Families associated with the property

  • Le Ruez: Owners in and before 1714
  • Briard: The Briards acquired this property in the mid-to-late 18th century. Owners most likely included Elie Briard (1772-by 1841), husband in 1793 of Esther Barbier, daughter of Philippe and Jeanne, nee Vibert. Esther was still living in 1841. Their son, Elie Briard (1796- ) was of Petit Vallon, as was his wife, Susanne Vautier. Elie was described in the censuses as Farmer and Mariner. Their son Elie (1824-by 1851) and his wife Marie Jean, lived here, in their turn, as did their son, also named Elie (1847-1920), and his wife, Anne Elizabeth Brideaux. The 1881 and 1891 censuses record this last Elie as having been a Carpenter and Farmer of 13 acres, being about 32 vergées. He and his wife seem to have moved out by 1911, when the property was probably farmed by the Jean family
  • Huelin: In 1941 George Reymond Huelin (1912- ) and his wife Alice Elizabth, née Baudains (1912- ) were living here with their daughter Mary Joyce


  • ELR 1714 - For Edouard Le Ruez
