Grazia Peri (also la Pera)

.
Born: estimated 8 August 1742 ~ Serradifalco, Kingdom of Sicily
Died: after 15 September 1805

Meaning of Peri [PEHR-ee]: possibly from Piero or Pietro, 'Peter'

 

        My fourth-great-grandmother Grazia's name is given on her baptism record as Peri.  She is named on her marriage record, below and the marriage records of her sons Giovanni and Michelangelo.  Her surname was not given on all records, but is 'Peri' on her birth and marriage marriage records and  'la Pera' on the record shown below, of the second marriage of her son Giovanni Alessi. 

 

Matrimoni (Marriages)

        This is the church marriage record of my fourth-great-grandparents Calogero Alessi and Grazia Peri.  All the Latin words aren't decipherable, but the critical information is.  In other records, Grazia's surname is given as la Pera.

Matrimoni (Marriages)

       This is a church record of the marriage of Giovanni, son of Calogero Alessi and Grazia la Pera.  Such records were ostensibly in Latin, but here it is mostly Italian mixed with Latin.  There are also some Latin abbreviations.  The phrase "d'Alessi" means "of the Alessi family", and the surname generally was given simply as Alessi, as it was passed down to today.
