I am trying to trace my great great grandfather, known in England as Francis
Louis BAMBERGER. He was a German Jew who converted upon arrival in England .
from various census in England I have calculated his birth as 1825, probablybefore April 7th of that year.
from his marriage certificate in England in 1855 his father's name is givenas Henerish (Heinrich) a merchant.
The other information that we have is that he was of a prominent banking family
The UK census of 1871 says he was born Silesia. This is the only census that
has a place. The others all say Germany. It may be the truth or not?
We do not believe he naturalized in England
I have found the family of Jakob BAMBERGER and August BAMBERGER of Mainz.
Did Jakob have a brother Henerish (Heinrich)?
I have also found the following information on Lemle Lob BAMBERGER and this
may be encouraging.
Does anyone have more information on these 2 families that may be of help to
me please? Thanks for the help!
