Lots of Huguenots ended up all over Europe after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685. Many of them were lace makers and were heavily involved in lace making at Nottingham in England. What is not so well known is the lace making industry of Darvel/Newmilns in the upper Irvine Valley in Ayrshire. It is quite probable that Huguenot lace makers came there. There are claims of some Caldwell families in the USA that the Caldwell's in Scotland were originally Huguenot lace makers. This I find hard to believe but it is possible that the Huguenot connection came from a female line. I am researching both Caldwells from that area and also Matthew Walker b Newmilns 31/5/1767.
