      hi Amanda - while trying to find the origins of my great-great- grandmother - i saw an entry at the Cape Town Archives of a Louisa Albertina (nee Bergquist) that was married to a Titus Solomon.  Louisa was from St Helena Island and was the daugther of Charles Frederick Bergquist and Louisa Yon.  This was the file and reference number
       
      MOOC 6/9/19472           ref: 1729/52
       
      (The record contains Louisa's estate papers and mention the husband as Titus Solomon - i can't remember the children's names)

      While researching my Solomon connection, I came across The Brown
      Family Papers, held at the University of Cape Town Libraries,
      Manuscripts and Archives, donated in the mid 1970ies by a member of
      the family of Joseph Solomon (brother of the above Saul)who left St.
      Helena in 1831 and settled in Cape Town. I ordered some photocopies
      and among them was a copy of notes from a Prayer Book that belonged
      to Saul Solomon. The inscription reads:
      S. Solomon.
      The gift of his mother which he received by the Europea Store Ship,
      4th July 1808.
      S. Solomon, born 25th December 1776
      Margaret Solomon, born 1st October 1782
      Births:
      Benjamin Solomon, born 23rd June 1801
      Phoebe Solomon, born 20th May 1804
      Henry Rob Solomon, born 28th July 1806
      Miriam Solomon, born 8th July 1808
      John Blenham Solomon, born 2nd December 1810
      The above were born at St. Helena.
      Margaret Sarah Solomon, born 5th January 1813 at 3 a.m. in London,
      West Square
      Lee Solomon, born 29th March 1815 at S. Helena
      It pleased the Almighty to take from me my dear wife, Margaret
      Solomon, the 14th June 1815 at 2 o'clock p.m.
      The Prayer Book is an indefinite loan to the Jewish Library in Cape
      Town.
      The Brown Family Papers also confirm what is mentioned in the Susser
      Archives, ie that Saul Solomon was one of 22 or 21 or 18 children
      (those are the numbers I have so far come across), that his father
      was Nathaniel Solomon and his mother was Phoebe de Metz, born in
      Leyden and part of a Dutch Jewish family some of whom settled in
      London. (Her sister Matilda de Metz married Levy Salomons and they
      are the parents of Philip Salomons and Sir David Salomons). Phoebe de
      Metz married Nathaniel Solomon at the age of 15 and apparently was
      left a widow at 40 and lived to a ripe old age in comfortable
      circumstances in London. The Solomon family seem to have originated
      in Kent and the places mentioned are Canterbury and Margate. (My
      Lewis Gideon (Solomon)gives his place of birth with Canterbury, Saul
      is supposed to have been born in Margate).

        Hi Sigi

        Just wondering if you know anything about the Moss family who are connected with the Solomon's from St Helena? My great great great grandfather was George Moss. I'm trying to find out who his parents were. Look forward to hearing from you.
        Regards

          Hi Rebecca,
          I've been trying to tie the Moss family together for ages, without much success but haven't worked on that line either for a while and need to reconnect. What I do know is that Hannah Moss (who married Joseph Solomon) had a sister Phoebe Moss born abt 1799 in London and died there in 1882. She married George Bagshaw in London in 1822. I will supply you off list with some details from another researcher.

            Thanks for that it's all very interesting isn't it? The Solomon's and Moss' like you said seem to be very hard to figure out the connection between. I'm sure we're probably related though in some convoluted way haha.
            Thanks for replying to me and look forward to more info from you.
