The Great Synagogue (London) marriages transcription includes a
marriage for PHILLIPS Lazarus with Hebrew name Eliezer Lezer (GSM
274/33 1831 [26 May] ). The bride was Leah Rogers.

Assuming that Leah changed her name-of-use to Louisa (which seems
reasonable enough to me), I have traced Lazarus though the 1851, 1871,
1881, 1891 censuses. He died in 1892, and the death was reported in
the Jewish Chronicle, referring to him as Lazarus Phillips (Froom
Leizer).

Is it likely that the name transcribed as Eliezer Lezer >from the 1831
marriage entry would have become (Froom) Leizer in 1892? I.e. have I
been tracing the man who married in 1831?
