Datestones

Historic Environment Record entry

Listed building

Notes and references

  1. It is unusual to have a dated stone with a single set of initials and a heart, and no obvious gap left to add a wife's name
  2. There is no obvious explanation why a 17th century stone should be found at a house built in the early 19th, and not known to have earlier origins. Although we have shown a link from Bernabey to a Grouville Pirouet tree, we are not certain that he belongs there. It is likely, however, that he was the son of Francois Pirouet and Elizabeth, grandson of another Bernabey and Susanne
