Property name

Herupe Farm. There is more confusion over properties known as Herupe, Herupe Farm, Herupe Cottage and Herupe Farm Cottage than probably any other duplication of house names and postal addresses. The property shown in the box on the right is definitely in Chemin de Herupe, it is called Herupe Farm, and we believe that the datestones listed below are on this property, which has also been known simply as Herupe.

Listed separately in recent almanacs, but probably originally part of the farm, is Herupe Farm Cottage. Just along the same road are Herupe Farm Flats, identified on the roadside by a sign showing Herupe Farm, followed by Herupe Cottage. In the opposite direction at the western end of Chemin de Herupe is Herupe House.

The names are repeated in nearby Rue du Bouillon, where there is another listed building called Herupe Farm, which is now believed to be the location of the old photograph previously identified on this page as part of this property.

Old Jersey Houses

Volume One refers to a property called Herupe with the less than helpful location of St John. That has now been shown to be a reference to the property in Rue du Bouillon.

Volume Two refers to a second property, also called Herupe, said to be situated 'west of the main Herupe Farm'. However, the datestones mentioned are also located at the Rue du Bouillon property.

Notes and references

  1. HER refers to an 1832 datestone for this couple, but that is probably a misprint. There is a second reference in the listing to the correct inscription
