Am seeking information on my great grandfather, Battista Margnoni, who I believe left Giubiasco, Ticino in 1854, boarded the “Lucie” in Dieppe 5/12/54, arr Melbourne 8/3/55.
I know nothing more until he appears in the insolvency records of NSW in 1868, but is by then known as Baptiste Palazzi. In 1869 he was married to Assunta Delponte in Araluen NSW. Subsequent to this I have good documentation of his life. Anyone know of either of these names particularly around the Victorian and NSW goldfields?
