Huguenot families - Noquet/Silk/Poulain

I am descended from Abraham Noquet, a silk weaver of Celle en Poitou around 1680, via his grandson Robert Noquet, married to Mary NIALS, and their daughter Elizabeth who was baptised 1818 and married Benjamin DODGE, baptised 1813. Robert and Mary were married 1809 in East London. By this time the family had been settled in London since about 1695. Robert and Mary had several children besides Elizabeth, including Frederick who was older, Charles and Isaac, who was well-known in Bethnal Green. Abraham Noquet had 3 wives, Susanne Deschamps, Jeanne Fourchette and Anne Marguerite Poulain. Among these women Abraham had at least 22 children. Anne Marguerite Poulain is my ancestress and was Abraham's 3rd wife. The family continued to be silk weavers and dyers until towards the end of the 19th century.
