Historic Environment Record entry

Listed building

This farm complex spanning a large historical period, occupies a very picturesque position overlooking St Ouen's bay. The early house to the west, with its (once detached) boulangerie, could be very early indeed, circa 1400s. The group retains historic character.

Evidence that the west older buildings could be very early lies in the unusual arch with meagre shoulder-stones and a hollow chamfer, which is likely to have been the arch into this older house; also the carved 15th century window lintel, presumably still in situ.

The boulangerie, with very small random-stone construction adds more to this notion. Shown on the Richmond Map of 1795.

Historic farm group. On east of site is La Robeline, with rear outbuildings. On west of site is La Robeline Cottage, with both south and north outbuildings.

Old Jersey Houses

A brief entry in Volume One gives no indication of the age of the property, except to note the presence of some pre-1700 stones and the unusual arch.

Notes and references

  1. The name is said to be derived from the Robelin family, who held a fief called de Robelinoys in St Mary in the 13th century
