Joan Stevens' Old Jersey Houses, Vol 1, records two houses in St Lawrence named Ville au Veslet, both in the district of the same name, and on Mont Isaac. It appears that one is now known as Ville au Veslet Farm, to distinguish between them.

The district and the properties were named after the Le Veslet family, which settled in St Brelade in the 16th century. The older of the two St Lawrence properties probably dates from the late 17th century, and a gable stone is inscribed 1694.
