I am trying to trace the origins of Charles Festorazzi who was born about 1808 in Italy. I believe he came from the north of Italy, around the Como area.

I would like to know exactly when he arrived in England. Was he with friends or family or did he arrive alone and why?

He married Charlotte Langridge on 26 Dec 1831 in Tonbridge, Kent and they had eleven children. (Well that's all I've found so far)

He died in Tunbridge Wells on 12 Dec 1886

He appears on all the census from 1841 - 1881.

On the census forms it always says he was born in Italy, so I cannot understand why he is called Charles and not Carlo.
It's Charles on his marriage record, his death certificate and all his children's birth certificates after 1837.

I wondered if he was born in Italy to an Italian father and an English mother.

I can't speak Italian so can anyone point me in the right direction.
