Looking for info on the MYERS family in West London #unitedkingdom


Claire Mitchell
 

Hello!  I am trying to find out any information on the MYERS family who lived at 128 Brompton Road, London which was also where their family business was - a Clothiers/Tailors shop called Myers & Sons opposite Harrods.  I believe they also spent time living in St James and Soho.  The parents were George b. 1838 and Mary b. 1841 and there were 3 sons Godfrey b. 1879, Morris b. 1868 & Samuel b. 1859 who as far as I can tell never married and all stayed living as bachelors with their parents.  I think there were some more siblings but these are the ones I know about. If anyone has any information I would be very appreciative!

Hello Claire,

Access the JCR-UK database on Jewishgen and do a search for your MYERS Family, pay particular attention to looking for then in the Anglo Jewish Database 1851 and then look for them in the other datasets. 

Best regards,

This must be more of a coincidence. I think my friend Claire Klein from England to Toronto Canada had the maiden name Meyers..
Her Father may have been( Isaac), a widower, who also emigrated to Toronto Ontario Canada.
If you are interested I might be able to contact her daughter.

Hi Group,

I am responding to Claire Mitchell, who wrote: “

With the astonishing flurry of messages on the SIG coming through every day now, I missed & deleted the post so I am extremely grateful to Eleanor Richmond’s reply, without which this would have passed me by.  I bring this to the group’s attention because with the increasing number of messages appearing under a single all-encompassing group, I am concerned that we may see similar problems in the future.  I don’t have a solution to offer but am flagging this for skilled facilitators’ attentions.

Claire – I am very excited to report that Godfrey, Morris and Samuel were my 2x great uncles.  There were 16 siblings in the family, many of whom died young.  Their brother, Dick (aka Lazarus) was my great grandfather.  Please write to me privately.
Eleanor – Myers is a very common name.  I am not aware of this Canadian connection … but who knows?  

Best regards to all,
