The Nass Leidesdorfs -
In the Beginning

Originating in Nassau, Germany, the Leidesdorf family split to Vienna, Austria, Preßburg, Austria (Bratislava, Slovakia today) and later to the Netherlands and then to Denmark. This may have been due to the fact that portions of Austria-Hungary only allowed the first son to be married and therefore others moved away (Moravia 1726).
 
Vienna descendants, Samuel Perez (Sanwel) and Loeb Isak Leidesdorf received letters of protection from Maria Theresa in 1758 allowing their families to be among the Jews allowed to live within the city limits. In 1762, the Court Treasury in Vienna declared that outside of the Arnstein, Eskeles, and Leidesdorfer families, there were only impoverished Jews. In the same year, the Empress found herself compelled to grant them the right to trade in home products, and to set up factories with the proviso that only Christians might be hired.
 
Preßburg descendant Menachem Mendel became President of the Jewish Community of Preßburg, Austria and was a partisan of Jacob Emden in the Emden-Eybeschuetz conflict.
