A little bit of history
“A big WELCOME and enjoy”
Jersey boasts a captivating and ancient past. It harbors traces of prehistoric life, including evidence of Paleolithic (Old Stone Age) humans at La Cotte de St. Brelade, and rich remnants from the Neolithic and Bronze Ages. During Roman times, it went by the name Caesarea. Historical records from the 11th century depict Jersey as comprising 12 parishes within the diocese of Coutances. In the 12th century, Norman landowners exerted significant influence on the island, dividing it into three revenue collection units for the king-duke. Following its separation from Normandy in 1204, Jersey underwent reorganization. It retained its Norman legal system and local customs but saw administrative changes. It was governed on behalf of the king by a warden and sometimes a lord. By the late 15th century, Jersey had its own captain, later known as the governor, a role abolished in 1854, with the responsibilities passing to a lieutenant governor, who continues to oversee them. In 1617, it was established that justice and civil matters were under the bailiff’s jurisdiction.
