  • Le Maistre: The connection between the house, which stands towards the bottom of Mont Les Vaux, and the Le Maistre family, has not been established.
  • Holley: Registered here in 1941 were Alfred Eugene Holley (1865- ) and his wife Elizabeth, nee Burgess (1865- ), and her sisters Alice Louisa (1871- ) and Amy Beatrice Burgess (1880- )



  • ILP ♥ AD 1706 - For Capt Jacques Lempriere (1654- ) [1] and his wife Ann Durell, who were married in St Brelade in 1693. The stone which suggest this date for the construction of Maison Le Maistre, is one of the earliest examples in Jersey to incorporate a heart, albeit upside down.
