    The Huguenot emigrants 1680 History of Charleston the french Church

    The Huguenot emigrants, who only arrived in Charleston 1680 to
    1686, began their "French Church" in Charleston about 1687 in the
    upper part of Charlestons Church Street on land conveyed by Ralph
    Izard and Mary his wife (a Miss Middleton) for that pur-
    pose. Isaac Mazyck, one of Charlestons earliest and wealthiest
    emigrants of their race, gave generously to Charleston. At the other end of Church Street were the
    Baptists, on land in Charleston given by William Elliott, and the Quak-
    ers had a " Friends' Meeting House ' outside the walls,
    near to the present King Street in Charleston.

    Thus in ten years from the founding of Charleston  or
    CharlesTown there was no lack of places of worship; it is remarkable
    that although no one of the original buildings in Charleston remains
    churches still stand upon each of these sites, belong-
    ing to the same organizations and denominations. The
    " Friends' is the only exception to this. The building
    was destroyed by fire, and there being no Quakers now in
    Charleston  it was never rebuilt ; but the lot is kept sacred,
    and is still owned by the society.

    So far the people of all these various denominations
    were, with the exception of a few Dutch, from Nova-Belgia,
    descendants of Great Britain, subjects of the King ; but now
    from 1680 to 1688 came the French Huguenots, strangers
    and aliens, into this English community.
