He had until 10 a. Up above them on the cliffs, the inhabitants of the town came to watch and await Tate's response to the ultimatum. Tate tried to delay it but eventually accepted the terms of the unconditional surrender and, at 2 p. The French piled their weapons and by 4 p. Meanwhile, Cawdor had ridden out with a party of his Pembroke Yeomanry Cavalry to Trehowel farm to receive Tate's official surrender. Unfortunately the actual document has been lost.
After brief imprisonment, Tate was returned to France in a prisoner exchange in , along with most of his invasion force. A legendary heroine, Jemima Nicholas , is reported to have gone out single-handed with a pitchfork into the fields, rounded up twelve French soldiers and escorted them to town where she locked them inside St.
Cooke and Neale chased after them, engaging them for half an hour, after which both French ships surrendered. There were no casualties or damage on either of the British ships, while the two French ships lost 18 killed and 15 wounded between them. Castagnier, on board Le Vengeance , made it safely back to France. When the news hit London a few days later, there was a run on the Bank of England by holders of banknotes , attempting to convert them into gold a right enshrined in the wording that still exists on English notes of "I promise to pay the bearer on demand This act, which turned all banknotes from "convertible" to "inconvertible" notes, suspended these so-called 'specie payments' until This move was perhaps inevitable owing to high taxation levels in place to fund the Napoleonic Wars , but the Battle of Fishguard immediately preceded the first occasion when banknotes issued by a central bank could not be redeemed for the underlying wealth that they represented, a precedent that has defined the modern use of banknotes ever since.
In , amidst fears of another invasion by the French, Lord Palmerston conferred upon the Pembroke Yeomanry the battle honour " Fishguard ".
This regiment, still in existence as Pembroke Yeomanry Squadron of the Royal Logistic Corps , has the distinction of being the only unit in the British Army , regular or territorial, to bear a battle honour for an engagement on the British mainland. It was also the first battle honour awarded to a volunteer unit. In contrast to the debacle at Fishguard, this expedition saw some bloody fighting in which hundreds were killed in the Battle of Castlebar.

As early as , one Jettenbach family had left the village for fresh opportunities in America. In the late 18th century, many individuals and families sought better incomes in the Danube Monarchy and Russia. In a compromise between the two princely houses competing to inherit the locality, it was agreed that, from , Jettenbach would be ceded permanently to the Electorate of the Palatinate. This arrangement, however, did not long endure.
From the turn of the nineteenth century, French Revolutionary intervention swept away the arrangements of historical ruling class and with it their traditional lordship over Jettenbach. This period, and the Napoleonic era which followed it saw the region under French rule for a further period.
Under the French , the mayoralty belonged to the French canton of Wolfstein, the arrondissement of Kaiserslautern, and the department of Mont-Tonnerre or Donnersberg in German. For a time, under French Revolutionary and Napoleonic rule, village emigration ceased. Instead, Jettenbach had to endure a period characterised by the influx of troops on the march, their demands for supplies and their presence when stationed or billeted in the village. Under the post-war settlement devised by the Congress of Vienna , which took effect in , the Palatinate was annexed to the Kingdom of Bavaria.
Thenceforth, Jettenbach belonged to the canton of Wolfstein and the Landkommissariat of Kusel. Jettenbach remained part of the canton of Wolfstein into the 20th century.
This forced many to seek other livelihoods. A surplus of artisans and crafts-folk unable to sell most of their wares led to further waves of emigration in the midth century. Almost exclusively, the emigrants flocked to the United States.
The last wave of village emigration involving about people occurred in the 20th century's interwar period. Isolated as an exclave of the Kingdom of Bavaria, the Palatinate experienced unique economic problems. This led to local efforts to split the Palatinate from Bavaria, culminating in the Palatine Uprising.
In Jettenbach, candidate-teacher, Jettenbach-born Ludwig Heinrich Hauber promoted his ideas of Palatine separatism and freedom taking leave from his post in Katzweiler to dedicate himself to the cause. The next day, Hauber mobilised the Landsturm to repel the advancing Prussians. With few guns at their disposal, most relied on farm implements such as scythes , pitchforks , and flails.
Armed with these primitive weapons, they hoped to beat the Prussian army. These volunteers agreed on the precaution that at the first sign of danger they would return to their homes, promptly doing so as the Prussians drew nearer. Deserted by his troops, and before seeing a single Prussian, Hauber decided to flee. Small improvements came after the Franco-Prussian War partly due to the Wandermusikanten. This saw whole orchestras from Jettenbach seeking their livelihood elsewhere by performing across of Europe and other parts of the world.
Their added buying power and consequent upsurge in building activity was primarily responsible for an improved economic outlook. Whole rows of buildings went up and village life was reinvigourated. By the turn of the 20th century, Jettenbach had over one thousand inhabitants. This short golden period ended with the outbreak of the First World War. Many men from Jettenbach were conscripted to fight for the Kaiser. Many never came home. After the war, times were hard, with few job opportunities.
About , there was already a local Nazi cell in Jettenbach, allied to the local group Ortsgruppe in Kollweiler, founded in In , when Adolf Hitler seized power , the Nazis gained control of every seat on the municipal council.
The Nazis provided make-work projects benefiting the jobless. Eventually it employed over workers. With the outbreak of the Second World War , most men fit for service were conscripted. The shortfall in agricultural labour was offset by prisoners of war from France and slave labour from the German-occupied territories in Eastern Europe. Jettenbach went through the war unscathed by direct military action, though near war's end, as German troops withdrew ahead of the Allied advance, they were often billeted temporarily in Jettenbach.
The last German troops left Jettenbach about midday on 17 March Outside the village, they quickly found themselves under attack by American airmen. Just over two days later, the first United States Army troops arrived in the village. Of all the changes that Jettenbach has undergone, the post-war ones have been the most far-reaching. Pre-war Jettenbach was a village of farmers, craftsmen, musicians, and workers. Post-war, these old economic foundations changed within a few years for most people.
Some Musikanten dreamt of a revival, but reality forced them to realise these glory days were over. An upturn in the construction industry created further jobs.
In Jettenbach, the farm sector shrank steadily. This also affected the associated handicraft sector with which it had close business links. Today, visitors see a village that is almost entirely residential. Farming can now only be seen at one of the so-called Aussiedlerhöfe farming hamlets established in modern times , two of which have already closed.
In , Jettenbach was grouped into the newly formed Verbandsgemeinde of Wolfstein. Few handicraft businesses remain. A butcher 's shop and grocery with baked goods ensures the availability of basic local foodstuffs.
The stone quarry run by Basalt AG is the village's economic mainstay. Here, the stone is processed and then either stored in silos for sale or stockpiled in a storage area for onward transport. The yearly yield can be up to , metric tons. The quarry business linked to a bitumen mixing complex.
This was the first time that Jettenbach qualified for the state level, placing seventh. This was based mainly on the forward-looking heating plants wood pellets and woodchips , the solar and photovoltaic complexes, and clear strides in local nature conservation in the municipality. As early as , there documents record the first emigrant to America from Jettenbach. In the late 18th century, there was emigration to southeastern Europe , and, after , to Poland and Bavaria.
In the 19th and 20th centuries, there were phases of heavy emigration to the United States. In the 19th century, saw the rise of the Wandermusikantentum industry, in which local inhabitants travelled all over Europe and further afield as musicians. Despite waves of emigration, a continuous rise in population figures was recorded, although more recently, this has levelled off.
The Wandermusikanten fostered their own family and speech peculiarities, their own customs, and their own specific garb. Their speech was enriched with words drawn from the various languages with which they came into contact while they were abroad. In , Jettenbach had 35 families, and, therefore, roughly inhabitants. In , there were inhabitants, and, in , 1, Whether, in fact, there was a person whose name was connected with this jetto is unknown. It is thus assumed that whoever the first settlers were, they had to weed German: Among other forms of the name that are known are Jettenbach , Gyttenbach , Obergittenbach and Niedergittenbach , Gettenbach , Göttenbach and Jettenbach once again.
A single legal document from is all the proof that there is that this village even existed, and even at the time that that was written, the settlement had already been abandoned. Then, though, the number of Catholics began to grow slowly.
In , there were 63 Catholics in the village.
