Chester Parish is a parish covering the north half of Hogeberg Island. The capital is Grijzestad. The representative is Giovanni Spatola of the Green Party.


Chester Parish is one of the oldest Dutch Settlements in the country. In 1411, a Dutch ship sailed to Hogeberg Island and founded Grijzestad. Over the next few years, more and more Dutch came to the islands, while the Venetians lost interest in the Islands. In 1427, the Convention of Grijzestad met in Grijzestad and declared their independence from Venice. There, they signed the now-defunct Grijzestad Constitution. Grijzestad grew, and became capital of Brunant in 1427, and again from 1451-1784. In 1784, during Carrington's invasion of the islands, the people of Grijzestad put up resistance to his invasion, unlike most of the other towns. When his troops defeated the people, he had many of them killed and the town was left destroyed.


Olive farm near Chester Town

Chester Parish is known for its large olive plantations and its world class olive oil. It is usually exported to North America and Lovia. There is also a small wine-producing region, but is rarely exported. Chester Parish produces about 35% of the country's sheep milk, coming mainly from the Hogerberg sheep.

In Chester Parish, the first national park, Dunant National Park, can be found.
