BELINFANTE FAMILY:

A Sephardic Jewish family who trace their ancestry to Joseph Cohen Belinfante, a fugitive from Portugal to Turkey in 1526. The family included a number of writers and divines, the most eminent of the latter being Ẓaddiḳ Cohen Belinfante, chief rabbi of Amsterdam toward the end of the eighteenth century. The annexed sketch-pedigree gives the chief members of the family up to the beginning of the nineteenth century.
