Antonio Rossini
« on: Wednesday 17 June 20 22:33 BST (UK) »
Hi there
I am a descendant of Philip Rossini b 1835 who was a hairdresser in Glasgow. He died in 1913. I am really keen to trace the origins of his father Antonio. I have a copy of their intention to marry (Antonio and Martha) but no actual certificate so I have no details of his parentage. Is there anyone who could help with this?
I'd be really grateful.
Annie

There is a death certificate of Antoni (minus the final 'o') Rossini in Glasgow in 1865. If this is your Antonio, the death certificate should tell you the names of his parents.

Go to www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk, invest in a few credits, and use some of them to dowload the certificate.

Martha Rossini or Blair, aged 76, died in Glasgow in 1876. You could use some more of your credits to download her death certificate.

And she is a widow in 1851, so the death in 1865 can't be 'your' Antonio.

As he died before 1855, there is no death certificate.

The 1841 census looks interesting (transcription at https://freecen1.freecen.org.uk/cgi/search.pl)
Philip Rosena, 45, foreign
Matthew Rosena (female), 40, Scotland not Lanarkshire
Antonie Rosena, 19, Lanarkshire
Philip Rosena, 8, Lanarkshire
The transcriber's notes suggest that the original is hard to read, so you should definitely check it for yourself at Scotland's People.

I note there is no age shown in the death index for Antoni Rossini on scotlandspeople. I wonder if it is Philip's brother who is aged 19 in the 1841 census? None of the other 4 Antonio deaths fit in with his d.o.b. (but are surely relatives :)) )?

Annie, if you get an Italian link the Giornale de Barga website (click for English) might come in handy for Rossini. Many Glasgow Italians have a Barga origin.

Skoosh.

I just phoned a Scotch/Italian from the East End, he's not from Barga but further south. Says Rossini could come from anywhere but hasn't come across it here & he's been in Glasgow for more than 50 years.

 That was very early for folk coming from Italy to Glasgow.
