I've been avoiding joining this conversation with this point
for fear of being laughed off the list, but ...... I
happened to switch on the UK TV channel ITV2 last weekend
and caught a repeat of the 80's show Robin Of Sherwood. This
particular episode which I don't recall seeing before was
about a pogrom in the Jewish population of nottingham
(presumably as this is where robin hood is set) according to
the internet movie database it is: "The Children of Israel"
Episode: #2.2 - 16 March 1985.
The main Jewish family it centers around were called De
Talmont, and when threatened by the Sherrif of Nottingham
(although Sherwood forest does extend to south yorkshire)
the father of the family Joshua de Talmont says that they
are protected as they are poperty of the king.
See these background notes for the show giving a timeline.

I am not clear how historical this is.
