Jews began to settle in England shortly after the Norman Conquest in 1066 and lived in many communities throughout the kingdom, until expelled by King Edward I in 1290It was to be over 350 years before they would be permitted to return.

Listed are the towns in England and Wales in which Jews had settled prior to their expulsion.  A small number of  Jews were also known to have settled in Ireland, but there is no record of any Jews in Scotland during this period.


Medieval Jewish communities in England and Wales have been researched and compiled for JCR-UK by
