THE MONTEFIORE FAMILY
THE Rothschilds were related by marriage to the Sephardic Jewish family of Montefiore as follows:—
Abraham Montefiore, brother of Sir Moses, married Jeanette, daughter of the senior Amschel Mayer Rothschild in 1815.
Nathan Mayer Rothschild, of London, Amschel’s son, married the sister-in-law of Sir Moses Montefiore in 1806.
Abraham Montefiore’s daughter, Louisa, married Sir Anthony Rothschild, Bart., in 1840.
The Montefiores themselves linked up with the big financial Jews Goldsmid by the marriage in 1850 of Abraham Montefiore’s son, Nathaniel, to the daughter of Sir I. L. Goldsmid, Bart.
Sir Moses Montefiore, Bart. (1784-1885), after 1812 until his death “lived in New Court, close to his friend Rothschild; and the brothers Montefiore, as the brokers of that financial genius, became wealthy men.” Thus says the Jewish Encyclopædia (B, Vol. VIII., p. 668), so there can hardly be any argument that Sir Moses Montefiore depended on and represented the Rothschild interest.
Thus, to 1824, together with Rothschild, he helped to found the Alliance Insurance Company as a sort of Jew-controlled rival to Lloyds.
We may take it that the rivalry between the Goldsmid firm and that of the Rothschilds was ended by the Montefiore-Goldsmid marriage mentioned above.
It is notable that Sir Moses Montefiore’s son Leonard was a very intimate friend of Lord Milner and Arnold Toynbee.
It was Sir Moses Montefiore who was sent out to Egypt and Constantinople after the Jewish Ritual Murders at Rhodes and Damascus (U, p.p. 23 seq.) to bribe the Khedive and the Sultan into hushing up this Jewish practice, after the failure of the Austrian House of Rothschild to achieve this object through the Austrian Consulates, Austria being in need of loans from the House. Referring to the Rhodes murder, the Jewish Encyclopædia states: “owing to the efforts of Count Camondo, Cremieux and Montefiore, a firman was obtained from the Sultan which declared all accusations of ritual murder null and void.” The cost of this firman is not stated, but the reader will note with interest that the Paris Rothschild agent Cremieux reinforced the endeavours of Montefiore, their London broker. Camondo was banker to the Ottoman Government, and a Jew.
Writing of the Damascus case, the converted Rabbi Chevalier P. L. B. Drach states in his Harmony between the Church and the Synagogue (1844, Paris, p. 79) “Money played a great role in this business.”
Another member of the Montefiore expedition was Salomon Munk, who had previously been teacher to the Paris Rothschild family, his pupils being Alphonse and Gustav.
The results of these bare-faced briberies have been completely misrepresented in the Jew-controlled “British” Press. Thus, the Damascus prisoners were released but not exonerated, whilst the Sultan’s firman was the merest sophistry; but for further details see my other book (reference U).
It is particularly interesting that Pope Pius IX. refused to give an audience to Sir Moses Montefiore on his way back from this exploit, although the Jew persisted in his efforts to see His Holiness with typical shameless effrontery.
The Montefiores are the Jewish Kings of Australia: the first to go there was Jacob (1801-95) who arrived in South Australia in 1843 as agent for the Rothschilds (B, Vol. VIII., p. 666) where his reception by the Governor and the people is described as “enthusiastic.”
THE WORMS FAMILY
Baron Solomon Benedict de Worms, father of Lord Pirbright, lived in Nathan Rothschild’s house in London as a boy; Nathan’s sister was the boy’s mother.
The estates of the Worms family in Ceylon were known as the Rothschild estates. Baron Pirbright, a “Conservative” politician, was more than once Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Trade, and from 1888 to 1892 became Under-Secretary for the Colonies.
As stated on p. 59, the Samuel family was financed by the Rothschilds from the nineties of the last century, when the first Viscount Bearsted began to interest himself in the sea-transport of oil.
THE SASSOON FAMILY
This family of Baghdad Jews is related by marriage to the Rothschilds. It represents the Rothschild power in India and China.
Sir P. A. Sassoon, Bart., married the daughter of Baron Gustave de Rothschild in 1887, and had two children, Sir Philip Sassoon and the Marchioness of Cholmondeley. Lady Sassoon was a member of the “Souls,” the notorious gang of which Balfour and Margot Tennant were members.
Leopold Rothschild married a Perugia, sister of Mrs. Arthur Sassoon.
As stated elsewhere, Sir Philip Sassoon was the bosom friend of the war-mongering politician Anthony Eden. Sir Philip was Field-Marshal Haig’s Private Secretary throughout the Great War; Private Secretary to Lloyd George at the Peace Conference; and was “British” representative at the League of Nations discussion in 1933 as to the possibilities of forming an International Air-Force. He was a constant associate of the Duke of Windsor when the latter was Prince of Wales.
King Edward VII. became familiar with the Sassoon family, setting the bad example to his grandson. He was a wedding-guest at the Rothschild-Sassoon marriage.
THE FRANKLIN FAMILY
This family of banking Jews has long had relations with the Rothschilds. Jacob Franklin (1809-1877) was Secretary to the North of France Railway and other French railways and became auditor of the chief Brazilian railways. All these concerns were under Rothschild control. His nephew, Frederic Samuel Franklin had two daughters who married Sassoons.
