======= SEIXAS Family Tree ===============================================

[Edited from 'The Grandees - America's Sephardic Elite' pg.31-6 ...
"The Seixas family who have a Spanish sounding name, offer an example of
 what can happen to Jewish names. After escaping from Spain during the
 Inquisition, some of the Seixases made their way to what is now Germany
 where the name became Germanized to Sachs, Saks... Meanwhile, some
 Seixases remained in Spain as 'secret Jews', while others became honest
 converts... to Catholicism .. For six hundred years, from the eighth to
 thirteenth centuries, the Jews were Spanish history... There had been
 Jews on the Iberian Peninsula since pre-Christian times... At the
 beginning of the eight century came the Moors...surged forward in Spain
 ... bore the Jews with them ... The role... would be remembered ...
 when the tide turned the other way [re: the Spanish Inquisition] ... "]

See Jewish Tree Charts for"Mendes-Seixas" www.AmericanJewishArchives.org

Possibly was Asser(Asher?) Levy VAN SWELLEM born in Schwelm, Westphalia,
  Poland or Lithuania. Escaped Inquisition to Dutch Pernambuco(now Recife
  Brazil)and when Portuguese conquered city, he took ship St.Catherine
  to Dutch New Amsterdam [NY City] arriving with 22 others on 7 Sept 1654.
  He was a "Kosher" butcher, merchant, civic leader, land owner. He went
  to American court for Jewish rights, stayed when British took New York
  in 1664. He has No known children or descendents.] |

Researched by

with Chart & Information by
  Doug Hinkel doughinkel@aol.com

The SEIXAS Name is pronounced "Say-shus" -rhymes with "gracious"; means "pebbles, pile of tiny stones". For Doug's wife CARMEN ROSA SEIXAS-MINAN, born in Ecuador So.America ... Most Seixas ancestors were originally Shephardim Orthodox Jews of Spain/Portugal - not yet proven definitely. [see www.Shepardim.com] Other Zatini etc ancestors were from Italy, France, Croatia, USA, Caribbean Islands and
South America Spanish, Inca.

=== PROBLEMS - to be solved :

Abraham Mendes Seixas 1810 family had only Jewish names;direct ancestors were only Isaac and Abraham; Mendes was almost always used in name. How could a devout Jew marry Catholic? [Often in those times, men took a "lover" (even if married) and had children out of wedlock with the mother raising kids - per Dante, born in St.Thomas & lives in Minnesota]

He is "connected" only because he travelled from U.S.A. to Venezuela, probably going through Curacao by ship where Maria Martis was born [the island has a "mother of the Caribbean" Jewish Synagogue, but most are Christian & Catholic] and through St.Thomas [a prominent trade port] where Elias Victor was born.

Why was the father listed only as Abraham "Seixas" (not Abraham "Mendes Seixas") in the baptism record of E V Seixas? No other Abraham has yet been found in St.Thomas
census/church/other records or in the Caribbean region about 1837-38.

Elias & Victor names have not been found in any ancestors for Mendes Seixas,

Do not know Maria Martis ancestors; her family might have an Elias or Victor name. she appears to be Catholic - baptism was at Sts.Peter & Paul Cathedral, Did only she register with the church (and Abraham was not present) ?

If there is another Abraham Seixas in/around St.Thomas in the late 1830s - how do you find him, where do you look for records, was he the father and whether his ancestors have Elias or Victor names to pass on ?

=== Information about ABRAHAM MENDES SEIXAS born 1810 in Charleston S.C. :

Marriage record for Abraham Seixas & Maria Martis - [none located to date;
  possible did not marry]
Per 'Commerce in La Guaira, History of Venezuela' [page 430, translated]
"Seixas, Abraham Mendes, Jewish merchant born in the United States, but more
  connected with Hebrews of Curacao, brother of merchant Benjamin Mendes Seixas
  Entered in 1842 the company 'Seixas, Pardo & Co" of the port La Guaira with
  B. Mendes Seixas and M. Pardo Jr. He previously had a "social" commercial
  house 'A.M.Seixas & Co' in LaGuaira starting 1846 which became major importer
  from Baltimore with 15 ships arriving in 1846-47."

He was born to a famous & influential JEWISH family with roots from Portugal
via London and Brasil to Colonial America in 1730s.

=== Information about MARIA MARTIS:[Martis is still prominent name in Curacao]

She was born in Curacao [per birth record of Elias Victor] & was in St.Thomas
when son was born - did she come with Abraham? or her family? or alone? when?
Her birth year was probably about 1820 [if she is the "Maria Effers" who died
in 1868 at age 48 (see below) and thus gave birth to Elias Victor at age 18].

She probably was CATHOLIC, since Elias was baptized at the Catholic Cathedral
