Jewish expulsion and resettlement

In 1290 Edward I expelled Jews from England and for centuries, apart from those that practised their religion in secret, there were no Jews in England. In 1657, following a petition to Cromwell and a legal test case, it again became acceptable for Jews to live in England.
