Jews from London

There were Jews living in London as 'Hidden Jews', and a number of these Jews emigrated to Barbados, where the Council was more enlightened. The synagogue in Barbados was already built in 1654, London had to wait until 1657. Some names of London Jews whom we know moved to Barbadoes are:

Bernard de Caceres (Casseres) [fl.1661] settled in Barbadoes
Henrique de Caceres (Casseres) [fl.1661] settled in Barbadoes
Jacob Fraso [fl.1661] settled in Barbadoes
David Raphael de Mercado [d.1685] endenizened, 1661
