Families associated with the property

  • Hemery [1]
  • Voisin: Plaisance is believed to have been in the Voisin family at the end of the 19th/early 20th century and still to be owned by descendants. Some confusion is created by census returns, which appear to use the name as a general location for a number of properties, including one owned by Helier John Langlois, who was elected Constable of St Lawrence at the age of 71 in 1920 and served two three-year terms. His property has now been identified as the neighbouring Ville au Veslet.
  • Pallot: In 1941 Margaret Olympia Rosamund Pallot, née Voisin (1876- ) was living in Plaisance Cottage
