I hope that you are all keeping well and that you had a nice break for the holidays.

Only a small update this time – I’m not getting much spare time at present.

Courtesy of Gerry  Newnham I’ve added the burial entry for Henry Jacobs in Lambeth cemetery:-

Henry was buried in Lambeth Cemetery, Blackshaw Road Tooting on Friday, 7th April 1911. His grave is in Section A3, Plot No 1325. This plot is a common grave and has no headstone. According to the Burial Register there are at least 4 burials in this plot. The burial service was performed by Rev J M Carrack who was presumably a C of E Minister. The undertaker was Messrs Hurry.

[Apologies for the delay in posting this update, Richard sent it a while ago.]

I was recently contacted by Richard Swaebe who is descended from Daniel Ben Moya Swaebe and Sarah Jacobs.

From Richard’s information I have added some extra information on the family and managed to clarify the Ben Moya/Swaebe connection. I hadn’t studied it enough before to work out what it was.

In a nutshell, Daniel Ben Moya Swaebe (who married Sarah Jacobs) was the son of Isaac Ben Moya and Jessy. Isaac died in 1843 and his widow, Jessy, then marries David Swaebe in 1844. Hence the double-barrelled surname. David Swaebe is also known as Daniel. In the 1851 census our Daniel is recorded as being the son of Daniel (David) and Jessy Swaebe. [Indexed as Sweeb].

I have updated the associated Swaebe/Benmoya/Landau/Jacobs accordingly – but haven’t attached the census images yet.

There will be more to come on this story once Richard has had chance to do some more research.

BigTree updated to include Richard Swaebe.

Gerry Newnham has submitted some excellent research on London Land Tax Schedules and Miscellaneous London Directories.  I hope that this will be posted in the near future.

The data on the website has been updated to reflect these changes.

Angela Shire who published her synagogue records has moved their location from British Jewry to a new website www.synagoguescribes.com which is a sister site to www.cemeteryscribes.com. Angela asked me to update our credits and links accordingly which I did immediately.

There is a short film showing Petticoat Lane in 1903 which can be found at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tTjzryR7FSg
