The Quilietti Family

Your Quilietti family heritage

MURRAY, Katrina’s line

Katrina BURNS is the daughter of Minnie Murray.  Minnie Murray was the daughter of Valentina Quilietti and Alex. Murray.  Katrina shares the same birthday as Jamie Stanton, 12th December, but different years of course.

That makes Katrina and myself second cousins.

Katrina has agreed to help me sort some of the Murray lines and I will dedicate this page to her and also to celebrate the life of her mum MINNIE MURRAY

Minnie Murray - named after her aunt Minnie Brattesani

Minnie was born   on 4th December 1928 in a flat at 23 St. James’ Street, Greenside, Edinburgh.   The Quilietti family were all still very much a part of the Greenside/St. James’ area and Minnie would have been in close proximity to  her Quilietti cousins who also lived nearby.   Many of the Quilietti family attended St. Mary’s Primary School in York Lane.

Minnie married William Burns and here is a lovely photograph of their wedding day
