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


In 1839 Saint-Jean-de-Day, having recorded just 352 registered inhabitants in 1836, absorbed the adjacent Le Mesnil-Véneron commune of 200 people. However, the ensuing decade saw economic and demographic growth and in 1847 Le Mesnil-Véneron was reinstated as a separate commune.[1]
