Manx Genealogy


Lazarus (Lazzaro) and Lorenzo Canepa were brothers in Italy. Their father was John (Giovanni) B. Canepa and their mother had died. Lazarus settled on the Isle of Man c.1848. Lorenzo initially settled in Runcorn and later moved to the Isle of Man after marrying in 1851, and preceded the Canipa family.

Lazarus Canepa:
B. 1827-8, Italy. Father: John B. Mother: Unknown.
M. Mary Alice Green, 16 April 1850 at St. Francis Xavier (precursor church to St.Mary’s), Douglas, IoM.
D. 16 March 1894 at 14 High Street, Oban, Scotland, aged 67.

Lorenzo Canepa:
B. 1821, Italy.
M. Martha Burrows, 06 November 1851 Manchester.
D. 10 October 1868 aged 47.

I am trying to trace the origins of Lazarus and Lorenzo and it would help me if I knew where the brothers were born in Italy.
