BRAVO, ABRAHAM:

A financier living in London in 1710. He was a descendant of a Spanish-Portuguese family, and one of the earliest Anglo-Jewish poets. Bravo eulogized in English verse the work, "Espejo Fiel de Vidas" (London, 1720), written by his friend Daniel Israel Lopez Laguna, the Spanish-Jewish translator of psalms.

Another Abraham Bravo, undoubtedly a kinsman of the foregoing, lived in Jamaica in 1773. Benjamin and David Bravo, who went from London to Jamaica, were naturalized there in 1740.
