Julie Staker wrote that she has traced her STAKER ancestry back to
1563 in England.As the Jews were expelled >from England in 1290 and
not readmitted until 1654, it seems unlikely that Julie's STAKERs
were Jewish.

Julie also mentions finding STAKER records on JRI Poland. I suspect
that these Eastern European Jews adopted a surname many centuries
later than her British STAKERs, and were probably unrelated to them.
