In Reply to: The Ayala -Jewish Connection by patricia Ayala kolbjornsen of 522

Patricia,

I tie to Sancha De Ayala and her husband Walter Blount of England.
Their daugher Constance Blount was one of my many Great-Grandmothers.

Sancha De Ayala born c1360 Toledo, New Castle, Spain died c1418 England.

Was she Jewish ? I am new in my research of this Ayala family and any Spanish research or Jewish research. It was not untill yesterday that I started to check out Walter Blount, I had on the Sutton family that Constance married into....so thought I would check out the Ayala name and found alot.. but . still very green and they are so far just names.. hope one day to learn about the people.

Her parents Diego Gomez De Toledo and Inez Alfonsa De Ayala

The Ayala family
Inez's family Ferman Perez de Ayala and Elvira Alvarez de Zavallos.

Elvira's parents Pero [Pedro] Lopez de Ayala and Sancha Fernandez de Barroso

I had thought they were all Spanish and then found a few to say Sancha Ayala was Jewish.

welcome any help or corrections.

Thankyou,
Patty
