The Musaphia Family
from Lisbon, Portugal
c.1553


  • The surname Musaphia is of Hebrew origin. Musaph/Mus(s)af (מוסף) is an additional prayer recited in several services.
  • Lisbon is the capital and largest city of Portugal.
      On August 6, 711 Lisbon was taken by the Moors (it was called al-ʾIšbūnah in Arabic), under whose rule the city flourished. The Moors, who were Muslims from North Africa and the Middle East, built many mosques and houses as well as a new city wall, currently named the Cerca Moura. The city kept a diverse population including Christians, Berbers, Arabs, Jews and Saqalibas.
  • In 1506, thousands of "New Christians" (converted Jews) were massacred in Lisbon.
  • After their expulsion from Spain many Jews made their way to Portugal until they were expelled from that country as well.

  • NOTES:
    1. These earliest recorded members of the Musaphia family above have been assumed to be siblings and have been shown here together with their possible parentage as indicated below.
    2. Recent information has indicated that Emanuel may have been the son of Felip Salomao ibn YAHYA (also known as DINIS or DIONIS) and Gracia Abigail de FALACIOS or PALACIOS, daughter of Pedro de PALACIOS and Felipa BARBOSA and believed to be the sister of Rabbi Isaac PALACHE of Fez.
      This may only be based on the fact that his son, Benjamin, in his published Latin work on medicine, calls himself "Dionysius".
    3. The ibn YAHYA family trace their lineage through a tapestry and recorded in a work by Eliakim Carmoly;
      "Sefer Divre HaYamim le-Bene Yahya" "ספר דברי הימים לבני יחייא" (Book of Chronicles of the sons/family of Yahya) (Frankfurt am Main: Bet HaSefarim shel A. Koyfman, 1850).
      They can be linked back to the Exilarchs - 'Prince of the Captivity' or 'Head of the Exile' - (Heb. ראש גולה, rosh galut) (Aram. רֵישׁ גָּלוּתָא, resh galuta), who are descended from King David.
      See:
      1. The Jewish Encyclopedia
      2. Wikipedia
      3. Jewish Virtual Library
      4. Graham Senior Milne's article about the The Exilarchs and the possible connection to Don Abraham Senior Coronel who appears elsewhere in this tree as Abraham Senior Coronel alias Fernan Perez .
    4. I am not yet convinced of the relationship between Emanuel Musaphia and of Felip Salomao ibn YAHYA.
      However I have included the link to an additional page showing the ancestry of the latter, indicating relationships as though they were definite.
    5. Although the Musaphia surname disappears from my direct family links with the marriage of Sarah 'Moses' MUSAPHIA to Emanual CRESPO, it reappears later with the marriages of my Great Grand Aunts, Sarah and Jane 'Moses' HARING to Moses and Joseph 'Aaron' MUSAPHIA in the late 1800s.

    2. In his Latin work on medicine he called himself Dionysius.
    3. King Christian IV of Denmark appointed him his physician in ordinary at which time he was living in Glückstadt, Holstein.
    4. Probably after Christian's death in 1648, he went to Amsterdam where he became a member of the college of rabbis.
    5. According to the records, his wife, died in 1634. He must have remarried in about 1638, to a Sarah, who bore him 3 more children. Sarah is recorded as the witness to the marriage notice or their daughters Deborah (1677 TiM 691-47) and Rebecca (1677 TiM 691- 46).

  • NOTES:
    1. Joseph has been assumed to be the son of the Musaphia branch from Schleswig Holstein.
      The closest match for Joseph's parents would be Jacob 'Joseph MUSAPHIA born 1647 in Gluckstadt and Rebecca 'Benjamin' MUSAPHIA born 1660.
      However, the estimated birth date for Joseph of 1726 would make these parents too old. It is possible that he was born earlier - about 1712 which would make his age comensurate with the ages of his proposed siblings.
