He payed promesas from as early as 6 Nissan 5409 (19 march 1649) until 1 Nissan 5419 (25 March 1659). I assume that after this last payment he went to London. So he was in Amsterdam for a whole 10 years! Paving the way for the rest of them, I presume. He never pays fintas which means that he was never judged to be wealthy enough for that. The amounts he pays are relatively small, somewhere between 1 and 8 guilders. But he did pay, thereby proving that he belonged to the community. I think there are no other sources that mention him in Amsterdam, which proves the value of these taxlists'.

Dotar was one of quite a large number of charities set up by the Portuguese Jews of Amsterdam (there are dozens of them), but it was and is the most prestigious one. It was a lottery and the money was brought together by the members, invested wisely and the yearly profits were divided between two or three young ladies (donzellas) related to members of Dotar, or to poor orphan girls, to be used as a dowry. In 1714 David's place was taken by his eldest son Ishac Baruch Louzada (filho mais velho). Rebecca Montezinos of Livorno received grants in 1692 and 1700.

Edgar Samuel did however point out that her father was Jacob Levi. In consequence, Judith's common name of Judith Joseph Levi reflects her stepfather's name not her father's (see genealogy of Simon Barrow of Barbados for Judith's ancestors and descendants).

Cecil Roth 'A life of Menasseh ben Isarel' Jewish Publication Society of America Philadelphia 1934 p63 refers to the passage from Madrid to Amsterdam via Venice of Abraham Israel Pereira without citing sources. On p331 he refers to correspondence between Abraham Israel Pereira and (probable name Fernando - from ref 59) Montezinos on the subject of Menasseh's travel to Italy. Kayserling's work is listed in the bibliography without using him in relation to Abraham Israel Pereira.
141. On 22 Jul 2014 Ton Tielen provided an extract from Amsterdam records which gives a translation of the will of Jacob Pereira. This will shows multiple close links between Abraham Israel Pereira and Abraham Baruch Louzada. The Baruch Lousada link with the Henriques Faro family - which was evident from London circumcision and Amsterdam marriage records - is reinforced by the Israel Pereira link with both families as shown in this data. The data also shows a marriage link with the Den Haag Louzadas - who had Venice connections. The Den Haag Louzadas were probably close Baruch Lousada relatives who left Iberia possibly at the same time Isaac #42 left for Livorno. They may have travelled via Venice before arriving in Amsterdam before 1545. The key Den Haag Louzada was Isaac #45, a possible grand-nephew of Isaac #42 and a possible grandson of Fernando the 1st son of Amador de Lousada. The will itself shows traces of the 20 year-old dispute between Jacob Pereira and his sons by his last marriage to Sarah Louzada. This dispute was taken to the civil courts but as discussed in pages 15-7 of reference 297 below the Burgomasters of Amsterdam overturned the Court of Holland's judgement and left the fate of the missing ketubot to be resolved by the Jewish community as a matter of synagogal discipline. Other reflections of the New Christian society of Villaflor appear in the will - thus there is a bequest to a cousin Esther de Matos the surname being that of his maternal grandmother. In addition - though not appearing in the will as a dowry would presumably have been paid - there is a 1701 marriage between his daughter Leah and Samuel Montezinos whose surname is that of his father's Madrid brother-in-law Fernando Montezinos.

The possible source of the error was pointed out by Fernando Gonzalez del Campo Roman as 'Memorias de Litteratura Portugueza' v3 p258 - a list of contents of this 4 vol collection has been unloaded
145. By his email of 18 Aug 2014, Fernando Gonzalez del Campo Roman advised that Pereira was in fact born in Villaflor in 1606 and was married in Madrid in 1628 to Beatriz Gomez after moving there in 1623. His father was Antonio Pereira. It is common to find that the birthdate of Thome Rodrigues Pereira is given as ~1601 in Madrid. By his subsequent email of 28 Aug 2014 Fernando Gonzalez del Campo Roman advised that he had uncovered data that suggests that Tomas Rodrigues Pereira and Fernando Montezinos married Rodriguez Gomez sisters Rachel and Catalina and that Pereira arrived in Madrid in 1617. The data in both cases is not primary and needs evaluation. By his 12 Sep 2014 email he provided details from original records and his (subsequently updated) report has been uploaded. This hugely amplifies our original report of the origin of Abraham Israel Pereira aka Tomas Rodrigues Pereira.

149. By his email of 3 Oct 2014, Fernando Gonzalez del Campo Roman advised that he had just uncovered Livorno data - from a secondary published source - on a roll of electors for the position of treasurer of the Livorno Synagogue which indicates that Isaac Baruch Louzada #42 was a nephew of Abraham Levi Lousada and from this one can deduce that either Isaac's mother was a Levi Lousada or Abraham Levi Lousada's wife was a Baruch Lousada. An extract of this data has been uploaded.

153. By his email of 4 Dec 2014, Fernando Gonzalez del Campo Roman provided many details of the ancestors of Fernando Montezinos whose early years can be found summarised here. In his full report can be found the claim to the Cuenca Inquisition by Fernando Montezinos that his great-grandfather came from Jerez de la Frontera near Cadiz to Villaflor around 1492 with the dubious claim that he was an Old Christian nobleman. The father of Fernando Montezinos was Manuel Lopes Telles, the grandfather was Juan Lopez Tellez and the great-grandfather was Manuel Lopez Tellez. A nephew of Fernando Montezinos, Manuel Lopes Telles, married Violante Pereira of Villaflor and died in Madrid in 1644. Details are also included of some Pereira de Lousadas of Toulouse around 1660. Later, the data appeared in a conference paper that he read on 24 Mar 2015 in Israel at the Mapping the Anousim Diaspora Conference.

Taxes were to be levied on births, deaths and marriages and also on bachelors over 25 and childless widowers. Assessors were to have produced their population details by 1 May 1695.

157. Henry Roche by email 20 Jan 2015 advised that Walter Jacob Levi was not the son of Jacob Joseph Levi but the son of Jacob & Elizabeth Levi of Portsmouth whose children in order were Judith, Anna, Walter & Isaac (twins), Solomon & Sarah. Henry Roche advises that he descends from Judith. Henry Roche's listing of the Jews of Portsmouth on http://synagoguescribes.com/blog/portsmouth-records-by-henry-roche/ contains some details of the Jews of Portsmouth eg it indicates that the father of Jacob was Benjamin Levi of Wiesbaden, but it also provides some further Portsmouth links to Barbados. Subsequently, by email on 5 Apr 2015, Henry Roche suggested that a pre-1817 link was formed because two sisters-in-law of Judith Joseph Levi's sister Simha Levi ie Elisabeth and Hannah Cohen married Moses Nathan and Moses Levi of Portsmouth and London.

162. Nicholas Draper in his 21 Jul 2015 email to Tony Harding commented that after agreeing a £20m sum to be paid to the slave-owners, the British government in 1835 launched a tender, inviting financial syndicates to raise that sum in conjunction with a new debt issue. Only one bid was received - from Nathan Rothschild and Sir Moses Montefiore - and it was to underwrite only £15m of the new paper because some colonies (Mauritius, Cape of Good Hope, Barbados) were on a slower timetable and in the end their balance of £5m was paid directly in Government stock and not underwritten (which of course led to some merchants making small fortunes from under-informed planters in Mauritius). Because only one financing bid was received there were suggestions of collusion, but ref 50 p102 points out that the unfavourable terms accepted by the underwriting syndicate ultimately benefited its philanthropic reputation(s).
163. P Lynn and G Armstrong 'From Pentonville to Pentridge' State Library of Victoria 1996 provide the following description of the early evolution of Victoria's prisons - 'In December 1851 there were only 29 people in prison in Victoria. Two years later there were 955. The Victorian gold rush lured to Victoria ex-convicts and escapees - from New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land - who re-offended and were sent to prison. The prisons soon became overcrowded, so the Victorian government decided to use prison hulks. In 1852 it purchased the ship President and had it fitted out as a floating prison. But the prison population continued to rise, so the following year the government purchased the Deborah, Success and Sacramento for conversion into prison ships, followed by the Lysander in 1854. The ships had their masts removed and were anchored off Williamstown on Hobson's Bay. They held the worst offenders in the penal system.'
164. By email on 28 Jul 2015, Fernando Gonzalez del Campo Roman provided data from the Archives of the Ministry of Justice of Spain. This data has been uploaded as have 2 documents referred to in this data - document 6 of 17 Apr 1915 reporting the failure of the 1915 application, and document 3 of 20 Apr 1861 where a copy of the Italian title deed is requested from the Spanish authorities by Emanuel #93 via the Spanish herald Juan Antonio Jimenez y Alvarez and where Emanuel #135 is described as Sumiller de Corps.
165. Catherine Hall et al 'Legacies of British Slave-ownership' Cambridge UP 2014; Nicholas Draper by email has sent us some advance data from the next publication of the project. Simon Barrow and Emanuel Baruh Lousada #142 each received £2,536 18S - see https://www.ucl.ac.uk/lbs/person/view/11830 in connection with Banks, St Ann, Jamaica which lists Simon Barrow as a co-owner. Emanuel (as executor and mortgagor) was also a recipient of £4,194 18S 1D in connection with a plantation - see https://www.ucl.ac.uk/lbs/claim/view/12171. In the latter case Isaac Baruh Lousada jnr (probably Isaac #68 Emanuel's nephew or possibly Isaac #92 father-in-law of Isaac #68) was unsuccessful in obtaining compensation. It is not stated which plantation this relates to but 'Vere' points to the Parish of Vere containing the Carlisle Estate, but the £10,000 mortgage finance provided by Emanuel - an amount at great risk - makes it possible to understand why Emanuel #142, ignoring Isaac #68, left Peak House to the next son of Moses ie John Baruh Lousada and also appointed him as executor of his will!

This article discusses in some detail the hulks referred to in 163 above, and shows that the President, the Deborah and perhaps the Success were brought into service during Samuel Barrow's term and the Sacramento and the Lysander during John Price's term. Stockades were built - initially at Pentridge in Samuel Barrow's term - and also at Richmond, Williamstown and Collingwood. Samuel Barrow's title did not immediately reflect the additional facilities brought into service during 1852 - the President and the Deborah being additional to Pentridge Stockade. Perhaps some of the additional stockades were also brought into service in 1852 as well.
175. On 25 Dec 2015, Ton Tielen provided some further 'Lousada' occurrences in the notary books of the Amsterdam Municipal Archive - these occurrences have been uploaded. This set of data added to our knowledge of the Curacao and Amsterdam Baruch Lousadas, and also the Livorno Levi Lousadas. It suggested that there was another sibling Daniel in the family of Isaac Baruch Lousada #42 - who perhaps went to Nevis before 1674. It also suggested that the Den Haag Louzadas - whom we knew had links with the Israel Pereira and Mercado families in parallel with the Baruch Lousadas - may also be Baruch Lousadas but perhaps like Abraham Israel Pereira they came to Amsterdam/Den Haag via Venice rather than Livorno.

180. A set of 214 images of the trial of Amador de Lousada was obtained from Torre de Tomba and though they difficult to read, transcription by Fernando Gonzalez del Campo Roman has yielded an astonishing amount of information. His transcript has been uploaded and in this transcript can be seen Villaflor, Amador's unmarried daughter Brites/Briatis/Beatriz Alvares, a paternal grandmother with the same name, and the names Jeronimo and Rodriguez - all of which encourage us to further contemplate that Amador de Lousada was the maternal grandfather of Tomas Rodrigues Pereira aka Abraham Israel Pereira whose mother had the name Beatriz Geronima. While Edgar Samuel as of 2 Mar 2016 strongly suspects that Amador de Lousada and his father Pedro are direct ancestors of the Livorno Baruch Lousadas, he commented that further evidence is needed to confirm that Amador's daughter was in fact Beatriz Geronima. Currently, such further evidence is circumstantial and derives from ref 141 which shows a very close relationship between the Baruch Lousadas and the Israel Pereiras. Summarizing this relationship - Abraham Israel Pereira d1674 was a much older cousin of Abraham Baruch Lousada d1714 (brother of Moses Baruch Lousada of London), shows either that Abraham Israel Pereira had a Baruch Lousada mother or that Abraham Baruch Lousada had an Israel Pereira father, Jacob the son of Abraham Israel Pereira took Sarah Louzada as his second wife and she as a Den Haag Louzada appears to be closely related to the Baruch Lousadas, Jacob gives bequests to the daughters of Moses Baruch Lousada and (revoking this for reasons unknown) then to the daughters of Moses's brother Jacob, and finally Jacob Israel Pereira was a cousin of Abraham Henriques Faro who has the same name as a witness to the marriage of Sarah daughter of Moses Baruch Lousada.
181. On 21 Mar 2016, Laura Arnold Leibman provided the following information: John Castello Montefiore was baptized on 20 April 1810 at St. Michael's Cathedral as an adult. He is listed as a free mulatto (Barbados Church Records 1637-1887 film no 001157925). He married Mary Elizabeth Law on 15 April 1818, also at St. Michael's Cathedral (Barbados Church Records 1637-1887 film no 001157926). Mary Elizabeth was born in 1799 and died in 1877. In the records of their marriage, they both have the acronym FM after their names, again meaning free mulatto. While this may seem appalling, records such as these were actually the official way that people were recognized as having the higher status of being partially white. Indeed, John Castello Montefiore and his son John Montefiore were two of the wealthiest men of African descent in Bridgetown. Their names often appear in histories of the emancipation era (1800-1833/34). They signed numerous petitions for civil rights for people of African descent, and were important merchants. A great resource on this era is Melanie Newton's 'The Children of Africa in the Colonies: Free People of Color in the Age of Emancipation' of 2012. John had a store on Swan Street, near most of his Jewish kin (Barbados Newspapers 1854 gives the address, but it is also in the Vestry books for St. Michael's parish).

187. We have uploaded from the internet some arrival data for Victoria in which 2 Lousadas appear. The birthdates suggested that J(ohn) b~1839 and Charles b~1841 may have fallen into the family of the Yorkshire Lousadas as brothers of Arthur b1837 but Alan Pereira advised that he could not find them in English birth records. Accordingly it now seems likely that these 2 records refer, notwithstanding the inaccurate birthdate estimation and transciption errors, to sons of John Baruh Lousada of Peak House namely John Mortimer Lousada b1841 or perhaps Harry Burningham Lousada b1844 and Edward Charles Lousada b1854.

He was the son of Robert Barrow, a civil servant living in St Vincent, probably born on 23 July 1836 in St Philip, Barbados'. She added that Robert Barrow lived in St Philip and was born to a single parent who was probably born into slavery, and that the Reverend’s mother was a Vincentian, Frances Adams, but who may have been of Barbadian descent and that unless Errol’s descent was via Frances Adams, she doubted the connection.

219. Readily available data found on ancestry.com on 24 Sep 2017 shows that Florence May Prince was the widowed sister-in-law of Charles Lloyd Bemrose, a son of Margaret Romana Simpson, who was a great-granddaughter of Joseph Wright of Derby. She married Herbert Cheney Bemrose on 30 Mar 1904 but he died on 30 Jun 1930. The only surviving sibling was Romana Gertrude Bemrose who died in 1969. There is no record of a marriage between Florence May b1874 and William Poulett Lousada b1881, but they lived together for almost a decade in Surrey, mostly at Withy Spring House on Petworth Road, until her death in 1953.
220. The last (title) page of the document found at https://archief.amsterdam/inventarissen/inventaris/334.nl.html#A232400002 in Sep 2017 contains the names of the 1670 Mahamad members. It also contains a list of most if not all of the Sephardic community members in 1670 in the lead up to the construction of their Synagogue consecrated in 1675. This list has been uploaded and can be found here, and contains the signatures of Jacob Baruch Lousada d1681 #1388, and Isaac Louzada 1645-1714 #50 one of the Den Haag Louzadas.
221. The confession and genealogy of Maria de Lousada was obtained by Florbela Veiga Frade in Sep 2017.
222. At the head of Claire Myers' genealogy of the Barbados Lindos is Abraham 'de Haydo' Lindo. His marriage to Esther Nunes Castello is shown here - http://www.dutchjewry.org/phpr/amsterdam/tim_sephard_marriages/amsterdam_tim_sephard_marriages_view.php?editid1=3488. On 9 Oct 2017 Ton Tielen suggested that Abraham was the son of David de Haedo, via the following marriage which came to light thanks to Michael Waas. A prenuptial agreement of David de Haedo and Ester Lindo is at https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10212776633764783&set=p.10212776633764783&type=3&theater&ifg=1 and for the marriage record see http://www.dutchjewry.org/phpr/amsterdam/tim_sephard_marriages/amsterdam_tim_sephard_marriages_view.php?editid1=2452. Ton Tielen gave a brief summary of the prenup: David de Haedo (assisted by his mother Catharina Angela le Maire, widow of Julius de Haedo) and Esther Lindo (daughter of Judike Lindo, widow of Davidt Palatio - see http://www.dutchjewry.org/phpr/amsterdam/tim_sephard_marriages/amsterdam_tim_sephard_marriages_view.php?editid1=4109 for this marriage) express their wish to marry. The date of the prenup was 20 March 1662 with nice signatures - David signs as Davidt Dehaedo aka Juan Pedro Dehaedo. Ester Lindo's will is at https://archief.amsterdam/inventarissen/inventaris/5075.nl.html#NOTD00171000011. Michael Waas commented that the mother of David ie Catharina Angela le Maire had an Antwerp connection shown in http://search.arch.be/eadsearch/inventaris/index/taal/dut/archiefbewaarplaats/BE-A0541/eadid/BE-A0541_005619_006781_DUT/inventarisnr/I561967811264/level/file#c:0.c:0.c:949 and that she was the daughter of Peter le Maire; possibly Peter le Maire came from the family of Isaac le Maire, probable New Christian, and the largest initial shareholder in VOC who later came into conflict with it. Ton Tielen noted that David de Haedo was a 'Portuguese merchant' from Gulik a small town in Germany; that Judith Cohen Henriques the mother of Esther Nunes Castello was a daughter of Jacob Cohen Henriques and Judith Arary from Antequerra in Spain; and in the 1651 marriage bann of Judith Cohen Henriques and Jacob Nunes Castello (at https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10212777211819234&set=p.10212777211819234&type=3&theater) it is stated that the bride had a father in Brazil and that her godmother/witness was Rachel Capadoce; and that Esther Lindo came from an earlier (Lindo) marriage of Judith Cohen Henriques (not the Pallache/Palatio marriage referred to above).

236. Ton Tielen on 21 Nov 2017 produced a list of Portuguese Jews sent to North Africa and Gibraltar with financial assistance from Amsterdam in the 1685-1728 period. This list is uploaded here. Recorded for 1707, Abraham Messiah (son of Isaac) was paid 11 guilders to go to Tetuan in Morocco. Perhaps he is related to Jacob (see ref 211 above) also from Tetuan. This adds a further clue to the origins of the Massiahs of Barbados.

282. Angus Trumble 'The Rothschilds, the Montefiores, and the Victorian Gold Rush' 30 Oct 2017. This contains an account of the Rothschild and Montefiore correspondence commencing in late 1851 on the subject of Victorian gold. It may be found here - https://www.portrait.gov.au/postcards/2017/10/rothschilds-montefiores-gold-rush and has been uploaded. It has its origin in ref 285 below. Note that Joseph Barrow Montefiore is therein incorrectly referred to as a brother of his nephews Jacob and Eliezer Levi Montefiore; and Leslie who is given the lifespan 1830-1909 and who is thus the oldest son of Jacob Barrow Montefiore is given as the son of Joseph Barrow Montefiore.

284. Text provided by the South Australian Gallery to us on 28 Jan 13 had been reproduced from notes originally prepared at a time when brother Joseph was dead ie after 4 Sep 1893, and stated that the painting was presented 18 months before the notes were written. As the notes were originally written when Jacob was alive (and with 2 sons and 2 daughters alive) ie before 3 Nov 1895 the painting was presented in the Mar 1892 - May 1894 period. The notes further stated 'The picture is a handsome one, and depicts Mr Montefiore in the most lifelike and characteristic manner. He is sitting in his favourite old armchair, with one hand resting on a copy of The South Australian Register, which is on a writing table, and with the other hand on his knee. The picture is an admirable work of art, and an ornament to the Gallery'. We judge that the painting was done when the subject was around 70 ie around 1870. The notes also inform us that the subject was appointed as honorary Commissioner on behalf of South Australia at the Colonial and Indian Exhibition. The sons alive at the time were Leslie Jacob (d1909) and Joseph Gompertz (d1915), while the daughters were Ada Rachel (d1927) and Victoria Violet (d1933).
285. Rothschild Annual Review 2011-2 (uploaded) - see pp24-31 for the earlier version of ref 282. Note that the 18th August 1852 shipping order shown on p31 was clearly by Jacob not Joseph Barrow Montefiore.
286. On 6 Feb 2018 Matteo Giunti sent images of 4 ketubots from the first ('A') register of ketubots from the Livorno Jewish Archive and these fall within the 1626-49 period. He provided a summary (by Michael Waas) here, and also the 4 images themselves.
287. The genealogy of the Surinam Baruch Lousadas provided by Fenneke Lousada-Scheltens is uploaded here. This data derives from Iwan de Vries whose compilation may be found online eg on Geanet. However, he does not give references which makes it difficult to check the sources. As a consequence, we doubt the paternal links in several key cases and until these can be checked against synagogue names we will proceed with 2 amendments we consider should be made to the early Baruch Lousada data contained therein. First, it is uncommon for a father to have a son with the same name, and thus we are not accepting without proof that David #1528 was the son of David #1586; a much better candidate to be father of David #1528 is Isaac #1297 whose father was David #44. In addition, the first son of Isaac #1568, who married Rosa Hannah Robles de Medina in Surinam in 1746, was Abraham born 21 Aug 1747 in Jodensavanne, and the second son was David born 31 Dec 1749 also in Jodensavanne - and since the maternal grandfather was David Haim Robles de Medina it would seem that the father of Isaac #1568 was Abraham #1587 not David #1528. These 2 amendments thus appear in our chart of the early Baruch Lousadas of Surinam and Curacao. The Surinam genealogy was however reviewed against the gravestone records revealed in ref 125, with all minor discrepancies noted, before inclusion into our main genealogy. It is of course beyond doubt that Abraham #1587 had a son Isaac, for his marriage to 'Esther de David' is recorded in ref 40 vol2 pp931-2. Esther #1282 died in 1741 and could have been the first wife of Isaac #1568 but almost certainly not a wife of Isaac #1528 who was not born until 1727. In addition, Isaac son of Abraham appears in Paramaribo on or around 11 Sep 1749 as a 'taker' of a commercial bill (ref 175 #7). We should add that as a consequence of the de Vries genealogy showing Abraham with the wrong son Isaac, the son Isaac given to Abraham we assign to David #1528, whilst the son Jacob of David #1528 we assign to Moses #658 - noting that the Surinam son of Jacob was Moses.

On page 282 in footnote 20 may be found the observation that Abigail Dias da Fonseca alias Beatris de Caceres had a host of descendants named 'Keizer' and that Esther Dias married David Keizer on 13 May 1672. However the matter does not appear to be settled - an online discussion in Aug 2018 covered the admission of David Keiser of Hamburg which was approved by the entire Mahamad (https://archief.amsterdam/inventarissen/inventaris/334.nl.html?fbclid=IwAR0NBWCG9n811WhkF-rvWTfqdb7dz0PVtgA3glLdp4E9qbGU_ayw39gQzYw#A01510000074) and Ton Tielen noted 'that it looks like David Keyser is Ashkenasi, and asked for membership of the Amsterdam community on the basis of his ketubah with a daughter of Aaron Dias da Fonseca, which was signed by Haham Isaac Aboab. Here's the contradiction I read in the decision of the Mahamad:- in general, they do not grant membership to Ashkenasim, yet in individual cases they take the liberty to ignore their own rules'. We have to ask though - is it certain that being from Hamburg he was definitely not Sephardic?
