The linking of occupations to new settlements is quite interesting. Here are some examples which are quite general:
- Those that left Palma in Italy were often travelling street musicians such as organ grinders often accompanied by a monkey,
- Others from Lucca made plaster of Paris statues
- Those from the south of Italy were often unskilled labourers
- Italians in South Wales typically came from the mountainous region of Genoa and Parma.
