Default Huguenots

https://www.history.com/topics/franc...20and%20Africa.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Huguenots

list of more well known Huguenots, just so it makes towards some interest, which is not easy with religion.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Huguenots


the first two links have a lot of the same so just saying...so just one would give you the run down...

this link goes on to explain why tracing ancestors is not alway so easy..name changes occurred for different reasons..mainly out of fear.

I recently got, from Amazon, the only comprehensive English language history of the Huguenots, written in 1879:
History of the Rise of the Huguenots, Volumes I and II by Henry M Baird

Will read it after I'm done with my current book.

Read that book and quite heavy of course and it is available free online which is useful for anybody that like's History. The Huguenots left there marK. One side of the Family name is Aumonier and it means Chaplain/Bishop so some searching it just says that,Chaplain, make's ancestry just a tad more difficult. Some where Famous Sculptures so left their mark, one being outside East Finchley Station of the Archer..Eric Aumonier. Surprising as the Huguenots where strict Protestants he became of a Catholic Bishop from 2001-2020 when he resigned. He was the Bishop of Versaille.His grandfather William Senior done a lot of restoration on St. Paul's Cathedral....

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Protestantism

The French Huguenots were terrorised purely for following their Religion which is strict Protestantism.
King's normally were in the power seat and always Catholics,they varied in their hatred of the Protestants, but really looking at the bigger picture it was Power that they wanted.
Step in Comte Schomberg, a Protestant who refused to become a Catholic and yet he became A Marshall in France in 1676. His Religion was suddenly not important to the King as his worth was obvious by his titles, Religion is used as a weapon more so than a faith in my view..so he got the top dog's job a Marshall amongst many other titles he gained before that and along the way. The family had already had a long History in France.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freder...e_of_Schomberg

This 2nd link below explains more of the History and Religion of Schomberg whose name was really Friedrich Hermann von Schönberg but changed when he landed in France.

I started reading this last night. Will take me a while to get through it - that 19th century writing is very dense. Let's see how long it takes me, I'm predicting 6 months.
