Parish jurors in the 1309 Assize Roll

Jump to: navigation, search

The Roll of the 1309 Assize, held before the King's justices in Jersey in the second year of the reign of Edward I, contains interesting lists of names common in the island at that time. It is interesting to note that the great majority of the surnames no longer exist, and that many of them cannot even be found again much later than the early 14th century.

The Assize Roll was recorded in Latin, which creates some difficulty in the translation of names, but in this list of the 12 jurors put forward by each parish to participate in the Assize, the translation has been made as accurately as possible to reflect the names then in use in a French-speaking community. The translations made for the early 20th century publication by La Société Jersiaise used English versions of baptismal names where they exist.

It is also of interest that this 14th century list of Jersey parishes follows in an anti-clockwise order around the island from St Helier, whereas more recently and today an alphabetical order would probably be used
