop.
