Hello again I rembered that I have a copy of a letter from the Huguenot society nov1969. this was sent by Miss Ellis to my Uncle Jack. She must have done her research there. She was often over here. My cousin told me last week Uncle Jack had been interested. so she sent him it.Thought I'd type a bit of it to share with you.
The family of Noquet came from Poitou and fled to this country after the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes. In, "Le Bulletin de la Societe de l'Histoire du Protestant Francais", there is a note of a "Memoire" written by a Protestant Pastor while in prison. the Memoire is unsigned and undated but is said to be aabout 1696. the past says that there were about 30 or 50 Protestants in prison with him,one of whom was - Abraham Noquet, notif d'une grosse ferme appelee Lacroix Labe, paroisse de Celle, dans le Province du Poitou, ou il etait fermier, qu'il mon cousin. Apres avoir propose quelques annees, il s'est sauve en Angleterre. The name Abraham is a name which was handed down to following generations in England and as there were several Abraham Noquets in London at the same time I imagine that they were cousins. named after a common grandfather.
There is a lot more, extracts from published registers of the Huguenot churches in London. I'll type some more if you'r interested. Regards Sylvie
