JCR-UK SIG #UnitedKingdom Jews owning property #unitedkingdom

Some recent postings regarding Jews owning property in
England in the 19th century has raised some questions
for me.

My GGGrandfather, Hyman Aaronson, in his 1882 will,
left seven Chelsea properties to his children. I had
assumed that he has acquired them over the course many
years, some prior to 1870. I would be interested to
hear >from fellow genners about Jews owning property
prior to the 1870's. Was it done but not officially
sanctioned? Was it done by proxy? Perhaps they could
own property below a certain value or only in certain
areas? I would be interested in what others have
discovered.
