Although, apart from its parish churches, Jersey has no very old properties, there are many fine houses dating from the 16th century onwards. This new page gives direct access to a comprehensive list of some 300 of the most important houses, divided into the 12 parishes, and to articles about the major manor houses. We also have a number of articles about various aspects of typical Jersey homes over the centuries, both their architecture and contents. This section of Jerripedia is still very much a work in progress, and if any of our site visitors can provide more information about any of the listed properties, which may have been their own ancestral homes, or any which we have missed but should be included, please get in touch (see box, below left).

We want to know more about Jersey's houses and the families who lived in them. Do you have information on an island property which might have been the home of your ancestors? Please get in touch with us (email editcontact@theislandwiki.org) to let us know what you know and we will make arrangements to add the details to the site. Old photographs of Jersey houses are particularly welcome.

All the manor houses are included under their parishes in the lists of houses, and here are direct links to articles about the most important
