I'm trying to trace the genealogical roots of a Bazillio/Basilio Gilardone who was a jeweller and possibly a barometer maker in Exeter, Devon, UK in the early 1800s. He would have been born in approx 1783 and married around about/just before 1810. We know what happened to him after his marriage and he sadly died quite young, but have been unable to find out, so far, where he came from, who his parents were or how he came to be in Exeter.

From his name, we assume he may have been Italian and, having gone through the records of several of the Exeter parishes, there don't seem to have been any other previous generations of Gilardone's based in the area. An archivist has said there were several Italian's known to have gone to work in Exeter around that time, so he could have arrived with them. But we'd love to know for sure about his origins.

If anyone can shed any light or has researched other Gilardone's, I'd love to hear from you.

Many thanks,
