Extracted by John Lerwill (page created 2000AC), with subsequent feedback from Devon researchers.
The following is an extracted list of Huguenot names from "The Huguenots of Devonshire" by Inkerman Rogers (late of Bideford), which may be of interest. Please note that the names listed are NOT only connected with Huguenots, but indicates Huguenot immigrants who had these family names and for whom entries can be found in the Barnstaple registers, which start from 1538. There will be other entries in the Bideford and Torrington registers, for example, plus Plymouth and Exeter.
