Re: Great Synagogue London marriage record Solomon Levy to Anne Levy 1860 #unitedkingdom #records


Many thanks for this.

It's definitely them. The date of 27th June is what is on their children's birth records - well those who were born in Scotland.
Maybe that was the date of the civil marriage, I don't know.
The groom was called Solomon but I know that his Hebrew name was Avrohom Shlomo ben Yehudah.
His surname was originally Zajac - pronounced Zion - so Ziens makes sense. Levy was the surname the groom took at some point.
Probably when he came to the UK. Maybe that's where it came from.
The bride's Hebrew name is a bonus! I've been trying to find that for years without any success.
Her headstone has the top part missing and I couldn't find it anywhere else.
Shame that the names of the mothers are not given.

Many thanks again.
