MEMORIALS OF THE HUGUENOTS IN AMERICA, with Special Reference to their Emigration to Pennsylvania

Rev. A. Stapleton

The emigration of the French Protestant Huguenots to Pennsylvania is intimately related to the great Palatine exodus. The latter movement had its origin in much the same causes which led the Huguenots to flee from their homes and seek a new destiny in unknown lands. Hence, both Huguenot and Palatine, with an almost identical faith, tired of murder, rapine, fire, sword and spoliation under the guise of the Christian religion, seem to have joined in heart and purpose in working out a common destiny in the New World. There are many more Huguenot names among us with a very thin Teutonic veneer over it and which the keen eye of genealogical research will yet uncover. There are also many German family names with Huguenot traditions. This work contains comprehensive genealogical data on many emigrants and lists over 1000 Huguenot refugees with their dates of arrival and places of residence. An indispensable work for anyone with Huguenot or Pennsylvania ancestors.
