NAVARRO, Moses[1, 2]

Male 1617 -

Personal Information    |    Sources    |    All    |    PDF

  • Name NAVARRO, Moses 
    Born 1617 
    Gender Male 
    • 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.
    • Someone has written "1607" in the margins of "Marriage Registrations of Abraham's sons" [S64]. However, the latter source clearly implies that Moses was born in 1617. But is this consistent with Moses being a naval cadet in 1630?
