MEET THE GOODWYF OR STEWARD IN THE 17TH CENTURY KITCHEN OF HAMPTONNE HOUSE
Thursdays and Saturdays – 10am to 4pm
From June – Monday to Friday – 10am to 4pm
Meet the Goodwyf who looks after the house of her master, Monsieur Laurens Hamptonne in the year of 1649. She is very respectful of her employer, who is a well educated and important man, however this doesn’t prevent her from spreading the odd bit of gossip from the parish of St Lawrence! The Goodwyf will tell you all about Hamptonne’s royal connections and give you an insight into her day to day life, including cooking on the open fire, making soap and candles, and preparing herbal remedies and makeup.
The Goodwyf shares her duties with William, the Steward, who will regale you with tales of the agricultural life of Jersey’s yesteryear.
