City of Durham - Some Historical Notes
In the 1881 UK Census, a possible Jew, a man from Russia named Joseph Shule, was a lodger in a pub in Durham. He was a glazier, a well-known immigrant Jewish trade. He doesn't seem to have lasted in the city very long.
In the 1891 UK Census, there were at least two families in the city.
The first known Jewish child to be born in the city of Durham was Helena Herman in the September quarter of 1898.
