D. Diego (Moses) Lópes Pereira d'Aguilar. Baron of the Holy Roman Empire (cr.1726). Born Portugal 1699. Died London 10 August 1759. Buried Portuguese Jews Burial Ground, Mile End. He was a Marrano financier, born in Lisbon, Portugal, where his father held the tobacco monopoly.   He himself farmed the tobacco revenue in Portugal before establishing branches of his banking house in London and Amsterdam.   After the War of the Spanish Succession, in 1722 Diego Lopes Pereira followed Charles VI to London, where he established a firm in the City called Pereira and Lima.   It was one of the Jewish firms which imported gold from Portugal.   (Other Jewish merchants who did so included Francis Salvador and Moses Mendes da Costa.)   The firm continued to prosper when in 1736 he went to Vienna, to make proposals to the then Empress to farm the tobacco and snuff duties, in which he was very successful, so much so that the Empress appointed him her cashier.   Immediately on his arrival, he reverted to Judaism (i.e. probably he was circumcised;  he probably practised Judaism privately already), adopting the name of Moses and championing other Jews whenever persecution threatened.   To this day they hold an annual service in his honour in the Sephardi synagogue in Vienna.   In 1726 the emperor created him Baron D’Aguilar, Maria Theresa made him a Privy Councillor, and he was responsible for building the imperial palace at Schönbrunn.   Ultimately, the Spanish government requested the extradition of ‘this wealthy renegade’ for trial by the Holy Office.   In order to avoid being returned to Portugal to face the Inquisition, in 1757 he moved, with his fourteen children, together with his retinue of servants and slaves, to London, where he was active in the Sephardi community.   Presumably the family originally came from Aguilar De Campóo, a fortress town in Castile, in the District of Palencia, northern Spain, before the Jews were expelled from Spain in 1492.   Matriculated his arms: Gules an eagle or beneath a plate, on a chief argent three hillocks vert on each a pear or slipped vert [Rietstap]. Married 1722 Donna Simha da Fonseca (died 1755).

e. Hannah d'Aguilar. Born 1734. Died 25 January 1763.
f. Esther d'Aguilar. Born 1739. Died 30 September 1791. Married Dr Isaac Henriques Sequeira (originally Francisco Corna da Silva Sequira). born Lisbon 1738
g. Ephraim Lópes Pereira d'Aguilar, 2nd Baron d'Aguilar (born Vienna 1739, died intestate Shaftesbury Place, London 16th March 1802). Eccentric and miser.  Lost his suit to be executor of his 2nd wife. He  inherited his father's vast fortune.   At the age of eighteen, in 1757 he was naturalised British and married his first wife, with whom he lived in great style in Broad Street Buildings, in a house built by his father-in-law.   He kept an elegant equipage, consisting of carriages and 24 servants.    He held various positions in the Sephardi Community, and served as treasurer of the Portuguese Synagogue.   In 1765 he was elected warden, but declined to serve, and refused, on technical grounds, to pay the fine.   He was given eight days to accept or to submit to the penalty.   He must have submitted, because in 1767, he married the very accomplished and also rich widow of Benjamin Mendes Da Costa, a respectable merchant, which he would not have been able to do had he been lying under the ban.  He lost a large estate of about 15,000 acres, and an elegant mansion, in America, as a result of the Revolution, which, together with domestic disagreements, caused him to alter his life-style, renounce the character of a gentleman, and become ‘rude, slovenly and careless of his person and conduct, totally withdrawing himself from his family connections, and the gay world.   He latterly affected the appearance of poverty, though notwithstanding his losses, ... he still possessed much more than a competency, having considerable property, consisting of houses, land, merchandise, goods, jewels, diamonds ...’   He gave up his mansion in Broad Street as well as his country houses at Bethnal Green, Twickenham and Sydenham.    At this point the couple separated, and he became notorious as the miserly proprietor of ‘Starvation Farm’ at Islington, because he refused to feed his livestock, on the principle that they had to learn who was boss.   He also had the reputation for scattering wild oats all over the place, but then he brought up the resulting off­spring as his own children, although he would not see his two legitimate daughters, whom he declared ‘too fine’ to fit into his company.   In 1770 he was again elected to office in the synagogue, and for some years thereafter remained a member of the synagogue.   He died at Shaftesbury Place, of an inflammation in his bowels, having been ill for 17 days, and is buried in the cemetery of Bevis Marks.   It was supposed that he died for want of proper care and treatment, because, notwithstanding the severity of the weather, and the danger he was in, he would not allow a fire in his house.   The name d’Aguilar is a very famous Sephardi name;  there were four eminent Rabbonim in Amsterdam of this name.   He married first 8th December 1756, Sarah (Simha) Mendes da Costa (born c.1742, died 5 May 1763), daughter of the late Moses Mendes da Costa [son of Jacob Mendes da Costa], died 1756, and Rebecca née Salvador, m 1741 (dau of Francis Salvador [son of Joseph] who md Rachel da Costa [dau of Moses]), When she married, at the age of fifteen, she brought with her a substantial dowry, variously recorded as £30,000 (Gentleman’s Magazine) or £150,000 (James Picciotto, writing in the 1870s), her father having died the previous year.   She died at the age of only 21.

1. Georgina Isabella d'Aguilar, Born c.1758. Married first 13th May 1782 Vice Admiral Keith Stewart of Glasserton, MP (born 1739. died 5th May 1795). Georgina married second 16 February 1797 Lt-Col Richard Fitzgerald, 2nd Life Guards (born 1774 kia Waterloo 1815). He seems to have joined the Army in 1795 (i.e. at the age of 20 or 21), so his opportunities for previous marriages would seem to be rather limited. (He appears from the London Gazette to have joined Colonel Podmore's Regiment as an Ensign in 1795, transferred to the 34th (Cumberland) Regiment of Foot (which had earlier fought in the American Revolutionary War) later that year, been promoted to Lieutenant in 1796, and purchased a Captaincy in the 68th (Durham) Regiment of Foot in 1797. At some point, whilst still a Captain, he seems to have transferred into the 2nd Life Guards, but I can't work out when. His promotion to Major was a brevet promotion in 1812, and his Lieutenant-Colonelcy may well have been the same. He died at Waterloo, killed by a cannonball whilst leading his regiment from the front in pursuit of the fleeing enemy. He was apparently the only officer of that regiment to be killed in the battle.)
