35 1. 1n 1844 Henry Solomon the son of Barnett Solomon died "of the prevailing fever" at Falmouth,Jamaica while staying with his cousin Abraham Hammond Solomon, the other son of Solomon Solomon. In the same year George Solomon came to Falmouth and was employed by his elder brother Abraham Hammond Solomon for a time.
 
SOLOMON, Henry (I980)
 
36 1. Abraham was working in Falmouth, Jamaica in 1844, when his cousin Henry Solomon the son of Barnett Solomon died there,and in New York in 1851 and 1861.
2. When his brother George Solomon came to Falmouth Jamaica in 1844 at the age of 19, he was initially employed by Abraham.
3. He renounced his share of his fathers estate.
4. Charles Franklin Solomon, his son, married his cousin Alice Solomon on 29 April 1890 in Melbourne, ref Solomon/Bedwell family. Alice was the daughter of Abraham's brother Henry Solomon.
5. 1881 London census gives:-
- 58 Beresford Rd. London, Islington
- Philip Solomon, head, M, 42, W. Indian merchant,b. Jam.
- Lottie, wife, 38, b. Sydney, Australia
- Kate, daugh. 9, b. Mid. London.
- Margaret, daugh. 8, b. Mid. London.
- Emily, daugh. 5, b. Mid. London. I wonder if there is a connection.
 
SOLOMON, Abraham Hammond (I972)
 
37 1. Alice acted as informant in 1891 at the death of her father (her age 39).
2. Charles Franklin Solomon born 1851 died 1919 at Fitzroy (6805) was the son of Abraham Hammond Solomon and Elizabeth Abrahams of NY. This sounds like Alice's uncle who went
to America. Ref Section 19, also the use of the name Franklin is like that of Lazarus Franklin who married Miriam the daughter of Israel Abrahams. Henry Roche referred to a book on the Franklin Family, it needs checking out.
It seems that we may have first cousins marrying and possibly a link back to the Abrahams family here.
3. Alice Solomon Probate, Series 299/No.760, Widow, granted 19/11/1938.
4. Was this the Charles Solomon who taught Clara Mendoza the piano & who was a Professor at the Melbourne University? 
SOLOMON, Alice (I1048)
 
38 1. As Solomon Solomon, Barnett's brother, gave London as his place of birth in the 1851161 Census' it is probable that Barnett was a/so born there and that they came to Portsmouth (Portsea ) from London at some time before 1808 when Barnett's name first appears when he marries Betsey the daughter of a member of the local community (Synagogue) and automatically becomes a member himself.
2. Barnett's Hebrew name was, "Issachar (Ber) b.Zvi Samuel"
3. Barnett probably died at Ordnance Row which is given as one of addresses and is referred to in his son Henry's obituary in 1844 in the Hampshire Telegraph.
4. Various addresses at Portsea and Portsmouth are given in the Rate Books and Navy Lists in Henry's first letter.
5. The Navy Lists give the Trading Addresses of Navy Agents.
6. A Navy Agent dealt with sailors pay arrangements as they were often at sea and wanted to have a good time when on land.
7. After the death of Barnett in 1828, Betsey continued to appear in the Navy Usts as his "widow and administration" at 38 College St. Portsea from 1828-Dec 1829 and then from March 1830-June 1835 at various addresses in LONDON.
8. Ref. letter dated 2. 1. 1996 from Henry Roche for London addresses if required.
9. Betsey was listed in the 1830 Portsea directory as "Clothes Saleswoman and Navy Agent'
10. To flesh out the family of Elizabeth Isaacs - The 1841 Portsea, Portsmouth Census gives "Henry Solomon aged 15 (which fits perfectly with the age of Barnett's son, Henry) at the home of Samuel & Lewis Isaacs at Hawk St.Portsea". Samuel, Lewis, Abraham & Henry Isaacs were sons of Israel Isaacs (Hebrew name of Asher b. Isaac lbshits i.e. from Ipswich), this family arrived in Portsmouth around 1805. Henry Roche thinks that when the death of Elizabeth (Betsey) Solomon is found she will be a Peski/Peska or maybe Beila bat. Asher (bat.= daughter of) and the sister of the four brothers above.
Also in 1828-1829 (after the death of Barnett in 1828) she is living at 38 College St.which was next door to L.(ewis) Isaacs, so she is probably living next door to her brother. The above is hypothetical but the evidence is compelling that it is a valid family connection.
11.Elizabeth married Aaron Joseph at Great Synagogue London on 9 March 1845, Aaron was a witness at the marriage of Lewis Phillipos & Sarah Solomon in 1846. 
SOLOMON, Barnett (I977)
 
39 1. At Eton, Junius showed a remarkable aptitude for learning anything to which he put his mind. He was an accomplished linguist speaking fluent French, Spanish, Italian, German & Flemish, he also wrote poetry, painted in oils and was something of a sculptor.
2. He also exhibited a talent for female seduction and was in trouble re an illegitimate child to an Elizabeth Walters about 1813.
3. He joined the navy but was induced by his father, who strongly favored the Americans, to give up his plan of a navy career as he was about to be ordered to fight against the Americans in the 1812 War of Independence.
4. In 1813 at the age of 17 he made his London Theatre debut.
5. In 1814 on a tour of Holland & Belgium, he met Agatha De/annoy in Brussels, she was the daughter of one of his landladies, they married in 1815 and Agatha bore him two children, a son Richard and a daughter who died in infancy.
6. After a successful stage career in England he deserted her and migrated to Norfolk, Virginia on the ship "Two Brothers" with pregnant Mary Anne Holmes, arriving on 30 June 1821.
7. He was the most well known actor in early 19th century America. He and Mary Anne had ten children, six of whom survived. From 1822 they lived in a comfortable log cabin on a large farm he purchased near Belair, Harford County, Maryland (23 miles from Baltimore). The farm was in a beautifully secluded tract of woodland.
8. Agatha divorced him in 1851 after she found out about Mary Anne and their children. He married Mary Anne Holmes a few weeks later.
9. He toured America widely and returned to England for short periods in 1825126 and 1836137.
10. He attempted suicide at one stage.
11. In 1852 he died from fever after suffering from a bad cold whilst on a trip on a riverboat up the Mississippi.
 
BOOTH, Junius Brutus Snr. (I986)
 
40 1. Both the death of Solomon and Rachael were reported in the Jewish Chronicle.
2. Solomon Solomon's Hebrew name was - "Solomon b. Zvi Samuel" (ref Patronymic below).
3. A patronymic shows descent from the father by the addition of e.g. b (ben) after the son's given name, followed by the fathers given name. e.g. Solomon b. Zvi (Henry) Samuel.
4. Solomon's gravestone at Southampton gives "Solomon ben (son of) Abraham Zvi Samuel", which seems to give the father three given names.
5. Solomon Solomon married Rachael Abraham the daughter of a member of the Portsmouth Community (Synagogue?) and becomes a member himself.
6. Various addresses at Portsea and Portsmouth are given from the Rate Books and Navy Lists in Henry's first fetter.
The two brothers appeared in the Navy Lists from 1814 onwards and the rate Books from about 1808.
7. Solomon continues to appear in the Navy Lists in Portsmouth until 1834 and in the Synagogue Minute Book until 1811111832 and and it was probably shortly after this that the family moved to Southampton where he was probably one of the few founder members of the new congregation there which was previously part of the Portsmouth community. Refer to Henry's letter for Southampton addresses.
8. In the 1861 census Solomon was described as «retired from business as a hotel keeper", but he must still have retained the business as he died at the hotel 5 years later.
9. His will and probate state formerly of 13 Portland St. All Saint's Parish, this is his address in the 1861 census and is a/so the address at which Rachael died.
10. His Will signed 2519118611eft part shares to his two sons Abraham Hammond merchant now (in 1861) residing in NY. USA and the Honorable George Solomon now (in 1861) residing in Kingstown, Jamaica. On 271711866 when the will was probated Abraham Hammond renounced his share and it all went to the Honorable George (probate of £7000 pounds which is equivalent to at least A.$42,000 in current value). When the will was probated in 1866 the address of the Honorable George, merchant, was Mincing Lane, London. Notice that his other 4 sons and 2 daughters were not included in the will.
11. Solomon Solomon was a member of the Southampton Town Council, Jews only began to be elected to civic duties around 1841 in Hampshire.
12. The 1861 census a/so includes a cousin of Solomon Solomon, George Moss. He was a Spirit Merchant, aged 29 (b. 1832 at Portsmouth) he would have to have been a son of one of Solomon or Rachael's siblings, he seems to be a bit young!

Family F338
 
42 1. From Jonathan Myers, New York. Late 1999/Early 2000

Hi Terry, tbruce@ozemail.com.au
Thanks for your inquiry. I'm afraid I have no further info on Sarah PRINCE, whose husband was Isaac SOLOMON. Therefore, I cannot be sure we are writing about the same person. My info on the Solomon SOLOMONS branch of the family came from a researcher in the U.K. who tied my ancestor Barnett SOLOMONS to Solomon SOLOMONS of Southampton. The person to contact is a descendant of Solomon who is therefore a cousin of mine and who lives in Melbourne. His address is maurie@netspace.net.au. Please let me know if you are able to confirm the connection. I'd be very interested in learning about it.
NO CONTACT AS YET
 
PRINCE, Sarah (I1044)
 
43 1. Had illegitimate daughter in Dec 1810. She was going to marry Aaron Levi the son of Abraham Levi of Canterbury but Henry does not know if the marriage occurred. ABRAHAM, Leah (I962)

He was a failed actor and physician who murdered his wife and then committed suicide in a hotel room by the English seaside in 1912.
2. At an early age he deserted the classroom for the stage dressing room. After minor experiences playing juvenile roles he appeared with several well-known stars. In 1882 he followed the course taken by him in his youth and left the stage to study medicine. He was not successful as a physician, however, after 10 years he resumed his musical career in stock companies of the US and England.
Later he toured the manufacturing centres of great Britain with his own company, but the venture was not profitable and he purchased a motion-picture theatre at Brightlingsea, there he and his wife occupied rooms in a cheap lodging house. On December 6th July 1912 they were found dead from the
wound's of a revolver in Junius' hand. Reports stated that his last failures and involvement's in a lawsuit may have been responsible for his actions.
3. Newspaper extracts in family file include:
-Inquest verdict was "willful murder and suicide, while insane".
-"thought to be taking drugs".
-"very excitable"
-"much worried because his show had failed to pay ".
-A note found said "f have given my wife a sleeping draught to ease her pain. AsI cannot live without her, f will give myself another" (was his wife suffering some illness and so he put an end to her pain and then committed suicide??)
-Her cause of death was a gunshot wound to the brain and then he shot himself.
3. His address at their marriage was 2 Beaumont St. West Kensington. Her address at marriage was 2 Park St. Richmond indicating that they married in her Parish Church.
4. His will gives "of Manchester in the State of Massachusetts" but Manchester is not in Boston but lies on the Atlantic coast northeast of Boston between Salem and Gloucester. Jonathan Myers's cousin in Boston sent him the birth details of Junius which gives 7 Florence St. Boston as his birthplace. LDS has his brother Sidney as born in Manchester, Massachusetts.
5. He left his effects of £150 to his brother Sidney Barton Booth who renounced it and it went to his brother in law Richard Bond Turner, glassware merchant who was a creditor. She left her effects of £650 to his wife, Minnie Turner. Minnie Turner was the sister of Florence. Administration dated London 2814 and 2614 respectively.
Her DOD given as 6/12/1912 and his as 7/12/1912.
7. Witnesses to his will written 26/11/1894 were Ralph St. Menard, John H. Langdon & Charles H. Pattee. 
BOOTH, Junius Brutus (I949)
 
45 1. Henry Roche said that henry Snr. was dead at the latest by 1814 as the sons added "zl" (of blessed memory) after the patronymic in their signature from 1814.
2. The patronymic also show descent from the father by the addition of (eg. b. = "ben" son of) after the son's given name followed by the fathers given name.
3. Solomon Solomon's gravestone at Southampton is engraved:- "Solomon ben Abraham Zvi Samuel", which seemd to give the father three given Jewish names but Henry Roche said he would probably have only one or two English names.
4. Jonathon Myers quotes "There are Jewish gen references (by Jeff maynard, citing Machzor) to a samuel Barnett & Solomon Solomon at Still Alley, London, in 1807". this would fit in with the first Portsmouth reference to Barnett being in 1808 when he married Betsey. 
SOLOMON, Henry Samuel (I968)
 
46 1. Henry Roche said that Henry Snr. was dead at the latest by 1814 as the sons added "zl" (of blessed memory) after the patronymic in their signature from 1814.
2. The patronymic also shows descent from the father by the addition of (eg. b. = "ben" son of ) after the son's given name followed by the fathers given name.
3. Another name such as Ber (bear), Zvi (stag) or Leib (lion), may be placed after a given name based on the Hebrew name being associated with a scriptural writing somewhere eg,Issachar "Ber: Hirsch "Zvi" or Judah "Leib': anyway the upshot is that when an English version of a Jewish name such as Issachar is used the "ber-Bear" becomes Bernard/Barnett, hence Issachar (ber) ben Zvi Samuel Solomon may appear as Barnett Solomons the son of Henry Samuel Solomon.
4. Solomon Solomon's gravestone at Southampton is engraved :- "Solomon ben Abraham Zvi Samuel", which seems to give the father three given Jewish names but Henry Roche said he would probably have only one or two English names.
5. Jonathan Myers quotes "There are Jewish Gen references (by Jeff Maynard, citing Machzor) to a Samuel, Barnett & Solomon Solomon at Still Alley, London, in 1807". This would fit in with the first Portsmouth reference to Barnett being in 1808 when he married Betsey.
 
SOLOMON, Henry Samuel (I968)
 
47 1. Isabella Blair is the sister of John Blair who married Abraham's sister Annie Solomon.
2. An Isabella Blair had a Violet Rose in 1885 and an Alfred in 1889, father unnamed. 
BLAIR, Isabella (I943)
 
48 1. Israel is mentioned (incorrectly under the name of Mordecai Abrahams) in a fairly well known book ob the Franklin family.
2. Israel was a member of the Portsmouth Community but for most of the 1780s and 1790s he lived and traded as a Silversmith in Arundel in Sussex, he retired to live in Portsmouyh around 1800.
3. Israel's name in Hebrew is "Menahem Ezreil ben Abraham", this implies that his father's name was Abraham.
A patronymic shows descent from the father by the addition of (eg. b. = "ben" son of) fter the son's given name followed by the father's given name.
4. Another name such as Ber (bear), Zvi (stag) oe Leib (Lion) is often placed after a given name and is based on the Hebrew name being associated with a scriptural writing somewhere eg. Issachar Ber, Hirsch Zvi or Judah Lehib, anyway the upshot is that when an English version of a Jewish name such as Issachar is used the name "ber-Bear" or Bernard/Barnett is used, hence Issachar (ber) ben Zvi Samuel may appear as Barnett Solomons the son of Henry Samuel Solomon. 
ABRAHAM, Israel (I955)
 
49 1. Israel is mentioned in a book on the Franklin family, is this the same family as the husband of Miriam? Family F330
