Re: Yiddish Name "Chalia" #names

I have a "Chala" in:

Married 22 Mar 1807 London, England, Great Synagogue, Isaac Schalraig, fathers name Hirsh SGL, married 22 Mar 1807 to Catherine Solomon, Hebrew name Chalah, fathers name Shlomeh (synagoguescribes website). In Lewin's "Great Synagogue Marriage Registers" Isaacs name is correctly transcribed as Schabracq, and Catherine Solomons' Hebrew name as Hilla b Shlomo.

Unproven, but possible, that the bride was a Dutch/German Saartje Salomons, Saartje a diminutive of Sara.
