Families associated with the property

  • Falle: 18th century owners.
  • Syvret: The property was largely occupied by the Syvret family in 1901. The census for that year shows them in three separate households: Farmer John Syvret (1843- ) and his second wife Ann Elizabeth, nee Agnes (1848- ); Farmer John Philip Syvret (1865- ) and his wife Amanda Laura, nee Syvret (1864-1936), with their son John (1888- ) and daughter Ida (1890- ); Elise Syvret (1849- ) single and living on her own.

John Philip Syvret was the son of John (1843- ) and his first wife, who we think was Elize Bailhache (1846- ).

  • Godfray: Also at Daisy Farm in 1901 was solicitor's clerk Frank Godfray (1879- )

Historic Environment Record entry

Listed building

Historic farm group, now sub-divided. The oldest structure, Daisy Farm Cottage, is shown on the Richmond map of 1795. Likely to be on the site of an older property; garden wall incorporates re-sited pre-1700 archway.

This 18th century house is built in the Georgian style and retains the proportions of its granite elevations, although the roof form detracts from its interest. The interior retains the integrity of plan and the staircase in particular is of note. The house contributes to its setting and its significance is enhanced by its relationship with the adjacent farm group.

Two-storey, five-bay house with 18th century origins. Inappropriate new roof form, slightly raised and with overhanging eaves, added in late 20th century.

Front elevation retains original 18th century Georgian stonework. To the front of the house is a garden with stone boundary wall to the roadside including re-set pre-1700 chamfered archway of nine stones with chamfer stops.

The interior has been altered but retains some features of interest, in particular the wide hallway with distinct later 18th century style doglegged stair running to attic level. Also 18th century pattern five-panel door to attic landing

The mid-19th century farm group, now Wilbardia Court, retains its proportions and external historic character. It contributes to its setting and its significance is enhanced by its relation with the outbuildings and adjacent farm buildings.

Interior divided into two dwellings. Two front doors inside original doorcase. The most recent addition, now called Daisy Farm, is a mid-1930s farmhouse.

Notes and references

  1. It would seem likely that the Jean recorded on this stone was the grandson of Jean and Judith on the other stone. We have not been able to place these Falles in any of our family trees and have not found any online trees for these St Peter Falles. It is probable that Jean's father, son of Jean and Judith, was also Jean, married to Jeanne de Carteret Remon in 1759
