Saint-Jean-de-Daye is a commune in the Manche department in Normandy in north-western France.

History[edit]

In 1839 Saint-Jean-de-Day (with just 352 registered inhabitants in 1836) absorbed the adjacent Le Mesnil-Véneron commune (200 inhabitants). The ensuring decade was one of economic and demographic growth, however, and in 1847 Le Mesnil-Véneron was reinstated as a separate commune.[1]
