1 We know almost nothing of his background. He must have lived in Paris for a time, where he sold diamonds to the royal court. He was supposedly the first Navarro to move to Amsterdam; he was a Parnaas first of Beth Jacob, the secind Portuguese Jewish Community in Amsterdam, and later Beth Israel.
Abraham Navarro owned a ship, the Salamander. For some reason, the Dutch Navy confiscated it and its contents in the Carribean, near the island of St. Thomas. In 1600, he tried and failed to recover his property through a trial.
All of his children listed here eventually used the name Nabarro; all migrated to Recife, Brazil.
For a more complete picture of the Jewish
community in Dutch Brazil (including
the roles played by the Navarros), see Jews in Colonial Brazil [S44]. The records of the Recife synagogue (Zur Israel) were moved to Amsterdam in 1654. They appear, in translation and with commentary, in The records of the earliest Jewish community in the New World [S43]. Several other sources rely on them. 
NAVARRO NUņEZ, Abraham (I1)
 
2 At least one living or private individual is linked to this note - Details withheld. Family F50
 
3 Except for Esther and Rebecca, other children listed are provable. Ester and Rebecca could be the children of a Mozes Nabarro of Venetie, who married Branca Levie (b. 1714, Mainz) in 1742. Family F51
 
4 Has a brother Mozes Diaz Pato NAVARRO, Rachel (I60)
 
5 He may be the same Moses or Aaron. We know that he exists, since his sister-in-law had nieces. She witnessed their marriage, suggesting (but not proving), that he and his wife were deceased by that time. NAVARRO NUņEZ, ?? (I61)
 
6 At least one living or private individual is linked to this note - Details withheld. Living (I21)
 
7 Is already a widow with Ester da Silva before he married Simcha de Zamora. GABAY, Salomon (I82)
 
8 Marianne Penha is apparently the widow of Jacob del Valhe PENHA, Marianne (I110)
 
9 Moses Navarro, a Naval Cadet, participated in the original Dutch Expedition which captured the town from the Portuguese in 1630. By May, 1635, he had been on unpaid leave for some time, and he asked to become a "freeman". After this was granted, he obtained a broker's license, and in 1637 bought a sugar plantation and sugar mill for 45,000 florins. He was also a tax farmer. By 1645, he was on of the richest Jews in Dutch Brazil. His three brothers also lived in Brazil around this time. He must have had a sister as well.
In 1654, Recife was besieged and retaken by the Portuguese, and all the Jews had to leave. Moses then returned to Amsterdam. 
NAVARRO, Moses (I70)
 
10 She was the aunt of a certain Rachel Nunes Nabarro, who was born in 1668 in Amsterdam and married Jacob Nunes Almeijda NABARRO, Rachel (I77)
 
11 The first and 3rd children listed is provably Isaac's children with Ester Porto, and the middle child is probable. NABARRO, Isaac (I129)
 
12 The following children are children of a certain Samson Vigevano, so it is assumed that they are the same Samson Vigevano whose entry we are reading since there is only one Samson Vigevano in "38. Trouwen in Mokum [S41]. Family F53
 
13 The son listed is not proven but likely.
 
Family F65
 
14 They had several daughters. By comparing his signature on his marriage registration with those of the elders of the Zur Israel congregation in Recife, we can see that this is the same Jacob Navarro who is one of the elders. NAVARRO, Jacob (I59)
 
15 "Announcement by Benjamin Nabarro of the closing of the West London Tent (no.4)x - 20/11/1899 - Reference No. A2/82"

Document title is mentioned at http://www.zionistarchives.org.il but no scanned image/text is available. 
NABARRO, Benjamin Nunes (I849)
 
16 "Chippeck was not a real name. It was made up by an immigration offical when Michael Chippeck and his family arrived into England from Poland during the early part of the last century. Their original name was a long and complicated Polish surname." - Helen Nabarro, Ricardo's wife. Family F413
 
17 "Jock" Brown was a Scottish merchant seaman. BROWN, Jock (I576)
 
18 "Monumental inscriptions in the burial ground of the Jewish synagogue at Bridgetown, Barbados" has a burial record for one Sarah Turrs, who died in Barbados TORRES, Sarah (I18)
 
19 "This looks suspicious, given the wedding registration date for her parents. However, her brother?s birthdate presents the same problem, and he is provably the son of Isaac Peixotto and Rachel Maduro. Perhaps they didn?t bother to register until long after they were married." - Jeffrey Adler PEIXOTTO, Sara (I1204)

Derrick Nabarro

Trained as bomber pilot straight from leaving school 6th form. Shot down into sea off Kiel, fished from sea by Germans and placed in hospital, then Stalag P.O.W. camp.
Escaped, caught, escaped again. Caught in South of France, impisioned, group escape. Finally made it home to England - one of very few to ever do so.

Worked for M19 advising air crews, film workers, etc on escaping etc.
Trained for war against Japan.
Wrote two books - one on escape (was amused that cover illustration showed him breaking out of camp at night in full uniform!)

Awarded M.M. for escape and writing second book, more a 'fiction', being a story of Burmese and political intrigue, based on his experience in the Far East.

Sent to Manchester University by R.A.F. after war, then became (I think) Wing Commander, stationed in Cyprus during Greek/Turkish troubles there. Then returned to Devon and farmed with second wife Valerie.
Finally retired and my wife and I became close friends with him in 1980's.


Family

Father: Orchestral conductor, music hall/stage, whose brother was conductor of Bournmouth Symphony Orchestra.
Mother: School teacher, Lancashire.
Cousin: Sir Gerald Nabarro M.P. (Derek was amused by fact that one of Gerald's books received 'worst book of the year award - but I found in contrast , his non-fiction work on steam locamotives and trains excellent).

Two children by first marraige: son qualified in building planning/ clerk of works/ site management. Daughter qualified nurse.
Died in car accident on tricky Devon road.

Notes

Told camp commandant to 'f... off' when being interegated - who didn't shoot him, thinking his name was Italian!
Pretended to be itinerant French workman when making his escape - always complimenting Germans who questioned him on the excellence of their French.
Wonderful character - one can understand why he was a rarity in actually making it back to England, when most would have given up.
