Parish donates Elizabethan papers

Records dating back to the reign of Elizabeth I have been donated to the Jersey Archive.

The records from the Parish of St John, which have been fully catalogued, form some of the most extensive collections from any parish in Jersey.

Among them is a reference to a petition brought by the merchants of Jersey and Guernsey who were against setting up a customs service.

The records include contracts from as far back as 1597.
