This chapter discusses the French immigrants who created the community in which the Huguenots were able to integrate so painlessly. It describes the inauguration of an official French-speaking community in London, which dates from the foundation of the French church by a royal grant of Edward VI in 1550. The bulk of the church's members came not from France but from the Netherlands. These French-speaking Netherlanders or Walloons made up two-thirds of the church's members, as of the French-speaking community in London as a whole. This chapter also describes the role played by the French community in the turbulent period of the Glorious Revolution and the role and influence it exercised in the late Stuart period.
