I am doing my family history and my ggggrandfather came from Trieste, Italy, I think. His parents are Marcello and Catarina ........ his name was Nicholas Bonnitcha (english version). Can someone translate the surname into Italian please (BONNITCHA), and possibly where in Italy he came from. He was a seaman and signed his name with a x mark and they put his name as Nicholas Bonachit and that he came from Trieste, Italy. He ended up in Liverpool, England in 1856 and then came to Hobart, Tasmania, Australia in 1856. He was born on the 25th December 1834. He married a Euphemia Fraser from Scotland where they met on the ship "W F Williams" which came from Liverpool, England. They had eight children and he died on the 24th September 1913 in Hobart, Tasmania.
All the information would be apprciated
