Any chance that the name is Sant'Elia? Do you know whether you ae speaking of Campobasso the city or Campobasso the Province?

Three possible towns of origin:

I have three Santella families in my database that originated in Jelsi (CB).

One Santella entry might have originated in Gambatesa (CB) -- her son was born there and her husband died there.

All of the above families ended up in Campobasso (CB).

In addition, the surname Santella was assigned as a surname to a foundling on at least one occasion in Campobasso (CB).
