Surnames: Capaldi Macari

My name is Jamie Capaldi, and i live in Bristol, uk.I am in the process of building a family tree. I have information upto my Great Grandfather. My Gramps told me his dad was born in Edinburgh in 1900. I can not find any information of this only his death record, where he died in Bristol in 1964. His name was 'Michele Frederick Capaldi', and his parent/s was from the Frosinone area of Italy? Thats about as far as i can go. Is there any other information anyone can offer about the Capaldi's, so i can complete my Family Tree?

Many thanks!

I just read your message. My maiden name is Capaldi. My family comes from Cervaro, near Cassino, Frosinone, Italy. My grandfather's name was Francesco and died in the 1930s. He had two children, one of whom migrated to Australa. Does this information help ?

Hello, thanks for the reply.
I have done quite a lot of research since this post, and found my Family were from Cassino, right next to Cervaro.
I am also in touch with a Curtis who was born in Cervaro, who's Mother was a Capaldi.
I dont suppose you know when your Grandfather was born do you?

My GGgrandfather was Giuseppe, he had 2 Brothers. One was Giovanni who he travelled to UK with, but Giovanni returned in 1910's and other was Francesco who i am unsure what he done?

I would really be interested to hear back from you.

Thanks Jamie Capaldi

Hi Jamie - do you have a connection to Dante CAPALDI, born in Bristol in 1928 (mother's maiden name INNELLI), who married Jean DAFFURN in Bristol in 1950? Jean is my second cousin once removed through her mother Evelyn (or Eveline) Daisy ROBINSON. I have just come across the CAPALDI connection and would be interested to compare notes if Dante is related to your CAPALDI branch.

Hello Robin,

Yes! Dante is my 1st Cousin twice removed.
I met him for the first time with Jean about 4 weeks ago.

Any info you would like, just let me know.

Cheers Jamie

Hi Jamie - it's fantastic to make that connection!

I would be particularly interested to check whether the ROBINSON info I have pieced together is correct. I believe that Jean's maternal grandparents were Harold ROBINSON (b. Bristol 1884) and Lizzie MASTERS (b. Coventry 1888). From Harold's WWI records, they were married at All Saints Long Ashton on Christmas Day 1908. I found two children, Eveline (sometimes Evelyn) Daisy and Harold W. This week, I found Eveline's marriage to Kenneth DAFFURN, thanks to her relatively unusual first name, but there are a lot of Harold ROBINSONs around, and I have not been able to trace Harold W ROBINSON further. I also have no information on Harold (senior) and Lizzie after the 1911 census, except for Harold's WWI records.

Harold (senior) had an older sister Letitia Ann ROBINSON who was my great grandmother. My mother remembers her well, and I have several photos of her attached to my tree. She married Samuel James (Jack) CATTELL and settled in Midsomer Norton, where her son, my grandfather Samuel John (also known as Jack) CATTELL (the 11th of their 12 children), lived for most of his life and where my mum was born.

I wonder whether you might be able to put me in touch with Dante and Jean or perhaps pass some questions on to them for me? I would be more than happy to share what I have on Jean's ROBINSON ancestry. I would be particularly interested in any photos they might have of this ROBINSON line. I have both a public and private tree on Ancestry and am always happy to keep information private if people prefer.

Thanks so much for your reply.
