Jersey is one of the Channel Islands lying off the coast of Normandy, France, the last remnants of the old Duchy of Normandy and coming under the British Crown but not the UK government. In the Civil War of the 17th century, Jersey remained loyal to the King, and the De Carteret family actually helped the King's son to escape after his father was beheaded. When the son in question returned to England and was crowned Charles II, he rewarded the De Carterets by giving them a large tract of land in the New World. This they christened New Jersey.
Incidentally, the De Carteret family is still living in Jersey, still in the same Manor House they built after the Norman Conquest of England in 1066.
