Historic Jersey buildings

Le Carrefour, Trinity


This property should not be confused with Le Carrefour Farm on the corner of Rue es Picots and Rue du Boulay, further north in the parish. But for many years it has been confused in Jerripedia, the old photograph on the left being associated with the other property since it was first added in 2011. But comparison with the modern photograph above shows the same window pattern and archway in the top left corner. It is undoubtedly a photograph of Le Carrefour, not Le Carrefour Farm

Historic Environment Record entry

Listed building

Jersey farmstead which retains some original features, externally and internally, including a late 19th century staircase, 17th century corbelled fireplace, an unusual recessed porch, press house and outbuilding interiors. Shown on the Richmond Map of 1795.

Rear room (west) contains fireplace with decorated corbels of the 17th century or earlier.

Old Jersey Houses

This house is on a crossroads, the next building being called La Croix. This would substantiate the view that the name Croix meant the site of a cross, not just a crossroad

Notes and references

  1. Meaning 'crossroads' it is not unexpected that there are a number of properties of this name in Jersey. It is perhaps surprising that there are actually only six (there are others with longer names) and all of them in the north of the island - one in St Ouen, one in St Mary, two in St John and two in Trinity
  2. Online trees suggest that Jean was born in 1780, the son of Philippe and Elizabeth, nee Baudains, but we have not been able to substantiate this claim in church records
  3. This is a rare example of a datestone representing father and son, with no reference to the mother
Although the property's address is given as Rue de Brabant, and the buildings are certainly closer to that road, the main entrance is around the corner on Rue des Haies
