Don Carlo d’Evoli (1761 Madrid – 1815 Naples) 4th Duca di Castropignano and Duca di Campomele, whose wife had died some years before, worked for the British Government in Valletta, and lived for some time in Palermo in that turbulent period of Franco-British wars, and of the Valletta and Three Cities counter-siege in Malta. Maddalena Vassallo, as his mistress followed him to Palermo and Campomele. The British forces and the Maltese people had just recovered and entered Valletta in September 1800, with the surrender of General Claude-Henri Belgrand de Vaubois and his revolutionary French garrison numbering about 5,000 troops and sailors. Details on Vassallo’s excellent education are unavailable, however Don Carlo d’Evoli may have been largely responsible for this in Malta and possibly in Sicily or Italy between 1801 and 1826 (www. De Vassallo sives d’Evoli family – Libro d’Oro). The name D’Evoli was never adopted in Malta, but was indeed by a daughter of Don Carlo’s in Sicily. Dr Cesare had two Maltese siblings: Carmela, referred to in the baptismal document of his third son Enrico (Harry Snr) in 1843 (d. 1928), as being the child’s godmother, and reportedly Vincenzo, who is also mentioned in another document. He married Gaetana Bugeja (1801-1893), daughter of the musician Paolo Bugeja and of Antonia Pulis, in Valletta in 1829, and they had four surviving offspring: Dr Filippo, Antonia, Nicola and Enrico (Harry Snr.). He graduated as Doctor in both Civil and Canon Law in 1826, but only obtained his warrant in 1836. Meanwhile he was appointed Master of the Italian language at the island’s Lyceum in Valletta. He resided with his family in two different houses in Strada Cristoforo, then in Strada Sant’Ursola in Valle…]; [Times of Malta];  married 1829 at San Paolo, Valletta to Gaetana Bugeja,.
