What was the first Protestant family to permanently live in Jerusalem?
John (or Hans) Nicolayson. Originally a Lutheran employed by the venerable Church Missionary Society (CMS), was later ordained by the Anglicans and was the driving force behind the strenuous effort (the Arabic word jihad comes to mind!) it took to get the Ottomans to allow for the construction of what is now Christ Church.
The original CMS effort was actually directed at Jews, at least there in Jerusalem.
