Guernsey is a small island located in the English Channel. An Anglo-Norman population. This island is located closer to the French coast than to the English one.
At the close of the Napoleonic wars, the island, like several countries, was in pitiful condition, both physically and financially.
Sea walls, roads, markets were needed.There was no manpower shortage. but there was no money to pay for these works.
The money used by the people on the island was the money from England, the pound sterling. But, like after any war, the financiers were calling back the money advanced to finance the slaughter, and the pounds sterling were very scarce everywhere.
