THE ASSENHEIMS

 

This photo was taken in Petticoat Lane in Edwardian time I think.

Where are all the women?

 

Judah Assenheim is the earliest member of this family that we know about but, unfortunately, we have no information about him expect that his wife was called Sarah.

 

Levij Judah Assenheim (the earliest Assenheim for which we have information) was born in Assenheim, Germany, in about 1760, but lived for much of his life in Amsterdam. At least two of his children (Solomon and Isadore) went to England but it is not known whether Levij went too, or any other members of the family.

 

In September 1809, Levij was being supported by the Jewish authorities when he, his wife and 6 of his 7 surviving children were living in Amsterdam. His trade at the time was old cloth (oude kled) but he did have a previous occupation of Hotel Keeper (possibly this was back in Germany). Levij's eldest surviving son, Solomon, probably already lived abroad at that time (more than likely he was in England). It seems that Levij and his family were relative newcomers to Amsterdam; around 1780-1790 and that they had strong links abroad - most likely in England and probably still in Assenheim itself.

 

Ashkanzi Jews in Amsterdam

 

It is likely that Levij and his family were Ashkenazi Jews. The Ashkenazi Jews arrived from North Western Europe and were far poorer than their wealthy Sephardi counterparts, who came mainly from Spain and Portugal. Indeed, The Sephardi Jews passed regulations restricting marriage and other involvements with the, perceived, socially inferior Ashkenazim. These poor Jews lived on the margins of the Sephardic community, relying on their charity, Synagogues etc and also for work. By the 18th century although the Ashkenazi Jews were far more established, they were still separate from the Sephardi Jews.

 

Levij and his wife Judic (nee Akkerman) had seven children, all born in Amsterdam, and they were living at Marken 137 (an island incorporated in the city of Amsterdam) when, on January 13, 1812, Levij Juda took the civil name of Assenheimer, pursuant to the Napoleonic decree that everybody had to have a surname. Lots of people used the name of the place they came from for their surnames. To begin with they would probably have been known as Levij of Assenheim. Eventually the ‘of’ would have been dropped.

 

Sadly, it seems that 4 of their children died very young, 3 of these were boys, but we don’t have names for these, and the 1 girl who was called Schoontje. The children were all buried in the Zeeburg cemetery: a son on June 2, 1791, a son on March 16, 1795, a stillborn baby boy on January 16, 1799, and a daughter on December 24, 1807 called Schoontje (Dutch for Sheina).

 

The Assenheims obviously suffered from ‘itchy’ feet as some of the descendents carried on travelling and finished in Scotland; others went even further and ended in Australia.
