Few people know that's the reason the character play by Di Caprio in "Gangs of New York" is called Amsterdam Vallon.
    In my tree, I have Walloons (incl. Picardy) mostly entering the Northern Netherlands in the late 16th century (often with Antwerp as intermediary stop) and the early 17th century, while the Huguenots coming in during the late 17th century were often Southern French.
