- You could try contacting the National archives, they may be able to give you further details and meanwhile have you looked at their website as they have a large amount of leaflets and I feel sure that there must be something coving this subject.

Maybe he paid rates on his property and assumed that made him British !!!
At one time ( and maybe still ) 'foreigners' were not allowed to vote but
if they filled in the form and returned it I din't think anyone checked..
at least that
is what I have found.

- Hello Listers
I have been corresponding with a fellow researcher in Canada of my gggrandfather Angelo CAFFARATE who according to the 1851 census was born in Genoa about 1791 and first known child was born in Holborn in 1837.
I received the following.
I am curious David as to how it is that Angelo was listed as a British subject but was born in Italy. My theory is that he was a "denizen" of England which though it has negative connotations now it was not the case then. He would have held a letters patent

If he wasn't a British Subject, then you should be able to find his Alien Regristration Card, from 1916(that's the year, my Great Grandfathers was taken), these are very useful, for info, mine says, when he came to Birmingham, where he was working, when he left birmingham, to vist anywhere, children etc............I got mine from the West Midlands Police Musesum.

My Grandfather claimed to be a British subject on the 1901 census, but he
wasn't, there was no trace of any application at the Home Office. I think
many of the Italians who came here in the early years, thought that if they
were here for some considerable time, nationality became automatic. I doubt
if men acquired British Nationality by marrying a British woman, but in
contrast from History of British nationality Law:
British subject status was normally lost by:

- Many thanks to all who replied to my request, I will follow up your advice.
I have tried the National Archive previously when I found the naturalisation
papers of James Louis Cafferate from Genoa issued 18 Dec 1844, he did not
appear to link in with my branch of the family. Unfortunately this was the
only hit for several variants of the surname.
I will follow up the denization lists the next time I am at Kew.
- 7. Re: [ANGLO-ITALIAN] British Subject

Naturalisation was an expensive process, so unless wealthy, most
Italians would not have become naturalised.

- When the Anglo Italian FHS was first formed back in 2002, I was Vice Chair. This was a discussion we had almost from the beginning. There really was no alternative that was suitable & members researching Italian heritage in Wales, Scotland & Ireland were felt to be included in the wider sense of Anglo - they were of course included.
Furthermore, the Anglo German & in the past Anglo French FHS's had the same issue, & felt that an alternative should be considered, but as we found there really wasn't a suit

quite a lot about this since receiving the questionnaire. The English part
of our ancestry is actually quite small so I didn't originally think that
AIFHS would be of much use to me. In fact, it has been amazingly useful. Not
only has it given me lots of general information but it has allowed me to
trace my original Italian ancestor from London to Edinburgh.

Does it discourage Scottish and Welsh Italian researchers, whom the
Society was intended to include?
This came up at the last AGM. Should we change the name?
Another suggestion is that we add a strapline to the current name to
avoid the problems of rebranding and changing the name of our bank account.
I'd like to hear what other members and non-members think. Do we need to

I've only recently joined the society and am English with Italian
connections. I also have Scots relatives too and Irish! Anglo-Italian might
put some people off I suppose. It all gets rather complicated when you try
to find a name to include all parts of the British Isles! Maybe
Anglo-Italian-Gallic Society? Or Anglo-Italian-Celtic?

Just a thought - I have about 14 questionnaires back from exisiting members (which I will send in time for the meeting, if youd like me to) almost all of which suggest no name change. Im neutral on this, so if a vote was required, I might well abstain.
My thought is that we would probably need to change the Anglo-Italian portion of the name - so we need to think about this - but I do not believe that British or UK is an acceptable substitute. Which doesnt leave us much in the way of ch

- Good morning.
Thank you to Phyllis and Keith Brookes for once again welcoming members of the Anglo-Italian Family History Society to their home on Saturday, 15th February.
It was a very special opportunity to indulge my passion for family history in a beautiful, relaxing location and to meet people face-to-face instead of via email, telephone and Skype. The delicious, home-made Anglo-Italian lunch was a bonus!
I can't wait for next year's gathering, Phyllis and Keith; please book me a place.

- I have sent in my questionnaire (although a little late) and agreed the name should stay - although very Essex based I have always considered Anglo to encompass the whole of the British Isles. And agree there is also the problem of what else could you use.
I think the idea of a strap-line sounds better - though off the top of my head cannot think what it could be.
And on the subject of the WDYTYA Show, as a volunteer who managed a day on the stand, I have to say how much I enjoyed the day. I was not sur

I am another Welsh member and also have no problem with the name.
It seems unnecessary to go to the expense of changing the name, when it
is common practice to have "Anglo" in names and that of the Society is
already so well known as it is.
