Postby jamiecapaldi » 07 Sep 2010, 14:32

I think in 1911 England cencus it shows Pasquale, but nobody else?
I think, if his wife was Angelina Pinchera, there last Child was Santucio, born Evesham, 1915?

I read in a write up, there were about six Girls and 4 Boys?

Please Help?

I think Pasquale came over from Italy to Scotland, then down to Evesham, and lived in Cowl Street for the rest of time, growing his Family.
Can anybody help please?

I have just come to know, there was a Daughter called Giovanilla. She was born in Windsor, Uk in 1893. She then married Raffaele Capaldi in Evesham. They moved to Detroit, USA and grew their own family. There was a website on the family recently called 'capaldifamily.com'. (now shut down?)
They then had a Daughter called Florence (fiorenza) in 1896 Edinburgh.

Please confirm these i have quoted are correct and please can someone let me know the rest of the names?

Hi Jamie

The Carmino you talk about was my great grandfather. Pasquale is my great great grandfather.
Him and his wife Angelina Moved from San Michele in Italy to Evesham in Worcestershire. Angelina was from a family of peach growers. When they lived in Evesham they ran 2 boarding houses.
Pasquale had 9 children - 6 girls and three boys.
The boys were
Carmino Capaldi 1904-1992
Christopher Capaldi
and Nicola Capaldi However I am not sure of the dates)

The girls were:
Florence Capaldi
Theresa Capaldi
Nellie Capaldi
Virginia Capaldi
Philomena Capaldi
Johanna Capaldi
(Again with the girls i am not sure on dates.)

My dad and i are trying to trace the family tree so any infomation you may have on any brothers or sisters/parents of Pasquale would be ace!

Hope this is of some use!

Hello, ecapaldi!

I am so glad to have found another distant relative on this great site!
I have recently found alot of information about Pasquale and his Family. I am in touch with decendants from Pasquales Children.
I have many names, dates, places and Photo's and would like to share it with you.
Carmino was originally married to Maria Capaldi (my ggrand auntie), but she died giving birth to Maria in 1927. Carmino then married Kathleen Talbot in 1934 )i think). Maria's Brother (my ggrand uncle), Vincenzo, married Carmino's sister Teresa and moved to USA.
Are you based around Evesham or Cheltenham area?

Please send me your email so we can exchange information?

Hi Jamie,

Thankyou for the reply, It was such a hit and miss whether you would reply or not, but thankyou.

My Grandad is Carlo or Carmino, Carmino and Kathleens eldest son.

It would be lovely to share information and would be great to see some photos. My email address is emilycapaldi@hotmail.co.uk
