Dear Anthony, I was delighted to find your web site and E mailed you to inform you of the Reas in America. I hope you got my E mail and am looking forward to seeing it on the message board. Please let me know if you got my original. Looking at the Ice Cream Lorry with the same initial and Rea name on the site was a treat for me and my brother and sister. The lorry looked similar to my father's and he would have been delighted to know of Reas in Great Briton. The name is quite rare here for the Italian Reas. But the Scots and Irish are more common. All the best, Mike Rea

I am trying to find information about my Grandfather .I believed his surmane was Gondolphin but having got a copy of his marriage certificate see that it is stated as Gondolfu. He was married to Sarah Wilkinson at All Souls Church Manchester. October l9,1885. Their occupations were musicians. The witnesses were Giani Batista Pesagno and Almasinda Capuci . I would be grateful for any information.
