Pederana / Pedrana

Postby theresa3 » 11 May 2011, 16:06

Try in find out more info on my x3 great grandfather. Here is the info that I have to date:
His name is Louis / Luigi Antonio Pederana / Pedrana born c1757 Italy, died 1884 at Halyburton House, Kettins, Angus, Scotland. He was buried in Kettins Cemetery there is a gravestone marker in his name.

He worked for some time in the kitchens of the King of Sardinia (House of Savoy). He somehow turned up at around 1800 on the Isle of Barra, South Uist, Outer Hebrides, Scotland. While there he had one son John (not sure he he married the Mother). He was then employed by Lord Halyburton as a manservant until he died. He went on to married twice and producing a number of children. Have quite a bit of info on his later life and that of his children.

I would love to find more info of his life prior to coming to scotland and hopefully his family members. - I will keep my fingers crossed for info.

Thanks - Terri

According to the 1851 Scottish census, his approximate date of birth is 1836. This doesn't appear to be in line with the info you posted. And surely he wasn't born in 1757 as you stated. We need more names and dates that directly relate to Luigi.

I am trying to find out more about Luis Pedrana from Uist (just out of interest, no family ties).

Just to check, is the House of Savoy connection for sure or speculative?
