Solomon Schiller (1820-1890) was a Hungarian rabbi and academic who became the first Jewish reader in Talmudic and Rabbinic Literature at the University of Cambridge. He was the first Jew at either Oxford or Cambridge to be placed on the Electoral Roll. He married Georgiana Eleanor Herbert who converted to Judaism and took the name Sarah. Their eldest child, Alfred Solomon (born 1863) started as an academic but disappeared and probably died during WWI as a war correspondent.
