Hi Everyone
Just joined hoping to find info abt my ancestors who ive been told were from Italy but ended up in Ireland abt 1746ish. Not sure abt the correct surname as my Grandad was Castello but changed to Costello like 90% of the family. It has been stories past down that they were from Italy and in the 1851 census when they came over from Ire to Warwickshire they were down as Cosletta? Anyone got any ideas as i don't know where to start.
Regards Jo. :D

There are10 CoslettO listed in the 1851,1861,1891 and 1901 British census while there are16 Cosletto listed for the USA census for the 1851,1852 and on up. The first group is listed in the which is free for name checks but a paying website and do not reflect Italy and the for the USA census for those born in the 1850's

There is no record for the surname COSLETTO or COSLETTA in the Italian surname dictionary as well as the surname distribution for the current listings in Italy. =Peter=
