The Bellems #unitedkingdom
We hope you are all keeping well.
We were wondering if anyone might know of anything in relation to the Bellem family, who originally resided in Plymouth and Dartmouth in England. Their name is also sometimes spelt "Bellam".
There is a certain Bellam that is a mystery to us, at the moment. His name is Isaac Bellam, and he appears as a subscriber to the Seder Ha-Tefillah Translated by A. Alexander and B. Meyers, published in London in 1770, by W. Tooke. We do not know where he fits into our tree at the moment, but are fairly confident he is related to us because of his surname.
If anyone has any Bellem ancestors, or thinks they might be able to help, we would be very grateful if you could let us know.
Wishing you all the best,
Yoav Aran and Andrew Kopkin
