Champions from Normandy : An Essay on the Early History of the Champion de Crespigny Family 1350-1800 Ad
A history of the Champion de Crespigny family of Normandy from 1350 to 1800. They were Huguenot refugees who settled in England following the revocation of the Edict of Nantes. This is the story of a long-lived but essentially minor family in France, just within the fringes of the gentry, whose lineage can be traced in the male line back to the mid fourteenth century, who prospered from their Huguenot connection, but acquired their greatest good fortune when they were forced into exile in England.
