Huguenot Heritage: The History and Contribution of the Huguenots in Britain
"Huguenot Heritage: The History and Contribution of the Huguenots in Britain" by Robin D. Gwynn - This book is very, VERY thorough in its discussion of the subject. Gwynn also points out that the official narrative of an English Protestant population eagerly welcoming their French brethren was not really that simple. There WAS opposition in some sectors of society, and considerable pressure for the Huguenots to fully assimilate, including abandoning their Calvinist faith for Anglicanism.

Enamel Huguenot Cross Pendant
The Huguenot Cross is a symbol of the French Protestant Christians. It was based of the Maltese cross to show their love of France and that they where soldiers of Christ. The eight points signify the beatitudes, the wreath the crown of thorns, the four hearts pointing inward that our hearts should be centered on Christ and the dove signifies the Holy Spirit.

John Knox | Founder of a Calvinist Presbytery in Scotland.
John Knox was ordained a Catholic clergyman in French-controlled Scotland. Converted to the Protestant movement by 1545, which led to a ten-year exile in England and Europe where he adopted Calvinist teachings and served English refugee congregations. When French Catholic influence in Scotland collapsed, Knox returned to lead a growing Protestant movement. He is widely regarded as the father of the Protestant Reformation in Scotland and founder of the Church of Scotland.
