I was very surprised to come across your message posted on the forum.I had no idea there were any Salazars still left in Naples.Is the Salazar square of which you speak the Piazetta Demetrio Salazar outside the Museo Artistico Industriale? Since you mention Reggio Calabria as well I have an impression that we might be distantly related.My branch of the family originally came from Calabria and then moved to Naples in the 19th century.In fact Demetrio Salazar was my great great grandfather.My Grandfather was Demetrio Sarsfield Salazar who lived and died in Naples (1967.) My family tree goes as follows:-
Generation 1:- Juan Antonio de Salazar married 10th September 1787 ANTONIA SCOPELLITTI.
Generation 2:- Lorenzo de Salazar, he lived in Reggio Calabria and married CATALINA SURACE on the 1st November 1807. They had 8 children as follows in chronological order:-Francesco Giuseppe Giovanni Bruno Antonio Vincenzo Maria Diacono Marianna Demetrio ( My great great grandfather.He moved to Naples and is buried in the cemetry at Pozzuoli.I have yet to find his grave there.)
I was wondering if you were descended from any of the above?
Generation 3;- Demetrio Salazar nato a Reggio 22.11.1822.E sposata con una Donna Irlandese che si chiama Anne Maria Dora Macnamara Calcutt. He was an Italian Archaeologist and had to flee Naples because he got mixed up in the Risorgimento.
Generation 4:- Lorenzo Sarfield Salazar. born 22.11.1857 Reggio Calabria. Lived at San Martino, Naples. Italian Ambassador to Ireland.Married Emma Englen
Generation 5:- Demetrio sarsfield Salazar. Lived and died in Naples.Married Vera Colby.Italian Vice Consul to Ireland.
Generation 6:- Juan Colby Sarsfield Salazar married Jeanne Oliphant.
