They were joined in 1071 by a community of French Jews. Though they suffered discrimination, the English Jews enjoyed a measure of toleration and enjoyed royal protection. Their situation changed drastically during the reign of Edward I. After a period of intense persecution they were banished in 1290. They were not allowed to return until the time of the Commonwealth and Restoration, when they were gradually readmitted. Henriques discusses the statutes and cases relating to this period and reconstructs this complex chapter in English history.
