Notes Translated from the Spanish by Benjamin Bonnet. Solomon records the name of his sister Hannah de Avila (ca 1680-1741) the wife of David b. Isaac Israel de Avila. Her will was published in an article by Miriam Rodrigues-Pereira and this together with the Bevis Marks records establishes that her father was Abraham Salom Morenu (also known as Luis de Paz who died in Bayonne in 1684) see Miriam Rodrigues-Pereira, An eighteenth-century Sephardi lady, her relations and her property, Jewish Historical Studies, volume 41, 2007
