An instructive history, this remarkable work recounts the causes leading to the persecution of the French Protestants and traces their emigration from France to England and Ireland. It examines the history of Huguenot settlements and churches and draws particular attention to the contribution and influence of the Huguenots in the British Isles. The most interesting feature of the work, to the genealogist, is the collection of 300 biographies of noted Huguenot refugees who settled in Britain. Considering the nature and scope of the biographies, this section should go a considerable distance in enabling the researcher to make a positive identification of a Huguenot ancestor. Additionally, the work contains an important section on the Huguenots in America by G. P. Disoway, featuring histories of the Huguenots in Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Virginia.
