Old Jersey Houses Vol II

by Joan Stevens The History Press

This is the second volume and covers around 250 buildings erected from 1700 onwards.  It contains a wealth of information about the history of the island and its people as well as detailed historical and architectural notes on its buildings and Jersey’s heritage.  As Sir Robert Marett says in his foreword, ‘... The book provides an invaluable record of the past ...’

Places such as Greve de Lecq Barracks, Almorah Cresent, Hemery Row, Gloucester Terrace, Mont Millais Hotel, Merrivale, King’s Farm, La Hougue Boete and Government House among many more are mentioned.

Joan Stevens is a scholar.  Her text is no descriptive list.  Years of painstaking research into original documentary evidence are apparent in the vast quarry of information within.  The building, builders, owners and historical connections all woven skilfully into a narrative full of human interest and anecdotal humour.  There are copious drawings and maps throughout drawn by her husband, Charles, and their children.
