Fusco/Arpino/D'Agostino/Cascarino families of Edinburgh

Postby Scottclair625 » 15 Apr 2009, 20:20

I'm searching information on my mathernal grandmother's family, the Fuscos. My great-great-grandfather was Benedetto Fusco (b. 1849, Italy) (F. Pasquale Fusco, M. Celesta D'Agostino) and his wife was Michelangela Arpino (b. 1858, Italy) (F. Benedetto Arpino, M. Benedetta Cascarino).

I know that they had 13 surviving children:

Maria (Mary) (b. 1879) (m. Joseph Gargaro)
Lucia (Lucy) (b. 1880) (m. Joseph Caira)
Andrea (Andrew) (b. 1881)
Giovanna (b. 1883)
Michael (b. 1885)
Giuseppe (b. 1888)
Antonio (Tony) (b. 1890) (m. Mary Anne Weir)
Salvatore (Sammy) (b. 1893) (m. Wilhelmina Morrison)
Louisa (Louise) (b. 1894) (d. 1972) (m. John Bird)
Pasquale (Paddy) (b. 1895) (m. Susan Bird)
Antonia (Netta) (b. 1898) (m. Tom Watt)
Razio (Richard) (b. 1901) (m. Margaret Docherty)
Giacinto (George) (b. 1901)

As you can see I know all their years of birth and some of their spouses, but I really don't know beyond that. I'd love to know if many of them married off and had children and when they died.

I know that the first 5 were born in Italy and the rest were born in the Bradford area and in Edinburgh where the family settled around the turn of the century.

Also, I know that Michael emmigrated to the USA and worked as a policeman in New York, and I'd also be interested to know if my great-great-grandparents had any brothers or sisters back in Italy, so I can trace back further. I believe my great-great-grandfather (Benedetto Fusco) was from the Picinisco area, or Villa Latina, and that my great-great-grandmother (Michelangela Arpino) was from Sant'Elia (at least that's where she left from to come to the UK).

I don't even know when my own great-grandfather (Salvatore) died, so if anyone is able to give any help whatsoer on any of these four families or relations in Edinburgh or in Italy it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Scott

The Fusco and D'Agostino names are from Casalattico (Frosinone) and there are families from this area also living in Northern Ireland who emigrated in the late 1800s - many spent time in Scotland before travelling across the Irish Sea, my own included. You can get the LDS records for Casalattico and see if they help pin down where Benedetto was born/married.

I search regularly in Picinisco, Villa latina and Sant'Elia. There are photos on my website of all these towns. I will keep a look out for Benedetto next time I go there.

Hi Scott
I have films on extended loan from the Family History Centre for Sant'Elia and I have found many of the surnames you are searching for. There are two Sant'Elias in Frosinone the one I have the films for is Sant;Elia Fiumerapido.
I'll have a look for you the next time I'm there.
Did you know there are some Caira's who live in Fife area of Scotland?
I'm sending you a p.m.

Scott,

Have you tried the http://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk ?

If Salvatore died in Scotland they will have it on record. If you live in Edinburgh or nearby, you have a choice to either search on line which is costly if you are making errors or go to their building at the east end of Princes Street. Pay for a day pass and you can search all their records. They also give you taster sessions to explain how to search the records.

I explain on the web site www.capaldi-clan.com how I managed to successfully search for my ancestors from nil information.

Everyone on this forum site is extremely helpful and I have no doubt you will also be succesful in your search.

Please note the surnames in your family also occur in my family tree and my great grandmother Angela Maria Fusco came from Vallegrande in commune of Villa Latina. There was an extremely large contingent of immigrants from Villa Latina, Picinisco & Atina settling in Scotland

A presto

Stuart

Scott have checked scotlandspeople for all the districts in Edinburgh from 1893-2006 (just males) but nothing comes up if I enter the first name Salvatore with Fusco.I know I could have made the starting date much later - and there are fewer entries then
Could he have been know by another name perhaps a type of 'nickname' I know my grandfather's christian name was Giovambattista and on his death record -wait for it- his christian name had become George!
Just putting in Fusco here what comes up in the Edinburgh all districts search
Bonnington 3
Cannongate 8
Dean 3
Duddingston 8
George Square 5
Grange 3
Haymarket 1
Holyrood 8
Leith 1
Morningside 3
Newington 3
Portebello 8
St.Andrews(Edinburgh) 4
St Giles 5
If you can think of another first name and a likely district I could look it up for you.

Scott have I got this correct?
Your GG Grandmother was Michelangela Arpino and was she born in 1858 in Sant'Elia Fiumerapidpo?
On Tuesday I checked a birth film for Sant'Elia Fiumerapido for Michelangela Arpino but I didnt have time to check all the film I'll post what I found just in case it may link up with other information you have. I'll check some more next time I'm back at the FHC
Surnames of the children born and the fathers names are all Arpino

First mumber will be year and date of birth, 2nd no will be index number I'll just put F for father and M for mother if I have their age when the child was born I'll print that next to their name and if I have the name of the child's paternal grandfather I'll just put G if I have 'fu' next to it it means he was dead when the child was born - you probably know all this already but just in case!

12/8/1855-111-Francesco-F.Domenicantonio-29 M.Felicia Pacitto 29
G.Mariantonio

22/12/1855-12-Marianna-Carmine-42 M.Rosa Pirolli-36 G.fu Crezenza

5/4/1859-50-Maria Caterina-F.Tomasso-40 M.AngelMaria Tomolillo 38

16/5/1859-81-Pasquale-F. Domenico M Gaetana Viola (No ages of parents from now on didnt have time to check the actual birth documents)

5/6/1959-105- Antonio F. Mattio M. Antonia Mambro

23/10/1859- 6-Domenico F.Tomasso M. Francesca Clementa

11/1/1860-6-Gabriele F Gaetano-M. Antonia Fragnoli

29/1/1860-17- Caterina F. Casimiro M Lucezia?? Angelosanto

17/5/1860-77-Angela F Guiseppe M. M. Fusco (could be Maria?)

19/10/1860-129-Antonio F Michelangelo M. Maria Pirolli

20/1/1861-6-Cresenzo F.GuiseppeM. Domenica d'Angelo

3/5/1861-66-Francesco F. Tomasso M. Angela Tomatella?

2/8/1861-98- Giovanni F. Domenico M. Maria Lanni

13/10/1861-125- Angela F. Gennoro? M. Giamandrea? Girantania??

28/11/1861-145- Antonio Mario F. Guiseppe M. Maria Larogatto ??

? means not sure of spelling- difficult to read.

If there is anything here that you want me to check the actual birth document for just let me know, just sorry I didnt find a Micheangela but it maybe on the previous film I'll check to make sure.

Do you know the date and or the month Michelangela was born and could there be a chance she could have been born in a different year ?

Her name was Michaelangela Arpino, and she was born in Sant'Elia in either 1857 or 1858, and she died in Edinburgh in 1952. Her father was Benedetto Arpino (a peasant farmer)and her mother was Benedetta Cascarino.

Scott
I was at the FHC this afternoon but sorry :cry: to say I found no record for Michaelangela Arpino in the birth acts for 1857 or 1858 which makes me wonder if its the other Sant'Elia she was born or perhaps in one of the other small villages near Sant'Elia?
e.g.Today I discovered my GGGrandfather' brother's marriage by accident- On the film I have for Aquafondata (marriage doc.)there are other records on it for two other communes CERVARO (1858-1861) and VITIEUSO (1813-1861) which I hadnt bothered to check before and although he was born in Aquafondata his marriage is recorded in VITIEUSO (the girl he married was born there)
I'm going to try to attach an excel document that I recorded births from Villa Latina 1860/1862 I dont have any other films for Villa Latina. (Sorry it wont let me attach the excel document :cry: )
I'll list what I found today I searched from 1850 -1857 for Sant'Elia Fiumerapido

Sorry this one hasnt come out 100percent but these are all the Fusco births for yrs 1860/65 but I think it will be the film before this one that will probably have Benedetto Fusco's birth act . (I've never had that film.)
If I can help you in any other way just let me know
