Reply To: Francisco Anzani (c.1801-1883)
I was fascinated to discover this information about my 3 x great grandfather Francisco Anzani (Anazani) 1801 – 1883 born in Milan.
Although I have information about his shops particularly in Buxton and Huddersfield and although I was not sure about the link to Barometers it is very good to have this hard and fast knowledge. I did see an Anzani Barometer for sale on ebay but thought he had applied the name Anzani as a seller. I did not know he made them or that indeed he was a carver and gilder.
Thank you for posting this information. My descent is through his daugher Isabella’s marriage to John Conolly. One of his sons was Godfather to my grandmother Mary Isabel Conolly.
