Notes and references

  1. HER wrongly states that this and the next stone record the marriage of Thomas and Marie - a lingering reference to 'marriage stones', all of which were supposed to be corrected in their database. This statement illustrates just how misleading it is to refer to datestones as marriage stones, or to indicate that they commemorate marriages. Stones with dates 14 years apart could hardly both record the couple's marriage. Thomas and Marie were married in 1752. The first stone probably records work being undertaken on the house before their marriage in December the following year and the next stone probably records further work on the property
  2. This description suggests that the house is relatively young, but it undoubtedly has 18th century origins
