Early English Jewish Families

Early English Jewish Families

Classification: Query
Surnames: Ritterband, Jackson, Abrams
I am looking for information on Henry Morris Ritterband (born about 1797 in Poland and immigrated to England) and his wife Hannah/Anna (born about 1810 in England). They had a daughter named Rosetta (born about 1828 in England). The family immigrated to the United States sometime in the early 1830s. He had a brother named Leon Maness Ritterband.

I am also looking for information on Joseph Jackson (born about 1792 in England) and his wife Hannah (Abrams) Jackson (born about 1800 in England). They immigrated to the United States as well. I found a information in First American Jewish Families that Joseph and Hannah were married in London on 30 November 1814 but I have no other documentation to substantiate this. They probably immigrated to America in the late 1810s or early 1820s.

Both families were Jewish. I would appreciate any information that anyone may have.

Where in England did they live?

You might try the Jewish Genealogical Society of Great Britain (www.jgsgb.org.uk/) and the Moving Here site (http://www.movinghere.org.uk/galleries/roots/jewish/jewish.h...)
