In 1483, Philippe de Carteret was possibly granted a Royal licence to crenellate (St Ouen's Manor, Jersey)

Rebuilt by Philippe de Carteret in 1483. Salter writes he was granted a licence to crenellate, presumably at this date, but Salter source is not cited. Philippe de Carteret was the chief local supporter of Edward IV during his reoccupation of the island from the French. The fief of St Ouen's, the leading fief in Jersey, had belonged to the de Carteret family since time immemorial

Significant later sources are;
