THE BENJAMINS

 

‘Rothchilds Buildings’, Thrawl Street, Christchurch

 

Baron Nathan Meyer de Rothschild, the unofficial leader of Anglo-Jewry, formed a company to build cheap tenement dwellings for Jewish tenants while at the same time providing a reasonable return to its shareholders.

 

The Four Per Cent Industrial Dwellings Company was formed in 1885 and opened the Rothschild Dwellings to tenants in April 1887. Most families lived in 2 room flats with a scullery and toilet and a balcony. Each block of flats was 6 storeys high.

 

In the 1891 census 2 Benjamin families were living in the ‘Rothchilds Building’. The Benjamin families living in these buildings were Solomon Benjamin (born about 1856) and his family and the family of Isaac Benjamin (born about 1864) even though he was not with them at the time as he seems to have been in prison in Leicester. I wonder what he did!

 

On the 1841 census I have included a Solomon Benjamin, born about 1771, as I think he maybe Henry and Samuel’s father. The census says that he was born in ‘Foreign Parts’? Solomon Benjamin was actually born in Amsterdam, Holland.

 

Thanks to some of my new cousins I now know he was born in 1864 in Amsterdam although his brothers were born in London which means the family must have moved here soon after Solomon was born. Also, my new contacts have told me that Solomon’s father was Mordechai, born about 1744 in Amsterdam and his father was Benjamin (not very imaginative), born about 1724.

 

Also, from the 1841 census I have included a Jonas Benjamin, born about 1801, as I think he is another son of Solomon as he is living in the same road and he has the same occupation. Also, although Jonas seems to have died in 1842 in the 1851 census his widow and 2 sons are living in 22 Hutchison Avenue. At number 21 of the same road is the Assenheim family which contains Sarah who married Nathan Benjamin. Therefore, I assume Nathan was visiting his cousins one day when he met and fell in love with ‘the girl next door’. How romantic!
