Alla ricerca dei Pedrotti

di Peter Pedrotti, Nuova Zelanda

Giovanni Pietro Pedrotti è migrato in Australia assieme allo zio Cesare Felice Pedrotti nel 1855. Si è sposato con Mary-Anne Byrnes a Daylesford nel 1864.

Sul certificato di matrimonio si legge che il luogo di nascita è Giumaglio, Valle Maggia. I suoi genitori erano Giovanni Felice Pedrotti (1812-1862) e Giovanna Maria Pozzi (1817-?).

C’è qualche Pedrotti che fa parte di questa famiglia?

  1. Hi Debra, Happy New Year. Thanks for replying. I have little information about the Byrnes side of the family other than word of mouth from my Dad, Albert William Pedrotti, born 1915 in Thames New Zealand, from his Dad, Leonard Angelo Pedrotti, born 1880 in Eganstown Victoria. His Dad, Giovanni Pietro Pedrotti, Born 1836 in Giumaglio Switzerland, married Mary-Ann Byrnes February 6 1864 in St Peters Catholic Church in Daylesford. You can see a copy in Victoria Births and Deaths page 185 schedule C item 48. It shows Mary-Ann Byrnes’ parents as Dennis Byrnes, shoemaker and his wife Mary Jane Skerrs. Dennis sold half a share of the Corrinella Mine at Deep Creek Eganstown. Giovanni, renamed Peter Pedrotti (same as me) later built the 60 room Corrinella Hotel. The records are available at the Daylesford Museum . Ask for Winsome Menadue she will know about the LaFranchi family. Of interest to you, a John Tynan born March 7 1859 married Mary-Ann Pedrotti in St. Peters Church in 1896. Her parents were Cesare Felice Pedrotti (brother of Giovanni) and Magaret Byrnes (sister of Mary-Ann), that means the Pedrotti brothers married the Byrnes sisters in Daylesford. Steve Tynan a Catholic Priest working in the Phillipines supplied this information.”mglmanila@pacific.net.ph”. He may have moved on since last contact 7 years ago.? If this is part of your family tree , then yes we are related. How exciting is that!.
    A footnote Mark Pedrotti,my younger brother, is an international Opera singer based in Canada. When a boy soprano he was recorded singing with my sister Angela the accompanist on the harp was Dorothea Franchi. (Note the La is missing) Maybe of your family?. I have more info on the Lafranchi family in Victoria if you wish to see.
    Again , happy New Year. Peter Pedrotti.

  2. Hello Peter,
    Do you have more information on the family back in Switzerland?
    I have a Anna Maria Pedrotti married a Giovanni Martino Lafranchi early 1800’s.
    I am a Lafranchi descendant in Australia. And here in Melbourne Australia, I have a Great Aunt Maud Mary Lafranchi married a Timothy Byrns in 1912. Interested to see if your Byrns is related to my Byrns?? It is a small world.
    Regards Debra.
