I am researching Polish exiles from the 1830 uprising, who came to Jersey I started a few years ago with a blog: jouault.wordpress.com/2014/04/05/notes-on-polish-in-jersey/
Thanks to a Polish researcher I started looking for exiles again and now have found 50+ who visited or stayed in Jersey, several were politically active and are well known, most notably Stanislaw Worcell although I have found no offical record of him in Jersey there are a couple of references to him spending time in Jersey. Here is the list I have so far and apologies for the spelling, I will try and correct them when I have the time:
Jules Pierre OstojaMarylski
Jean Nepomucene Oiszewski
John Francis Nikolaywicz Sobolewski
D A Turniski
Vincent Joseph Sigismond Zielanowicz
Nick Jouault - Jersey
Apologies as I have only just seen this comment on Kumpkiewicz what I have found is the following bits: Alien arrivals: Arrived Dover May 1834. 1837 November Jersey to Southampton.
Married St Helier 21st November, 1837, Sarah Prudence Arrowsmith (Kent). 10/11/1837.
Exeter Court January 1866 sentenced 6 weeks hard labour for begging letters. I may have more details on this.
My help in Poland says he was known as a Russian spy.
I have now found 80+ exiles who visited or stayed in Jersey, some interesting new finds are the works of Roch Rupniewski "Niezbudki Jerseyskie" available on polona.pl And Seweryn Korzelinski who wrote "Wyspa Jersey" an account of his time and views on Jersey.
I would welcome any help in translating bits of the above works, Rupniewski's I am only interested in the poems who wrote on fellow exiles all who stayed in Jersey. I dont speak a word of Polish.
Thanks Nick from Jersey
