In 1797 Hugh Godfray and Company, a wine merchant, opened Jersey's first bank, later called the Jersey Old Bank, and reportedsely issued 1 notes. No examples of the Hugh Godfray and Company banknotes have been found.

Due to the shortage of livre tournois coinage, private non-gouvernmnent individuals and companies issued a large number of low value notes. In 1813 Jersey required that notes had to have a minimum value of 1. Until 1831, a large number of bodies and individuals in Jersey issued their own banknotes.

  parishes of Jersey issued notes, as did the Vingtaine de la Ville. Legislation in 1831 attempted to regulate such issues by requiring note issuers to be backed by two guarantors, but the parishes and the Vingtaine de la Ville were exempted from the regulatory provisions.

Most of the notes were 1 pound denominations, although at least two 5 pound issue was made. These locally produced notes, which were often issued to fund public works, ceased to be issued after the 1890s.
