Nassau William Senior held the first chair of political economy at Oxford University (1825-30, 1847-52) and was a Master in Chancery from 1836-53. The Senior family were originally Spanish Jews (Sephardim), most of whom converted to Catholicism when the Jews were expelled from Spain in 1492; many converted back again at a later date.
Senior's aesthetic tastes were marked by strict simplicity and repugnance towards all appearances of vain artificiality.''A very clever man, a great talker, good upon all subjects, but best upon all those on which I am below my average depth of ignorance, public affairs, questions of government, the science of political economy, and all its kindred knowledge... Interestingly, Don Abraham's power was such that on one occasion even Torquemada, the Inquistor-General, had to plead with Don Abraham concerning taxes in Segovia and in 1492 Don Abraham successfully sued the Inquisition to recover property.

One source that I have seen says that this family (of The Times) lived at Farley Hill before moving to Bearwood, Sindlesham, Berks.
