The Isaacs Branch of the
Pelser/Pelzer & Werkendam Family

from Werkendam, North Brabant, The Netherlands
c.1733



  • Pelser is the Dutch word for sardine or pilchard.
  • Pels means fur, so it could be that the family were furriers.
  • Werkendam is a municipality in the province of North Brabant in The Netherlands.
  • Reusel de Mierden is a municipality in the province of North Brabant in The Netherlands,
           the birthplace of Solomon 'Isaac' ISAACS/PELSER.
  • The surname Isaacs is taken from the patronymic 'Isaac'.
  • The family crest above, which looks more like a unicorn than a sardine, is of Dutch origin.

    • Marriage Notice:

  • NOTES:
    1. Of their nine children, Moses, the oldest, was born in and used the surname WERKENDAM. The remaining children appear to have been born in Amsterdam so we can gather that Moses and Duife moved there between 1796 and 1799. With the exception of Solomon, the youngest, the remaining children used the surname PELSER. In the Netherlands Solomon also used the surname PELSER but in the England he used the surname ISAACS although some of his English born children reverted to PELSER.

  • Notes:
    1. For several years, Sandra SCARLETT nee EVANS (granddaughter of my great uncle Sollie ISAACS) and I searched in vain for a marriage record for Solomon and Deborah ISAACS. It wasn't until a PELSER cousin from the U.S. contacted me and told me that ISAACS was not the original surname that we were able to proceed further.

    2. The 1851 U.K. census showed Solomon ISAACS b.1813, his wife Deborah born 1825 and four daughters, three born in Amsterdam and one in Spitalfields, London. The Register of Jewish Residents of Amsterdam 1851/53 showed Solomon 'Isaac' PELSER b.1813, his wife Rebecca 'Samuel' SLOMPER b.1824 and five daughters, three born in Amsterdam and two in London. The dates of birth for the daughters corresponded so we had a match except for Deborah or Rebecca's given name.
    3. Rebecca/Deborah's mother, Rebecca 'Menke' OLDENBURG, had apparently died in childbirth and she may have been named for her mother and not cared for it. For whatever reason, she chose to be called Deborah in the U.K. - the same name is used in the 1851, 1871 and 1881 censuses. Rebecca/Deborah's surname has been variously recorded as STUMPER, SLOMPER and HOMPER.
      Their oldest daughter, Abby or Duifje, also elected to be called Deborah.
    4. The family had moved to London between 1847 and 1849 residing at 5 Cox's Square, Aldgate, gone back to Amsterdam between 1851 and 1853, living at Batavierstraat 377 and then returned to London prior to the 1861 census when they were living at 12, Fashion Street. In 1871 they had moved to 1, Rosetta Place, The Artillery, Christchurch, Spitalfields, and in 1881 to 24, White's Row.


    Solomon Pelser/Isaacs
    (Click on picture to enlarge)
    After the death of his wife, Deborah, in the first quarter of 1890, Solomon was living with his oldest daughter, Deborah and her second husband, Abraham de Wilde at 21, Queen Street.
    He then left England and went to live with his son, Samuel, in Boston, Massachussetts where he died and was buried.

    His gravestone inscription reads:

    SOLOMON I. PELSER
    BORN
    OCT. 13 1812
    DIED
    JAN. 3 1902
    May his soul rest
    in peace

    CENSUSES:


  • U.K. Census 1851
      5, Cox's Square, Aldgate, Middlesex, England (see map)

  • Notes:
      It is probable that Abby*, Duifje* and Deborah* are the same person.
      Aunt Julie mentioned a Deborah de Wilde (Devilder/Devilda) who was married 3 times. From the census returns she is shown to be married to Judah JACOBS in 1871 and to Abraham de WILDE in 1882. The widowed Solomon was living with the latter in 1891. I've not been able to find details of the third marriage nor a census record for Deborah for the year 1881.

    • Most of the parishes in the "East End" of London, in which many of the events in the lives of our forebears were registered, were, from about 1889, designated as being in the County of Middlesex, the Cities of London and Westminster being separate entities. From 1914 they fell under the auspices of the London County Council and in 1965, the Greater London Council. The latter was abolished in 1986, which left London as the only large metropolis in the world without a central administration. In 2000, London-wide government was restored, with the creation of the Greater London Authority.
    • The most commonly seen parishes are Spitalfields, Whitechapel, Mile End New Town, Stepney and Bethnal Green. As the parish boundaries changed, some of them disappeared and were absorbed into other parishes.
      From 1837 to 1889 Whitechapel Registration District was in the county of Middlesex and contained the civil parishes of Holy Trinity Minories, Mile End New Town, Norton Folgate, Old Artillery Ground, Old Tower Without, Spitalfields, St. Botolph Without Aldgate, St. Katherine by the Tower, Tower of London and Whitechapel. After 1889 they came under the jurisdiction of London until 1921/26 when various parishes or parts of them came under Whitechapel, Stepney or St. Botolph Without Aldgate. (The words "Without" and "Within" indicate whether the ward fell outside or within the London Wall, Aldgate being the eastern-most gateway through the London Wall leading from the City of London to Whitechapel and the East End of London). The process was complicated but details can be seen here:-
      Whitechapel
      Middlesex
      London
    • Areas around West Ham, Leyton and East Ham were originally designated as being in Essex but were gradually absorbed into Greater London.
    • Generally, I have not distinguished the various boroughs as being in Middlesex unless there is insufficient information to define a location. The boroughs are simply described as being in London, the City of London being a separate entity.

  • NOTES:
    1. At the time of their marriage, both Simon and Betsy were living at 10, Tewkesbury Buildings. Simon's profession is shown to be tailor, his father, Solomon is also a tailor and his father in law, Alexander, a dealer although all censuses in which he appears show him as being a boot & shoe maker. (Tewkesbury Buildings appears to have been situated on the North side of Whitechapel High Street between Commercial Street and Osborn Street.)
    2. According to the 1891 Census, Descriptions of Enumeration Districts, London / Christchurch / Spitalfields, District 14, North side of High Street from Commercial Street to Osborn Street including Tewkesbury Buildings (see map)

    Marriage Certificate

  • Tewkesbury Buildings is a colony of Dutch Jews. George Yard contains about one hundred English families; the inhabitants are chiefly dock-labourers. The other half of the residents are thieves, costermongers, stallkeepers, professional beggars, rag-dealers, brokers, and small tradesmen. The Jewish poor are independent and self-supporting, and keep up the ceremonies of their nation under the most adverse circumstances. In one black miserable hut in Castle Alley a poor Jewess was found burning "the twelve months' lamp" for her deceased mother, although it was only a glimmering wick in a saucerful of rank oil.

  • NOTES:
    1. According to my late mother, Uncle Sollie and his uncle (presumably on the PEREIRA MENDOZA side), managed to trace the family back to the late 17th. Century in England (probably from the Bevis Marks Synagogue records), when Oliver Cromwell allowed the Jews back into England. Unfortunately, the whereabouts of his records is unknown but we've managed to equal his task. Imagine doing that without the use of the Internet.

  • NOTES:
    1. Alexander was grandson of Alexander 'Solomon' HARING, after whom he was named & Rachel 'Moses' PEREIRA MENDOZA.
      Rosa was granddaughter of Alexander 'Solomon' HARING's younger brother Moses (Morris) 'Solomon' HARING & Rozetta 'Isaac' PARK after whom she was named, making Rosa and Alexander second cousins.

    During the 1914/18 war, Alexander served in Belgium with The Duke of Cambridge Own (The Middlesex Regiment) known as "The Die Hards" or "The Steel Backs" (identified by the cap badge). I have, amongst my memorabilia, some buttons from his uniform.

  • My grandfather and his three brothers were all fishmongers/fryers and some of you may recall my grandparents' fish and chip shop at 9, Leman Street (see map ). The Isaacs boys were all big strong fellows who'd throw hundredweight sacks of potatoes around just for sport (and for making chips). With the advent of Oswald Moseley's "Blackshirts" in the East End of London, they were stonewalled when they met up with the Isaacs brothers. From her photograph great grandma Betsy was no weakling either and in fact her photograph, which stood on top of an enormous black tallboy (that's a piece of furniture before you start making charges of racism) in my grandparents' bedroom, used to frighten me when I was small.

    Apart from helping out in the fish shop, Rosa also worked as a seamstress. I remember her taking me to the "Lane" when I was small and stopping and talking to various people. I'd ask "who was that?" and the inevitable reply was "oh that's a cousin of ours". I guess I took that with a pinch of salt at the time but now realise that it was a fact and that most of the people we met in the area were actually related. I was always fascinated by the names of these people, not knowing at the time that they were Sephardi names like Musaphia, Morpurgo, Dias or da Costa.

    The first of two of the stopping places that I enjoyed was Boxers in Commercial Street where we'd buy cheese, which was then still rationed. The lady behind the counter (I think her name was Millie) would always give me a small peice of cheese to sample. (Actually just recently we went to our local supermarket, "Supersal" in Bet Shemesh; as it was a quiet day the girl behind the counter had time to let me sample the cheeses - brought back memories. Our next port of call would be Mossy Marks in Wentworth Street and his donation to me would be either a handfull of raisins or a piece of smoked salmon.
     


    Other than grandpa's gold watch and the army buttons, the only other heirloom that I have from my grandparents is a Toby jug which used to sit in a very nice walnut sideboard with curved display cupboards at each end, in the "front room" - that's what we called the lounge in the old days. I've since discovered that it was made in about 1830 in Yorkshire and if it was in better condition would be quite valuable.

    Yorkshire Toby Jug
    This nice early Toby jug is of the form attributed to Yorkshire, England and was made circa 1830. Toby has an eight-sided cup in one hand and a hollow jug in the other and a lovely curly pipe in his pocket. Like all the early Toby's, the facial features are finely picked out, his legs are hollow and the feet extend past the base. This jug has a figural handle depicting Pan and the base is moulded to depict Toby's chair. The decoration to Toby's hat and the base is particularly unusual.

    I imagine it's a bit unusual for grandparents to have an influence on one's musical preferences. In the apartment over the fish shop there was an HMV "wind up" gramophone which played 78's. (For the benefit of the younger generation these were brittle plastic records and easily broken. They were later replaced by vinyl records, then cassettes, compact discs, MP3 players and Ipods.) One of the records they had was by "The Sons of the Pioneers" - on one side "TumblingTumbleweed" and on the other "Cool Water". This must have been my first introduction to American Country Music and had a lasting effect.

    Grandpa, I recall, had a great love of the "music halls" and knew many of the entertainers including Sir Harry Lauder. Another of his aquaintances was Alan Breeze who sang in the Billy Cotton Bandshow. Many of the musicians in the band were Jewish but Alan would never tell my grandfather if he was Jewish or not.

  • NOTES:
      My great aunt Julie was the only one of my grandfather's siblings that I saw regularly. She was the only one not to marry despite having a terrific personality, a great operatic singing voice and what a sense of humour. She and Dinah would visit us in Barking, and apart from Sollie they were the only siblings of my grandfather that I can remember seeing. The last time I visited Julie on a trip back to England when she was about 93 years old she was still living an independent life in her flat in Shoreditch. She told us that once a week she would go to the local day care centre for senior citizens "to sing for the old   people".

      One amusing story she told me was, that as she was so much younger than my grandfather, when he came to visit his parents, Julie said "I thought he was the doctor". My grandfather's sunday best was a pin stripe three peice suit with a gold watch and chain across the waistcoat and a homberg hat, all of which enhanced his appearance as a member of the medical profession (well I guess he was a fish surgeon).

      Julie made up for not having a family of her own by keeping track of her siblings' families. She knew the names of all their children and grandchildren and much of this branch of the family tree is due to her recollections.

      One of the family members that she recalled was Sam Gompers to whom she referred to as "Uncle Gompers". I spent several years looking for a connection but it wasn't until I started researching my son-in-law's family that I found a tree on the Internet where there was large collection of Gompers individuals and I found that Sam Gomper's grandfather, Samuel (Solomon Shabtay) 'Moses' Gompers (Emmerich) had married to Henriette (Jette) 'Solomon' Haring, the older sister of Alexander 'Solomon' and Moses 'Solomon' Haring.
