According to the Jewish Communities and Record Site, Jews were brought into England after the Norman Conquest of 1066:
Jews began to settle in England shortly after the Norman Conquest in 1066, the first group brought over from Rouen by William the Conqueror. They escaped the massacres that Continental European Jewry witnessed during the period of the first and second crusades and, despite occasional manifestations of anti-Jewish sentiment (including the prototype of the ritual murder accusation) and the imposition of periodic fines and special levies, initially their numbers and prosperity increased under the protection of the king. The era of prosperity and relative calm ended in 1189, on the death of King Henry II and the coronation of his son, King Richard I, when English Jewry became subject to outbreaks of extreme violence and increasingly more repression measures, stimulated by the third crusade, culminating in the expulsion of the impoverished Jews by King Edward I in 1290, at which time they may have numbered as many as 16,000 souls. It was to be over 350 years before they would be permitted to return.
According to another site, Jewish Bankers financed Wiliam the Conqueror. I would have to agree and will seek to find more solid evidence of this. The concern of kings over allowing jews to come into England while at the same time, murdering off Irish and native Celts in Scottland and England makes no sense, unless of course those kings were Jewish or were paid off by jews.
There is no evidence of Jews residing in England before the Norman Conquest. William the Conqueror was financed by Jews expelled from Spain, and having secured the benevolent neutrality of Holy Roman emperor Henry IV and with solemn approval by Pope Alexander II, he invaded England in 1066 (Encyclopedia Britannica, Vol # 23, p. 609). He brought 2,600 Jews into England with him from Rouen (William of Malmesbury: Gesta Regum Anglorum, The History of the English Kings, p. 500). They were at first treated with special favour and allowed to amass considerable wealth, "They brought to England their own form of commerce and a system of rules to facilitate and govern it . . ." (Footnote 11: H.C. Richardson, The English Jewry Under Angevin Kings (1960) p. 94). They established the Exchequer and subsequently converted into a class of "royal usurers" so abhorrent to the English that in 1290 Edward I expelled them all, over 16,000 Jews, principally owing to the problem of usury. (See the trilogy of historian Sir Arthur Bryant, JCR-UK - Jewish Communities of the U.K., and jewishencyclopedia.com).
Further evidence indicates travel to the Americas before Columbus, by Templars, as symbols were carved in stone throughout the Americas, such as the hooked X, that indicate a templar journey during the 1300s. It was well known that the Irish were travelling to America for thousands of years as well as the Vikings. It is also now known that Solutrean artifacts have been found along the East coast of America that date back to over 15,000 years which means native Celtic people had lived in the Americas over 15,000 years ago. It is time to take a critical look at who was/is behind the slave trade and how it connects with the exterminations of the Irish, native Scottish and British, and Native Americans. It is also time to take a critical look at what religions promote slavery and why these religions are allowed in countries that have had laws enacted against slavery or in the case of America had a civil war over slavery. All of these religions that promote slavery in America are illegal and violate 13th amendment rights. So why are they tolerated?
