Re: Looking for pre-1700 records DE LA PARRA - family #sephardic

David Mendoza

I can see that some members of a PARRA family were arrested by the Portuguese Inquisition in the early 18th Century. They had come from Murcia in Spain. Don't know if they relate to yours. A bit later someone of that surname from “Martjena” (Sint Maarten near Curacao? Martinique? Somewhere else) was married in Amsterdam. There was also a PARRA family in Jamaica.

Watch Aviva Ben-Ur’s talk on Suriname to the Sephardic Genealogical Society.

The Society's site links to the key Sephardic genealogy groups.

Best wishes,
