We frequently receive inquiries from researchers looking for an ancestor’s Ketubah.
The original would have been given to the bride so it’s rare for it to be found unless it was retained by the family. But sometimes they do turn up!
A new local Judaica action house London Treasures will be auctioning the Ketubah of Baron Arthur Samuel Denis De Vahl, and his bride Henrietta Esther Salomons, her brother Major Joseph Philip Salomons signs on her behalf.
The officiating rabbi was Rev. David Woolf Marks of the West London Synagogue & the wedding took place in 1868.
