Huguenots Of Darcy - a Memory of Tolleshunt D'Arcy.
During the '70s I visited the memorial at Tolleshunt D'Arcy with Gilbert John Olley, his grandfather having settled in the area during the 19th century growing capers on their smallholding for the London market. Alice Olley told us that her husband's family originated from two Huguenot brothers, although we have found no evidence of this.
