Barney BARNATO's original name was Barnet ISAACS. He arrived in South Africa in
1873 >from England where he joined his older brother Henry. He had a sister Kate
(Isaacs) Barnato who married Joel JOEL. They had three sons, Woolf Joel, Lt. Col.
Solomon (Solly) Barnato Joel, a financier, and Jack Barnato Joel. He met his wife
in 1874 but their 3 children were born nearly 20 years later: Leah Primrose,
Isaac Henry (Jack), Woolf. The book "Jews of Britain" by Paul Emden, does not give
any details about his wife.
His son Jack was a flyer in WWI, later killed.

3 quick questions:

1) Was Jack Barnato the son or the nephew of Barney Barnato?

2) Was his widow (Dorothy or Dorothee) of Jewish ancestry?

3) Did they have any children?
