    • Name Nahum (Nathan) 
      Gender Male 
      Buried
      • A fragment of a stone found in London Wall face down in 1753 and reported in Gentleman's Magazine. Estimated at the time to have been placed in the wall 538 years earlier based on Stow's reference to the Barons coming to London, destroying the homes of Jewish people and then using them to rebuild the walls of the city. Its not unreasonable to suppose that the same was done with tombstones taken from the Jews Garden Cemetery.

        The fragment is said to commemorate Nahum (Nathan or Nathaniel). The original sketch is now at the British Library.
