English term or phrase: goodwyf
You'll meet the goodwyf -- the wife or mistress of the house -- who will transport you back to the 1640s with true tales and Jersey gossip.
After the museum tour, enjoy a scenic drive back to port through the island's diverse landscapes of wonderful beaches, medieval castles, old granite farmhouses, wisteria-clad cottages, fields of Jersey cows, and country pubs.
