    Notes 
    • 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. [2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8]
