Generation No. 1

 

1.       MYER SAMUEL1 ISAACS was born Abt. 1758.  He married REBECCA SAMUELS November 11, 1796, daughter of SAMUEL REYZER and BREINE IZAKS.  She was born Abt. 1773.

 

Notes for MYER SAMUEL ISAACS:

        Myer Samuel Isaacs lived in Leeuwarden, Friesland, Holland, until impoverished by the Napoleonic wars. His name in Dutch was Myer Isaks or Meijer Izaak; his Hebrew name was Myer, son of Samuel Isaacs. The Dutch also spell the name Meyer or Meijer or Meier. Isaacs also seemed to be spelled variously as Isaac or Izak or Yzaak. Napoleon required individuals to have full names. His father-in-law's name was Samuel Jacobs Reyzer and his mother-in-laws name was Breine Izaks.     Isaacs' profession, listed as banker, may be been a pawnbroker or merchant, which was a type of banker in the early 1800's.

        According to the tax register of the time, he is listed as a merchant, living in the Kleine Kerkstreet (Kirkstraat) 1808.  He was born around 1758. He purchased the house in 1807 for 2,305 carg. In 1810, he borrows 4,000 car. guilders from Breine Izaks, Rebecca's mother, using their furniture as security for the debt. The same research indicates that he and his wife had 10 children that survived, many more than had been previously known.

        Upon moving to London in 1814 to escape war and economic turmoil, he supported his family by teaching. He also became a burial minister. Four of his five sons became rabbis. Myer Samuel Isaacs' father is listed as Izaak (e-mail from Chaim Caran caranchaim@ailatcity.co.il, January 20, 2004)

From the tombstones: Rosa, wife of John Isaacs, of this city, died 20.10.1854 aged 44. She was a sister of Mr Jacob Isaacs, Reader of the Sydney Synagogue."

Notes for JOHN ISAACS ??:

       It is not totally clear whether John Isaacs was one of the sons of Myer Samuel Isaacs, who moved with his family from Leewarden, Holland to London in 1814.  Some accounts of what may be his brothers described four sons and others five sons.

       One source lists John Isaacs, the brother of Jacob Isaacs, as one of the early free immigrants to Australia.  He arrived with his wife Rosa on April 24, 1833 on the ship "Enchantress." Even this book describes confusion over several John Isaacs. 

       John Isaacs was one of the early leaders of the Sydney Synagogue, and he was very active in the Jewish community.  He also had a house and shop in George Street.  He stood as a candidate for the Bourke Ward at the first Municipal election and was a freemason.

       The account of his life suggests that he and his wife were childless, and speculates that they moved back to London before their deaths.

Notes for EPHRAIM SAMUEL(S):

When Lewis Isaacs died in 1869, Rev. David Isaacs and Mrs. Ephraim Samuel(s) were listed as siblings to Lewis Isaacs.  Thus Mrs. Ephraim Samuel(s) -- it is listed with and without an "s" -- clearly is one of the sisters of Samuel, David, Jacob and Lewis who married Ephraim Samuel(s).  Unfortunately, her maiden name is not listed, so it is not clear which sister it is.

Notes for RABBI DAVID MYER ISAACS:

        David Myer Isaacs was born in 1810 in Leeuwarden, Holland.  He moved with his parents to London, England in 1814.  He was placed under the tutelage of Solomon Herschell, then Chief Rabbi of the Jews of Great Britain.

        His first congregation was in Bristol, England in about 1832, the same year he married Esther Levy, daughter of Joel Levy and Rachel Joseph.  He was the first rabbi in England to deliver regularly sermons in English.  In 1835, be began serving the ministry in Liverpool, where he remained for 35 years.  He also served for about 20 years as Professor at the Liverpool College, where he taught Hebrew and oriental literature.  Finally, he settled in Manchester, England.  For many years, he alternated preaching at both Liverpool and Manchester.  In 1837, he delivered a funeral oration on the occasion of the burial of King William IV.

        An obituary in "The Jewish Messenger," founded by his brother Samuel Myer Isaacs, said: "His name and fame were not confined to Great Britain.  His bold and manly utterances, his independent bearing, his unswerving and uncompromising adherence to the Judaism of his fathers, his matchless eloquence and power as a pulpit orator, were themes of admiration in all countries where English Jews or their descendants had residence."

        The obituary also compares the two brothers, David and Samuel, saying they closely resembled each other in voice and manner, as well as physical build.  It goes on "With them, their Judaism was not confined to the synagogue; but ever ready as they were to aid all causes that tended to the improvement of their people, they never shirked their duties as citizens of the commonweath, and advocated and substantially turthered? all public institutions."

        [The same obituary describes him as the youngest of five brothers.]

        In another obituary, he was described as rigidly orthodox and of the "old school," although "fairly tolerant" of other views.  He was also described as being "gifted with a forcible, somewhat impulsive and eloquent style of oratory, tinged with a peculiarly caustic humor, he became very popular as a preacher."

        In 1872, he traveled to New York to be present at the 70th birthday of his brother, Samuel Myer Isaacs (Jewish Chronicle, December 27, 1872)

        He died on May 1, 1879.

        The Register of Births and Burials of the Old Hebrew Congregation (Elizabeth Ford has a copy), March 21, 1886, lists the birth dates of Joel, Elias, Julia, Aragbella, Sarah, Caroline and Myer David. According to these records, two children died in their first year, Elias and Caroline.

Notes for MYER DAVID ISAACS:

       Myer David Isaacs was a playwright and actor in Sydney.  He was born in 1851 by one estimate, probably in London, England, and probably earlier than 1851.  At some point he moved to Australia, where his uncle Jacob Myer Isaacs already lived.  An April 12, 1856 article in "The People's Advocate" wrote of him as the author of comedietta.  On November 2, 1860, another of his plays, again a comedy, was performed in Sydney, and was reviewed in the Sydney Morning Herald.

       He then apparently spent a couple of years as newspaper editor of "The Miner and General Advertiser" in Lambing Flat - Burrangong on the newly discovered gold fields in the West of New South Wales.  He apparently was an able journalist and a powerful orator.  He became involved in several institutions: secretary of the Burrangong Race Club, founder and chairman of the Burrangong Amateur Dramatic Society, organized a committee for the relief of the "Victims of the Recent Murderous Outrage," president of the Burrangong Prospecting Association and the Diggers' Mutual Society and secretary of a move to secure better parliamentary representation of the area.

       He authored another play, "The Battle of Life," which was performed in 1862 in Sydney.  He returned to the gold fields, and was active in pressing for better police protection of the gold transports and for better roads in the area.  He also appeared to practice some law. 

       In 1865, he moved to Brisbane, where his new play "The Bell of Brisbane or the Lady of Queensland" was performed.

Notes for MAX LICHTENSTEIN:

Max was born Uschisoff, son of Doctor Joseph (c.1795-c.1885, ex Vitebsk) and Freda, in Mesel (Memel?), North Germany and trained to be a Doctor there.  He joined his cousin Louis Paykel, also a son of a Doctor, (born in Odessa, Russia in 1873) at the Hospital and Medical College, Ekaterinoslav, South Russia (now known as Dnepropetrovsk) to complete medical studies.  Between 1835 and 1917 Jews in Russia were forced by law to live in the "Pale of Settlement", an area stretching between the Baltic and the Black Sea and embracing Odessa and Ekaterinoslav.  Poverty and anti-Semitism were rife.  Whenever a disaster such as an outbreak of cholera or animal disease occurred the Jews were blamed and a wave of pogroms would erupt.  They would be beaten tortured and murdered by mobs of Cossacks who roamed through the streets and burnt houses.  In 1827 the Tsar decreed that each Jewish community would deliver up a quota of military recruits.  They were to serve 25 years from the age of 18 but could be drafted from 12.  Whilst in the Army, strenuous efforts were made to convert them to Christianity.  Families not only lost their sons but their religious succession.  (See  www.friends-partners.org/partners/beyond...pale/index.htm/ )

In 1893, probably mid-summer, Max and Louis escaped Russia, possibly under hay in a cart and are thought to have travelled across Europe bribing border guards. They caught a ship to New York, where they learnt English at night school.  They probably also lived in Sheboygan near Milwaukee where Louis' brothers and sisters had settled.  Albert and Max Paykel later married their cousins (Max Uschisoff's sisters) Rika (1865-1930) and Ida (1867-1942), the girls having changed their surnames to Usow.  Both couples plus Louis' younger sister Leah and her husband Benjamin Burman migrated to New Zealand between 1897 and 1900.

After about a year Max and Louis went to Belgium and sailed from Antwerp for Australia in the SS Somerfield, arriving in Port Adelaide early in 1895.  While Louis worked in Adelaide, Max visited Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane and sailed on to Auckland, arriving in May 1895 with £5 in his pocket but he was, at least, in a country free from oppression.  Max soon advised Louis of the business opportunities presented by the flourishing Kauri Gum industry in Northland and Louis joined him, arriving with less in his pocket than had Max.  Believing he would be better accepted in business, Louis, son of Aaron, changed he name to Louis Arnoldson.  Peter Lichtenstein thinks his grandfather Max simply adopted the name of the European Principality to rid himself of his Russian surname.

Kauri gum is the resin of kauri trees.  It oozes through fractures in the bark and congeals, forming lumps which fall to the ground where it becomes buried by layers of forest debris.  Some was found on the surface but most was found at different depths and recovered by diggers.  They drove metal rods into the ground to detect the deposits.  The Northern gumfields were no land of milk and honey, but a wasteland of wet rushes, scrub and coarse fern.  The magnificent kauri forests of thousands of years ago had long since vanished.  (David notes that the Kauri was widely and extensively exploited from the early 1800's until it was almost totally cleared by the 1930's but. there are still lots in the Waipoua Kauri Forest.  Graham recalls piles of limbs of kauri trees being burnt on Don McCathies's farm at upper Waiwera around the late 1930's.  The knot-free trunks were lopped at the first branch, often over a hundred feet from the ground.  The waste was appalling by modern standards).  The gum was cleaned of dirt and exported, mainly to America and England where it was an important constituent of high grade varnish and, from 1910, in the manufacture of linoleum.  The Maoris used gum for chewing (it was passed from mouth to mouth), to light fires and for tattooing.

By the end of 1895 the cousins had opened their first store at Matakohe and established a firm named Lichtenstein and Arnoldson, Kauri Gum Merchants, Importers and Storekeepers.  The store was in three divisions - a general store, one for produce of all kinds, the third for kauri gum.  Gum would be brought by diggers to Matakohe and the cousins would frequently travel around gumfields in Northern and Southern Wairoa purchasing large quantities.  It was taken in bags on horse drawn carts to the wharf on Kaipara Harbour, by steamer to Helensville and by train to Auckland, the same route in reverse bringing in supplies and stock for the shop.  The families all pitched in getting the goods up from the wharf.

Even though they had virtually no capital it was not long before they were prospering and the business expanded rapidly.  Within a year two more stores were opened - at Ru Point and Opitonui where Max also ran the local Post and Telegraph Office which was later burnt down.  Soon they took up a lease of some 40,000 acres of native land and started buying gum from the diggers who were mainly Maori and Dalmatians.  The gum was all shapes and sizes and covered with dirt which the diggers would scrape off.  As business prospered other leases were acquired and in the summer as many as 100 gum diggers would be employed.

The prosperous times did not last.  The 1930's came and with them the Great Depression.  The Kauri Gum Industry collapsed completely.  Gum became unsaleable due to a cheap synthetic substitute being developed for varnish and linoleum manufacture.  Louis, said to be one of the first car owners in Auckland, died on 1 Feb 1933 when his car crashed into a horse drawn lorry in Beach Road, near Auckland Railway Station, probably due to a heart attack.

Max continued the business concentrating on property purchase and management including Brighton Hall Flats in Brighton Road, Parnell - Spanish Mission style, flats in Royal Oak and office/shops in Eden Terrace.  Patsy remembers doing the rounds of these premises with her grandfather, collecting the rent.

Notes for BARNARD DAVID ISAACS:

Professor Barnard (Barney) Haysack was born in 1856 as Barnard Isaacs.  There is some confusion whether his name was Barnard or Barnett.  At some point he changed his name to Haysack.  An obituary from the May 13, 1904 Bayswater Chronicle describes him as Professor Haysack, "one of the foremost teachers of oratory" in England.  The obituary says that he "inherited his father's gifts of both intellect and eloquence, and was equally successful in the fields of oratory, elocution and literature.  As a teacher he had few rivals, some of the most prominent members of both Houses of Parliament being his pupils." He died at the age of 47.

29.  MICHAEL MORRIS4 LEWIS (REBECCA3 ISAACS, JACOB MYER2, MYER SAMUEL1) was born March 21, 1868, and died August 02, 1947.  He married DAISY BOYD.  She was born 1878, and died April 04, 1948.

 

Notes for MICHAEL MORRIS LEWIS:

MICHAEL MORRIS LEWIS (Mick): Born 21/03/1868 (Tephilloth).      Died 02/08/1947

Buried Row A4, Plot 19 in Old Hebrew Area, Waikumete Cemetery as advised by Mary Watson 28/03/99.

Marriage: Michael Morris LEWIS 1897 Folio 3695 married Daisy BOYD.

Probate: Michael Morris LEWIS died 12 Aug 1947 BBAE 1570 0978/47 Auckland.

 

        Michael commenced his commercial career working for a firm of jewellers, then with Kempthorne Prosser & Co., wholesale druggists.  It was with the mercantile house of P. Hayman & Co., however, that he became so well identified.  Their head office was in a handsome Edwardian commercial building on the north side of Customs St.,East, not far from Queen St., Auckland.  (Still standing in 1999, identifiable by a plaque over the main entrance with intertwined letters "P.H." Sadly, the building will probably become a casualty of the Britomart development scheme.)  He was variously Senior Traveller, Auckland Warehouse Manager, Wellington Manager and finally General Manager.  He was well regarded in the commercial world of his day. 

        In 1897 Michael married Daisy Boyd, born 1878, died 04/04/1948.  I still (1999) have her engagement ring containing three rubies, said to be the best ring in Hayman & Co's stock at the time.  She was regarded askance by the Lewis family because, although good looking, she was a Gentile and her antecedents were comparatively modest.  Her non-Jewish status no doubt offended her mother in law Rebecca, daughter of a Rabbi.  Her father was said to be the regimental tailor of an imperial regiment stationed in New Zealand during the Maori Wars.  Her Mother was said to be French, her maiden name was Ceraneau or Cheraneau and she lived to be 100 or so.

Annie was born in Auckland and married Frederick Myer Solomons (a tobacconist born in England about 1868) in Auckland 02/12/1896.  They had three children, Doreen, Thelma and, according to a family Bible note (copy held by GFF), a girl Olive Meryl, born 31/12/1905, died 30/01/1906 and a boy, Ernest Louis, born 15/11/1907, died 24/12/1908.  Ernest, according to Lorraine Elliott, Annie's great granddaughter, fell down stairs and broke his neck.  The family moved to Sydney, Australia, in 1906 or 1907 after Frederick was declared bankrupt and to seek treatment for his tuberculosis.  (There was little that could be done for the condition at that time other than extended hospitalisation and rest.  It would be the 1940's before drugs such as penicillin would be available.)  He ran a tobacconist shop in Pitt Street, Sydney and the family lived in the Mosman area.  Frederick died in 1925 or 1926 and Annie committed suicide 6 weeks later, no doubt shattered by her husband's death, their frugal life and the earlier loss of two young children.

33.  DR. DAVID NATHAN4 ISAACS (NATHANIEL JOHN3, JACOB MYER2, MYER SAMUEL1) (Source: (1) Family tree prepared by Elizabeth (Liz) Anne Foord in 1997., (2) "The First Jewish Cemetery: Colonial Jewry in Wellington", p.104., (3) "The First Jewish Cemetery: Colonial Jewry in Wellington", p.104.) was born December 09, 1882 in Wellington, New Zealand, and died 1977 in Rona Bay, Eastbourne, New Zealand.  He married MAJORIE ROSE SAUNDERS.  She was born August 13, 1891.


Notes for DR. DAVID NATHAN ISAACS:

        David Nathan Isaacs was a dental surgeon who was born in Wellington, New Zealand on December 9, 1882, the son of Nathan John and Kate Isaacs.

        In April 1915, during World War I, New Zealand established the New Zealand Stationary Hospital which was stationed in Port Said, Egypt.  Isaacs served as quartermaster as well as dentist.  In September 1915, he was promoted to captain.  In October 1915, the hospital was dispatched on the ship Marquette to Salonika in northern Greece to enter the war on the Allies' side.  However, 60 miles short of the goal, the ship was torpedoed.  Isaacs, who saw the torpedo heading toward the ship, survived, although nearly 170 people were drowned.  Eventually replacement people and equipment were brought forward, and the hospital was established in Salonika.  Later it was sent to Amiens in France.

        After the war, he returned to New Zealand in 1919 and remained an officer in the territorial force until compulsory retirement in 1948.  He was awarded the M.B.E. for community service in the war.  After the war, he lived at Rona Bay, Eastbourne.  He married out of the faith, and died in 1977 at the age of 94.

        His initial training in dentistry was in Wellington, before New Zealand had a Dental School. He was admitted to the Dentists' Register in 1904, after three years' apprenticeship. He then studied in London and Toronto, and was awarded DDS by the University of Toronto in 1906. When he returned to New Zealand that year, he set up practice as a dental surgeon in Wellington.

        In August 1914, he joined the Advance Party of the N.Z. Expeditionary Force, as a dentist in the Medical Corps, that went to Samoa to take over the German Radio Station there.

        He was awarded the MBE in 1919 for his military service.

        He remained an officer on the Reserve List until 1948 (not in the territorial force).

        He resumed his dental practice in Wellington after the war. In 1922, he married Marjorie Rose Saunders. She was born on August 13, 1891. They lived in Eastbourne from 1924. He retired in 1957.
