I'm researching some Italian families who lived in West Ham/ Stratford from about 1900 called Lombardi and also Gambadella.

I'm particularly interested in Enrico 'Harry' Lombardi who in 1911 lived on Abbey Lane with his family. He was a 'colour worker'.

His daughter Marguerite/ Margaret married George Brunt (Webb) in 1934 at Christ Church West Ham. Their marriage certificate says that they were both living on Gibbins Rd in Stratford.

His mother was Emily Maud Adams from Bow, who married Henry Brunt in 1903 in Dorset. Henry died in 1912. We haven't found Maud on the 1911 census but she turns up again in Stratford with a new family being born from 1913 - Frederick (1913), George (1914), Thomas (1915) and Herbert (1920). We believe that her partner was called William Webb but the new children all took her married surname. She had two children with Henry Brunt, called Archie and Ernest.

We understand that the Gambadella's had a shop in Stratford we think. Any information on them would be great too.

If anyone knew them, any information at all would be appreciated.

Thank you.
