French DePasquale Family Reply

Hi, My grandfather Guiseppe DePasquale came from the province of Chieti in the Abruzzo region where in 90 BC it was occupied by an Italic people called the Manucini. In the early hundreds (around 600) this area was destroyed and then occupied by the Lombards, a Germanic tribe until the 1100s. After which time the French Normans conquered Cheiti and occupied it until 1860 at the time of the unification of Italy. The DePasquale's in this area are believed to have come from the French Normans. I hope this helps some people who had questions about the DePasquales around the Abruzzo region.
