Israël Blom was born around 1710, most likely in Stockholm, Sweden. His father may have been named Jacob.

Israël became a brewer and owned a farm with a brewery and distillery at Södermalm in Stockholm.

On 18 May 1735, he married Margareta Forstén (born in 1711 in Helsinki, Finland), the daughter of merchant Gabriel Forstén. [1] They had three children in Katarina Parish:

  • Jacob Gabriel Israelsson Blom (brewer), christened 1735, and died 1768 [2]
  • Anna Elisabet Israelsdotter Blom, christened 30 Jan 1739, and died 1799 [3]
  • Greta Sophia Israelsdotter Blom, christened 21 Oct 1740, and died in childhood [4]

When Israël was buried on 20 Nov 1740, he was given a walled grave in Katarina parish, Stockholm. His Will inventory listed his 38,517 copper coins in cash as well as his farm, brewery and distillery in Södermalm (valued at 15,000 daler coppers). [5] When his wife, Greta, died in 1795 she left a fire-insured property set up with a brewery and distillery, located at the corner of Götgatan and Renfeltsgatan in the Höken neighborhood (valued at 2,222 riksdalers), as well as a stone tomb in Katarina's church.
