Source of earliest mention: 1892: Les vieux arbres de la Normandie - Henri Gadeau de KervilleNotes:
August 2000 – Tim Hills: The tree leans away from the church. It is hollow, with a series of metal bands holding it together. There was several feet of humus inside the tree and internal stems/roots.
Notes from Wim Peeters: The 1891 Annuaire des cinq Departements de la Normandie says that the cemetery of Offranville has a very beautiful yew. Sadly it was severely damaged by the storm of 12 March 1876, that was disastrous for our old monuments and the most beautiful tree of the Pays de Caux. Some say the tree was planted in 1400, which would make it 613 years old in 2013. The notice board attached to the tree gives an age of 1100 years. The real age probably lies between the two estimates.
