    Was reading this, seems a little far-fetched but interesting read. It is possible that a good number of them are.

    I have one family line in my tree that apparently has Huguenot roots. This line apparently migrated to Britain during the 1600s or so.

    idk but according some historians 50.000 of those expelled Moriscos of Spain arrived to France.
    In any case those Moriscos were not racially Moors but Iberians converted to Islam.

    To be perfectly honest, my first impulse was to laugh at the article, but then I got to thinking. Many Huguenots were indeed from the Midi ( including Paul Revere's family) and the Pyrenean area of France does border Spain. I would say that if a particular Huguenot family was descended from Moors, it would be due to a certain infusion of Iberian blood ( that's just a thought. All my French blood, be it from Pays de la Loire, Alpes de Haute Provence, Isere, Lorraine, Normandy, Brittany, Aquitaine, etc., was carried by proud Catholics, so I'm not exactly an expert on Huguenot ethnography).

    some of those huguenots tried to settle in Florida or Georgia (don't remember exactly) as the first american colony of France.
    they were massacred by spanish troops specially sent there by Felipe II, a utterly anti-protestant king, and these troops founded San agustin, the first european settlement in Florida which lasted more than a few months and bla bla bla.

    So if the huguenots were 'moors' spanish troops were only keeping old traditions alive.

    Moor doesn't means North African but Muslim. And most Moors were just Iberians converts.

    Yep, in Florida. Huguenots tried to form a colony called Fort Caroline but Pedro Menndez de Avils discovered and killed them "not by French, but by heretics".
