Notes Synagogue Duke’s Place and Synagogue in Amsterdam. Old Bailey, t17480420-35) Mentioned Hermanus Wagg “I am a jeweller in Prescot-street. I have known Myers eight years; he lived with me two years as an errand-boy…” Possibly Manus Wagg, G.S. member 1762-3, no. 114. Simon and Minky were also brother and sister of Hermanus (see Akevoth) but he does not specify this in his will. Abraham Samson was the husband of Minky. Their daughter Rachel Rechla Abraham Witmond, (1729 – 1765), married Mozes Hartog Zwi-Hirsch Prins Lanstadt, (Moses Prince in the will, b. 1719 in Langenstadt). Consequently the Prince and Samson children are all “other relatives” of Hermanus.
The Minky Waag who married Salomon Meyer is probably a daughter of Simon Waag and Salomon Myer is therefore Soesman (Kalman) Jacob Gans,
