The Matese surname does not appear in the italy surname dictionary so it must be local in origin. If you want news about the name then go to www.google.com and insert MATESE-genalogy in the title and see what news there is about the name. Peter

There are both Matese and matesi surnamed persons in Italy but the surname is not listed in the italian surname dictionary. There is no dictionary word for either spelling. Try www.surnamefinder.com for any posssiblities. Peter

My grandfather was Michele Maltese. He immigrated the first time from Barano, Ischia. He went back and married my grandmother and that time he immigrated from Forio, Ischia. Ischia is an island off the coast of Naples. They lived in Philadelphia for a while before moving to New Jersey. Michele's father was Luigi Maltese and Luigi had a brother named Tomaso Maltese. I do not know who Luigi's wife was but there is a possibility that she was French. Michele was born in 1886, Luigi about 1859 and Tomaso about 1856.
Do you think there's any connection to your Maltese family?
