Berthelot Street, St. No general act of naturalisation was ever passed in relation to French refugees, and they retained their status as "free denizens", first offered by Charles II, through the first generation. When defendants and prosecutors did not speak English they were normally provided with a translator. A special jury could also be empanelled comprising six foreigners and six native Englishmen. Unlike other migrants, French refugees were not described using a language of race, and were seldom specifically identified in the Proceedings.
This lack of specific identification is made more problematic by the tendency until at least the middle of the nineteenth century for all foreigners, of whatever nationality, to be labelled "French". The best strategies involve using keyword searching. Terms that will produce a reasonable number of examples include:. Using more general terms results in an unacceptable error rate. Searches on terms such as French produces trials in which French goods are mentioned, but are not useful in identifying trials involving French refugees.
It is more useful to construct complex queries. Good results can be achieved by combining appropriate keywords, such as:. One can locate the trials involving violence between journeymen weavers and their masters by searching by offence. For political trials involving specific groups, keyword searching using contemporary terms, frequently gains good results. A search on Anarchist , for instance, produces around sixteen trials. A sharp eye for French names, such as Champion , Rondeau or Bourdon , is required in order to identify which of the individuals thrown up through this kind of searching were likely to have been French.
