Historic Environment Record entry

Old Jersey Houses

Property called Champ Collin in Volume 2

"It is recorded that this house was still thatched in 1911 and that it used to be called La Picoterie. We may, however, be considering two houses, as the Richmond Map confirms the impression of the present owner that an older house stood in the north-east corner of the field to the north."

Notes and references

  1. Colin is spelt with one 'l', not Collin as shown, perhaps due to a typograpical error, in Old Jersey Houses, a mistake perpetuated in the Jersey Datestone Register
  2. Not Isobel as suggested in Old Jersey Houses
  3. Although we have confirmed this marriage from the Grouville register, it has not been possible to place Philippe and Jeanne in any of our family trees. Both were born in St Saviour and Philippe is believed to have been the son of Philippe, son of another Philippe
  4. This stone is recorded as 16 TMR SAB 83 in the HER entry, and also in the text of the Old Jersey Houses profile. An illustration in the book shows it as S TM. The Jersey Datestone Register records TM and includes a photograph on which it is not possible to read the inscription. Whatever the truth about the engraving, the attribution to Timothee Mourant and Susan Aubin, who married in 1681, seems likely
