Skills of the Huguenots
Huguenots were remarkably talented in almost every sphere that you can think of. Medicine, Science, Engravers and Printsellers, Theatre, Furniture and Woodwork, Sculpture, Gunmaking, Goldsmiths, Textiles, Ceramics and City Commerce. Many of them fled France by stealth and by night bringing nothing with them at all. They were entrepreneurs and saw England as a new home where they could settle, worship and carry on working. They brought techniques, skills and the much wanted French style with them and many were outstanding craftsmen. Their legacy remains today.
