I have Disraelis grandfather, Benjamin D'Israeli (1730, Cento Ferrara -
1818, England}, first marrying Rebecca Mendez Furtado (? - 1795) having
a daughter Rachel (1757, London - 1807).
Benjamin then married Sarah Siprut (Seyproot) De Gabay. Their grandchild
Benjamin Disraeli (1804 - 1881) became the Earl of Beaconsfield and the
Prime Minister of Britain.
I have additional descendants of Furtado and De Gabay but not any
I may be related to the last Benjamin through his mother Maria (Miriam)
Basevi (1775 - 1871) because she shares the same last name as my 4gmother
Anna Basevi (1757, Verona - 1841)
