Geocache Description:

An interesting cache but needs some planning. Can hold small trade items.

Somehow this area has long been associated by tradition with the famous Breton, St. Samson who visited Jersey in A.D. 530. What St.Samson‘s link with this area may have been no one can now say, but the tradition was long-lived.

In 1747 the Seigneur of La Malletiere was granted exclusive rights to use the area known as 'Avallison' by the Royal Court and one of his property boundaries was fixed to this certain location called 'Les Settes Samson'.

In 1781 de Rullecourt planned to attack the island by landing his troops here on a moonless night and march them undercover up the narrow channel. But this expedition was delayed by contrary winds and when he did sail the tide made it impossible to carry out this plan and he had to land them further along the shore. The following year after this raid the States built a structure here and named it after the local Governor of the time General S. Conway.
