Ponisi Family Connections Channel Islands?

Surnames: Ponisi, Kelley, Newton
Ponisi - Devonport and St. Austell Cornwall
I am seeking relationships between and information on the following Ponisi families of Devonport and St. Austell. Dates shown are mainly based on Free BMD:

Dominick Ponisi, 1881 census shows b. 1820 Devonport, occupation French Polisher, wife Matilda b. 1822 Devonport. Dominick died Mar 1892 St. Austell, Matilda died June 1899 St. Austell

James Ponisi b. Italy abt 1788, married Mary Newton in Penzance in 1811. They produced at least 3 children - James b. abt 1813 Penzance, Marian b. abt 1824 Devon and Rosina b. abt 1827 Devon. Marian married Alexander Gendall Newton in 1845 Penzance

Joseph Ponisi b. Italy abt 1805, married Lydia Kelley in St. Austell in 1829. They produced at least 11 children in St. Austell. Joseph died December 1878 St. Austell. Lydia died December 1854 St. Austell

I believe there may have been some children born in the Channel Islands.

Any comments appreciated.

How have you got on with this. If you like next time I go to the library to do research (all births, deaths etc are held there only) I can look up by surname if you like if you have not got any further.

Bonjour Marie-Claire!
I have yet to establish the relationship between James Ponisi (1813 Madron Penzance) and Dominick Ponisi (1820 Devonport)- perhaps cousins?

I have found that James (1788 Italy) and Mary Newton (1790 Penzance had another child in addition to James (1813), Marian (1824) and Rosina (1827); he was William Ponisi b. 1815 Stoke Dameral, Plymouth, who married Angelina Rivolta 1839, Plymouth. He died abt Sept 1889 Barton Regis.

I would be happy if you were to see if Ponisis were to be found in the Channel Islands. Thank you!

No problem I will next time I am there but have no idea when that will be next month probably. Also I can only do the Bailiwick of Guernsey (Guernsey and Alderney) not Jersey. Jersey hold their own records. Where abouts are you are you in the UK.
