List of Bailiffs of Jersey

Sir Michael Birt (appointed Bailiff 2009) with sculpture of Lord Coutanche (Bailiff 1935-1962) behind

This is a list of bailiffs of Jersey.

In 1290, separate bailiffs for Guernsey and Jersey were appointed.

The list of bailiffs is only reliably traceable from Philippe L’Evesque’s appointment in 1277, although earlier bailiffs are mentioned and the office may date from before 1204.
