    • Jeremy Bangs notes:

      "The Mahieu family came from the area of Lille....Formerly it was part of Walloon Flanders. Heavily Protestant, the area was captured by Catholic armies under Parma in 1578, and many Walloon Calvinists fled to England directly, while others fled north towards the Protestant cities of Bruges and Antwerp. When those cities fell in 1585, refugees went across to Englandor north to Zeeland and Holland. We may assume that Hester Mahieu's parents were among these refugees, taking with them their young daughters Mary and Francoise. Hester was evidently born in Canterbury, although the Walloon Church records there do not contain references to the family. It is quite possible that her father was Jacques Mahieu.... Jacques Mahieu and his, whose name was not recorded, were received into communion in the Leiden Walloon Church on 10 June 1590, with letters of transfer from the Walloon Church in London...." [3]

      The father of Jeanne, Hester, Antoinette, Francois, and Marie was very probably Jacques Mahie u. He was a witness to the betrothal of Francoise Mahieu and Daniel Cricket. He and his wife (name not recorded) received communion in the Leiden Walloon Church on 10 Jun 1590, with letters of transfer from the Walloon Church in London, dated 30 April 1590.

      He came from Lille, now in the northern part of France. Formerly it was of Walloon Flanders. Heavily protestant, the area was captured by Catholic armies under Parma in 1578, and many Walloon Calvinists fled to England directly, while others fled north towards teh Protestant cities of Bruges and Antwerp. When those cities fell in 1585, refugees went across to England or north to Zeeland and Holland. Apparently the Jacques Mahieu was among these refugees, taking with them their young daughters Mary and Franciose.
