    Notes:
    Opened in 1657, closed 1735. See The Old and New Spanish and Portuguese Cemeteries

    "When they came to this land the Jew had no rights or privileges whatsoever, but they caused it to be made clear that, whatever their religion, a community of men who were industriuos, intelligent, cultered, endowed with a high sense of honour and withal loyal, were fit for admission to any community and could not helo but forward its development and progress.

    They left us, who are their heirs, a past of which any community might well feel proud, and no sacrifice on our part should ever be refused, if it will in any way serve to safeguard and maintain that congregational existence, for which such men planned and toiled, and which they thought worthy of the best and utmost that was in them."
    Rev D Bueno de Mesquita July 8 1923 (Extract)
