only got as far back as Quirico`s parents, who obviously weren`t from England, so no records to see. Do you want me to carry on looking at Quirico`s wife`s family, who were all from Sheffield, as far as I can see?

There was a Joe Fontanas ice cream company in Carlisle in the 60s.
I'm afraid i dont know if it's still trading.

On Ancestry.com (the worldwide site) there is reference to quirico fontana's birth in Italy. A tip for getting the results without having to pay the subscription is to buy some pay as you go credits on Ancestry. co.uk and then you can access the information.:)

i was surprised to read this msg which appeared while I was looking for references to Quirico Fontana on the net.
my greatgrandfather was named Quirico Fontana. he was Swiss, from Stabbio or Novazzano in Ticino. he moved to Neuchatel and married Fanny Volper. they had 14 children. there is an Albert Fontana who was one of the children or possibly a grandchild. i believe he moved to Brasil.
