Levy family

gr manchester
Hi i am researching Simon and Fanny Levy both from Poland. Simon was born app 1795 and Fanny his wife was brn app 1812.i think they may have lived in London in1851 and then in Manchester in 1861 they had a daughter called Rebecca. Please can you help find this family or anything about them.
Thank you

LEVY, Sunon Head Married M 58 1793 Glazier Germany

LEVY, Fanny Wife Married F 40 1811 Germany

LEVY, Matilda Daughter Unmarried F 18 1833 At Home Germany

LEVY, Rebecca Daughter Unmarried F15 1836 Germany

Levy, Jacob Son M 13 1838 Germany

Levy, Abraham Son M 11 1840 Germany

Levy, Hannah Daughter F 9 1842 German

Levy Dorothea Daughter F 7 1844 Germany

Levy Lowis Son M 6 1845 Germany

MOHLE, Leopold Lodger Unmarried M 29 1822 Farrier Germany

P1524 F225 P14 St Boltoph Aldgate in the East London

address 5 Amelia Place St Boltoph Aldgate

This was very close to the German Church in London around which was a strong German community. Remember the German Polish border and Prussia was a bit confused at this time!

More will follow

Hope this gives you a good start

You are right in 1861 the family had moved to Manchester, living at 29 Verdon St Manchester

Simon Levy M head aged 66 born 1795 dealer in marine stores born prussia/poland

Fanny F Wife aged 49 born Prussia/poland

Deborah 17 dau 1844 born Prussia

Louis 15 son hawker of elastic bands born Prussia

there were also 3 lodgers.

reference GG9 P2949 F60 P12

I also found Fanny Levy aged 30 in the 1841 census. she was without Simon and with a family called Jacobs living at Ellison St. St Boltoph without Aldgate

As you are probably aware the 1841 census did not record relationships or place of birth

I could not find Simon in the census at all but could have a spelling variant so will keep trying

Do you have any of the family in the 1871,81 or 91 censuses?

kind regards

Hi again

Rebecca Levy was with her parents in 1851 but not in 1861. The liklihood is she married and changed her name

There is one Rebecca Levy marriage in Manchester and 4-5 in East London Aldgate are in that decade.

I suspect, and hope you have information to confirm, she married in Manchester to a Jacob Rosenburg. The BMD reference is 1Q 1859 Manchester 8D 522.

Hi i have posted you a big thankyou but i dont think i did it correct so just incase,here it is again thankyou very much for your input regarding the Levy`s
I have nothing on the 1871 1881 or 1891 cencus.
I do know that Rachel married Jacob Rosenberg, she later went on to live with Joseph J Davis from poland i say live with because as hard as i try i cannot find a marriage for them.
Anything you find i will appreciate very much.:)
Best wishes
