Morris and Hester Walter
« on: Thursday 05 March 15 13:24 GMT (UK) »
Can anyone help me disentangle this family? I have more than a suspicion that they are Jewish. All I can find on them is:
1) Their daughter Elizabeth Daisy was born in Paddington 1882. Birth registered by her mother, Hester Hannah Walter, formerly Moses. They were living in Portsdown Road. At this time Morris was a wholesale clothier.
2) When Elizabeth got married in 1929 (aged 41), Morris was dead, but was described as a cloth merchant. Dorothy Walter was a witness.
I can't find them on the censuses (am I just being thick?) I tried the JewishGen website without success. Any thoughts anyone??
