The Hart Family in London

This page lists those members of the Hart family whose origins we are researching. Entries in italics are inferred or uncertain, or have been supplied by other researchers and not personally verified by us. The list does not include children believed to have died in infancy. The earlier generations lived in the East End of London, but later branches of the family lived in the Southwark area. Please contact Chris Warren if you feel that the family listed here is connected with your own research.

The Harts were a Jewish family who were living in the Aldgate area of the City of London in the early 19th century. We have traced the line back to a Hyam Hart who married Lydia Cohen in 1792. We have been able to trace those of their children named in the will of Hyam Hart, but we do not know if there were any others. This generation lived in Spitalfields and Whitechapel.

Some of the names below are linked to a more detailed record in the on-line family tree (people marked with an asterisk do not have a full record). When you click on a link, the linked record will be displayed in a separate window. There you can see the family relationships as we understand them, together with notes on what we have found in parish registers, census returns and other records. All of the places named below are in London unless otherwise indicated.
