Stern family

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

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 expanded the family venture to Berlin, London and Paris, of which the latter became most prominent as Bank Stern[1] and later as J. Stern & Co.
