Hi, my name is Jose Antonio Bellina, l am a Peruvian living in Canada. My family is searching for the first Bellina who arrived in Peru and we have information that he could be Anton Skupiewski Baron of Bellina, who fought with Napoleon"s "Grande Armée" and after the defeat in Waterloo he went first to New York and was contacted by an Aide de Camp of Argentinian General José de San Martin. He went to Argentina and and participated in all the campaign,that culminated with the Independence of Peru. He died in the north of my country in an advanced age.
All the Bellinas in Peru are members of the same family, the are no new arrivals from others countries like Italy. Could yo send more information of this historical person and if is it possible some portrait.
Many thanks
Jose A. Bellina

Many thanks for your interest. I am sure that I am going to have more information about this person in this forum. The information that I have been able yo collect in Argentina and Peru show a person of unyielding character and little discipline, but in the other hand, a very good soldier. Regards,
JA Bellina

It is possible that the first part of your surname (Bellina) derives from the coat of arms known in Poland as Belina. My suspicion is based on the fact that one of the families who use this coat of arms is the Skupiewski family. I also found a Polish opera singer who used the same name of Belina Skupiewski. The origins of this noble family are traced to the medieval Czech Kindom, later with the baptism of Poland accepted from the Chechs this family moved to Poland and people bearing this coat of armes could be found in Krakow, Sandomierz and Sieradz regions. http://www.wladcy.myslenice.net.pl/Pols ...
