    Notes 
    • The Istanbul city directory lists a Stamati Agelasto, fabric merchant, 1881-1885, 45-46 Validé Han, Istanbul and an S. Agelasto & Co., merchants, 9G Millet Han, Galata.
    • Residence: 1855-1867 & 1881-1885, Constantinople, Turkey/Byzantium; until 1897, Athens, Greece/Hellenes
    • Based on the accounting records of St John Church, Georgiadis makes an alphabetical list of Chiot enterprises [of Constantinople] that sponsored the Church in the time from 1843 to 1880. "Stamatios M. Agelastos" is listed.
    • In a document of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, dated 27 April 1871, Stamatios M. Agelastos is mentioned by Georgiadis as member of the Administration Board of the Panaghia Church in Stavrodromion, Constantinople.
    • In a memorandum from a general meeting of the St John community, dated 1 Apr 1865, Georgiadis says that "S. M. Agelastos" is among the community members present.
    • In his book George Zarifi says that Stamati helped finance the university studies of three nephews, the sons of George Nicolopoulos and Athena Psomadis.
    • According to Zarifi the time when George Nicolopoulos sent his 3 sons to his brothers-in-law in Belgium must have been 1862-1864. That means, Stamati Agelasto had already been living there for years and went on living in Belgium, which conflicts with the information we have from Argenti, namely not only that the marriage took place in Constantinople (1855) but also that all his children were born there between 1857 and 1867. In addition, Georgiadis gives us in his book (p.216) the information:

      In a document of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, dated 27 April 1871, Stamatios M. Agelastos is mentioned as member of the Administration Board of the Panaghia Church in Stavrodromion, Constantinople.

      From Argenti and Georgiadis I would conclude that Stamati and his family actually never left Constantinople. On the other side, Zarifi knows every family, every house, nearly every stone in Constantinople so I think that the Belgium story cannot be an offspring of his imagination. (George Agelastos)
    • Stamati Agelasto purchased 50% title to a bomb vessel named Maroukò [nickname for 'Maria'] and sailing under Ottoman flag. Price: 150 Ottoman gold pounds. Transaction date: 16 May 1860 (Melachrinoudis).
    • Stamati Michael Agelastos & Esmeralda Agelastos are listed in the Belgium (Antwerp) Police Immigration Index, 1840-1885: file number: 45940, page 4, film number: 2234256, digital folder number: 4331460, image number: 00322. [4]

    • In his book George Zarifi says "Catherine Psomadis married an Agelasto in Belgium". He might, though, have meant: an Agelasto [who was living and working] in Belgium. That actually leaves the question unanswered--where exactly the marriage took place--but doesn´t make things less confusing. (George Agelastos)
