In 1692 the Huguenot Henri de Ruvigny was appointed Commander in Chief in Ireland, and Lord Galway the following year. From then until the Treaty of Ryswick in 1697 he served William III in his Continental wars against Louis XIV. Between 1697 and 1701 he was in virtual sole charge of the government of Ireland. It was he who, in 1697, sent Louis Crommelin, a 'Frenchman very skilled in linen manufacture' on a tour of the country to report on proposals to promote the development of the industry.
