    Huguenots were French Protestants exiled from France due to the revocation of the Edict of Nantes (which gave France some limited freedom of religion)

    Presbyterians are a Protestant group that is similar to Calvinism. It was started by a certain John Knox, a Scottish Protestant reformer

    Huguenots were French Protestants in the 16th,17th,and 18th centuries.Their brand of Protestantism was closely based on Calvinism.

    Presbyterians are a Protestant denomination also based on Calvinism.In 16th and 17th century England and Scotland,Presbyterians were the largest Puritan group.However,Presbyterians were not as extreme Puritans as some other groups around at the same time,and were in fact seen as rather lightweight Puritans by Cromwell and some others.
