Communes and common land in Jersey


Commons or communes remain in the Jersey landscape as a vestige of
our feudal past. But apart from the odd conveyancing transaction,
little has been written about these areas of land and only a few select
individuals know anything about those that are still operated. This
article will examine the history of communes, their legal nature and
the meaning and effect of their continued existence in the Island.
