Dear Group, Can anyone in UK or Australia help me with
information about the following family please?
Rachel Ottolangui was born about 1834 in London,
(possibley Spitalfields).Her parents were Aaron
Ottolangui and Rayna Ottolangui (nee Bensabat). Rachel
married Henry Simmon(d)s in 1852 in London. Henry was
born about 1833 in London. At some point Henry and
Rachel Simmon(d)s arrived in Melbourne, Australia.
They had 5 children all who were born in Melbourne:
Aaron Simmon(d)s born 1857
Joshua Simmon(d)s born abt 1859 died 1860
Isaac Simmon(d)s born 1859
Rainer(Rayna) Simmon(d)s born 25-6-1861
In 1861 Henry and Rachel Simmon(d)s and family were
living at Little Lonsdale Street, Melbourne, next door
to the Hebrew Congregational School. Henry Simmon(d)s
was a Grocer and Wine and Spirit Merchant.
I haven't been able to find any record of this family
I'm also interested in hearing >from anyone with a
connection to the BENSABAT family >from London.
