A gatepost at the entrance to the farmyard has TLB EBT 1769 and this is repeated on a flight of external stone steps in the outbuildings, representing Thomas Labey (1710-1785), Constable of Grouville, who married Elizabeth Bertram. Thomas inherited La Fontaine in 1744 from his father, Philippe, who married Jeanne Anthoine of Longueville.
