I have a Richard Samuel marrying a Mary Joseph in Flintshire in 1782 & was wondering where these Samuels & Josephs originated? They sound to me as if they should be Jewish but were marrying in Christian churches in the Halkyn area. Does anyone know anything about these families please & when they settled in the area? Had there been a community of Jews nearby somewhere at sometime earlier? It just seems to me to be unusual that they both had Jewish surnames. Anyone with any ideas or knowledge of this?? Thanks, Roz.
