Famiglia ritenuta d’origine longobarda, della quale si hanno antichissime memorie in Amalfi, ove era annoverata fra le più illustri, ed ove diede un arcivescovo a quella sede. Si diramò a Napoli, sotto gli Angioini, e fu aggregata ai seggi di Nido e Portauova, ed in quest’ultimo sino all’abolizione generale dei sedili. Questa famiglia si legge essere tra le feudatarie dell’epoca sveva; fu decorata di vari titoli nobiliari passati in altre famiglia, di alti ordini cavallereschi e della porpora cardinalizia, e venne nel 1809 iscritta al Libro d’oro napoletano. Nel 1834 fu riconosciuta nella sua antica nobiltà nelle prove fatte da altra famiglia per l’ammissione nelle RR. Guardie del Corpo.. Riguardo a questo cognome abbiamo ritrovato ulteriori informazioni storiche in altri archivi. Purtroppo in lingua originale Inglese. : This French, Italian and Spanish Last Name of CAPUANO was primarily extrapolated from the Old French word ‘chape’ meaning a hooded cloak, cape, hood or hat, and was applied as a metonymic occupational name for a maker of either cloaks or hats, or as a nickname for a habitual wearer of a distinctive cloak or hat. The name was written in medieval documents in the Latin form CAPPA or CAPA. The two Latin byforms were borrowed into Old English as COEPPE and CAP, respectively, becoming in modern English Capper and Cope, with later semantic differences. The name has numerous variant spellings which include CAPONE, CHAPE, CAPE, CHAPUT, CHAPET, KAPPE, KEPPER and CAPELLI. As the agricultural depression of southern Italy worsened towards the end of the 19th century, people started to escape to the New World. The exodus started in earnest in 1887 with Brazil and other parts of Latin America being the original destinations. By 1893, the economy had improved in the United States and people headed there from Italy in greater and greater numbers. In 1898 there were more Italian immigrants to the USA than from any other state. In the post war era, more than a quarter of Italians left the state for a new life. They joined a flood of immigrants to America which was averaging a million a year in the pre war years. The origins of Italian last names are not clear, and much work remains to be done on medieval Italian records. It seems that stable bynames, in some cases hereditary, were in use in the Venetian Republic by the end of the 10th century. The typical Italian Last Name endings are ‘i’ and ‘o’, the former being characteristic of northern Italy. The singular form ‘o’ is more typical of southern Italy. The most infamous member of this name was Alphonse (Al) CAPONE (1899-1947) the American gangster, born in Brooklyn. He achieved worldwide notoriety as a racketeer during the prohibition era in Chicago, but until 1931 there was insufficient evidence to charge him with. Once caught, however, he was sentenced to ten years imprisonment for tax evasion. The associated coat of arms for this name are recorded in J.B Rietstaps Armorial General. Illustrated by V & H.V Rolland’s. This monumental work took 23 years to complete and 85,000 coats of Arms are included in this work….
