Additional Information

Hamptonne Country Life Museum is a beautiful 15th century farm complex made up of three houses, as well as outbuildings such as the cider barn and stables. In recent years, the complex has been completely renovated and refurbished by the three main heritage organisations in Jersey. The National Trust purchased the farm in 1987. The Société Jersiaise then renovated the property, with the roof of Hamptonne house being completely re-thatched and the hearth being restored to its original 15th century design. The site is now operated by Jersey Heritage which, in keeping with the farming heritage of the property, keep chickens, pigs and cows on site.

In 1649, King Charles II granted Letters Patent to the owner of the property, Laurens Hamptonne, which granted the property the status of a manor and meant that the property could never be divided. Because of this, the farm has been preserved and remains a much loved part of Jersey’s living history.

The stamps in this issue illustrate Hamptonne Country Life Museum from different vantage points, both inside and out, providing an insight into 15th century farm life in Jersey.
