HUETS were HUGUENOTS

Journal by marbra

Huguenot was the name given to people of a protestant religion fleeing from religious persecution in France.This happened over several centuries.People fled to countries such as Britian,Ireland,Germany,Holland,Switzerland,Sweden,Norway,America.

At one time because most of the farmers and businessmen had fled France it was in dire straits.

The Huguenots in London were probably one of the first to care for their own.Any new immigrant was given help by the church and cared for in later life,paying monies to old and widows.I think there might even be a hospital today that cares for Huguenot decendants.
