Old Jersey Houses

'Although this house has been heightened and much altered, the facade retains four finely cut accolade lintels'

Notes and references

  1. It is likely that this Abraham was the son of Abraham and Judith, and a descendant of the first Abraham, but we have not been able to place any of them in our extensive collection of Le Feuvre trees. There are 26 baptism records and 24 marriage records for Abraham Le Feuvres in our database, but they are almost entirely absent from our 19 trees. We have not been able to find a single online tree mentioning Abraham and Elizabeth Le Cour, although they undoubtedly married in St Peter in 1773
