Pacitto information in England

Postby lockmaster » 16 Feb 2008, 21:48

Hello :?:

My Greatgrandparents, surname DiCicco, lived in England from around 1896 and were listed as Organ Grinders in the 1901 Census in Walsall England.

They lived next door to Nicola and Vincenza Pacitto (spelling might be suspect) who were listed as Organ Grinder Employers. If you have a contact to this name, I am trying to gather information on Italians arriving in England with no skills and their progress through society from then on.

Thanks

Dominic

I remember as a child, 50 to 60 years ago, seeing Frank DiCicco's battery-powered ice cream van. He was a daily visitor to the Pleck area. A short fat guy who always had a 5 o'clock shadow.
I believe he lived in the Blakenall area of Walsall.
I just found details of a DiCicco in the phone listings near Walsall.

Dominic I did a quick check and found Nicola Pacitto died in Greenwich in October 2000 if this is your sought after person. =Peter=
