Notes Portuguese Synagogue. Ketubah of Benjamin and Sarah was 24 May 1765. “D’Israeli was born in Cento, near Ferrara, in Italy on 22 September 1730; and died at Stoke Newington, London, on 28 November 1816. He came to England in 1748, and settled there as a merchant, though he did not take out papers of denization till 1801.
Though a conforming Jew, and though contributing liberally toward the support of the synagogue, D’Israeli appears never to have cordially or intimately mixed with the community; only on one occasion did he serve in a minor office—that of inspector of charity schools in the year 1782.
D’Israeli married twice. His first wife Rebecca Mendez Furtado (married 2 April 1756), by whom he had a daughter Rachel, died on 1 February 1765. Later that year he married Sarah Siprut de Gabay Villareal, on 28 May 1765. Their only child Isaac D’Israeli was born the next year, on 11 May 1766. Wikipedia. Acording to the Dictionary of National Biography Benjamin’s daughter Rachel married Mordecai (Angelo) Tedesco of Leghorn. Nathan Basevi and Angelo Tedesco the husband of Isaac D’Israeli’s daughter Rachel are mentioned in the will of Modecai Cohen NA669.
