St Martin:

Le Catillon


Methodist preacher Jean de Quetteville was born in Le Catillon

Not to be confused with Le Catillon in neighbouring Grouville, where two major Celtic coin finds were unearthed in 1957 and 2012, this property is in St Martin and was described by Joan Stevens in Old Jersey Houses Vol 1 as having 'an exceptionally fine example of a tourelle staircase'.

Methodist preacher Jean de Quetteville was born in the house, which later passed from his family to the Gaudin family.

There are various datestones at the property:

  • 17 EDRM 47 - unexplained
  • EDQ♥MPC 1771 - for Elie de Quetteville and Marthe Perchard, who married at St Martin in 1756 - on a lintel at the rear of the house
  • 18 GGD SAH 24 - for George Gaudin (1793- ) and Suzanne Ahier, who married in 1820. This stone is on a lintel now inside the 1905 potato barn
  • JGD ♥♥ MAP 1834 - for Jean Gaudin, brother of George, and Mary Elizabeth Asplet, who married in St Helier in 1829 - on the front of the house
  • TRN SGD 1883 - for Thomas Renouf (1858- ), son of Thomas, and Susannah Gaudin (1857- ), daughter of John, who married in St Martin in 1878. Susannah's grandfather was George Gaudin's brother. This stone is also on the potato barn
