    Small note regarding Noah- see Synagogue Scribes Blog -Borough Synagogue and the online link to the History of the Borough Synagogue M Rosenbaum 1917......." Tradition has it that at one time the local Jewish residents repaired to the King's Bench Prison,in the Borough,for divine service, the unfortunate debtors incarcerated there helping to form the quorum necessary for public worship(Minyan), which the Jews of the Borough could not themselves muster.
    On these occasions a Mr Lewis (popularly known as "Captain" Lewis, grandfather of the late Sir George Lewis, the celebrated solicitor) used to preside at the Reading of the Law".

    Default Hesther Levi

    In trying to map out the family of Moses Levi, I note that in the will of Benjamin Levi, (possibly) son of Moses Levi of Canterbury he lists as his brother in law Hyman Hurwitz. England & Wales, Prerogative Court of Canterbury Wills, 1384-1858. Probate 22 Oct 1818. Benjamin did move from Canterbury to Dover and then in 1804 left Dover, assuming that he went to London. He also refers to a Nephew Emanuel Levi who will continue on the business in Dover. Kentish Gazette 20 Jan 1804. Hyman married Hesther Levy in 1802 synagogue scribes GSM 072/01a. In Moses Levi's will he lists Hesther Levi as his daughter.

    I will look at these names.

    As a reminder the JGSGB Library has 18 family trees and documents on the Lewis surname and 10 on the Levi surname. You can see the surname list on the JGSGB Library data base.

    I have never been to the JGSGB but there may well be relevant documents researched by family members that can shed a light on Noah et al.
    My own research at the Society of Genealogists in London never included Lewis or Levi so I have no idea if there are relevant sources in the Anglo Jewish lines on your searches.

    #502 Levi/Hurwitz
    Apologies if we have looked at the 2 records but if not see Synagogue Scribes Will Extracts NA 148 Solomon GOMPERTZ 20 May 1791- his spouse is Elizabeth and he has niece Golda LEVY wife of Benjamin Levy of Canterbury; nephew Solomon Levy watchmaker of London.

    See also NA 143 Elizabeth Gompertz 1839 sister is Golda Levy brother of Solomon Levy see the Notes on the relationships

    Would be worth looking more closely at the Gompertz/Levy and the full wills on Ancestry.Com
