Strange Occupation on Death Certificate from 1837 MACCHIA VALFORTORE

Postby sprite1949 » 26 Jan 2016, 20:05

I am unable to figure out what the profession of my 3x great-grandfather Nicolangelo De Simone (born circa 1773) means on this death record. In all his children's birth certificate it was 'di professione Usciero' or 'Usciero Comande'. On this death record it appears even more specific?

Also, if the occupation is shown simply as 'Legale', what might that refer to as a specific job in the community? Many of the members of this De Simone family ancestors seemed to have this as an occupation.

This forum was extremely generous in assisting me last year and it helped me build an amazing family tree of ancestors. I hope this question can also be answered. Thank you in advance for any guidance you can give me.

Legale I believe is a legal officer/possibly lawyer; usciero comande is a head baliff.

Yes, I understand Legale to be a lawyer.

In the record posted here, for the occupation I read "usciere di giudicato regio " but I don't exactly know what this is. I can't find any reference to it. Picking up on what Biff has just said about "usciero comande" maybe it means "head royal judge"??? but that is just a guess. The word usciere means "usher" so another guess would be "usher to the royal judge" - or not. Sorry, just guess work on the definition but definitely: "usciere di giudicato regio".

A special hello to "suanj" who last year helped me solve the mystery of the unknown biological father of my grandfather who was a magistrate in Casacalenda and to whom a DNA link was found through the company 23andMe and their DNA relatives section. I have since discovered many records from this family thanks to your kindness. I recently discovered the birth record of this great-grandfather, a judge eventually (Nicolangelo De Simone). His father Vincenzo was a lawyer and his grandfather, another Nicolangelo, was the Royal Court bailiff as you have now revealed. Once again A BIG THANKYOU! And such quick responses too!

Best regards,
Lucy
