    Default HENRY ISAACS-ALICE CASHMORE

    This new thread forms part of my ongoing research into the Isaacs, Crawcour, Cashmore, Simmonds, Solomon, Jacobs, Hart, Goldsmid and others relationships through marriages. Having spent the past 17 years researching these lines world wide I am already aware of many of the relationships. However, Michael Jolles in his 1998 publication Samuel Isaac, Saul Isaac and Nathaniel Isaacs included a family tree which provided data on the Isaacs/Crawcour/Solomon lines in particular which I was unaware of.
    The focus of the thread on Henry Isaacs and his marriage to Alice Cashmore is to to unravel the relationships to my Crawcour line in particular.
    Jolles included important data on the father of 3 brothers John, Lewis, Isaac Isaacs who was identified as Reb Samuel Isaacs of Poole- see #4 of the thread Lewis Isaacs-Catherine Solomon first started 18.12.2014 which I subsequently very recently added to.
    John Isaacs -Jacob Aron b Samuel children connect to my Crawcour line through marriage- Rosa Isaacs m Henry Crawcour son of David Crawcour who died St Helier Jersey in 1882 my 4x great grandfather.
    In addition, David's son Isaac Crawcour married Esther Cashmore and settled in Melbourne Australia. Esther was the sister of Michael Cashmore prominent in the Melbourne Jewish community.Michael Cashmore had married Elizabeth Solomon Sydney NSW 1840.
    Samuel Crawcour 1816-1858 son of David Crawcour and brother of Isaac had married Leah Cashmore 1818-1874 sister of Michael and Esther.

    As the data will show, the Isaacs/Cashmore relationship was further extended through the marriage of Henry Isaacs to Alice Cashmore.
    Henry was the son of Isaac Isaacs ( I will post a separate thread on Isaac and his wife Catherine LYONS aka Katherine).
    Isaac Isaacs is one of the 3 sons of Reb Samuel Isaacs of Poole and he settled in Chatham Kent.

    The Argus (Melbourne) Wed 30 March 1859 recorded the marriage of Henry Isaacs to Alice Cashmore:
    "On the 23inst by the Rev R M Myers, at the residence of the bride's father, 3 Victoria Parade, Henry Isaacs Esq Merchant, Castlemaine to Alice eldest daughter of Michael Cashmore Esq J P Melbourne

    Victoria Marriage Certificate
    Wed 23 March 1859 at the residence of M Cashmore Victoria Parade Collingwood
    Henry ISAACS bachelor 24 Merchant b Chatham- residence Melbourne Castlemaine -father Isaac ISAACS contractor; mother Catherine Isaacs formerly LYONS
    Alice CASHMORE spinster 17 Melbourne Victoria -father Michael Cashmore merchant;mother Isabel Cashmore formerly SOLOMONS

    Married according to the Hebrew Faith.

    More to follow.

    Henry is not listed in the 1841 Census with his father Isaac or his siblings ( I will post the census as part of a separate thread on Isaac Isaacs). However, he appears in the 1851 Census by which time both his parents were dead- his mother died 1839 and his father in 1850.

    There was a brother Louis who died in 1844 from drowning- 19 March 1844 Kentish Gazette
    .." manifested during the past week in the neighbourhood of Chatham, for the fate of a young man Louis ISAACS, son of Mr Isaac ISAACS, army and navy outfitter. It is feared he is drowned but so much mystery hangs over his disappearance, now ten days since..."

    Cecil Roth -The Susser Archive. The Rise of Provincial Jewry.1950 Chatham Section referred to the Chatham Jewish Cemetery and the burial of Lewis Isaacs recorded as drowned in the Medway.

    The Australia Electoral Rolls Castlemaine Victoria 1856 show a George and Henry Isaacs freeholders-land and tenement. They are likely to be the sons of Isaac. Sometime prior to 1881 Henry Isaacs had returned to the UK with Alice and 9 children:

    I will post further data to show that Alice and at least 2 of her daughters changed their surname of Isaac to HILL.

    Default CATHERINE ISAACS nee LYONS

    In the previous post I recorded the death of Henry's mother Catherine Isaacs nee Lyons as 1839 -it should read 1776-1849- see Cemetery Scribes ID 10076.
    I will post full data on a separate thread - Isaac ISAACS-Catherine LYONS.

    109 Greencroft Gardens Hampstead is an important address for Alice and at least 2 of her daughters because they appear to have lived at the same address until Alice died. Importantly, the address is also that of Saul ISAAC one of the sons of Lewis Isaac who was the brother of John and Isaac. There is significant data on Saul particularly in the Michael Jolles 1998 book.
