Moses married ‘our’ Emily Victor Kahn, a great-aunt of the Kahn clan, in the first quarter of 1889.
His grandparents Israel and Yetta (nee Nelson) Samuels were born in Poland in 1801 and 1808 respectively – and his parents were Jacob (an auctioneer) and Amelia (nee Marks) Samuels – born in Poland in 1827 and 1825 respectively.
Moses Marks Samuels was born in Liverpool in 1853, so the family would have arrived in the UK about the same time as the Kahns. His siblings included Nathan (1849-1927) who married Sarah Vineburg Abrahams (1867-1906); Anna Louise (born in 1850) and Esther (born in 1856).
By 1881, the Samuels family moved to 19 Kinmel Street, Rhuddlan, Flint in north Wales (now part of Rhyl). The census of that year lists Jacob Samuels (age 58), Amelia Samuels (age 56), Nathan Samuels (age 28) – a jeweller, Moses (age 24 also a jeweller) and Esther (age 19).
Soon after they married in 1889, Moses and Emily moved to Dublin until about 1896 when the relocated to Rhyl. While in Dublin, they had four children: Madeline (1890); Pauline (1891); Edward (1893); Bertha (1894). Having moved to Rhyl, they produced three more: Hilda Diana (1897); Victor (1904) and Lena (1896 – 1897).
Although Moses started a career as a jeweller, by 1901 he was an optician in Rhyl. By 1911, the family had moved to Fulham in London where he continued to work as an optician. Debatably, his greatest claim to fame was as the father of the famous music hall act, Beatie & Babs (Bertha and Hilda Samuels).
He died in Brentford in the 4th quarter of 1937.
