Fagin Family of England and others
Posted by: Ben Fagin Date: November 01, 1998 at 20:49:00
  of 101

The Earliest Fagin we know of was Abraham the grandfather of my Grandfather Maurice b. 10/April/1907 or 10/Nov/1907 in Swansea Wales.
He had a music recording buisness in South Africa called Troubadour, he returned to England in the 1960s.
Maurice's father was called Harris. We dont know of his birthdate, He was a travelling salesman I think.

Harris's brother Alfred emigrated to Argentina at the same time as Harris went to South Africa. Alfred who was a diamond dealer, changed his name to Alfredo Fagan and had a son called Ted who was the first English/Spnish interpreter for the United Nations.

Abraham was supposed to have come from Russia in the 1800s.

I would like to hear from anyone with more information on our line.
