french huguenots
« on: Monday 19 December 05 20:11 GMT (UK) »
       I have recently made contact with someone researching the same family as myself. He is convinced this line of the family is decendent from French huguenots( and has traced as far back as 1660)
     
       I would like to look further into this but don't know where to start.
Anyone know when the hugenauts began fleeing to England and did they settle in a particular area. also any name lists or records that might be worth looking for.

       By the way the family surname is Jaques.

http://www.huguenotsociety.org.uk/ - this is probably a good place to start looking for what sources there might be.  The main time for emigration was post 1685, the year of the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes, but some left earlier.  There were Huguenot churches set up in London, where about half the emigrants ended up staying, particularly in areas like Shoreditch and Spitalfields.  (Some also went to Ireland).

The main industry traditionally associated with the Huguenots in London is silk-weaving, and textile manufacture in general.

Hi Jones,

            Would you please look up Jaques for me. They were in the printing trade and my contact has them marrying into the Dennett family late 1600s. They were living in Newington, Midhurst, Chichester.

             Thanks Floss.
