I am looking for the families of Pinkus Presburger, born abt. 1845 – father Joseph Presburger and Emilia Neustadt, born abt. 1843 – father Solomon Neustadt.
I would appreciate any help or guidance anyone can offer, as I have not been able to take this any further.
Pincus [aka Phineas, Philip] Preschburger [aka Presburger, Presburg, Presbury] and his wife Amelia [aka Emily] Neustadt [aka Newstadt].
They were married in the Chapel of the New Synagogue for Polish and German Jews on 23 Mar 1870, in London. [see detail below]
From this we can deduct that they were definitely of the Jewish faith, and probably Polish and/or German.
His Father was listed as Joseph Preschburger and his wife’s father was listed as Solomon Neustadt.
The English death certificates for both these people give no further information as to their parentage or origins.
The UK Census forms were a little more revealing – but also relied on the enumerator’s interpretation, as Pincus could not write [English at least].
The earliest census form found is 1871 gives no birth place for Pincus, but Emilia is from Prussia. As he died on 5th Jan 1881 there are no census returns for Pincus.
The 1881 Census gives his widow, Amelia as German.
The 1891 Census gives her as East Prussian.
The 1901 census from Prussia.
The 1911 Census from Germany.
