1571 Sir Amyas Paulet was appointed Governor – Tales and Music by Cally Noel

Little did Amyas Paulet know that he was to serve Queen Elizabeth 1st for seventeen eventful years. During these changing times in Jersey he saw the arrival of the strict Calvinist religion from France, which issued innumerable acts against Sabbath-breaking – folk were not allowed to gossip, dance or play skittles, the punishment being a stay in the dungeons of Mont Orgueil Castle. He had to deal with the threat of invasion by the Spanish Armada and to top it all was appointed Mary Queen of Scots Gaoler in 1585.
