I am researching my g. grandfather John HOWARD born about 1830 in Warrington,
Lancashire, UK. He lived in Devon, London and Brighton. He died in 1917 and is
buried at Florence place Cemetery, Brighton. He was a Member of the West
London Synagogue >from 1895 to 1917.
I know >from John HOWARD's will that he is related to the BARNETT and BLITZ
families but I can't find the link.
John HOWARD's cousin was Abraham BLITZ born in Bedminster, Somerset in 1849
and died in Birmingham in1923. Abraham BLITZ's father was John BLITZ born
about 1820 in Deal Kent. His mother was Ann Hall born 1825 in Crewkerne,
Somerset. His grandfather was probably Antonio/Anthony BLITZ born about
1770. John BLITZ's brother Antonio/Anthony a.k.a Signor BLITZ was a
conjuror/magician who emigrated to USA in 1834. He died in 1877.
John HOWARD's "half brother" Percy Arthur BARNETT was born in Devon in 1858
and died in London in 1941. Percy Arthur BARNETT's father was John Beryl
Barnett born in Aldgate, London about 1807. His mother was Sarah Charlotte
BARNETT (nee LAZARUS) born in Aldgate, London about 1821.
Anyone who has any information about John HOWARD's family (father, mother,
siblings) and/or how he is related to the BLITZ and BARNETT families please
