The Quilietti Family

Your Quilietti family heritage


Ian Quilietti is the son of Giulio Quilietti and Teresa Harper,

Il Padrino

Ian was born in Edinburgh and raised in the Lawnmarket, deep in the heart of Edinburgh’s old town.  In the 1950s when Ian was being raised life was not as it is today in this famous part of Edinburgh.  The area and her tenements were slums really, and to make things worse they lived on the top landing.  Six flights up was no mean task in those days when bumping children’s prams up and down the stairs.

Aulden days in the Lawnmarket - this one was taken in 1910 but it never improved until the 1980s

The Struthers family were and still are from the Aberdeen area of Scotland.

Ian describes Alison as the love of his life and their deep affection for each other is even obvious, even today after 40 years together.
