Old Jersey Houses
This property gets no more than a passing mention in the first volume. It is somewhat surprising that it figures at all, because the house, previously called Longchamp, was built in 1822, well after the cut-off point for the book at the end of the 17th century. Perhaps it is the unusual 1680 datestone on an outbuilding which persuaded the author to mention the house. The stone has been hidden since the book was published in 1965.
