St Brelade:

La Moye


La Moye, or La Moye Farm, as it is sometimes known, is set in a secluded position above Beauport. It was in the ownership of the Pipon family for a long period. The family also acquired the fief of Noirmont and its manor in 1695. Both properties were eventually acquired by the Le Gallais family, and La Moye was still in their hands in the late 20th century.

There are no datestones at La Moye, and in Old Jersey Houses Vol 1 Joan Stevens makes no attempt to put a date on the property. It must be of considerable age, however, because Jean Pipon, the first member of the family on record as living there, was Constable of St Brelade in 1551. His grandson, who lived at La Moye, was Constable of the parish in 1566, and several of his descendants held high public office.
