The Stern family is a Jewish French banking family originally from Frankfurt. It traces back to Samuel Hayum Stern (1760–1819), who in the 1780s became a wine merchant in Frankfurt. His son, Jacob Samuel Heyum Stern, started a banking business, named Jacob S.H. Stern (de), in 1805 in Frankfurt. His sons expand the family venture to Berlin, London, and Paris, of which the latter became most prominent as Bank Stern.[1] and J. Stern & Co.
