DESCHERE or TEIXEIRA from Hamburg #general
I recently found out that I am a DESCHERE descendant >from Hamburg.
My 4x great grandmother Kele DESCHERE died there in 1847. She was the
daughter of Yehuda Loeb DESCHERE, and married to my 4x great grandfather,
Levin Heymann (Yehuda Loeb bar Hayyim) WAGENER.
DESCHERE is a very unusual name and there is speculation that the family is
really TEIXEIRA >from Hamburg. The TEIXEIRA family was Sephardic originally
from Lisbon. The documented TEIXEIRA family came to Hamburg in 1648 and leftHamburg for Amsterdam in 1698. I believe my TEIXEIRA line continued on as
DESCHERE in Hamburg.
If anyone knows more about DESCHERE or TEIXEIRA >from Altona/Hamburg, please
