Re: MIGNON family

I have recently discovered members of the Mignon family in my grandchildrenss ancestors and would like more information about further ancestors if possible.
There is an interesting article about the family in "Heraldic Illustrations" by J. and J.B. Burke, available through Google Books, which states that they were originally of English extraction. One Sir William de la More accompanied Edward III to France and fought in the Battle of Cressy. It was his descendants who stayed in France and became Protestants, and therefore Huguenot refugees at the revocation of the Edict of Nantes.
Best wishes
