I m researching my partners' family tree, and have found that his Great grandparents Carmino Trimarco and Elizabeth (nee Storer) are listed on the 1901 census as 'Lodging House keepers' of the Lord Nelson public house, Wareham Dorset. However, by 1911, Elizabeth is a widow, still in Wareham but occupation of a Fruiterer. We know Carmino died 1908, not yet why / how, and that other Trimarcos also came from Italy to run pubs around Hampshire / Surrey (e.g. The Volunteer, 5 Market Street in Worthing was being run by Giovanni Trimarco 1915. Interestingly, he met his wife Esther Moselle while she was working as a translator in Guildford police station, where he was in custody!)
Meanwhile, we know that other branches of the Trimarco family (all from an earthquake devastated village called Senerchia) went to the USA and settled in Chicago - eventually some were working alongside Al Capone, and are buried in the same cemetary! **
