Description

Compiled from a list of sources including the Cartulaire des Isles Normands, the Extente of Guernsey of 1331 and the livres de perchage, dating back to the Middle Ages, this Index of Guernsey Place Names, the result of 50 years study, is a unique reference work. Complete with French English and English French translations of topographical terms and a list of family names derived from topographical features, the book gives invaluable insight into the tapestry of life in Guernsey over the centuries from the Norman settlement to the mid-20th century, when the feudal system finally gave way to the modern system of landholding.
