View Full Version : Longueville Manor Jersey

Would any one know if Longueville Manor on Jersey was used to house military families between 1800-1813? At the time I believe it was owned by Madeline Burrard nee Durell, though I don't know how accurate this info is. Robert RR Rose eldest children were born there, the first in 1801 the last in 1811. If the Manor was a private home at the time I might have a clue to this eternally mysterious guy's identity.

If it helps, Longueville Manor is now a hotel and "A History of Longueville Manor" by Joan Stevens is available from the hotel.

I got the info re Madeline Burrard nee Durell from Joan Steven's book. Like everything else with Robert Reginald Richmond Rose, the fact that his children were born at Longueville may mean something, or it may mean nothing at all! Madeline Burrard inherited Longueville from her brother in 1800 when she was an elderly widow. She and her husband had lived in Jersey, but I don't know if they lived at Longueville.The Burrard family were a VERY important military family at the time, Generals and Admirals everywhere. What is interesting is that the Burrard family seat was in Hampshire, quite close to Cuffnells, the home of The Right Hon George Rose, Treasurer of the navy. George Rose certainly knew the Burrard family. I think George Rose MIGHT be connected to Robert RR. Robert RR's youngest child Ann Rose was born (1819) at Orgueil Castle, and her Aussie descendants believe she was raised there. This was at a time after Robert RR had left the Navy.
Members of my husbands family have been chasing the identity of Robert Reginald Richmond Rose for a couple of generations now. The family legend talks of elopements, disinheritence, descent from both the Duke of Richmond AND the Duke of Argyle,and above all the "Rose Millions" which is supposedly sitting in Chancery were the family can't get to it! Having successfully traced my own family, I promised my husband's elderly Aunt Lorna that I would have a crack at the family legend, only to discover why it has remained a mystery for 200 years! I'm working by a process of elimination and will probably drive the British Genealogy community crazy with all my questions! Thanks for your help. Bye Anne W
