The Quilietti Family

The story of a Scots Italian family

BRATTESANI Jiulio 1871-1931

Jiulio Brattesani was the son of Giulio Brattesani born c 1850 in Borgotora,  and Maria Domenico Ferrari.

It is with great pleasure that we welcome Lia  Borrotzu into the family.  She has been in touch with myself, Helen, to link her line with our own. Thank you Lia.  

Lia is the second great grandaughter of Giulio and Maria Domenico Ferrari.  Lia and myself are officially 4th cousins.  Lia was born in Raynes Park in London where she lived for a good part of her life.  The family then moved on to Carshalton in Surrey.  Lia has now resettled in Italy but lived the last five years in England in Charlwood, Surrey.

Lia’s line back to GIULIO and MARIA

Lia’s great grandfathaer JIULIO  BRATTESANI married  Rosa Lanzarotti in London in 1893.  We find them in the 1911 English Census having been married for 18 years.  They had in total 10 children of whom were surviving at that time.  Jiulio was described as a Mosiac Layer and must have worked in the Terrazo trade in London.  His wife described as a bootmaker.

Brother Giuseppe Brattesani was living with them at the time and as we can see was described as a Bootmaker dealer.  He was unmarried at the time.   Juilio’s ├échildren were all born in England, the eldest Maria being a dressmaker.

Julia Eleanor married into the Zanre family and headed North to Elgin.   Her husband was  Eugenio Zanre and I have found one child, R. Zanre, who was witness at his mum’s death.  The family lived at 21 Young Street, Elgin at the date of her death in 1968.

Juilio or Giulio died in 1931.

If any of the descendants of Jiulio and Rosa can help up piece together their lives please contact Helen
