Jewish Families in Alexandria in 1840

By; Andrew Strum (Australia)

 

In 1840, at the height of the "Damascus Affair", the blood libel against the Jews of Damascus, Moses Montefiore traveled to the Middle East. Whilst in Alexandria, he convened a meeting of the Jews of that city with a view to the drafting of written statutes for that community. He also commissioned a census of Alexandrian Jewry. I am currently working on a translation of that document from the Hebrew original. The census lists the names of the heads of each household or of widows and orphans; their place of birth; their age; the period of their residence in Alexandria; their financial status; their occupation; their marital status; their dependent children below and above the age of thirteen years; and any relevant observations. There are 169 surnames that appear in the census, as follws.The following names appeares in a manuscript in hebrew in London.
