Families associated with the property
- Poingdestre: See datestones
- Labey: Various documents in Jersey Archive suggest a link to the Labey family in the 20th century, but there may be confusion with nearby Highfield Estate and Highfield Villas
- IPD MPD 1741 - This stone is recorded by HER but not found in the Datestone Register. The initials are probably for Poingdestre, and may represent Jean Poingdestre, who married an unknown Marie (from St Helier) in St Brelade in 1721. This couple cannot be found in any of our Poingdestre trees
- 17 IP MP 40 (VI added to stone below left and NIS added to stone below right) - On Highfield Lodge. Probably for the same couple with family names represented by P rather than PD
- IP MP 1744 - Two stones with this inscription. Comments above apply
