    Sebastian and Andrew Schwartz of 3 White's Row reference the family name in their will. Intriguingly, Andrew Schwartz appears to have incremently disinherited Frederic Gehringer​ (the senior) in a series of amendments to his will.

    Wow, what an exceptional post!

    There's a lot to digest, but that's a good thing.

    I agree that it is evident that Frederick is slowly outcast from the will over time.

    That is quite revealing

    Another point that I find interesting; is that this proves that the Gehringer family was linked to the Schwartz family.

    It makes me wonder whether there's any significance to that point.

    The supposed witness/ghost of Berner Street; Israel Schwartz springs to mind.

    Can you imagine if he could be definitively linked to this Schwartz family in the data you posted above?

    That would be quite a coincidence

    I will endeavour to add to this thread in due course.

    Fascinating thread
