Final Decline - 1869 onward

All alterations to the Rules of KKNI had to be approved by the Island's Attorney General, as the congregation was not incorporated, but existed by virtue of an Act of the Legislature, and the regulations governing the Congregation needed approval (see documents at the start of this blog).

On 6 May 1869, only 8 contributing members of the Kaal remained on the Island ( This is not saying there were only eight Jews on the Island - there were more, but they were not members of the Kaal)
These remaining eight were:
Michael berber Isaacs
Joshua Levi
Solomon Berber Isaaca
Jacob Lindo
Benjamin Lobo
Daniel Lobo
Benjamin Cohen d' Azevedo
Edward S Daniels

The Legislature of Barbados allowed that six trustees be appointed, 2empowered to convey the property to the London Congregation for its own uses"
