I am looking for information on an old family name, dating back to the late
1500's. The individual's lived in the central part of Cornwall, where my
late grandfather came from. Their names were: Esther Arthure (also spelled
Arter, Artur) and her father, Manuell (Emmanuel). The name Artur is
Sephardic in origin. They may have been Anusim (Conversos), or immigrant
Sephardic Jews escaping the Inquisition. Any suggestions, insight?
