Antica famiglia originaria del Voralberg, trapiantata in Italia nel primo quarto del XIX secolo da Francesco-Saverio, il quale si stabilì prima a Legnano, poi a Milano e quindi a Monza, dove impiantò una filatara e tintoria del cotone. Suo figlio, il vivente Alberto-Edoardo, essendosi reso benemerito per cospicue beneficenze alla città di Pordenone, fu fregiato da Sua Maestà il Re Umberto I del titolo di conte, trasmissibile per primogenitura maschile ai suoi discendenti con decreto di motu-proprio 27 agosto 1887. La presenza del motto nella bibliografia documentata della famiglia ci conferma l’avita nobiltà raggiunta della casata. Infatti l’origine del motto risale a circa il XIV secolo e deve essere ricercata in quei detti arguti che venivano scritti sui vessilli o bandiere dei cavalieri, esposti alle finestre delle locande in cui questi alloggiavano, in occasione dei tornei, e durante i tornei stessi. Motto della famiglia: Non fortuna sed virtus. Riguardo a questo cognome abbiamo ritrovato ulteriori informazioni storiche in altri archivi. Purtroppo in lingua originale Inglese. : This German Last Name of AMMAN was an occupational name for administrative official or head of a community owing allegiance to a feudal superior. The name was from an assimilated form of AMTMANN meaning retainer. The Last Name is most common in southern Germany and Switzerland. Occupational last names primarily denoted the actual occupation followed by the individual. At what period they became hereditary is a difficult problem. Many of the occupation names were descriptive and could be varied. In the Middle Ages, at least among the Christian population, people did not usually pursue uniqueized occupations exclusively to the extent that we do today, and they would, in fact, turn their hand to any form of work that needed to be done, particularly in a large house or mansion, or on farms and smallholdings. In early documents, last names frequently refer to the actual holder of an office, whether the church or state. A noble member of the name was Othmar Hermann AMMANN (l879-l965) He was a Swiss born American structural engineer born in Schaffhausen. He emigrated to the United States in l904 to work with the Pennsylvania Steel Company. Later he designed some of America’s greatest suspension bridges, including the George Washington Bridge in New York, the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco and the Verrazano Narrows Bridge in New York which was built in l965. Each in its day had the longest span in the world. The first hereditary last names on German soil are found in the second half of the 12th century, slightly later than in England and France. However, it was not until the 16th century that they became stabilized. The practice of adopting hereditary last names started in the southern areas of Germany, and little by little spread northwards during the Middle Ages.The first hereditary last names on German soil are found in the second half of the 12th century, slightly later than in England and France.
