Historic Environment Record entry

Listed building

This early 18th century house retains its character and historic features. It presents a good facade to the roadside. Shown on the Richmond Map of 1795.

Frontage of Guernsey pattern, two windows to one side of the door and one to the other, a variation rarely seen in Jersey after the 17th century. House probably circa 1720 in date.

Two-storey, four-bay house with three-bay wing to west. Two-storey rear wing. Two-storey barn to east.

Old Jersey Houses

A short entry in Volume 2 mentions the datestones but does not question the presence of a 17th century stone in an 18th century house.

"The Quenault family owned this property for many generations, until the sale to the present owner. The crushing stone of the tou a cidre is inscribed with CQN 1835, probably the father of the P Quenault on Godfray's map.[1] This is the only recorded instance of initials appearing in such a place, where hard wear might be expected to obliterate them.
"Another remarkable thing about the apple crusher is that each section has tally notation scratched on the rim, to make sure that the right sections were joined to each other; a most efficient arrangement."

Notes and references

  1. This would appear to be one of the author's guesses. There is no record in our database of a P Quenault with a father Charles
