Comments

After the execution of Charles I in 1649, Jersey was the first place to proclaim his son King Charles II.  (It was not until the end of the English Civil War in 1660, that he was actually crowned king in England.)  On November 28, 1663, King Charles II presented to the Bailiff of Jersey the Royal Mace in gratitude for the loyalty and kindness he received during his two stays on the Island during the Civil War.  The Royal Mace is considered by many as one of the finest maces of the 17th century.
