Portsmouth records by Henry Roche


(PSEM)       Henry Roche Oct.2012


This list (PSEM) is taken from the Purchases of Membership recorded in the Portsmouth Synagogue First Minute Book (MB1), which covers the period 1765 to 1843.

MB1 opens with the events leading to the great Split of February 1766, which lasted until two congregations were reunified in February 1789.  Near the start of MB1 is inscribed a list of names of those on both sides of the dispute, the Old Congregation (OC) and the New Congregation (NC), and I have numbered these names in the order they are given (OC 1?14 and 15?25, and NC 1?17).

MB1 being the minute book of the Old Congregation, it naturally records its own membership only, and not that of NC (apart from the above list).   No minute books survive for the NC, but I have compensated for this, and broadened the scope of this list, by including all known NC “members” or affiliates (many of these are also shown as finally taking OC membership during the 1780’s, or even as late as 1791).

Also included are the names of Ministers or other officials of both Congregations, for whom it is clear that no membership purchase was required.

In many cases the Purchase entry records the new member as being a son or a son-in-law of an existing (or deceased) member, as this qualified him for a special preferential rate of payment.   Such “son-in-law” memberships were in fact often made near the time of the marriage itself.   I have incorporated this information by showing in the first case the father’s name, and for the second case by listing the wife’s name wherever known.

MB1 gives all members’ names in Hebrew.  Their English names (shown in the first column) are known from my Portsmouth Jewish Index of pre-1852 Hampshire Jews (PJI, still in card-index form in 2012), which incorporates data from all sources, Synagogal, local and national.   English names are shown with the surnames in capitals, and

Hebrew names are given in italics.


PSEM Columns:

1.  English Name (where known) ? in full, with surname in capitals.

2.  Hebrew name (in full).

3.  Birthplace or origin (shown in Hebrew toponym);  if son of member, the father’s name is given (see above).

4.  OC of NC (Old or New Congregation, with numbers for “original” members – see above).

5.  Date of OC membership purchase.

6.  First known date in Portsmouth (earliest known appearance in Synagogue or local records).

7.  Birth and death dates.

8.  Wife’s name, with father-in-law’s name (see above).

9.  Notes (place of residence if not Portsmouth;  also residence after leaving Portsmouth).


Abbreviations:  NC = New Congregation (1766?1789)

OC = Old Congregation

IOW = Isle of Wight

b = born;  b = ben (son of);   c = circa (about);  d = died, or daughter of;    nr = near;   wid = widow of

Sources:  As explained above, the principal source is MB1, but its incorporation into PJI has enabled much additional information to be added, not least of course the English names given in Column 1, and the dates in Columns 6 and 7.   Column 3, the place of origin, derives mostly from toponyms appended to the Hebrew name: these may of course indicate the previous place of residence, the place of birth or upbringing, or even (if following the patronymic) the father’s place of origin.  For these Hebrew names and toponyms (Columns 2 and 3), Levy Isaac’s Portsmouth Circumcision Register (PCR) has been a principal and invaluable source of extra information.

The wives’ names in Column 8 again come from a variety of sources, including marriage notices in early Hampshire newspapers, but two lists in MB1, recording gifts to the synagogue by ladies of the congregation in September 1769 and April 1813, have been specially informative for the earlier years.
