This is a database of Jewish Traders/Businesses in London during the period 1769-1839. The data, comprising over 5,000 records, was extracted by Dr. David Barnett, from the following sources:
The data has been edited, consolidated and reformatted for the JCR-UK database by Laurence Harris.
Each record comprises the following fields:
All of the directories are available at the Guildhall Library London.
The original insurance policies (Sun and others) are also held at the Guildhall Library. The policy numbers/volumes were not computerised, so tracking down the specific policy will prove an almost impossible task (until a name index of the policies of this period is published). Dr. Barnett’s has retained manuscript notes of most of the relevant policy numbers, and has indicated that if anyone requires a single individual reference then he would be prepared to search his records. He may be contacted by e-mail at D.Barnett@tesco.net.
