The Society owes its origins to a suggestion by Lord Chesham, at the Wray Park Sale of May 10th 1878, that the time had arrived to establish a Herd Book for English Jersey Cattle. The response was enthusiastic and upwards of 150 breeders subsequently lent their support. Today, the Society numbers some 1300 members and in April 1979, as it celebrates its Centenary, it will be the recipient of an unique honour, when Her Majesty The Queen accepts its Presidency.
