https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Huguenots
40,000 Arrived in the UK and 70.000 to the Netherlands....Do or Die.

Around the year 1700 Amsterdam had a population of nearly 25% of Huguenots , high when you consider, and they intermarried into the Dutch from the offset.
England Patronised and helped protect the Huguenots starting with Queen Elizabeth 1st in 1562. There was a small naval Anglo-French War 1627-1629 in which England supported the French Huguenots against Louis XIII of France. London financed the emigration of many to England and its colonies around 1700

I have all I can do to tie small knots, never mind huge ones.

I finished reading this last night. So it took me 4 months to get through it.

Interesting stuff.

Not surprised at all.
Many people in the UK slag off the French for whatever reason...but little do they realise that most have some French blood running through their veins..When they landed they breed big time...
One time in the Capital ... London's West End..The population was more of a French population than an English one.
So is simple to see why the French genes are firmly in the English....

Particularly early in the book, one of the things that stuck in my mind were the punishments they handed out to many of the heretics. Those stories you read in history books about burning people alive at the stake were really true ... and that wasn't even the worst of the punishments.

Somewhat fortunately, I suppose, is that some people even back then thought those punishments were rather cruel.

There is always going to be good people amongst any mix.
.. I can remember reading that so many changed their names when making the journey out of France to their chosen Country.
So they used place names for one but can't find the article to quote that find.
So there must be written proof somewhere, that maybe there is people with say Canterbury... London... Dover to name just 3.
So do you have any connections with the Huguenots?

Personally, no I have no connection to the Huguenots. I've just been reading a lot of European history lately, particularly as it related to religion.
