<< Esther DAVIES, daughter of Gryffith (labourer), birthplace Wales.
=="Gryffith . . . labourer . . . Wales"-- While Davies is a fairly common
name among British Jews, the details you give about Esther suggest that her
father was not Jewish. If her mother was Jewish, she would be considered
Jewish under Jewish religious law and so would her daughters and their
daughters . . . . .

<< Is there a central repository of records in London within the Jewish
community that would allow me to find marriage details between Rose ADCOCK
and Percy BANNISTER, where the lineage would be detailed?
==If Rose wasn't Jewish, she could not have married within the Jewish
community and it is very unlikely that there will be any record in Jewish
registers. Percy Bannister does not suggest Jewish ancestry, but then,
British Jews have assumed many "British" name to "fit in better."--and it is
certainly possible that he was Jewish.
