In a discussion about Jane Elizabeth Ahier - Trevor Labey, in hisLabey Family History writes:
"They were for some years associated with the property now known as LePetit Jardin. This property was acquired by Jane's ancestor GedeonAhier, son of Jean Ahier and of
Mabel Godel, on Christmas Eve 1674... In the last quarter of theeighteenth century the house seems to have been rebuilt by anotherGedeon Ahier (eldest son of Gedeon Ahier and Elizabeth Aubin),great-grandson of the aforesaid Gedeon and Jane-Elizabeth'sgreat-uncle. The new house was built to a compact but fine standardand besides acting as an impressive witness to the skills of thestonemasons Gedeon employed, this pleasant little house stands as alasting testament to Gedeon's blighted hopes. In the facade of thehouse, near to the public road which passes its eastern gable, is afinely carved date stone. Here one can see Gedeon's initials, GAH,the date 1785 and, in a terrible temptation of providence, a pair ofinterwined hearts. Immediately next to this romantic symbol is asquare of uncarved stone, left blank for the initials of his futurewife. Sadly, Gedeon died after a stroke in April 1830, still abachelor at the age of 78, and so the stone remains as incompletetoday as it was in 1785."
