COCOZZA PANETTA CAPALDI IN THE UK

Postby maenadpl » 06 Mar 2010, 00:50

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 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.
He married Winifred Roberts 1909 and 1st child, Reuben, was born at 5 Christmas Steps, Bristol. In January 1914 Giovanni's 3rd child, Violetta Coesestis, was christened; her godmother was CARMEL CAPALDI from Montague St. Relative or friend?
1911 Census Giovanni Cocozza wrote he came from Italy, Valle Z....(can't decipher word). Family myth always said he came from Caserta.
Giovanni served in Royal Irish Regt. in WW1, in Ireland, we believe. He died in Bristol in 1925 aged 37, had a horse drawn military funeral.
Any info/advice would be appreciated.

Hello Helen

I have both Capaldi and Cocozza names in my family tree. They are all from San Giuseppe, Picinisco and Vallegrande, Villa Latina. They are two comune and villages in the Val di Comino in the Appenine Mountains 15 minutes drive north east of Cassino.

Check out my web site www.capaldi-clan.com for furrther details of how I discovered my ancestors who emigrated to Edinburgh Scotland circa 1904

Thank you to Stuart, Jamie and Anna
Jamie - we don't know Panetta's first name; am waiting for marriage and death cert of Agostino and Maria Panetta who lived at 10 Harford St. St. James's, Bristol at the time of the 1911 census, with their 1y.o daughter Luisetta. I think these are our relatives as they were living at the same address as our grandfather Giovanni Cocozza and his wife and son Reuben, which would seem sensible if Giovanni and Agostino were half or step brothers.
Looking at 1911 Census under magnification it looks like they were from Valle Grande.

Helen, Sorry i sent wrong post above! Ignor!

I was meant to post:
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!

I have viewed some microfiche's and found Agostino Panetta and Maria were witnesses of the marriage between Giuseppe Velardo and Maria Fionda.
My Capaldi Family were very close to the Fionda Family.
