Cafolla Family

Postby CatCox » 04 Aug 2010, 21:19

I'm doing some research on the italian side of my family, my granny was called Iolanda Cafolla and her parents were Carmine Cafolla and Maria Felice Mezza, i am just wondering if anyone else has any further information or has cafolla blood in them?
Some cafolla relatives of mine own a cafe in newtonards, northern ireland at warmpoint and i am really keen to learn more family history
feel free to share any of your information with me! thanks! :D

When were Iolanda and her parents in Ireland?

What was Iolanda's married surname?

Have you checked out the 1911 Ireland census? See http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/s ... renLiving=
Carmine

My hobby is finding things. Having found most of my own, I am happy to help others find theirs. PM me! :)

On this census, "Mary Mezza" aged 6 and her sisters Louise and Lena were born in Belfast while their parents, Dominic and Cevita, were born in Italy.

Could Mary be Maria?

I think Iolanda was born in 1931 and her married surname was Burrows :)
I will check that out now thanks!
I'm not sure because i was on another form related to Maria Mezza, and it fit together, it said her italian parents moved to scotland which is where she was born, i think her father was called lorenzo xD

Hi CatCox, I'm totally new to this. ursala and johnyonthespot may have already answered your query. Maria Felice (Mezza) Cafolla born July 30, 1900 in Ayrshire Scotland. Passed away June 26, 1984 in Belfast. I got this from my cousin Ursala. Maria was your grandmother? Mine TOO. My mother is Rose (Cafolla) Mathews, sister to Yolanda (Burrows?). And I too have just begun my search for Cafolla descendents. Ursala has our Mezza side very well covered.

CatCox, I am most eager to make contact with you. A. because you are family B. I've been busy searching Cafolla relatives of ours. Your grandmother Yolanda (Cafolla) Burrows had/has 6 sisters and 1 brother. My own mother of course, Maria Rosa (Cafolla) Mathews, but wanted to tell you I have just recently made contact with 2 children of Maria Frances (Cafolla) Rehm, and hoping to make contact with her other 2 children shortly. I am hitting roadblock with Cafolla decendants in Ireland, and the UK, you are my first direct link there. We should compare notes.

I believe Iolanda's maiden name was Marrocca?

Hi Jamie

Which Iolanda are you referring to? Is it the one referenced above? If so, then she was a Cafolla (parents Carmine Cafolla/Maria Felice Mezza) who married a Burrows.

The surname you may be thinking of though is Magliocco - lots of connections between the Cafollas, Mezzas and Maglioccos!

And, sorry, not sure who Peter Cafolla in Dublin was, but there will be a connection somewhere. Paul Mathews (posted above) is doing good work linking all the cafollas in Ireland and may be able to shed some light.

I need help searching out a GreatAuntie of mine and her decendants (if any) please. Maria Giuseppa Cafolla bn Jan 7,1891 (presumed in Cassalattico Italy). I've all 4 of her siblings well traced and contact with most. I assumed she possibly died in childhood as there is nothing in my notes to show she lived and emigrated to N Ireland as did her 4 siblings (my grandfather being one of the, Carmine Cafolla). New hints of info, uncooberated, has her marrying a Macari and moving to Scotland. "Giussepina" a possible name as well.
