Goldschmidt family

Not to be confused with Goldsmid family.

The Goldschmidt family is a family of German Jewish descent, originally from Frankfurt am Main, known for their success in banking. With origins tracing back to the 14th century, most members left Frankfurt after the 1614 Fettmilch uprising, and did not return until the 18th century.[1]

The family was particularly entangled with the Bischoffsheim family of Mainz,[2] leading to the conjointly managed Bischoffsheim, Goldschmidt & Cie bank, which was eventually merged into Banque de Crédit et de Dépôt des Pays-Bas in 1863.[3][4]

The English branch of the family Anglicised their name to Goldsmith, starting with Frank Goldsmith (1878–1967).
