Birth*James Egbert Chitty was born on 10 July 1879 at New York City, New York County, New York.1,2,7,3,4,5,6,10,11,8 
(with Parents) Census1880FedUSHe appeared on the 1880 Federal Census of New York City, New York County, New York, in the household of his parents, William John Chitty and Henrietta Frances Haughey.1 
Birth of DaughterHis daughter Helen Chitty was born circa 1915 at New York.2,7,3,4 
Marriage*He married Isabella Hickey, daughter of James Hickey and Margaret Dunn, on 24 August 1918 at Church of St. Francis Xavier, 30 West 16th Street, New York City, New York County, New York. Howard Louis Bailey noted that they had several children, one of whom died from burns as a child, possibly scalded to death on the day they were to visit the Howard Tucker Baileys. I think this was probably their son William. Ruth Cavagnaro says they had seven children: Margaret was the oldest and I don't remenber whether there were 4 boys and 3 girls or visa versa. Helen Chitty, who was shown in the 1920 and 1930 census enumerations as their child, was born about 3 years before their marriage and may have been adopted by the couple or a child from a previous marriage of Bella's who was adopted by James.2,3,9,4,5,12,13,6,14,7,8 
OccupationHe was a teamster on 12 September 1918 at 120 Bank Street, New York City, New York County, New York.5 
Military*He registered for a civilian draft card on 12 September 1918 at New York City, New York County, New York. Family notes state that he served in World War I, possibly in the U.S. Navy, but the 1930 census states he was not a veteran, and I have found no evidence that he was. See the notes at the end of this chronology.15,3,9,5 
Residence*He and Isabella Hickey lived on 12 September 1918 at 254 West 12th Street, New York City, New York County, New York.5

Their children Charles, Margaret, James Edward and Helen were listed as living with them. This is a very confused enumeration. It appears the enumerator jumbled some of the many people living at this address, possibly catching them on the fly and sticking them in at the next available space. The Chittys' listing shows several additional people, some identified as children but who definitely belonged to other families in the building. There is also a man named Wiliam Rhall who is shown as a lodger, but may or may not have been lodging with the Chittys.7 
Birth of SonHis son Arthur Chitty was born on 26 December 1927 at New York.3,4,6,17,20 
Birth of SonHis son Edward James Chitty was born on 16 February 1929 at New York.3,4,6

OccupationHe was a laborer for the IRT subway or a city park cleaner in April 1930 at New York City, New York County, New York.3,9

Notes*Was described in 1918 as being of medium height and weight, with blue eyes and light brown hair. He completed four years of high school. Howard Louis Bailey made the following notes: A real nice guy. Could tell good stories, eg., in WWI in England, Jim met a Lord Chitty who told him how much money they had for the American Chittys, but Jim told him they needed it more and should keep it. Another version: His ship stopped in England during WWI and looked up Lord Chitty (reportedly a relative), who left all his money to the American family. When Jim saw the dire need for help for those in England he told them to give the money to the poor over there. It is also reported that the family over here was doubtful of the story but were united in thought that if it were true, Jim should have been tarred and feathered.5,15,4

Note*Isabella may have been married before James, in which case Hickey is not her maiden name. The 1930 census shows her as married for the first time about 1913, but James as married for the first time about 1919.

Birth of SonHer son Tom Weber was born. 
Birth of SonHer son Edward C. Weber Jr. was born circa 1934 at New York.8,5 
Residence*She lived on 1 April 1935 at New York City, New York County, New York. Her son Edward C. lived with her.5

Note*Bailey family recollections were that Irene Helena Cavagnaro and Charles William Bristol had two sons named Robert and Tommy. Bristol family lore states that Charles had a 2 daughters and a son by his first marriage but none with Irene, although the Bristol family thought Irene's son Eddie was fathered by Charles. It's possible that the Tommy mentioned by the Baileys is actuallyTommy Weber, Irene's son from a previous marriage, and he is so named in Charles' obituary. There is no indication of who the aforementioned Robert might be. Perhaps the 1950 census will shed some light when it is released.

From left, Howard Tucker Bailey, Charles Mills Chitty, and Ralph Landriani, c1914
Father*Pasquale Landriani7,8,9 b. 18 Sep 1862, d. 6 Dec 1934
Mother*Mariantoinia Sodano7,8,9 b. c 1861, d. 9 Dec 1913
Last Edited13 May 2016
Birth*Ralph Landriani was born on 25 December 1886 at Italy.2,3,4,5,7,8,10,9 
(Immigrant) ImmigrationI have not yet confirmed immigration dates for this family.

The 1910 U.S. census states:
1890: Ralph (Pasquale and Marie's eldest), who would have been 4 years old
1891: Pasquale (the father)
1893: Marie (the mother)
1898: Lena Sordonna (Marie's mother), and Pasquale and Marie's children Louis and Josephine

On his naturalization petition, Pasquale stated that he immigrated in 1892, leaving Naples, Italy, aboard the ship Neustria on 25 August and arriving in the port of New York on 15 September.
Whether 1891 or 1892, it seems unlikely that Pasquale brought a young child with him but not his wife. It seems more likely that it was as follows:
1891 or 1892: Pasquale
1893: Marie (and possibly one or more children)
1898: Lena (and possibly one or more children.)2,9,11 
Residence*He lived on 23 November 1907 at 31 Downing Street, New York City, New York County, New York.7 
Occupation*He was a driver on 23 November 1907.7 
Marriage*He married Violet Chitty, daughter of William John Chitty and Henrietta Frances Haughey, on 23 November 1907 at City Hall, New York City, New York County, New York. The ceremony was performed by Harry L. Leverett, an alderman, and the witnesses were Minnie Goynes and Joseph Foti.1,2,3,12,13,6,5,7 
OccupationHe was a truck driver on 21 April 1910.2 
Census1910FedUS*He and Violet Chitty appeared on the 1910 Federal Census of New York City, New York County, New York, at 45 Horatio Street, enumerated 21 April 1910.2 
Birth of DaughterHis daughter Mildred M. Landriani was born circa 1911 at New York.3,12,13,14 
OccupationHe was the owner of a trucking business on 8 January 1920.3 
Census1920FedUS*He and Violet Chitty appeared on the 1920 Federal Census of Brooklyn, Kings County, New York, at 91 Cornelia Street, enumerated 8 January 1920. Their daughter Mildred M. was listed as living with them.3 
Occupation*In 1925, the New York City Directory listed Ralph Landriani as treasurer and Violet Chitty as president of the Landriani Trucking Company, 28½ Front Street, New York City, New York County, New York.15 
Residence*He and Violet Chitty lived in 1925 at 515 East 79th Street, New York City, New York County, New York.15 
Census1930FedUS*He and Violet Chitty appeared on the 1930 Federal Census of Brooklyn, Kings County, New York, at 608 88th Street, enumerated 16 April 1930. Their daughter Mildred M. was listed as living with them.12 
OccupationHe was the owner of a trucking business on 16 April 1930.4 
Death*He committed suicide on 6 May 1935 at Brooklyn, Kings County, New York. Howard Louis Bailey, who knew the family, stated that after Ralph fell backwards down a flight of stairs he signed himself into a hospital but apparently did not regain his former condition. He later committed suicide by putting his head in an oven while the family was asleep.16,10,5 
Notes*Howard Louis Bailey recalled that Ralph was with Adams Express, then started his own transportation business, possibly in the food industry. He was a very kind man who was particularly fond of Margaret Chitty Bailey and her cooking.16
