LET us have a short peep at some of the early writers on Anglo-Israel. Counsellor Le Loyer, a French magistrate, 1590, issued a large volume, "The Lost Ten Tribes Found". Le Loyer says: "He has found the Israelites, and that today they form the English people." This account appeared in the Petit Parisien of June 24, 1913.
Following from the above Frenchman, we have Rabbi Maimonides, 1131; John Sadler, M.A.and M.P., 1609. In 1671 a pamphlet was issued in Nether Dutch, setting forth that the English people are Israel.
In 1672 this pamphlet was published in English. Dean Abbadie wrote on the subject in 1723. He was a renowned D.D.
Lieutenant Richard Brothers wrote in 1792 and in 1793. In 1795 the work was published, giving the then positions d the tribes.
John Perrot wrote in 1796; Nathaniel Brassey Halket, M.P., in 1796; John Finlayson in 1797; Hamilton in 1806; Dr.Thomas Moore, in poem, in 1807; Ralph Wedgewood in 1813; Rev.John Hartley Freer in 1815; Rev. B. Murphy in 1816; Revd Prebendary Waddilove, M.A.,in 1820; Dr.Pinnock in 1822.
This list could be added to until many scores of names might be placed before the reader.
