Antonio/Antonia Baptist Loco or de Louza

Postby loco1 » 02 Feb 2012, 15:02

My family name is Loco, I have traced back to what looks like Antonia on the written records but should probably be Antonio Baptist Loco, place of birth, Italy. That's as far as I have got to with UK records.

I did look at immigrants coming into England and came across an Antonio Baptist de Louza who is listed as coming from Portugal, maybe it's the same person? Maybe listed as from Portugal if he had to sail from Sicily (where I believe we came from), to Portugal then onto the UK?

It does fit with the story that the surname was changed at some point.

How common would the middle name Baptist be in Italy/Sicily?

Many thanks.

In 1871 census the birthplace is Genova ( or birtharea maybe) and I believe that the italian surname spelling could be LUCCA or LUCCHI (also it could be DE LUCCA or DE LUCCHI), and it changed in Loco..
