Do i read Picinino on the blade ?
Gyngell registered a Frederico Piccinino in the XVI century and a Frederico Picinino in the XVII century, from Milan; were they two of a family ?

Yes Fernando
Frederico Picinino ( i see only one c ) but the style is more likely og the late 16 th century :
with a pommel of type 32 ( 1570-1625)

inner guarde of type 30 ( 1590-1610)
the hilt of type 74 ( 1545-1620)
so my guess 1590-1610
Best
