Notes for Orazio Molendini:
His baptism listing was not found in the Ostuni parish archives, although given the common names among those listed, it would seem that he was related to the earliest Molendinis listed (as far back as 1575).
Luigi Greco, on page 70 of La Chiesa di Maria Santissima Annunziata in Ostuni: Storia e arte, refers to a contract, dated 24 February 1601, pursuant to which master masons Orazio Molendini and Angelo Saponaro undertake to construct a cemetary across from the Church of Santa Maria del Muro. This may have been the same Orazio Molendino, since the Ostuni baptism listing does not show any other Orazio Molendini fathering children at about that time.
Greco also refers to the Molendini family as a "noble Ostuni family", on page 103, footnote 9, of La Chiesa di Maria Santissima Annunziata in Ostuni: Storia e arte.
Macedonio de Molendinis -- the earliest reference to this surname yet discovered -- practiced law in Monopoli in 1567 and may have been a relative. See "'Forma Urbis' e Asetto Sociale" (secc. XIV-XVI), in Monopoli nell'Eta del Rinascimento, v. II.
Children of Orazio Molendini and Isabella Locorotondo are:
