The 'Strangers' in Norwich
There has always been movement of people between Norwich and Europe. In 1565 the city authorities in Norwich arranged for 30 households of religious refugees from the Netherlands to settle in the city. Six of the households were French speaking Walloons and the other 24 spoke Dutch, or Flemish.
More refugees followed: a return of aliens made in 1568 and preserved in the Norwich city archives lists 1,132 Flemings and 339 Walloons in the city.
By 1579 there were 6,000 'strangers' in a population of about 16,000--so that they made up over a third of the population, the largest percentage in any town in England, although the actual number of immigrants settling in London was greater. Most of all the immigrants were weavers. They were organized by a committee known as the Governors of the Drapery and by their church leaders. They appointed 'politic men' (eight Dutchmen and four Walloons) to be their representatives in dealing with the English. Some followed other trades and professions.
The Dutch community worshipped in the Blackfriars church in St.Andrew's Hall, the French in the Bishop's Palace until 1637, then in the unused church of St.Mary the Less in Queen Street until 1820.
