John Levy Spitalfields Whitechapel London UK 1840s
Posted by: Norman Collings (ID *****0969) Date: November 27, 2003 at 19:36:19

I am trying to trace my 2G Grandfather John Levy and 2G Grand Mother Hannah Crawcour. The information that I have is as follows:

ADELAIDE LEVY, one of my maternal Great Grandmothers.

Details from birth certificate:
When and where born: 13 October 1847 9 Fashion Street, Christchurch
Father: John Levy, Fruiterer
Mother: Hannah Levy, formerly Crawcour
Registration District: Whitechapel
Sub-district: Spitalfields
County of Middlesex

Details from the certificate of Adelaide Levy's marriage to Charles William Austin:
Marriage solemnised at the Parish Church, in the Parish of St. Martin in the Fields, in the County of Middlesex
When Married: 18 April 1871
Age: full age
Condition: Spinster
Rank or Profession:-
Adelaide's Residence at the time of Marriage: Panton St.
Father's Name and Surname: John Levy
Rank or Profession of Father: Fruiterer
One of the Witness was as follows: "The Mark X of J. Levy" leading me to beleive that her father was illiterate.

I found a "John Levy, Fruiterer" in the 1881 Census. If it is the same person he must have remarried as his wife is now Emma, not Hannah, and is twenty years his junior. The older of the sons, Isaac, was also born in Spitalfields, Middlesex England. Isaac is also a Fruiterer.

Any help would be wonderful, Norm
