ILC ♥ RDC 1765 - For Jean Le Cornu and Rachel de Caen, who married in St Ouen in 1765. 
Historic Environment Record entry
Surprisingly, not a listed building, according to a sketchy entry in HER. An 18th century two-storey, five-bay house,  with 15th century origins.
Evolution of the house is unclear. McCormack identifies various build phases and fabric from a 15th century hall fireplace onwards to 19th century.
Shown on the Richmond Map of 1795
Old Jersey Houses
An entry in Volume One indicates that the house was examined at short notice because granite fireplaces, found during alterations, were likely to be covered up again. The two fireplaces were directly above each other, and proved to be much older than the facade of the house, which is almost certainly contemporary with the 1765 datestone.
It is identified as having been owned by the Hacquoil family later on. There was an arch in the north face, now plastered over. There are some old and very small windows in the north wall, as well as in the east gable.
Notes and references
- ↑ We have not been able to place this couple in any of our family trees. Rachel (1742- ) was the daughter of Francois de Caen and Susanne Le Marquand. We have not been able to discover which of the several Jean Le Cornus living in St Ouen at the time was her husband
- ↑ Wrongly described in HER as two-bay, five-storey
