The Jersey Cow - A Darling of the World


The Jersey Cow A Darling of the World.


In the early 1700s cattle from the Channel Islands were being shipped to ports on the south coast of England, Southampton and Weymouth. Port Books show  shipments of cattle to England from 1732 and Customs House Books show many shipments of cows and heifers, beginning in 1724 and including, in 1729-30, a shipment of 27 "black cattle" from Jersey.  In 1732, the Port Books show a shipment of nine "cattle" from Alderney.
The Customs House Books show a steady increase in the number of cattle brought to England from Channel Island ports. At first, the trade had been small, since during the ten years for which records exist between 1724-25 and 1734-35 there were, according to these books, no more than 504 animals carried from the Channel Islands to England. In the eight years, however, for which records exist, between 1744-45 and 1754-55, there were 1910 animals carried, and in ten years for which records exist, between 1764-65 and 1774-75, there were 6306 animals carried. These figures are much larger than those contained in the Port Books, and it seems, therefore, that the sale of French cattle which had been imported into the Islands and then shipped to England was rapidly supplanting the trade in native Island cattle.

For some time the Normandy farmer had been in the habit of shipping his cattle to nearby Jersey. There they were grazed for a few weeks before being sent on to England to be sold at the many town fairs and markets held regularly throughout the country. By doing so it could be pretended on import papers that they were Island-bred and thus free from the excise duties imposed on cattle from foreign countries. Possibly through pressure by the English authorities -in 1763 the States of Jersey concluded that something would have to be done. They banned the importation of live animals from Normandy.  It had to be renewed in 1789, "the fraudulent importation of cattle from France having become a most alarming matter".
This fraudelent importation of cattle from France [David Le Feuvre: Jersey: Not quite British. The Rural History of a Singular People. 2. oplag 1994.]

The Town Dairies
The exported cattle from the Channel Islands [and Normandy] at that time were primarily used in English town dairies. In France the Norman cows were sent to Paris dairies and it seems reasonably to believe that Channel Island  cows were sent to London dairies.

The earliest book which gives a written description of Channel Island cattle is "A compleat body of husbandry. ..... Compiled from the original papers of the late Thomas Hale. Published 1756. And its statement is that of all the dairy cattle in England, "the fine Kinds are the Dutch and Alderney cows, these are very like one another in Shape, and in their Goodness, but the Alderney Cow is  preferable, because she is hardier."

Until about the 1860`s all cattle coming in to England from any of the Channel Islands were known as Alderneys. The probable explanation is simply that the last port of call for cattle boats from the islands was Alderney, the most northerly. These boats were known as the Alderney Packets - hence the cattle were Alderney cattle.

The Fame of the Channel Island cattle

Modern television's Emma Woodhouse. Jane Austen`s novel  from 1816  mentions an Alderney cow.

From the latter part of the 1700s the Channel Islands cattle were often mentioned in English novels and descriptions of the countryside [fx Tobias Smollett`s novel Humphrey Clinker, published 1771] and they appeared in artists paintings and engravings such as the wellknown pencil drawing by Thomas Gainsborough [.-1788].

 In 1771 John Shebbeare stated that " the Jersey cows were esteemed in England for the excellency of their milk".

Chapter XI. Channel Island Cattle

In a "Historical Descriptions of the Channel Islands", published 1777  [Grose's The Antiquities of England and Wales] we have a fully descriptions from each of the islands:
Jersey: "It is finely watered, abounds with fish, fruit, and cattle; makes excellent cyder, has great variety of sea-fowl, the best of honey, fine wool, remarkably fine butter, but labours under a scarcity of corn and fuel, for the latter of which they substitute vraic. Here are manufactured a pecular kind of worsted stockings much esteemed..."
Guernsey: "The air is healthy, and its soil, like Crete and Ireland, is said to admit no noxious animal. It abounds with fish, particularly a fine sort of carp; and its rock produces a kind of emeral, very hard. The island is plentifully supplied with corn and cattle."
Alderney: "It is famous for its cows."
[Alex Glendinning`s Homepage on the Internet]

A manuscript relating to the history of Hampshire from 1778 includes a reference to cattle in Alderney: "The air is healthy, the cornfields good, and the pastures remarkable for a fine breed of cows, yet the inhabitants are poor.." .

The Gentlemens Tea-table
And John Boys in the County of Kent in England wrote in 1796 as follows: "Within these few years, some cows have been brought from the islands of Alderney and Guernsey, for the use of the dairies of gentlemens families. These are a very small ill-made kind of cattle; but they are remarkable for giving milk of a very rich quality, yielding a greater portion of cream, and making more butter from a given quantity of milk, than any other kind of cattle; the butter too is of a beautiful yellow colour, and is highly esteemed for its fine flavour. Whether these kinds of cows will preserve their superiority in this respect many years, if bred and kept in this county, time only can discover; but it is most probable, that soil and climate will operate in the course of time, so that there will be no perceptible difference in the quality of the cream and butter between these and common English cows.
An experiment was tried here last summer between a large home-bred cow, of eight years old,  and a small Alderney, two years old:
The home-bred cow in 7 days, gave 35 gal, which made 10 lb. 3 oz butter
The Alderney cow, in the same time, gave 14 gal, which made 6 lb 8 oz. Butter."

Lord Braybrooke {1750-1825] at Audley End

At Audley End in Essex a herd of Jerseys was kept pure by Lord Braybrooke and his predecessors from l811. Probably the first purebred herd of Jerseys in England. Lord Braybrooke bought some of his animals by John Shurmer.The first known cattle dealer, who imported cattle from the islands to England. Shurmer used to have four or five cows in his cutter. In 1811 he was introduced  to Mr. Michael Fowler by Mr. James Deal, of Southampton  John Thornton: Jersey Cattle and their management. The English Herd Book, Vol.II.- l880.

Queen Victoria made afternoon tea a national pasttime and at four o'clock the whistling kettles could be heard across the land.  It was a time that friends and family got together to enjoy each other and fine food.  People used their best china and presented the food on doily-lined plates set on white tablecloths.
The tea was offered with your choice of lemon or cream and sugar.

Michael Fowler and Sons
The great distribution of the breed in England dates back to 1811, when Mr. Michael Fowler, of Little Bushey, became importer of Alderney, Jersey and Guernsey cows. He was born in Yorkshire, and came to London when eighteen years of age. For years he was travelling partner in the Great West London Dairy. He bought up cows all over the country. Little Bushey Farm was the resting place for them before they finally reached the Dairy, which stood near where Hyde Park Square now stands. On one of his journeys Mr. Fowler passed a man driving a little cow to Barnet Fair, unlike anything he had seen before. On inquiry, the drover told him the cow had been sent a present to his master, who did not like her, and that he was to sell her and ask £9. Mr. Fowler, who had just married and was living at Little Bushey, thought the little cow would be a pretty present for his wife, and offered £7 for her. This was declined; and the man took the cow to the fair, where, however, she, from her small size and appearance, became an object of ridicule among the dealers and drovers. So much so was this the case that the man, far from getting his £9, was glad enough to leave the fair and take the cow home again. Oddly enough, Mr. Fowler overtook him returning, and repeated his offer of £7, which the man at once accepted, with five shillings for himself. The cow calved a few weeks afterwards; and produced for seventeen weeks 14¼ lbs. of butter weekly. This extraordinary yield and the fine quality of the butter so surprised Mr. Fowler, that he determined to find out whence she came, and to get more of the breed. He discovered that she came from one of the Channel Islands.

 Mr. Fowler`s first agent in Jersey was Mr. P. Le Gresley; he was succeeded by Mr. John Le Bas of St. Heliers (who acted in that capacity for Mr. Fowler and his son Mr. L.P. Fowler for upwards of forty years). Mr. Le Bas`s business was dealing and collecting and shipping the animals. The services rendered (in a large measure  due to Mr. Fowler) and estimation in which he was held by his countrymen, was shown by a testimonial, which was presented to him in 1867, with a silver tea and coffee service, salver, and 160 sovereigns.

 Mr. Michael Fowler had four sons, three of whom took to the business -Edward Philip Parsons Fowler, of Southampton; Lawrence Parsons Fowler, of Little Bushey Farm; and Percival Henry Fowler, of Watford. Mr. Edward P.P. Fowler helped his father when a boy; he was a good hand at plating the cows and usually travelled with them to London and through the country. In course of time he started business on his own account; and for twenty-eight years resided in Jersey, leaving the island about ten years since to reside in Southampton. Of the three brothers he does the largest business, and makes about forty passages a year. The breed he considers has greatly improved; whilst prices have almost doubled during the forty years he has been in the trade. The horns and head of the animals in particular have become neater, and the form of the udder is greatly altered for the better.
 The greatest number ever taken over by him was 128, on board a small boat called the "Calpe"; and the "Atalanta" is said, on one occasion, to have brought over 137. Once, when trade was very good, 71 head were sold at Southampton fair. On another occasion, in the days before steamboats came into use, he had a number of cows and several casks of cider on board a sailing ship. The vessel was thirteen days out, and, running short of water, the captain tapped the cider casks. So much did the cows approve of the cider, that they persistently refused to drink water several days after landing.
 When a young man, Mr. E.P.P. Fowler was wrecked off Yarmouth; and again, in 1873, off the coast of France, when the "Germany" was lost. He had then on board 36 cows, 4 rams, 22 dogs, and poultry of all kinds for America. The vessel calling for French emigrants, fell into the hands of a bad pilot, and was wrecked near the Gironde; Mr. Fowler got squeezed between the ship and the life-boat; and was picked up insensible and taken on to Lisbon. His cargo, valued at about £1600, was entirely lost; indeed, this was the case with everything save  his pipe and the clothes he was wrecked in. A scar on his leg will bear testimony to the occurrence to the end of his days.
 To America Mr. E.P.P. Fowler has made many passages. He has sold  cows in New Orleans (where for fifteen years there was a good trade), Philadelphia, Mobile, Baltimore, Cincinnati, Boston, and New York. There is scarcely a large or county town in England which he has not visited, and in which he has not sold cattle. Mr. Duncan in Buckinghampshire bought 113 cows from him. The Rev. John Hill and Mr. Kenyon were good buyers for many years in Shropshire. A great many cattle were sold about Brigg in Lincolnshire; whilst Banbury, Oxford, Birmingham, Derby, Peterborough, Bishops Stortford, and Colchester have all proved excellent centres. The south of Scotland, about Lauder sale for them in all the large towns in Ireland, particularly Dublin and Belfast.
 Her Majesty, at Osborne , and the Duke of Richmond, at Goodwood, have been supplied for many years; and Sit Tatton Sykes in Yorkshire, Sir John Tyrell in Essex, and Sir Richard Bulkeley in Wales, were also old customers. Sir Richard had a great taste for the breed; and three of his best cows were painted by a celebrated artist. This pictures was afterwards given to Mr. Fowler. It represents three beautiful animals, similarly marked, but of different colours. One is a black and white; another a brownish red and white; and the third a grey and white with a darkish face. The white marks are a star on the forehead, a large patch over the top of the shoulders, another on the loin and under the belly, with white hind legs. The black and white and the grey cows have the white rim round the muzzle, but the brown one has not. These colours corroborate an old story on the Island, that no calf was considered good without the star, the white shoulders, loin, and belly.
 Mr. Lawrence P. Fowler has retained most of his father`s old customers, and has been appointed a judge in Guernsey. He supplies the Royal Dairy at Windsor, and many other large establishments. The Duke of Atol`s and the Earl of Rosslyn`s herds in Scotland were also kept up by his importations. About forty animals are sent annually to Edinburgh, where there is a ready sale for him. Several have gone to Hamburg and the Continent, and large shipments were sent to Canada in 1868. It has been a frequent occurrence for families going out to Australia to take a cow on board with them.
 Mr. Percival H. Fowler has sent a good many to America and Canada, as well as to different parts of England; and is supplied in Jersey by Mr. F. Le Brocq, of St. Peters. I have gone thus fully into the business of the Messrs. Fowler, inasmuch as it was through them that the Islands Cattle have spread of late years throughout the United Kingdom.

 There were a few other cattle dealers. Mr. H.J. Cornish, of Thornford Sherborne, Sorsetshire. His grandfather commenced the business about 1836; and his father, ten years later, settled and farmed in St. Saviours, sending over a good number of cattle, which went chiefly into the counties of Dorset, Somerset, Vilts, Gloucester, and Devon; several, too, have been sent to Waterford in Ireland.

Romance and Channel Island cattle
To most Americans, the Channel Islands became associated with the thought of Channel Island cattle. The names Alderney, Jersey and Guernsey brought up memories of the pictures of cows from these islands, painted by Edwin Douglas, and of the well known picture of Alderney Bull, Cow and Calf painted by James Ward.

Chapter XI. Channel Island Cattle, p. 249.

Edwin Douglas

According to E. Parmalee Prentice: This "widely-known painting, now belonging to the Tate Gallery in London, of the Alderney Bull, Cow and Calf , was sent to America in 1823 and remained here for twenty years. This picture  may have helped to make Alderney cattle popular in America". - Large sums of money were paid for Island cattle. Nothing further was needed than to show that a cow or bull or its ancestors came from Jersey or Guernsey and it  became valuable. Everything which has touched the Islands seemed to be tinged with romantic interest. Even the Guernsey lily had an air of mystery for it "is supposed to have come to the Island of Guernsey in an early day by the wreck of some Japanese or Chinese junk."

Philip Dauncey
Lord Braybrooke's herd in Essex , Mr. Selby Lowndes' and Mr. Dauncey's in Buckinghamshire, and the Rev. John Hill's in Shropshire, are among the very few [Jersey] herds that have been kept pure for upwards of half a century [1880]. To  Mr. Philip Dauncey is, however, due the honour of bringing the breed into greater prominence - creating a demand for it, and setting the fashion for whole colours.
John Thornton: Jersey Cattle and their management. The English Herd Book, Vol.II.- l880.

Amongst English breeders who have known what could be done towards obtaining the best points of a milking cow by applying Bakewellian principles of selection, Mr. Philip Dauncey, of Hoorwood, nearly Winslow, Bucks, occupies, or rather occupied, the most distinguished position. For nearly half a century  he devoted his attention to obtaining great milking qualities, symmetry, constitution, and a uniform fawn colour without white. His success  placed him at least half a century in advance of the Channel Islanders. When in 1867 Mr. Dauncey retired from stock farming in consequence of his advanced age, his sixty-nine cows and heifers produced 3285 l. Mr. Majoribanks gave over one hundred pounds for his cow "Landscape", and Mr. Walter Gilbey just under that sum for the heifer "Ban".
 Mr. Dauncey produced a breed much more hardy than the original Channel Islanders; his stock lying out on the pastures throughout the year. The imported Alderneys are delicate, and, on first introduction, require slight shelter in the cold weather, but they soon afterwards become acclimatised.

Illustrated with full page engravings drawn principally from life by Harrison Weir. London. "The Field" office, 346, Strand. 1875.

Mr. Philip Dauncey was born in the previous century. At the time of the publication of the English Herd Book, in 1880, the following reference was made to him: "Mr. Philip Dauncey of Horwood may justly claim to be the father of Jersey breeders in England. Although in his 85th year, his memory is still clear, and his zeal and activity for the improvement of the breed, and for developing its production of butter, are as great as ever. His private herd book is full of quaint and instructive remarks exceedingly interesting to those engaged in breeding Jerseys. With a great taste for rural pursuits, a keen sportsman, and a rare lover of a good horse, he went to reside in Swanbourne (which is in Bucks) in 1821."
The Herd Book goes on to relate that at that time he owned a Suffolk cow; he also purchased a cow called Pug, which had been imported by Mr. Michael Fowler from the Island of Jersey, and which so often appears in the pedigress of the Dauncey stock. Testing her, he found that though she gave but 11 quarts -27½lbs. - of milk, she made 10½lbs of butter a week, as against 101/4 lbs of butter from the Suffolk cow, which gave 21 quarts-52½ lbs - of milk per day. His mind was then made up as to the breed of cows he would keep. He moved from Swanbourne to Horwood four years afterward, and there began the actual work of building up his herd in 1826 by the purchase of Pope 652 E.H.B., the ancestor which so often appears in the pedigrees hereafter referred to, particularly in those of Stoke Pogis and Matilda. Pope was imported from the Island of Jersey by Michael Fowler, and sold by him to Philip Dauncey.
Speaking of some of the individual cows, the Herd Book says: "Brunette, which many considered the best cow at his sale, was a great favorite, and her blood permeated the whole herd. Mr. Dauncey heard of her dam as a wonderful cow, which had made 17 lbs of butter in one week. He rode thirty miles to see her. Mr. Dauncey did not conclude to purchase at that time". Later, while hunting with the Duke of Grafton, he heard that a cow at Cold Higham was an extraordinary butter-maker, and on pulling up at the farm to look at her, Mr. Dauncey at once identified his old acquaintance, Mr. Wight`s cow. Knowing of Welch 930 E.H.B., a very good young bull which he had bred, hard by, he offered Mr. Clarke, as she was then fresh calved, three pounds for her next calf, if he would send the cow to this bull. The produce was Brunette, a beatiful and most useful cow, producing altogether fourteen calves, "which was pushed into the brook by another cow and drowned. Brunette milked well to the last." Violet was another celebrated cow. She was Island bred and came from Col. Le Couteur`s herd, in May, 1845.

Queen Victoria`s Favourite Cattle at Windsor Castle, by Gourlay Steell, 1876. The painting includes Shorthort, Hereford and Jersey cattle.

"The herd at Horwood, as a rule, was kept up to fifty cows, which generally yielded, in butter alone, a thousand pounds a year. The butter always went to London, and for many years Her Majesty`s table was supplied with it. The greatest yield was the first week in June, 1867, when the entire herd of fifty cows made 10½ lbs each cow, and 9½ lbs over." This was for every cow in the herd, young and old, dry or not dry. The average produce the same year, for the whole herd, was within the slightest fraction of 7 lbs per head per week, dry or milking. Twenty-two quarts  (55 lbs) was the highest record for any cow in one day. The reader must bear in mind that an English or imperial quart is about one-fifth in excess of an American quart, each imperial quart weighing 2½ lbs.
"At last,, increasing years, declining health and domestic bereavement induced Mr. Dauncey to offer the entire herd at auction. So strong, however, was his love for his cows that, feeling better, he withdrew the sale when announced for the spring. Autumn`s falling leaf again shook his resolution, and on October 24, 1867, the herd was actually sold." An eye-witness of the sale states: "Nothing but grays, as they are termed, had been admitted at Horwood, although with certain shades, from the light-reddish tint to the duns, fawns, smoke-coloured, with black markings, black tongues and tan muzzles. Mr. Dauncey has been a breeder rather than a buyer, in which he acquired more size and constitution. In going through the herd the first thing that struck the visitor was their fine size and level looks. There were but few of those ragged, razor-backed bags of bones so often supposed to typify good milkers; but most of the cows carried some flesh, with thick, kindly coats, and other such attributes of the hardy, healthy animal. What with their free, graceful carriage and kindly, placid manners they bore about them the very impress of highly-bred, but not over-bred animals. Long and low, level but not fat, their symmetry and condition were equality admirable. No wonder that the Squire is loth to part with them, now that he has fashioned them, as it were, all of a family, for to sketch one is to portray the whole herd. The same dark pointing of the same somber farments is the very livery of the tribe, set of by the gamely-tanned muzzle, the blood like necks and light, deer-like llimbs and movements."

Many Alderneys/Jerseys from The Duke of Bedford, Philip Dauncey and the Royal Herd at Windsor found their way to a home in The New World, where they were hold in high esteem.
