  • NLC MM 1724 - For Noe Le Cras and Marie Marett. The date does not relate to their marriage, for which no record appears to exist, because their son George was born in 1723
  • FHL MRD 1836 - For Francois Helleur and Marie Rondel, who married in 1827. Their grandson, Frederick Daniel Helleur eventually inherited the property, but it was subsequently sold and the name changed to Ferme Grandet
