Da Bergamo si trapiantò in Cremona nel XIII secolo, ed ebbe per capostipite un Orfeo che esulò dalla patria per le intestine discordie. Da questo ramo ebbe origine quello che fiorisce tuttora in Romanengo, e l’altro che nel XV secolo si stabilì in Casalmaggiore, il quale si spense insieme alla linea principale di Cremona sullo scorcio del XVIII secolo. Gli Agosti ànno dato a Cremona 15 decurioni, molti scienziati e letterati, frà quali è celebre Antom Maria Agosti il più elegante poeta latino dle XVI secolo. Tali sono i principii, che da sopracitati Autori si diedero a questa famiglia, ma per esser questo fatto assai remoto, e d’historia molto lontana, lasciamo perciò a più eruditi delle sacre antichità, e dell’historie l’investigarne il suo certo principio. Quel che però di certo habbiamo, è che la casata per la loro antichità, e splendore, e per virtù militare, carrichi così laicali, come Ecclesiastici, e per ogno altro preggio di Cavalleria nobilissimi si scorgono, e crebbero un tempo in tanto numero, e furono sì magnifici, e generosi nelle fabbriche, e in edificar palaggi, e ville per loro habitatione in detta Città, che per ciò diedero il nome ad una intiera comarca, e strada detta fin hora della casata..

Purtroppo in lingua originale Inglese. : The earliest known instance of this name AGOSTA was St. Aurelius Augustinus, also known as Augustine of Hippo (354-430) the greatest of the Latin church fathers. He was born in Tagaste in Numidia which is modern Tunisia. His father was a pagan but he was brought up a christian by his devout mother Monica. After living a fairly racy youth, he embraced christianity fully, and was baptised, together with his son, by St. Ambrose in the year 386. His monumental opus was the City of God which he wrote between 412-27. His namesake St. Augustine was the first archbishop of Canterbury circa. 596. He was prior of the Benedictine Monastery of St. Andrew in Rome, when in 596, he was sent with forty other monks by Pope Gregory I. to convert the Anglo-Saxons to Christianity.

In the Middle Ages heraldry came into use as a practical matter. It originated in the devices used to distinguish the armoured warriors in tournament and war, and was also placed on seals as marks of identity.
