Testa

 

This surname should not be confused with another common Atripalda surname,  Festa.  However,  since the handwritten nineteenth century upper case F’s and T’s look very similar,  I may have misassigned a few individuals from one surname into the other.  And even the civil clerks of the time seem to have sometimes confused the two surnames.
