Paul and Madelaine Turquand were Huguenots who, in fear of their lives, left their children in the care of friends and escaped separately from France, to be reunited years later in England. Paul was captured, imprisoned and tortured before being released and escaping to Holland and then to England. Madelaine was hidden on a British ship and taken to Plymouth where she was cared for by kind strangers. Their story is typical of many of the Huguenots, Protestants who fled from France in 16th century.
This history was written by Leonard Turquand in 1814 and the typescript made in 1911
