PREFACE

This monograph, based on my Presidential Addresses delivered before the Jewish Historical Society of England in 1941 and 1942, originally appeared in serial form in The Jewish Monthly, volumes ii and iii. It is reprinted now in response to a widespread request to present it in more permanent form. I have to thank many correspondents - in particular Drs. Redcliffe N. Salaman and Vivian D. Lipman, and Messrs. Albert M. Hyamson, O.B.E., N. L. Hyman, A. M. Jacobs, Harold Rubinstein, Wilfred Samuel, Harold Soref, Rev. L. Susman and The City Librarian, Plymouth - for supplementary information generously sent to me, which gives this reprint considerably more value than the original publication. For technical reasons, these supplementary data have sometimes been appended to rather than embodied in the original account. My thanks are also due to Mr. Evan Senior for compiling the comprehensive Index to this volume. The reader must be warned that he is not to expect here a consistent account of the history of the communities dealt with. In certain cases, I have attempted to provide only some materials upon which that story can be based, and I have not scrupled to accumulate details which in other circumstances might be considered petty. But the material used is almost all entirely new; and I feel that I have succeeded in providing in these pages, for the first time, a basis for writing the history of the settlement of the Jews in England as a whole.
