on the 1813 map. Dr Brian has noted that it is referred to as "late Jay's"
and "formerly Jays" in the building records. Jay's Bank Farmhouse originally
stood to the east of Bodenham Court Farmhouse (qv) and was re-erected on its
present site some time after 1813. (RCHM Herefs II, p 15, item 11; Brian, Dr A:
The Houses of the Township of Bodenham Devereux and their inhabitants in the C19
and earlier, unpublished notes).
