Interesting Jersey Facts

What unique things can you discover about Jersey?

  • The Island of Jersey covers a compact 45 square miles (116 square kms), much of it unspoiled countryside.
  • The Jersey Battle of Flowers is now over 100 years old and was first staged in 1902 to celebrate the coronation of King Edward VII.
  • Located some 100 miles (160 kilometers) south of mainland Britain, Jersey is
    the most southerly island of the British Isles. In fact, it's much
    closer to France, lying just 14 miles (22 kilometers) from its coast.
  • The relationship between the Island and the American state of New
    Jersey can be traced back to the English Civil War. King Charles II
    twice took refuge in Jersey, first as Prince of Wales and then as
    exiled King of England. The Island's loyalty was rewarded when King
    Charles gave Smith's Island and some neighboring islets off Virginia
    to Sir George Carteret with permission to settle. Sir George renamed
    them New Jersey. The original venture failed but a grant from the Duke
    of York in 1664 gave Carteret, Lord of the Manor of St Ouen, joint
    ownership of the territory now known as New Jersey.
  • The Queen of Spain visits Jersey every year.
  • The island of Jersey and the other Channel Islands represent the last remnants of the medieval Dukedom of Normandy that held sway in both France and England. These islands were the only British soil occupied by German troops in World War II.
