I remember being told by my father that öur side"of the Einhorns split into 3 names: Elian, Elinor and Eldon. I also recall that there was an Alex Eldon living in London and that he had a daughter called Rita that was married and lived a long time in Addis Ababa (Ethiopia).

From what I can dig up, it seems that Alexander and Charlotte Eldon, coming from Romania, established themselves in London and that their daughter, Rita Pankhurst (nee Eldon) got married to Professor Richard Pankhurst.

Here is a brief selective CV of Rita

Professor Pankhurst is the son of Sylvia Pankhurst, a noted suffragette and anti-fascist

I have no idea however where all this goes on the tree. Any ideas?

and I assume this is also related to him, dated 1929?

have received this from Rita Pankurst:
Alexander (dru?) and Charlotte, maiden name Wachtel, were my parents. We did emigrate to Britain in 1938 and changed our name in 1947. I don't remember my father mentioning any other Einhorn except someone? who became a film star in Hollywood. We lived in Iasi, but my father's parents, Ida and Moritz Einhorn, lived in Bucharest. I moved to Ethiopia in 1956 and married Richard Pankhurst in 1957. Alula is our son and Helen our daughter.
