Dutch Huguenots in Britain

June 17, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Join us for a talk as part of the Battle of Medway Commemorations. Migrants from the Low Countries came in large numbers bringing craft skills and knowledge. The largest number came as Protestant refugees during Elizabeth I’s reign, and established communities and churches in this country. Many of us trace our ancestors to these Dutch refugees.

Silke Muylaert has finished her doctoral studies concerning Dutch and Walloon Protestant refugees in Elizabethan England at the University of Kent.
