One thing that is important that I forgot to mention to add to my previous posting, it is not a coincidence that the Spanish king that expelled the Jews from Spain among whom were some Jews from Loya, Ferdinand the Catholic, husband of Isabella the Catholic, was the same king who invaded France and split French Navarre in two in the year 1512, or 1515. In the middle ages nations in Europe were not yet established as they are today, Navarre, though semi-independent, had been fully under the French crown for the previous 300 years, and there are old maps of France which include all of Navarre. Ferdinand the Catholic expelled the Jews and conquered Navarre taking half of it away from the French. That is the link between the Jews who bear the name of the French Baie de Loya which is adjacent to Navarre, French Navarre and the Baie de Loya, which is, like I said, in Labourd in France two miles from Spain.
