In #4 of this thread I posted census records on Woolf Davis and his wife Mina and suggested they maybe the parents of Leah Davis who was the mother of Matthew Friedman aka Freeman. I have yet to order the GRO Marriage Record for his parents but have noted on Cemetery Scribes records Wolf Davis (Davies) 1828-1920 ID 15558 his marriages to Mina 1825-1870 buried Deane Road Jewish Cemetery Liverpool. The children from this marriage were noted as Isaac b Poland 1851;Ann b Poland 1854; David b Leeds 1857; Leah b 1859 Liverpool.
The 2nd marriage of Woolf Davis was to Rachel Meyer 27 March 1870 Seel Street Synagogue Liverpool. Their children Abraham 1873 Liverpool;Esther 1874 Whitechapel; Nancy 1880 b Whitechapel; Lazarus 1883 b Whitechapel- Rachel Meyer is buried Plashet Cemetery 1852-1904. There is a Family Chart for the 2nd family.
Cemetery Scribes have added the Naturalisation Certificate for a Woolf DAVIES from Poland 21 May 1862 H01/105/3816 National Archives UK. However, there is Woolf DAVIS from Poland 11 Jan 1859 H01/88/2831.
Currently, there is no proof that the records relate to the right person.
In addition,the 1881 Census records a Wolf Davis 46 stationers assistant with wife Rachel 42 and children Jacob,Joseph,Elias,Abraham, Esther, Fanny and in 1891 a Woolf Davis age 60 stationery traveller coster b Germany with wife Rachel 40 and several childen and in 1901 he is 61 with wife Rachel 49 and in 1911 he is 74 widower. Further research is needed to confirm that these are all the same family because there are other Woolf Davis in London and his trade differs from earlier census records including age differences.
