Title: The Jews in England during the 13th century
Author: Ebright, Alpha Mills
Date: 1907
Publisher: University of Missouri
Abstract: There has been much difference of opinion as to when the Jews first appeared in England. Most historians say they were brought over from the Continent by William the Conqueror upon pecuniary consideration. But there are some who contend that Jews were in England before the Conquest. This evidence is none too convincing on either side, but it seemingly proves that Jews were residents of England earlier than the Norman invasion. But their number was no doubt small, and their influence slight, which, coupled with the fact that such great numbers are known to have come over with William, has led writers to infer that the Conqueror brought the first Jews into England.
