Jacob was probably born in Spain , fled to Portugal and then to England, along with his wife Rachel. Rachel and Jacob were married before coming to England without benefit of Jewish Rites, so were remarried in 1698 in the Spanish & Portugal Synagogue in London.

Rachel died in 1708 and in 1710 Jacob and his two young sons emigrated to New York City, where Jacob became a wealthy chocolate merchant.

In 1728 Jacob Louzada contributed f4 towards the erection of the new synagogue in New York City. In the same year the community , needing more cemetery land , purchased ³two Lotts of Land leying near the Cripple bush or swamp.² Jacob Lousada contributed to the purchase of this land with a contribution of fourteen shillings.
Jacob was buried 15 Jun. 1729 in the Chatham Square Burial grounds, New York City. His body was later moved on 9 Jun. 1856 to the 21st St. Burial Grounds to accommodate mercantile growth in New York City. Jacob¹s tombstone is inscribed in Hebrew and is translated as follows:

Tombstone of the venerable and honorable Jacob Louzada (may his rest be in glory) who went in peace to his eternal home on 15 of the month of Sivan in the year 5489 (June 12, 1729). May his soul be bound up in the bond of life Tomb of the blissful, the venerable, and honored Jacob Louzada who departed from this life to enjoy eternal glory and perfect rest on the first day of the week which was the 15 of Sivan in the year 5489. May his blessed soul
enjoy glory."

Note:
BIOGRAPHY: The ancestors of the Luzadder family in America once lived in the Iberian Peninsula (Spain & Portugal) where the original family name was OELousada.£ One member was a advisor to King Charles III of Spain. The members of this family were Sephardic Jews (the 1971 best-selling book, THE GRANDEES, #(Stephen Birmingham, THE GRANDEES (New York, Harper & Row, 1971) gives an excellent view of the Sephardim, particularly in America). During the Spanish Inquisition the family likely had three choices: (1) become practicing Catholics, (2) be burned at the stake or suffer some other deadly fate, (3) escape to another country. The Jews who joined the Catholic church were called ?conversosø. Many of these ?conversosø remained secret Jews and were called ?marranosø – literally ?pigsø in Spanish. It is quite likely that Jacob De Louzada, the immigrant ancestor of our Luzadders, was such a secret Jew. Probably different alternatives were chosen by various members of the family. Some went to Portugal, like Jacob and others likely to other places, such as France, Holland, and England. One aristocratic member went to Jamaica where he was a very successful merchant, his success earning him a coat of arms which is very similar to the Duc de Losada of Spain. (This information was contained in a 28 Jan 1972 letter to James L. Luzadder, Gaston, IN from Robert W. Luzadder, Assistant Wire Editor of the News-Sentinel, Ft. Wayne, IN.)
BIOGRAPHY: Jacob was probably born in Spain , fled to Portugal and then to England, along with his wife Rachel. Rachel and Jacob were married before coming to England without benefit of Jewish Rites, so were remarried in 1698 in the Spanish & Portugal Synagogue in London.
