Old Jersey Houses

At the time this house was built in 1836 it was surrounded by open fields. Fifty years later the area had been heavily developed. It was built in 1836 by William Much, who bought the land from Edouard Nicolle. Much's son William Thomas sold it to Philippep Sorel, whose daughter Agnes Mary, wife of Carles Vatcher, sold it in 1921 to Dr H J Shone.
