My Grandfather came to America from Abruzzi, Italy. He settled in Washington DC., later Maryland. I would be interested if any other Caporaletti's have relatives from that area of Italy.

Surnames: Caporalette, Caporaletti
My David Caporalette came from Ancona in Italy. Is that anywhere near Ambruzzi. He had a son James that ended up in Fremantle, Western Australia. He was my great grandfather and it seems that I can't find anything about him prior to him coming to Western Australia.

Hi Alison,

We have the same Caporalette ancestor. David Caporalette is my gr-gr-gr-grandfather. I'm afraid I'm stuck at this point. I live in Melbourne, Australia and there is a large group of his ancestors here. James Caporalette, David's son, changed his surname to Cottrell and his descendents have been known as Cottrell ever since.

In fact, a Yahoo Group has just been set up by someone in Melbourne with Cottrell's in his family. Send me an e-mail if you're interested.

Thanks,

Nicole

Hi Nicole,

My mum is Aileen Cottrell the only daughter of Cyril George Cottrell who is one of James Sons. Are you by any chance related to William Cottrell the oldest son of James who moved to Victoria from Western Australia where the family lived in Fremantle? I am very interested in joining the Yahoo Group as I have been researching this name for over 10 years. I would like to share my info with you so please send me your email address. Here is my web address

I dont have too much information on the family and have only one contact in Italy from where James came. He seems to think we are related but still trying to make a connection. I have a copy of James Naturalisation Certificate and the information from when he came out here and on what ship but I can only trace him back as far as leaving Liverpool in England.

Hope to hear from you soon

Alison

David, My grandfather is from the Abruzzi area of Italy and I'm almost certain we are relatives. I belive your grandfather is my grandfather's brother. My grandfather was Ermenio and my grandmother was Desolina Mattioli. Am I right? I hope so, I'd love to talk more with you.
