This chapter emphasizes that the nonconformist church policies which were introduced at the accession of William and Mary encouraged the Huguenots, who had already settled in the Dutch Republic and Germany, to re-emigrate to England, evidently appreciating the larger measure and firmer guarantees of toleration on offer in England in the wake of the Glorious Revolution. The Huguenots, in terms of religion, were exceptionally privileged, in that they continued to enjoy as foreigners and aliens — as long as they remained members of foreign Reformed churches authorized by the Crown — exemption from the penalties of the Act of Uniformity of 1622.
