The Channel Islands, consisting of the bailiwicks of Guernsey and Jersey, have been dependencies of the British crown since 1066. They constitute the only part of the Duchy of Normandy that still belongs to the crown. They were occupied by Germany from 1940 to 1945.
Jersey: corruption of Latin Cæsarea (dedicated to Caesar)
Jersey is divided into twelve parishes.
Jersey consists of the island of Jersey and the tiny Îles Ecréhou and Minquiers.
The UN LOCODE page for Jersey lists locations in the country, some of them with their latitudes and longitudes, some with their ISO 3166-2 codes for their subdivisions. This information can be put together to approximate the territorial extent of subdivisions.
Although there has been no change in the political geography of Jersey, on 2006-03-29 it was
given a new ISO country code. Before that time it had been lumped in with the United Kingdom.
Its HASC code at that time was
GB.JE; its ISO code,
JSY. Its conventional
abbreviation is Jer.
