French Refugees in Great Britain in the early 1700s

Abbreviations

Cl Class

G Gentleman
M Middleclass or Bourgeoisie (from the 1705 preface "The Title of Bourgeois has commonly a very large signification, and it was taken in that sense in the very List of the Bourgeoisie. However, it has been restrained to another sense in several Articles, and made use of to denote such of the French Refugees, who having no particular Profession, Trade, or Calling, liv'd in their Country upon their Estates.")
C Commoner
O Orphan (this includes abandonned children in the 1725 accounts)
D Persons of different orders
S School master/mistress
A Apothecary, doctor, surgeon, or medical supplies
P Preachers
F Confesser (from the 1705 preface "Altho' the Denomination of Confessers of Truth may be in general extended to all those , who for the Cause of the Gospel have forsaken their Estates, and quitted the Advantages they were possessed of in their Country, yet that Title has been restrained here to those who have suffer'd on Board the Gallies, in Prisons, or undergone some extraordinary Vexations, and whom God has been pleased to bring out of their tribulations, and so supported them, that they never complied inany thing that they may prejudice their Consciences. Tis in this last sense that the Title of Confessors, given to several Persons of both Sexes in these accounts, must be taken.")
