Hi Mark
Thanks for the pointers. I'm looking for the Franciosy's in Sunderland. Its appears the name should be Franciosi but some error made on arrival in this country. The first record appears to be Antonio who was born in Scapoli, Italy around 1825 and died in Sunderland 1906. There is also a Pasqualy who was born in 1857 in Scapoli but have no record of death or whether he is brother or son of Antonio. I also found the marriage of a Pasqualy in 1947 so cant be the same man. My husbands parents - Anthony Stephen Franciosy b 1917 and Nora Whitehead were also married in 1947 and had twin sons my husband Ken and Ron in November of that year. There is an Edward b 1886 who could be the Grandfather but I cant confirm. I think Maria Franciosi could be a sister of Antonio who came to Sunderland first.
Regards Heather
