Notes and references

  1. Val Poucin was formerly part of the nearby Radier Manor estate. Its owner qualifies as one of the chef tenants of Grouville, owners of Grouville Common
  2. When it was offered for sale for £2,950,000 in 2017 it was described as 'a beautifully developed 18th century granite farmhouse'
  3. There were a number of Jean Roissiers married in the three decades before 1819, but one possibility is the one from St Clement, who married Marie Mackay, of the same parish, in St Clement Parish Church in 1804. Alternatively the stone may have been prepared, but left incomplete, when work was undertaken on the property prior to the marriage of Jean Roissier of Grouville to Jeanne Pinel of St Saviour, in St Helier in 1821
  4. Although the current building may be early 19th century it is believed that the property has origins a century earlier
This photograph indicates that a second datestone has been added to the right of the original, after the colour picture at the top of the page was taken
