Lazarus and Lorenzo Canepa were brothers in Genoa, Italy. Their father was John B. Canepa. The brothers left Italy in the late 1840s. Lazarus Canepa settled on the Isle of Man. Lorenzo Canepa initially settled in Runcorn. He married Martha Burrows in Manchester in 1854, then moved to the Isle of Man and preceded the Canipa family.
Spelling of the surname changed from Canepa to Canipa in April 1888 according to the birth records. Later records have mixed spellings.
