Da sei generazioni questa Famiglia è in possesso del fregio di Nobiltà, ottenuto colla sua aggregazione al Consiglio nobile di Vicenza; gode la medesima in ragione di feudo di cui nel 1782 è stata con approvazione della Repubblica investita dal Vescovo di Vicenza, le decime di tutta la villa e pertinenze di Montecchiello.

Purtroppo in lingua originale Inglese. : This Italian Last Name of TRAVERSO was a locational name for someone who lived by a bridge or ford, or an occupational name for a gatherer of tolls exacted for the right of passage. The name was primarily extrapolated from the Old French word TRAVERS meaning passage, crossing, and was rendered in ancient documents in the Latin form TRANSVERSARE.

Over the centuries, most people in Europe have accepted their Last Name as a fact of life, as irrevocable as an act of God. However much the individual may have liked or disliked the Last Name, they were stuck with it, and people infrequently modified them by personal choice.
