Interests and Related Resources

Sometime between 1550 and 1580, members of the Reformed (Protestant) church in predominantly Catholic France came to be commonly known as Huguenots--initially a derogatory term, then one held with pride. They were virulently prosecuted by the French government, in part because many Huguenots were families of wealth who sought political power as well. The height of this persecution was the St. Bartholomew's Day massacre (1572) when 5,000 to 30,000 Huguenots were killed. After that time, tolerance varied; there was a brief period of legal acceptance of Protestant practice, until King Louis XIV made Catholicism the religion of the nation, then outlawed Protestantism entirely in 1685.

By the early 18th century, roughly 500,000 Huguenots had fled France, four thousand of whom emigrated to the North American colonies. Huguenots (with estimates ranging from 200,000 to 1,000,000[1]) also fled to surrounding Protestant countries: England, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Norway, Denmark, and Prussia.

Many Huguenot descendants continued to use French first names and surnames for their children well into the nineteenth century, as they tried to keep some connection to their heritage.
