Alfred Ezra was born in India in 1872, the son of Elias David Ezra, his mother being a member of the Sassoon family. He was privately educated in Calcutta, and from the beginning showed a keen interest in birds, which he started collecting when still a child. H e came to Europe in 1912 in an unusual way, travelling overland through the Pamirs and Turkestan, Hunting rare animals on the march. Ever since he had lived in England, but he kept a close connection with India, where he returned repeatedly. His elder brother, Sir David Ezra, remained there until his death a few years ago, and kept in Calcutta a large private zoo.

Alfred Ezra served on the R.O.U. Committee 1923-1926, was the President of the Avicultural Society since 1926, and was a member of Council of the London Zoological Society since 1915.
