    • "Antoine Aufrere (c.1625-1701), Marquis de Corville, the family were Calvinists, and foreseeing the ending of the religious toleration provided by Henri IV's Edict of Nantes, he took steps to dispose quietly of as much of his property as he could and to remit the proceeds to safe keeping in Holland. When the Edict was revoked in 1685, he and his family fled to Holland, where realised assets of some 225,000 livres enabled them to live relatively comfortably. Antoine Aufrere's eldest son, Israel Antoine Aufrere (1667-1758), studied at the University of Leiden and was ordained as a Calvinist minister in 1696. In 1698 he came to London and was licensed as a preacher to the Huguenot community, and in 1700 he was ordained in the Church of England. At the same time, the rest of the family followed him to England, perhaps feeling that England offered more secure religious freedom for Protestants." and
      "I am unacquainted with the date of the year when the family fled from France to Holland, but probably it was very soon after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685; nor can I say how long they remained in Holland nor when they removed to England; but it must have been before the year 1701, for Antoine the Refugee died in London on the 7 th of September in that year. -
