James Bonnet (April 1835- 1910/1920?)

Postby JenniferStein » 07 Jun 2010, 00:13

I am looking for any available information about an ancestor of my husband's who sailed from Calais to London aboard the Triton on March 15, 1855. His name is listed as James Bonnet (he later added a 't' to ensure proper pronunciation).
In 1858 he married Anne Hughes (from Wales) and they then travelled to Provo, Utah where the family resided for several generations.

I hope to find his birth name (Gianni? Giovanni?) and the town of birth.

Anyone know of these Piemontese Bonnets?

Thanks!

Jen

also this is interesting:
".. The records of the Italian Mission indicate that between 1850 and 1856, 181 persons of
Vaudois extraction were baptized into the LDS church and 27 infants were blessed. From 1854
to 1860, 54 members (with a small number of unbaptized infants) emigrated from the Valleys
to Utah.
These emigrants comprised individuals bearing the following family names: Bertoch,
Beus, Bonnet, Brodero, Cardon, Chatelain, Gardiol, Gaydou, Gaudin, Justet, Lazald, Malan,
Pons, Rivoire, Rochon, Roman, Rostan, and Stallé.4"

Thank you to the wonderful info on James Bonnet! I thought he was probably from the Pinerolo area, since most Bonnets come from around there. The Maran family travelled with him on the Triton from Calais to London in 1855, so I guess it makes sense they too travelled to Utah.

Again, thanks for the great information!
All the best,

Jen

also this article is more detailed and so interesting:
" Fifty-one Waldensian converts to The
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day
Saints migrated, mostly with the a1d of
the Perpetual Emigration Fund of the
Church, at various dates fran December
1853 to November 1855. Seven more
migrated between June 1856 and April
1866, or a total of fifty-eight persons,

plus additional unbaptized children not
named in the list. The llJurch baptizes
children after they reach the age of
eight years.
The migrants CBIIle fran the branches of
the Church at Angrogna, San Germano
Chisone, Saint-BarthelEllli, and Prarostino
.
They bore the surnames of Bertoch,
Beus (Beux) , Bodrero (frClll the Province
of Cuneo), Bonnet, Cardon, Chatelain
(and OJatelin) , Gardiol, Gaudin, Gaydan
(Gaydou?), Justet, Lazald (from near
Pinasca), Malan, Pons, Rivoir(e),
Rochon, Roman, Rostan and Stalle."

This is my Great Great Great grand father. I know this was posted a few years ago but I would love to know what you found. You can see some cool info about James in this paper written by Diane Stokes.
http://www.dianestokoe.com/waldensians/ ... _intro.pdf

To see all the writings you can just change the "00" in the url to "01"-"05".

Also, though this paper doesn't say it I was told his grand parents were the Malan's.

Please let me know what you found.

Thanks!
