SARTORI Family History, Part I

September 2014
Italian and Latin Names
Parish records, from which most of this information comes, is primarily written in Latin, while civil records are primarily written in Italian. Names that have only been observed in Latin but have either been converted to Italian or left in Latin are rendered in italics.

The family name Sartori may come from the Italian sarto, which means "tailor."


Giacomo SARTORI1 (~1631-< 1698)

May 20141. Giacomo Sartori1 was born about 1630 or 1631, probably in Giumaglio, Ticino canton, Switzerland. He had at least on son:

In 1692, Giacomo, a widower of the age of 61, was enumerated with his son Pietro and his young familiy.[Cen 1692]

Giovanni Pietro SARTORI2 (~1666-1744)

May 201411. Giovanni Pietro Sartori2 was born about 1666, probably in Giumaglio, Ticino canton, Switzerland. He may have married as many as four times. He first married Margherita Teresia Cerini and had at least seven children before her death. Next, he maried Catterina Terrini (Cerini?)1 and had two children. Pietro later married Maria Catterina Marchese by 1719[Bap 1719] and had two more children. Finally, Pietro may have been married yet once more to another woman named Margherita. All together, Pietro fathered as many as 11 children over the span of 33 years:

11A. Giacomo Sartori (1689-1690) (1698-1702) (< 13)

August 2014Pietro and his wives chose the following as godparents for their children:

Pietro was named as godfather to Maria Domenica Mazzini[Bap 1716B] and Maria Domenica Giumini.[Bap 1722]

Margerita Theresia Cerini

In 1692, Pietro, Margherita Teresia, and children Giacomo and Maddalena (the elder), were living with Pietro's father. Pietro's father died sometime before 1698 while in his 60s.

The family continued to grow and in 1702 a 19-year-old Catterina Cerini was enumerated with them as a "servant," but died soon thereafter.[Cen 1702] It is not know if or how Catterina might have been related to Margherita Teresia.

Eldest daughter Maddalena died sometime between 1703 and 1709, while in her teens. Around 10 years later another daughter was named Maddalena3.

Margherita Teresia (Cerini) Sartori died sometime between 1709 and 1716.

Catterina Terrini/Cerini1

May 2014After Margherita Teresia's death, Pietro remarried to Catterina Terrini (or Cerini?) and they had two children together. The baptism records of children Maddalena3 and Pietro do not name Catterina's father, however, Pietro's godmother was named as "Joanna Maria, the daughter of Joannis Tarrini", perhaps Catterina's sister.[Bap 1716,1718]

September 2014Catterina (identified only as Pietro's wife) was named as the godmother to Giovanni Pietro Marchese.[Bap 1718B] This record was retranscribed over a decade after the fact, and in combination with parish census records, the event have happend in 1716, between the births of Catterina's two children. On the other hand, Pietro Marchese was likely a relative of Maria Catterina Marchese. Or, perhaps Catterina's choice as godmother was because of her husband's relationship (as yet unknown) to the child's Sartori mother.

Maria Catterina Marchese

Pietro later married Maria Catterina Marchese, the daughter of the late Giovanni Marchese. They had two more children together. She was named as godmother to Giovanni Giacomo Thomaso Ianzini[Bap 1719] and Giuseppe Pozzi in 1729.[Bap 1729]

Youngest daughter Giovanna Maria is likely the one who died at the age of 16 on October 21, 1736, however her father's name was not recorded.[Dth 1736]

Giovanni Pietro continued on through 1741 when he was enumerated, at the age of 75, with his sons Giovanni and Giuseppe, their wives, and 10-year-old granddaughter Maria Teresia Sartori.[Cen 1741]

Margerita(?)

August 2014A woman named Margherita Sartori died on January 24, 1744, at her home in Giumaglio. She was 60 years old and the first of four or five adults in the parish who died over the following six weeks. She was buried the following day in the cemetery of the Church of Santa Maria Assunta.[Dth 1744A] If she was Pietro's wife, she was not counted as such in the parish census of 1741. A review of the census of that year shows only one woman named Margherita of a similar age: Mrs. Margherita (Cerini) Pozzi, who was 60 years old and still married to Benedetto Pozzi.[Cen 1741]

Pietro's Death

Giovanni Pietro Sartori died on February 2, 1744, at his home in Giumaglio, a week after Margherita Sartori, and the second of five adults in the parish who died over a six-week period. He was reportedly about 76 years old.[Dth 1744B]
