THIS IS A STARTER PAGE

 

Ancient and very noble Sicilian family, of clear and ancient virtue, spread over the centuries in different regions of Italy. The clear nobility of the family is confirmed by the presence, of its blazon, in the valuable work "The historical-blasonic Dictionary of the extinct and flourishing noble and notable Italian families", of the genealogist Giovan Battista di Crollalanza, published in Pisa in 1886 in three volumes, of over 1400 pages.

 

Moreover, this family, in the unfolding of the decades, has always managed to produce a series of men who have made its name illustrious, in public employment, in liberal and ecclesiastical professions and in military service. Among these, without raising anything to the value of the omitted, contasi:

•  Augustine, doctor of law, flourishing in Messina, in 1509;

•  Girolamo, landowner, flourishing in Messina, in 1510;

•  Pietro Francesco, clear jurist, living in Messina, in 1539;

•  Giuseppe, who served the king of Spain during the Masaniello revolt of 1647

and also:
•  Enrico Dich Scot Douglas
