Daniel Marot, a French Huguenot immigrant, was the protégé of and self-declared architect to William III, formerly William of Orange. Marot followed William from Holland to England when the later became King William III. His designs had great influence on English architecture and furnishings of the period, and his legacy includes the gardens at Hampton Court Palace as well as commissions for William III's courtiers. His ‘Nouveau Livre d’Ornements pour Lutillite des Sculpteurs et Orfèvres’ of about 1700 influenced immigrant French carvers such as Thomas Pelletier.
