The Cachia family left Greece in approximately 1850 to travel to Malta. Mr. Cachia left his children in St. John's convent for safety. He then returned to Greece where he died. One of these children Matilda Grace Cachia (born Smyrna now in Turkey) married Thomas Hayes in Malta.A son was born to them in Malta. Edward Hayes (born 1867)who became my ggrandfather. If you have any connections please contact me I would love to hear from you. Cheers, Margaret.
