Italians in England, 1800s

Surnames: Borrini, Brinie
In trying to research my great-grandmother Elsie May Brinie, I stumbled across a note someone had written and attatch to someone I believe to be her father, reguarding Italians in England, and was hoping someone could confirm this or tell me where I can try looking this information up. Here is the note:
"Being Italian in England at this time was not desireable, so Anthony changed it from the original "Borrini." The main family name in the UK was "Borrino," but aliases also included "Borrim" and "Brinie." "
I had been told previously that her father had changed his last name (so "Brinie" is not his official last name) which is why I believe this is him, however I have no proof...
