I have done some research on my family history, particularly the Canepa family from the time Lazarus Canepa arrived in Douglas, IoM in the late 1840s.
Joseph and John Canepa were brothers and children of Lazarus and Alice Canepa. I am descended from Joseph and Catherine Jane Canepa, and their daughter Elizabeth Alice b. 20 March 1883, Douglas, IoM.
You will probably know that Bunty Canepa was the daughter of John and Ellen Canepa. Yesterday, I received some information about Bunty's death from the Royal Court House, Guernsey :
Ethel May Canepa.
B. 12 May 1893, Douglas IoM.
D. 19 February 1944, Guernsey.
Cause of death: Pulmonary Tuberculosis, Exhaustion & Leukaemia.
The cause of death seems consistent with what you say in your post. Where did you get this information?
Attached is a photo of Bunty with her sister Winifred May Canepa, aka Winnie, b. 09 June 1895, Douglas IoM. Bunty is on the left of the photo.
I am currently seeking more information from the Royal Court House about the circumstances of Bunty’s death and where she is buried, so your post interested me. I will be visiting Guernsey shortly.
I would much appreciate information on your connection with the Canepa family.
