Capaldi To UK - Searching what part of Italy They Were From!

Postby jamiecapaldi » 02 Feb 2010, 18:42

During the mid 1880’s, Giuseppe and Giovanni Capaldi were Musicians, 2 brothers travelling to UK with their wifes and some children. They stayed at 9 and 12 Montague Street, st. James, (now known as lower Kingsdown between Broadmead and Stokes Croft) Bristol.
Giovanni and his Family stayed at Montague Street and expanded his Family. Giovanni then went on to become a Fruit Seller and as his sons grew older so did they.
Giuseppe continued as a travelling Musician along with his expanding Family.
During the early 1890’s they returned to Italy, then back to Bristol in the late 1890’s.
Being a travelling Musician they then went on to Edinburgh in the early 1900’s (stayed at 50 Bread Street, sharing with other Italians and scots and had a job in a Resteraunt) and then by 1902 were in Dublin, Ireland.
They then bounced back and forth from Bristol to Dublin for around 20 years, before settling in Bristol.

The names of the Families are below:


FATHER: Giuseppe Capaldi
MOTHER: Marianna Giuseppa Tedesco
SON: Giovanni Capaldi
SON: Giovanni Capaldi
SON: Alessandro Capaldi
SON: Vincenzo Capaldi
SON: Giovanni Carmino Capaldi
SON: Michele Frederick Capaldi
SON: Antonio Capaldi
DAUGHTER: Michelina Capaldi
DAUGHTER: Maria Capaldi


FATHER: Giovanni Capaldi
MOTHER: Pasquarosa Salari
SON: Carlo Capaldi
SON: Antonio Capaldi
SON: Pasquale Capaldi
SON: Francisco Capaldi
DAUGHTER: Maria Anna Capaldi
DAUGHTER: Atonia Capaldi
DAUGHTER: Carmella Capaldi
DAUGHTER: Maria Capaldi
DAUGHTER: Angelina Capaldi
DAUGHTER: Filomena Capaldi


Any information that anybody has, would be very usefull as I am out of options to get any further.

I Look forward to any replies!

Go to this site ---
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/eidb/ellisgold.html
and input Capaldi in the last name box (nothing else) and then the search button. A list of Capaldi's who came to the US will appear. It shows many of the villages from which they emigrated. There are 233 names, and a number of them came to the US from Glasgow, Manchester, Eversham, and Blackpool. Looking at the original manifests on the site for those who show England and Scotland as their last residence may give you some hints. Hope it helps.

Ellis Island, good site! I know at least 2 of Giuseppes sons went to America.:
Alessandro, a model at the time went in 1923 with cousin Pasquale to Detroit, and stayed directly next door to Rafaelle and Giovanella Capaldi(used to have the site 'capaldifamily.com').
He returned in 1925 and died in Liverpool, but don't know anymore.

Vincenzo, married Teresa Capaldi in Evesham, who i am certain was the singer, Jim Capaldi's Blood Auntie.
Travelled with Family and settled in New Castle, Pennsylvania.

Some records of Capaldi's show Cassino as a residence or birth, but can also be for surrounding areas. Just need to find out exact.
Thanks!

COCOZZA PANETTA CAPALDI
our grandfather, Giovanni (John) COCOZZA came to UK after 1901 and before 1911 census, with his half or step brother with surname PANETTA. They lived in Bristol, mainly in the Italian quarter of St. James's, Montague St/Harford St. etc.. He sold bananas from a cart and was a street musician playing the penny whistle.
January 1914 Giovanni's 3rd child, Violetta Coelestis, was christened; her godmother was CARMELA CAPALDI from Montague St. then aged 18. Relative or friend?
1911 Census Giovanni COCOZZA wrote he came from Italy, Valle Z....(can't decipher).
Also, in 1901 Census Carmela Capaldi is listed as "Saramella" Capaldi. I have seen original extract and it is Caramella with a tick through the C, she was then 5 years.
If you come across any of the above names in your travels, please let me know. I will do likewise.
regards and good luck, helen lewis, (newbie) maenadpl

Carmella married a Di Placido and moved to Detroit, USA.
Finding this out has also led me to find out her Mother, Pasquarosa had returned to Cassino, Italy.
If anybody has any info on what happened to Giovanni (john), Pasquarosa's husband, please leave info!
