Families associated with the property

De Gruchy: Thomas de Gruchy, third son of Philippe de Gruchy of La Piece Mauger, Trinity, bought this property in 1837, having married in 1830 Douce Renouf, daughter of Thomas, of La Fosse, Rozel, a master mariner. The couple had five children born to them whilst living here, but sold the property after twelve years, in 1849. Thomas, who seems to have seldom been able to make ends meet, was in 1851 farming as a tenant of the Perchard family at nearby Le Ménage, which he nicknamed "Le Menage du Tacher", being the household of many tasks and endeavours. One gathers that he may not have been very industrious. He was afterwards farming, with his family, a couple of small fields near St Martin's Church, supplementing the family income by undertaking various carpentry commissions. Perhaps unsurprisingly, most of his sons went to sea. One who remained ashore, went to university and became a clergyman

  • Cabot : By 1883, perhaps from 1849. This remained a Cabot property until recently and was the home of Roy Cabot, a Trinity Constable
