Greetings to those on this list - I am new, >from Sydney in Australia,
temporarily in Townsville, far north Queensland.I would like some advice
from the list.
I am descended >from the Solomon family, who arrived in Australia >from London
in 1817.
I have traced this branch of the Solomons to Samuel Solomon (Moss Shemayah)
who lived at 30 Wentworth St Spitalfields, London
He married Betsy Beyla Moses, daughter of Shalom Milik Mal, officiant Moses
Myers, Rabbi at the New Synagogue, October 1793
He is described as a pencil maker, of Spitalfields, London.
I would like to go back further. I know this will be difficult, so would
like to find general information. I understand they must have arrived in
London relatively recently then, as the Jewish community was limited by law
prior to that time? Can anybody explain the situation, or direct me to some
information. Thank you in advance,
Regards
