Notes

  • Eliza married (1) George (Henry) Mordecai on 28th May 1862 at St Mary Newington.  He was born 1834 in Aldgate.  Both were recorded as being unmarried and of full age.  Henry was a fruiterer as was his father Isaac.  Eliza's father, Thomas, is recorded as being a Brass Founder.  Both signed their own names.  The witnesses were John Brown and Caroline Dray.  George's address is given as Brandon Row, Eliza's as Swan Street.  On their marriage certificate his name is recorded as George Mordecai, but the registers show him as being Henry.

    Both of Eliza's sons, George and Moses, were cab drivers, as was her daughter Kate?s husband Arthur Barthram.  Perhaps they worked in the family firm of their uncle George Pester.

    Henry Mordecai died 1876 in Southwark .

    After the death of her first husband Eliza, then known as Rebecca Mordecai, married (2) Samuel Lazarus on the 9th April 1878 in London City.  Eliza/Rebecca was 36 years old and a widow, living at 6 St James' Place, Aldgate.  Her father was given as Thomas Kingsman, deceased.  Samuel was a widower of 39 years, a grocer of 24, Duke Street, Aldgate whose father was Moses Lazarus, also deceased.  The marriage was conducted at Samuel Lazarus's home "according to the rites and ceremonies of the Jewish Religion", officiated by Marcus Hall and Moses Keizer.  The witnesses were Mark Davies and Isiah Benjamin.

    Sometime between 1871 and 1881, Eliza changed her name to Rebecca.  This could possibly have come about at the time of Henry's death in 1876 or of her remarriage to Samuel Lazarus in 1878, most likely with a conversion to Judaism for which it would be normal for a new name to be taken.  Certainly, in the 1881 census and after, the mother of Eliza's children is consistently given the name Rebecca (either Mordecai or Lazarus).

    Samuel Lazarus was born 1839 in London City.  He was a grocer, son of Moses Lazarus, also a grocer.  Samuel died in 1885 in Mile End Old Town.

    Eliza Matilda [Kingsman] {Mordecai} {Lazarus} was recorded as being blind on the 1891 and 1901 census, and was living with her son George (in ?91) and daughter Katie {Barthram} (in ?01).
