The Will of Diego Rodrigues Marques dated 1675 — 9 Comments

  1. Hello – I have a question with regards my gggrandparents ketubot. My gggrandfather Isaac Mordecai Rodrigues married Phoebe [nee. Belasco] on 5th May 1874 in Bevis Marks, they were both 30 years old. Phoebe had been orphaned along with her twin sister and siblings in 1853 when tragically both parents died with a few days of each other. On the Ketubot it shows that Isaac’s contribution was £100 and Phoebe’s share was £50 from the ‘Mahil Sedaca’ for orphaned girls and also £80 from the ‘Marques Dower’. I am looking for more information about the’ Marques Dower ‘ and whether this may have been connected in some way the ‘Rodrigues Marques’ family ancestors within the Bevis Marks community ? Hoping someone maybe able to advise me further on this ?
