THE MUSAPHIAS

 

Sandy’s Row Synagogue

 

My Musaphias came from Amsterdam in Holland, although thanks to one of my contacts, I have discovered that they came, originally, from Portugal. After they left Portugal they spent some years in France and I presume when they had been expelled from there as well they moved on to Holland. Also, thanks to my contact I have got the Musaphia tree back to the 16th century (see the tree).

 

I haven’t found out when they arrived in this country yet. I haven’t been able to find them in the censuses or BMD registration records until Joseph Musaphia married Miriam Jane Willing in 1859, therefore, I must assume that they arrived between 1851 and 1859.

 

Two Musaphias arrived here in 1856 they were both recorded as T. Musaphia but on looking at the actual entries they were both J. Musaphias. Unfortunately, I don’t know which men these 2 were, however, it is possible that one of them was the Joseph Musaphia who got married in 1859.

 

The Musaphias may have worshipped in Sandy’s Row Synagogue. The building was acquired in 1867 by a Jewish society. The society had been founded by immigrants in 1853 as a mutual aid and burial insurance society, but evolved into a synagogue. The members were workingmen of Dutch Ashkenazi background, employed as cigar makers, diamond cutters and fruit traders.

 

The Musaphias’ occupations were mostly either cap makers or cigar makers. I don’t know who they worked for but the cigar makers only needed a few seconds to complete a cigar. On average they worked 8am – 7pm with half an hour for lunch plus a half day on Saturday. Overtime meant working up to 10 or 11pm or even all night. Many were immigrants from the Netherlands and would earn anything from 4 shillings – 14 shillings a week.
