In the Labey Family History, Trevor Labey writes of Abraham:
"Jane's father Abraham, moved northwards to the southern most borderof Grouville and in 1836 acquired the house and farm now known asGoodwood in La Rue du Coin (i.e.: St
Kilda) directly behind Samarès Manor. Here, Jane's father became arespected member of the community, serving for many years as theparish's Procureur du Bien Public (Public Trustee and Auditor), aservice which would have brought him into close contact with hisfuture son-in-law, Philippe Labey. In this capacity Abraham Ahier wasa signatory to bank notes issued by the Parish of Grouville as a meansof raising funds and also acting as a safe depository forparishioners' savings..."

"During his life, Jane's father Abraham lived in a total of threeparishes in the island, none of which was his family's parish oforigin. Although Ahier is
a very prolific surname which features in records throughout theisland, Jane-Elizabeth's forebears appear to have belonged to adistinctly St Sauveurais branch, her ancestors eventually settling inLa Rue St Thomas which, as we have seen, is the road which leads fromLongueville Manor towards Val Poucin. In particular, they were forsome years associated with the property now known as Le Petit Jardin.This property was acquired by Jane's ancestor Gedeon Ahier, son ofJean Ahier and of Mabel Godel, on Christmas Eve 1674... In the lastquarter of the eighteenth century the house seems to have been rebuiltby another Gedeon Ahier (eldest son of Gedeon Ahier and ElizabethAubin), reat-grandson of the aforesaid Gedeon and Jane-Elizabeth'sgreat-uncle."

Esther Filleul. Margueritte's father was the eldest son of Jean LeNeveu
and Marguerite Le Neveu his wife and second cousin, their initialsbeing
inscribed on a date stone in the façade of Pontorson Farm which bearsthe
date 1766... Sworn in as Vingtenier (Honorary Police Officer) ofSamarès
in 1779, Jean senr. also served as the Lecteur (Church Registrar) ofSt
Clement from 1771 until his death in 1791, being buried in the plot
reserved for the most senior members of his family in St Clement's
churchyard under the shade of its ancient yew tree. The exact site ofhis
final resting place can still be seen today, marked by a granite block
bearing the inscription JLNV 1791. [Trevor Labey, 1999]
