Not sure if Moses fits in anywhere but here he is anyway.
Gives an insight into the surname origins.
I believe so, that does look like Lewis and Mary.
Thanks for all this information! As the only foreign branch on my tree it is interesting to investigate. I also had problems with my 3x great-grandmother, Rosetta Franks. She married Morris Lipman in 1844. Not sure where, and no idea as to her parents.
Rosetta Franks married Morris Lipman December qtr 1844
London City Volume 2 page 195
I do not see the entry on either FMP or Ancestry, so it could be you will need to buy the marriage cert from the GRO to find out who her father was.
The National Archives have a couple of wills which may relate to your family in Aldgate and may possibly even mention Lewis's father.

Holy cow!!!! I didn't realize this thread was there when I answered on the other one!!! Amazing research, folks....which clarifies and adds to a couple of my suppositions on the origin of the name...I am sure that it was more likely Lipschitz or similar! Also on the occupations. Milliners, tailors, shoe repair, etc.
Now I wonder if my London Lipman's weren't distantly related cuz I couldn't find any on the LDS site that fit in Scotland birth wise.
I had a look in the record books and although the marriage is there Rosetta doesn't have a fathers name although address given was 2 Love Court and there is an Esther Franks at 1 Love court with a father Benjamin Franks.
Morris's father is down as Eliezer
in 1810 a Benjamin Franks married a Pricilla Abrahams a possible
Very interesting. So Morris wasn't the son of Lewis despite living with him in 1841?
That's the thing with the 1841 census - relationships are not shown. If nephews or nieces - or even complete strangers/servants who happen to have the same surname - are in the house at the time, it just throws another spanner in the works...
Looking on synogoguescribes.com at others called Eliezer, a number of them, when you look at their hebrew forename, have it as Lipman Eliezer. There has been mention of a Lipman Lipman somewhere.
A number of trees on Ancestry have Lewis Eliezer Lipman as the dad
Damn. I might just have to buy Morris' 1844 marriage certificate then.
Separate names with a comma.
