Hello! I'd like to know if someone could give some tips to find information about my surname, Assante di Cupillo. I know it comes from Procida, Naples, but I want to know more about the meaning of the words and the historical origins of it. I would appreciate your help very much!
My mother's dad was Giuseppe (Joseph) Assante. He was born in Procida in 1910 and emigrated to the US at a very young age with his brother, Biagio and mother, Carmela Scotto Assante. His dad was already in the states. I believe his name was Michele (Michael) Assante di Cupillo. I am attempting to construct a family tree and would love to chat with any relatives.
I, too, search for ancestry info on Assante di Cupillo. In particular anything related to the following: Procida, Italy
Salvatore Assante, 31 Jan 1825 - 1 Sep 1871 Married twice: #1 wife - Agnese "Agnes" (Anzalone) Assante children: Angela Maria Assante, 1848 Giovanni Battista Assante 1849 Christina Assante, 1853 Antonio Assante, 1855-1898 Auiello Assante, 1864-1884 #2 Wife: Maria Grazia (Anzalone) Assante WERE THEY SISTERS? children: Angela Maria Assante Christina Assante Leonardo Assante, 1861-1904..........this is the line I am tracing.
Any help would be immensely appreciated. Thank you. Cheryl
In regard to the post by DMarotta about info on the Assante family, please note that I am the same person as DMarotta. I could not log on with my original information so I had to register with a new name. Anyway I am still looking for information on the Assante di Cupillo family from Procida. This is my maternal grandfather's side of the family. Any info you may have is welcome. Please respond to email@example.com
Assante di Cupillo or any variation is not listed in the Italian surname dictionary thus making it a name local in origin or imported from abroad and Italianized. There is no dictionary word for Assante nor Cupillo. Local surnames were usually based on nicknames, first names, occupations or even an anecdote or joke. Peter
