Dutch Crossing : Journal of Low Countries Studies

The theme of immigration seems to be discussed on an almost daily basis in the British media at the moment. However, as we know, it is not a new phenomenon, but has been an almost permanent feature in the history of Britain. In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, many thousands of people from the Low Countries were forced to leave home and seek a new life elsewhere. Given its geographical proximity it is not surprising that many of these refugees headed for Norfolk in eastern England. Large Dutch and French communities were established in Norwich; there was a smaller Dutch community, which lasted for some 100 years, in Great Yarmouth; and short-lived Dutch communities were established in King’s Lynn and Thetford. The locals referred to the migrants as Strangers, their arrival brought both opportunities and challenges. In the five papers in this edition of Dutch Crossing, various aspects of the history of the Dutch Strangers in Norfolk are considered.
