Amato family, Atina

Is anyone aware of the Amato family who emigrated from Atina to Lancashire, UK around the turn of the 19th and 20th century. My great great grandfather was Giuseppe Amato, and he had two sons, Michele (my great grandfather) and Giovanni. He also had a daughter, Giuseppina (known as Pepina). Giuseppe, as far as I know, did not emigrate to England - he is listed on Michele's marriage certificate as deceased. Michele was born around 1880, and married Nunziata (Nancy) Coppola in Manchester. They went on to have three surviving daughters - Maria (my grandmother), Veronica and Elizabeth. Somewhere along the line, the name changed from Amato to Amata as well.
If anyone has any information, please post back.
