    Hi All,

    I am struggling with this one. The earliest record I can find is his marriage to Emily Goodwin in 1915. The family believes he was born on the 6th October 1888 in Formia, Italy before moving to Kensington, London when he was approximately 15. He was then a barber by occupation. I have tried various connotations of search strings to try and find him on the 1911 census as I guess a lot of foreign names were mis-transcribed. He died in Leominster, Herefordshire 23rd March 1975. Many thanks, Andrew.

    Couple of questions....

    Did he come to England in his own or with relatives?
    What was his father's name and occupation on the marriage certificate to Emily?

    Just wondering if his parents came with him....

    According to the 1939 he was born 6/10/1888 and a master hairdresser living in Shepherds Bush.
    No luck in finding him in 1911 though:(

    I think that is all the information the family have to give me. I may try tracing other relatives to see if they can tell me more.

    There is the mention of a Marco, Vincenzo, Di in the London Gazette 3 September 1926 page 5756. Then it says 'see Di Marco Vincenzo'. Anyone out there able to access that Gazette?
    At the bottom of the page it has
    Summary, The forgoing list contains 93 cases, viz...then a list of 10 Americans, 1 Austrian, and so on. At the very end is (those with asterisk)* Re-admission to British Nationality.
    Could this be his naturalization notice?

    London Gazette 3 September 1926 page 5754,
    at the beginning of the names that Vincenzo is in it says:

    NATURALIZATION.

    I wonder if he was back in Italy in 1911 to visit family.

    Perhaps it’s Paolo. Sounds like Parlo and so that is what was written.

    I'm inclined to agree with Parlo. A lot of Parlo's come up in Ancestry, but no Di Marco surname.

    I think Paulo sounds like "Parlo" in some British accents. Paulo is a common Italian name- so I would go with it.
