 Jewish Population in England
The report of the Registrar-General shows that, during the year 1846, in every 100,000 of the population, (50,000 of each sex,) 1713 persons married; hence the ratio of marriages to the population was 1.713/2 per cent.
These estimates of the Jewish population refer only to the following counties, in which the 224 marriages in 1846 were registered, there not having been any Jewish marriages registered in Wales within that year, and the Registrat-General not acting for Scotland, Ireland, and the Channel Islands.
But as the immigration of foreign Jews into England is supposed to consist principally of males, the uniformity of the ratio of the population generallyto the number of marriages is probably maintained.
