English [dZ]

How did the letter |J| come to represent [dZ] in English, while
continuing to represent [j] in the other Germanic languages?  Was it
because of French influence?  I assume there was a period when |J|
represented [Z] in English, between representing [j] and [dZ]... do we
know when the change(s) happened?
