Surnames: Pierro, SPINA, SIMONELLI, di GIULIO, AMBROSINO, di FALCO, TROCCHIA, ALLOCCA, BENCIVENGA
I have been researching the Pierro families from Saviano (Naples) Italy for a number of years now primarily through vital records available on microfilm from the LDS library. I have been there 3 times since 1976, the most recent being April 2002. I am willing to share my information with anyone who has an interest in any of the surnames listed above, who thinks they may be from Saviano. To date the only person with a message on this site whom I know is related is Angela (see message June 2002). Saviano is a small town near Nola and east of Naples by about 20 km. Here is my Pierro direct line: Louis Pierro b 1951 NY son of Joseph Pierro b 1927 NY son of Luigi Pierro b 1893 Saviano son of Antonio Pierro b 1866 Saviano son of Luigi Pierro b 1839 Saviano son of Antonio Pierro b 1811 Saviano son of Francesco Pierro b circa 1786 son of Andrea Pierro died 1801 Saviano son of Antonio Pierro died 1790 Saviano. If you have any information for me, or would like information from me please contact me directly at pierrofa@hardlink.com thanks.

Dear Louis,

I am a descendant of the surname Ambrosino. I although do not know to much about them though. My grandmother was Mariantonia Franzese Caccavale who was born in Saviano, Naples, Italy in 1887 [I have an exact birthdate] by her father Giuseppe Franzese and mother Maria Concetta Ambrosino. My grandmother Mariantonia married my grandfather Ersamo [Erasmo?] Caccavale in 1910 or 1911, she had 2 children with him in Saivnao before she died in 1917. After loosing his wife Ersamo [Erasmo?] left for America and left his children behind with my great-grandparents Giuseppe Franzese and Maria Concetta Ambrosino, all we know is Maria Concetta Amborsino was a redhaired woman and her and her husband harvested grapes, figs, oranges, and lemons on their property in Saviano. We have no clue as to when she [Maria Concetta Amborsino] or he was born!! Although we do know she was born in Saviano. Would like to know if you can help?? We all will be waiting your response!!!

THANK YOU VERY MUCH
ANTHONY SARANTOPOULOS

Anthony, if you are there I would like to get in touch with you. I tried emailing, but got no response from you. I may have information for you, so please contact me by email if possible, if not through this site. Question: If the 2 children of Mariantonia and Erasmo remained in Saviano with their grandparents, did one of them marry your father and where was that? I hope we can connect. Louie

Surnames: TROCCHIA, FALCO,DI FALCO
My Great Grandmother was Giuseppa Trocchia and she married Tommaso Falco or Di Falco somewhere near Naples so it could have been Saviano. She was born in 1862 and Tommaso was born in 1863. In 1901 they were in the Uk living in Clerkenwell. I have no trace of them before that date. They had 5 children by 1901. The youngest Carmela (Carry) was born in 1900 and in the UK. The other children were Antonio born 1888, Michela born 1889, John born 1890, Annie my grandmother born in 1898, I can find no births in the uk or deaths so I assume they were born in Italy. The nameds I know were changed back tghen and my great grandfather became Thomas but again tghere is no death record for him. All I know is that when my grandmother married in 1918 he was still alive and in London as he gave her away but that is all that is available to me. CAN YOU HELP ME AT ALL.

I saw this old post of yours about Mariantonia Franzese. I'm descended from a Salvatore Franzese (1865-1900). He lived in Saviano before coming to America in 1896, his first wife was named Maria, and she married Erasmo Panarella in 1902 after Salvatore died. Do you have any connection to these Franzeses?

Surnames: Caccavale. Bruscino
Hi, I just saw your message. My grandmother was Rosa Caccavale born in Saviano in 1880. She came to England at the turn of the century with my grandfather Raffaele Bruscino and his brothers and his mum and dad.

Her father was Bernardo Caccavale. I also heard that we were related to Franzese, so assume we are of the same tree.


Best wishes,
Ann

Hi,
Just discovered a Pierro ancestor, although not sure of the commune of origin. I'm hoping to get something more specific on this from the death certificate: My GGgrandmother was Margherita Pierro, who died in 1918 in NYC. She was born in Italy. She married Sebastiano DeVito.

Dear all
I am writing to all of you via the last post that I saw on the website because I may well be the missing link for some of you.
The main problem is that Its impossible to know 100% how common, or how many families lived in Saviano with the surnames Ambrosino and Fuscille or Caccavale for that matter, however having been there many times myself since I was five years old it is more than probable that we may be talking about the same families as the coincidence is too strong so here is my side, see what you think
My Mothers maiden name was Ambrossino she was one of nine children born in Saviano to parents Franco Ambrosino and Maria Fuscille my Grandmother and Grandfather. I remember my grandmother well even though I was very young but my grandfather died I the late 1940’s or fifties, so I never meet him and my Grandmother died in the early 1960s The Falco Family itself was related to the Ambrosino family via marragies My aunt Maria Falco married my Uncle this was was quite a huge family and I remember meeting quite a few of them in my late teens including my American cousins who were from the Falco side of the family living in New York
The Caccavales I am sure they are the same ones I knew very well because I used to go to school with one of the Caccvale children in the UK his name was Ciro, he had tgree brothers Saverio, Giovanni, and Pompeo the Caccavale family knew my mother and vise versa when they lived in Italy, by the way the Caccavales came from a small village near Saviano called Sirigo (not shore of the spelling) and they indeed came over to the UK and congregated in the Clerkenwheel area originally ( little Italy) during those periodic times everyone did at that time as it was central for all Italians due to St Peters Italian Church being the only one in London
My Cousins aunts and uncles on the Falco and Ambosini side are mostly deceased now the ones that I knew , but still a good number are alive and well (both sides of the pond and of course living in Saviano)
The Caccavales I believe moved back to sirigo many years back, when my friends mother died in the UK I think that the husband may have died some years latter his name was Franco but I think everyone called him Cico , I still have some contacts via the family so if this makes any sense to any of you ,or you have questions please let me know I can still get contacts in Saviano and the USA re the falco family

PS The Falco famiy (some of them I know) moved to Brooklyn in the USA prior to WW2 and probably even before that, so I think some of you are on the right track I am limited to how much detail I can go into in a single post as I have quite a lot of information to sift through so please let me know if I can help
With regards to the other names ie Pierro as mentioned if you can remember anything about them ie what wotrk they did etc I may be able to help Saviano if any of you are aware is structured a bit like a small Hamlette and incorporates various small villages around it ie Massaria di Calone, Sirrigo, Masseria Romana, Via Tappia etc

Hope this helps
