Although my grandparents emigrated from Ireland, they do not have an Irish surname. I have long wondered if perhaps they themselves are Huguenot descendants. This book is a wealth of information, not only for those of us who are descended from western European Protestants, but for those who are interested in the history of the mid Atlantic states. It also details well the considerable loss of skilled tradesmen France suffered because of its paranoid persecution of its Protestant population. There is still one Huguenot congregation with a gorgeous church in Charleston, SC.
