Thommaso Chiappini
Anthonio Caspar Melchior Balthazar Chiappini 1
merchant 2
born circa 1778, Florence, Tuscany 3
died 30 August 1860, Wynberg, Cape Town 4
buried Observatory, Dutch Reformed Church Cemetery 5
In his petition for permission to remain at the Cape, dated 13th July 1807,
presented to then Governor of the Cape, he stated that he was a native
of Florence, and had 'arrived at the Cape on his return from Calcutta, to
England in the Danish Ship Dannebrog, in the month of October 1803,
from circumstances was induced to stay in the Cape and on application
to the then existing government procured permission ot the Governor to
remain at the Colony.

According to his death notice of 1860 completed by Peter James Chiappini,
his parents were Thommaso & Vincenzia Chiappini. D F Malherbe, however,
in his book Stamregister van Suid-Afikaanse Families, 1966, states that his
parents were Lorenzo Chiappini (1739-1821) and Vencenzia Diligenti (info.
courtesy Heather MacAlister
). This last, as usual with such publications,
gives no source for this information. Until I can find a reliable documentary
source, I remain doubtful.

Timothy J. Keegan in his book, Colonial South Africa and the origins of the
racial order, statest that: Antonio Chiappini, an Italian raised in England,
whose sister was married to the Irish peer Lord Newborough, and who initially
arrived at the Cape en route to India where he had been commissioned to
decorate the ceilings of Government House in Calcutta. This does not exactly
chime with Chiappini's own statement (above) that he arrived at the Capeon his
return from Calcutta, and no source is provided, at least in the Google Books
version. (Colonial South Africa and the origins of the racial order, by Timothy
Keegan, 1996, Leicester Univ. Press)
