For the whole Bailiwick, see Bailiwick of Guernsey. For other uses, see Guernsey (disambiguation).) is an island in the English Channel off the coast of Normandy.
It lies roughly north of St Malo and to the west of the Cotentin Peninsula.
Protracted court action against the officers involved and the chief officer of police finally came to a close after they agreed that they had acted unlawfully.In the mid-16th century, the island was influenced by Calvinist reformers from Normandy.During the Marian persecutions, three women, the Guernsey Martyrs, were burned at the stake for their Protestant beliefs.As part of the peace between England and France, Pope Sixtus IV issued in 1483 a Papal bull granting the Privilege of Neutrality, by which the Islands, their harbours and seas, as far as the eye can see, were considered neutral territory. Not that the French behaved, as they attempted to invade Jersey a year later in 1549 but were defeated by the militia.
Anyone molesting Islanders would be excommunicated. The neutrality lasted another century, until William III of England abolished the privilege due to privateering activity against Dutch ships.
During the Middle Ages, the island was a haven for pirates that would use the "lamping technique" to ground ships close to her waters.
