The castle had to undergo a seat of nearly 9 years, during which he received the very valuable support of Jersey, remained loyal to his sovereign. More than 100,000 cannon balls were fired against the castle. At the restoration of royalty, it was the jail of Sir John Lambert, former general of Cromwell, which was feared to resume the succession. But Lambert was again peaceful, and he occupied his captivity to lovingly arrange the gardens of the castle, which can be visited today. In 1672 a tragic accident occurred. During a violent storm, lightning fell on the ammunition depot, which exploded. The blast made the dungeon collapse, taking with it the house where Lady Hatton, the wife of the governor, who died buried, was. During the Napoleonic era, for fear of a new French attack, Castle Cornet was modernized and armed with formidable guns, which never served.

POLICY The States of Guernsey, formally named the States of Deliberation, consist of 59 members, of which 45 are deputies, elected by districts to one or more members every 4 years, and 10 are parish twelfths representing the parochial authorities. There are 2 representatives of Alderney and Sark, who are self-governing dependencies of the bailiwick. There are also 2 non-voting members - the Attorney General and the Attorney General, both appointed by the Monarch. The laws voted by the states are called 'ordinances'. Since 2004 there is a system of ministerial government. The legal system is derived from the Norman and English laws, the justice being administered by the Royal Court.

  • THE ANGLO-NORMAN ISLANDS GUERNESEY Saint Peter Port The Bailiwick of Guernsey is a dependency of the British crown in the English Channel off the French coast. In addition to the island of Guernsey itself, it also includes Alderney, Sark, Herm, Jéthou, Brecqhou, Burhou and other small islands. Together with Jersey, they form the archipelago known as the Channel Islands. Guernsey translates to "Guernsey" in English. The Jersey people call the Guernsey “donkeys” or “donkeys” according to their language and the latter in turn call them “toads”, because this animal does not exist in Guernsey. Guernsey has an area of ​​62 km². The landscapes are contrasted there. Bordered by cliffs on the south coast (altitude 100 m) the island gradually sinks as one gets closer to the north coast. The spectacular and jagged landscapes of the south coast give way to meadows and hilly woods of the interior, while to the north, the low and sandy coast is indented with well sheltered bays. Its capital, Saint Peter Port, is one of the liveliest and most picturesque cities of the archipelago. It is in this city that Victor Hugo lived in exile from October 31, 1855 to August 15, 1870. He will return there three times , in 1872 where there was one year left, one week in April 1875, and almost four months in 1878. COAT OF ARMS The coat of arms of Guernsey , like that of Jersey, is made up of the coat of arms of England and that of Normandy. This coat of arms, unlike the others, incorporates a small branch at its top. It is composed of a field of gules, in which appear three lions (or leopard in heraldry) of gold and armed with azure. Above is a small gold branch. The arms are those of the Kingdom of England. They are identical to those used by Jersey (with the exception of the small gold branch on the arms of Guernsey). Although in use since 1290, the use of the royal arms by the Channel Islands was accepted in 1907, but never officially granted FLAG The flag of Guernsey , a dependency of the British Crown, was adopted on May 9, 1985, on the 40 th anniversary of the liberation of the island. Originally, the flag of Guernsey consisted simply of the cross of Saint George. Mention is made of this flag from 1936. However, there was some confusion between this and that of England. To put an end to it, a committee was formed under the chairmanship of Sir Graham Dorey, deputy bailiff at the time, who then proposed to continue using the Cross of Saint George, with the addition of the cross pattée d'or appearing on the standard of William the Conqueror. The civilian merchant pavilion is made up of the Red Ensign with the gold cross on the side. Companies which are registered and have their registered office on the island may fly the flag of Guernsey on their vessels, when operating in the waters adjacent to the Channel Islands. Flag File: Civil Ensign of Guernsey.svg Merchant pavilion ... HISTORY During the Bretons' migration to Armorica in the 6th century, they occupied the Channel Islands (then called the Lenur Islands) which were on their route. At that time, Guernsey was called Lesia. It was part of the kingdom of Brittany in the 9th century but was subject to Viking incursions from that time. In the year 933, the King of France gave Avranchin and Cotentin (on which Lesia / Guernesey depended) to the Duke of Normandy Guillaume Longue-Epée, with the charge of conquering them. The island of Guernsey and the other Channel Islands represent the last vestiges of the medieval Duchy of Normandy, divided since 1204 between England and France That year, the King of France Philippe-Auguste conquered mainland Normandy, the King of England John Landless retaining the Channel Islands. Despite numerous French attempts, Guernsey and its neighbors will remain under the scepter of the King of England, reigning here under the title of "Duke of Normandy". These islands were the only dependent territories of the British crown occupied by Germany during the Second World War and were the scene of Operation Ambassador CASTLE CORNET THE CORNEILLES CASTLE The fortifications of this castle are almost eight centuries old. When King John the Landless lost Normandy to France in 1204, Guernsey chose to remain loyal to the English king. The island immediately felt threatened by the French and the islanders decided to build Castle Cornet to protect themselves from it. Construction began in 1206 and lasted almost 20 years. During the Hundred Years War, the French and the English fought for it bitterly and it passed from hand to hand several times, after fierce battles. As military techniques progressed, the castle was constantly reinforced and modified. During the civil war that tore England apart, the governor of Guernsey, Peter Osborne, withdrew there and challenged the rest of the island which had sided with Cromwell. The castle had to undergo a siege of nearly 9 years, siege during which it received the very precious support of Jersey, who remained loyal to its sovereign. More than 100,000 cannon balls were then fired against the castle. With the restoration of royalty, it was the jail of Sir John Lambert, former general of Cromwell, of whom it was feared that he would take over the succession. But Lambert had become peaceful again, and he occupied his captivity lovingly arranging the gardens of the castle, which can be visited today. In 1672 a dramatic accident took place. During a severe thunderstorm, lightning fell on the ammunition depot, which exploded. The blast caused the dungeon to collapse, sweeping away the lodge where Lady Hatton, the governor's wife was, who died buried. During the Napoleonic era, for fear of a new attack from the French, Castle Cornet was modernized and armed with formidable cannons, which ultimately never served. Guernsey Castle ( Castle Cornet) When hostilities between the English and the French ended, the castle served as an arsenal, prison and barracks. Its military function was abandoned until 1940, when the Germans invaded the island. They concreted certain parts of the castle in order to integrate it into their defense system, the Atlantic wall. POLITICS The States of Guernsey, officially called the States of Deliberation, are made up of 59 members, of which 45 are deputies, elected by districts with one or more members every 4 years, and 10 are parish dozen representing parish authorities. There are 2 representatives of Alderney and Sark, which are self-governing dependencies of the bailiwick. There are also 2 non-voting members - the Attorney General and the Advocate General, both appointed by the monarch. Laws passed by states are called 'Ordinances'. Since 2004 there is a system of ministerial government. The legal system is derived from Norman and English laws, with justice administered by the Royal Court. ADMINISTRATION The island of Guernsey is divided into ten administrative cantons, called parishes: Lihou, an island accessible at low tide, is part of the parish of Saint-Pierre-du-Bois. Parish Nice 1 Saint-Pierre-Port Villais 2 Le Valle Valais 3 Sainte-Marie-du-Câtel Câtelains 4 Saint-Samson Saint-Samsonnais 5 Saint-Martin-de-la-Bellouse Saint-Martinais 6 Saint-Sauveur Saint-Sauveurais 7 Saint-André-de-la-Pommeraye Saint-Andriais 8 Saint-Pierre-du-Bois Saint-Pierrais 9 The Forest Forestains 10 Torteval Tortevalais File: Gu map.gif THE FEODAL SYSTEM Without any political or judicial power for several decades, the feudal system of Guernsey has been maintained to this day. There are officially 75 fiefdoms, at the head of which is a "lord" or a "lady". The British Crown in the person of the Duke of Normandy , Queen Elizabeth II actually owns 29 of its fiefdoms, most of which belonged to abbeys or to Lower Norman priories, before the 16th century. This fact, in 2004, there were 24 private lords totaling 46 lordships inherited from this feudal system. , except that two of these 46 seigneuries are in joint possession between several owners. These fiefdoms belong to very old local lineages which have given rise to numerous officers, bailiffs, jurats and lawyers. These few families reunite in their hands, following endogamous marriages, several of the small rural fiefdoms, resulting from the divisions made over the course of history, according to the precepts of Norman customary law, still in force. As in England and according to a centuries-old system, the fiefs can be sold by the lords to other individuals. Each lord is required, according to custom, to give evidence and homage to the duke or his representative. This tribute is sometimes staged during the Queen's State visits to the Channel Islands. Unlike the Lord of Sark, the Gueurnesiais lords only retained the feudal rights, but lost all their properly seigneurial rights since the 19th century and in the following. The lords played a social role until the first half of the twentieth century. The feudal courts have also practically disappeared, with the exception of the courts of the fief Le Comte (Lenfestey family) or the fief of Blanchelande (to the bailiff of Guernsey, ex officio, in Saint-Martin). The seneschal of a fief, and his officers were usually chosen from among the inhabitants of the fief, as required by feudal customs. In the example of the fief of Blanchelande, which once belonged to a priory of the former abbey of Blanchelande (in Neufmesnil, France, Manche), the court of the fief still consists today of the seneschal, four vavasseurs, and officers who are the clerk and his clerk, the provost, a sergeant and an attic . In the fiefdoms, this court was held either in a special room or room for plaids, or on a stone bench located on a main axis of the seigneury. Some of these benches have been preserved. The 1980 Feudal Dues Law Act definitively extinguished the privacy of the remaining seignorial royalties by transferring them to the benefit of the Crown. In 2002, a complementary law provided for the abolition in 2003 of the right of "thirteenth" (transfer tax) for the benefit of private lords, due to the exemption enjoyed by farms held in fiefs and free fiefs (seigneuries). . This tax now goes to the Crown . The lords and ladies of the most important Guernsey fiefs traditionally sit in the Court of Chief pleas , with lawyers practicing on the island and the constables elected from the parishes, during its solemn sessions "en corps" (or full court ), ie three times. per year. To sit, the Lords and Ladies must have paid homage of their fiefdom to the Crown or its representative, the Lieutenant-Governor of Guernsey. However, even if the presence of the lords and ladies is compulsory at these three sessions, they no longer oppose the debate but only respond to their name. This survival indicates, however, that the Guernsey lordships have retained their moral and legal personalities . Having become owners of several seigneuries (in English: manors ), a certain number of seigneurial dwellings have been converted into luxury hotels (Hôtel de La Barbarie, for the fief of Blanchelande, or the manor of Longueville, in Saint-Sauveur), or quite simply sold, which customary law allows. Some lords have maintained the area rich in rare botanical essences, and open it to visitors, such as the manor of Sausmarez ( Sausmarez Manor ) . It still belongs to the family of Sausmarez, one of the oldest on the island along with that of De Carterets. A similar situation exists in Jersey. GUERNESEY TITLES EN 1020 Duke Richard II divides Guernsey diagonally in two halves, granting from the south-east to Néel, Vicomte du Cotentin and from the west to Anchetel, Vicomte du Bessin. Le Clos du Valle was apparently wasteland. The two initial strongholds had some vicissitudes, but at the time of the conquest of England both returned to the families of the original holders. Evolution of the Fief of Bessin: The Fief of Bessin consisting of the Vintaine de L'Epine and the parishes of Castel, Saint-Sauveur and Saint Pierre-du-Bois, which became Fief Le Comte in 1120 when Ranulf the "Vicomte du Bessin" was created Count of Chester. 12th century, the fief was divided into sub-fiefs: Fiez Rozel, Fief Longues, Fief Suart and Fief Sotuas. The Fief San Michel originated from a donation of uncultivable wasteland to the monastery of that name. After 1204 the fief that Suart divided into two parts, one has the Crown while the rest was named Reveaux fiefdom. Half of the Suart Fief kept by the Crown while the other half given to the Revel family led to the emergence of the Fief de Gohiers, Fief de la Pomare and others. Agricultural Developments and Sales in the Fief Le Compte originated from new sub-fiefdoms like Fief Groignet, Fief Carteret, Fief Grantez or Fief Videclin. Likewise, land transfers from St. Michel represented the Fief Saumarez and the Fief Jean du Galliard. Evolution of the Fief du Cotentin: After the battle in Val Dunes (1047), Duke William II created and granted several ecclesiastical fiefdoms. From 1144 to 1150 the whole island belonged to Geoffrey d'Anjou. The wasteland of the Fief du Cotentin as part of Geoffrey's possessions, which became under his son Fief Le Roi. New sub-fiefdoms arose during the 11th and 12th centuries as Fief Aux Fay and Fief Burons. The Fief Au Fay took place by the payment of a pair of silver spurs and the Burons Fief by the payment of a pair of golden ears. Both were combined as the Fief des Eperons (spurs) with the obligation to pay a pair of vermeil spurs. After 1204 the Crown obtains certain territories holders of previous Norman form which decided to pay homage to France, thus losing their island territories. It is at the origin of some strongholds such as the Fief des Bruniaux, Fief Au Marchant and Fief Hailla. Fief of Sausmarez originated in Fief Barneville. From St. Martin s and linked to the defense of the church comes Fief de la Velleresse (velleresse to watch = keep a watch on the coast, having this obligation) Stronghold The King originated Stronghold of Rozel formerly held by the Cotentin de Rosel family, which passed to the Crown in 1204 with the stronghold granted by Duke Guillaume II to the abbey of Marmoutiers. Geoffrey d'Anjou established in 1150 when he was developing his plans for the invasion of two military strongholds De Vaugrat from England and Bruniaux in the parish of St. Sampson. Fief Anneville granted by Henry III to Sir William de Cheny in 1248 is also from this parish. The evolution of the land in the parish of Torteval is complicated, because although initially in the Fief du Cotentin, many of its fiefs cover St. Pierre-du-Bois, which is part of the Fief du Bessin. The original Fief Au Cannely (granted to the Cherbourg family and, naturally, on the territory of the Fief du Cotentin) was replaced by several sub-fiefs of marriages and establishments: Fief Guillot Justice, Fief Janin Besnard, Fief de Thomas Blondel , Fief Bouvée Duquemin, Fief Robert de Va (or de Ver), Fief Jean du Gaillard (which passed to the Crown at the beginning of the 16th century), etc. A perplexing overlap of territories thus emerges. In 1248, the distribution of the fiefs was much as it is today. The number of fiefdoms in Guernsey has remained unchanged since the 14th century. The titles were kept in some cases the same years families (Sausamez). All 75 Lordships are fully documented; This is not the case with the other titles of the Channel Islands. In January 2004, 24 private Lords hold 46 Lordships which means that some Lords hold more than one title. Two more Seigneures (Riviere and Beuval) are owned by more than one person and the fiefdoms of 27 others belong to the Crown. The title is transferred by means of transport. The transfer must be in accordance with Guernsey practices. This means that the will or conveyance must be made in accordance with Guernsey Law. The document is registered with the HM Registry VICTOR HUGO On August 5, 1852, Victor Hugo arrived in Jersey and settled there. In 1853, he published the Punishments. The 98 poems of the Punishments describe his anger and his indignation following the coup d'état of Louis-Napoleon Bonaparte. In October 1855, the Jersey authorities expelled Victor Hugo. He leaves Jersey for Guernsey, an island smaller and wilder than Jersey. For fifteen years, Victor Hugo will remain in exile, writing satires against the one he calls "Napoleon the little one". But it was also the time when he produced his greatest works: The Contemplations, The Legend of the Centuries and The Miserables. In April 1856, publication of Contemplations. With his copyright, he bought Hauteville-House, a large house overlooking the sea. In December, Adèle, her daughter, who has difficulty in this exile, falls seriously ill. At the end of June Victor Hugo fell seriously ill. For more than a month he has to keep the room. He did not come out, very weakened, for the first time until August 4th. In August 1859, Napoleon III granted amnesty to republican outlaws. Victor Hugo, however, refuses to return to France. In September, he published The Legend of the Centuries. In March 1861, for the first time, he left Guernsey to go to Belgium. He finishes Les Misérables. In September he returned to Guernsey without his son Charles, who preferred to stay on the continent. 1865, Victor Hugo leaves Guernsey to settle in Brussels. He will return to Guernsey once again that year Victor Hug o in exile in the islands Anglo-normans

  • As part of the peace between England and France, Pope Sixtus IV issued in 1483 a Papal bull granting the Privilege of Neutrality, by which the Islands, their harbours and seas, as far as the eye can see, were considered neutral territory. Anyone molesting Islanders would be excommunicated. A Royal Charter in 1548 confirmed the neutrality. Not that the French behaved, as they attempted to invade Jersey a year later in 1549 but were defeated by the militia. The neutrality lasted another century, until William III of England abolished the privilege[7]:89 due to privateering activity against Dutch ships.

  • Vicomte de Contentin Counts Contentin count Contentin graf Contentin "Vicomte de Contentin owned 1/2 of Guernsey known as the Fief of Technically, Guernsey and the Feifs were part of the Manche, Normandy, France. All titles of nobility were abolished in mainland France, but those titular titles may still exist in Guernsey. The Cotentin Peninsula (US: /ˌkoʊtɒ̃ˈtæ̃/,[1] French: [kɔtɑ̃tɛ̃]; Norman: Cotentîn [kotɑ̃ˈtẽ] (About this soundlisten)), also known as the Cherbourg Peninsula, is a peninsula in Normandy that forms part of the northwest coast of France. It extends north-westward into the English Channel, towards Great Britain. To its west lie the Channel Islands and to the southwest lies the peninsula of Brittany. 1204 AD - Fief Blondel and other Fiefs are Forfeited to the Crown with separation from Normandy and given to loyal Seigneurs and Dames. The evolution of the lands in the parish of Torteval is complicated, because although initially in the Fief of the Cotentin, many of its fiefs cover St. Pierre-du-Bois, which is part of the Fief of Bessin. Then the Southwest side of Guernsey was composed of the Fief Canelly which was divided in 1205 into parts with the Fief Blondel becoming independent at that time. Fief Blondel is part of the former large Fief of Canelly, once held by William de Chesney (1284) and before him by the Le Canellys until the separation of Guernsey from Normandy in 1204. -Tupper in his history of Guernsey also proves the existence of this church in 1028, quoting the list of Fiefs existing at the accession of Robert I. (Duke of Normandy in 1028), at which time Guernsey was divided into two great fiefs: the fief of Néel, vicomte de St. Sauveur (Cotentin), comprised the six parishes of St. Samson, St. Peter-Port, St. Andrew, St. Martin, the Forest and Torteval, including the Château d'Orgueil. Néel was also known as: (Niel, Nigel) II (III) de Saint-Saveur, Vicomte de Cotentin born in 1016 and died around 1073. The remaining four parishes: the Vale, Câtel, St. Sauveur and St. Peter-in-the-Wood, formed the fief of Ansquetil.
