'The Ancestor'identifies this family as "In the first rank of the Huguenot families settled in England" and reports that the following Pieter "was born at Wulverghem in Flanders, and holding the reformed doctrine was so well advised as to remove himself and his family out of the reach of the claws of Inquisitor Titelmann." BEB1841 reports that the following Peter "fled from the persecution of the Duke of Alba." BP2003 (Tryon) reports that he "migrated from the Spanish Netherlands c1562".

  VCH (Rutland, vol 2, ''Parishes: Seaton with Thorpe-by-Water') reports that Charles Tyron, presumably this one though the dates are not right, sold Bulwick "about 1771 to Lord Galway for his son, the Hon. John Monckton". However, that may have applied only to the Manor as BLG1886 suggests that Bulwick Park remained in the family. See the lower section (below).

As reported above, it appears that at least part of the family's estates at Bulwick were sold in 1777. BP2003 reports that the following Thomas was "presumably kin" of the above-mentioned Moses, and it does seem to be very likely that Thomas was closely connected to the above family, but it appears that it is not known exactly how he was connected to the above.
