La famiglia è chiarissima in molte Città d’Italia. Il Galluppi la vuole originaria di Piacenza, da dove ella venne in Sicilia, condotta da Virgilio, valoroso soldato, sotto l’imperatore Federico II, dal quale ebbe la Castellania d’Alsaro, il feudo di Nissoria ed il casale di Placa di Baione, costituito in Baronia. Miuccio, figlio del detto Virgilio, dopo la morte del padre, si casò giovinetto in Agrigento, ed ivi fondò la sua famiglia. Un Bartolo, messinese, venne nominato nel 1357 credenziere della dogana delle pagliolaie di Messina; un Francesco, da Messina, canonico di Palermo e di Mazzara, cappellano regio, fu nominato nel 1397 rettore della cappella di S. Giovanni Evangelista del Palazzo di Messina; un Lucio fu pretore di Palermo nel 1378-79; un Pietro fu credenziere della gabella del tarì in Catania, nel 1417. I cognomi così antichi rendono decoro non solo alle famiglie ma anche alle città che li hanno accolti; pare siano, infatti, molto riguardevoli i soggetti viventi di questa famiglia che, con tanto decoro, sostentano questo nobile cognome, che ha avuto vari soggetti illustri. . Riguardo a questo cognome abbiamo ritrovato ulteriori informazioni storiche in altri archivi. Purtroppo in lingua originale Inglese. : The Last Name of CATANIA was a Spanish and Italian locational name ‘of Castaneda’ the name of several places in Spain. The name literally meant the dweller beside the chestnut trees. Local names usually denoted where a man held his land, and indicated where he actually lived. Almost every city, town or village existing in the Middle Ages has served to name one or more families. Where a man lived was his means of identification. When a man left his birthplace or village where he had been known, and went elsewhere, people would likely refer to him by the name of his former residence or birthplace, or by the name of the land which he owned. In the 8th century, Spain fell under the control of the Moors, and this influence, which lasted into the 12th century, has also left its mark on Hispanic last names. A few names are based directly on Arabic personal names. The majority of Spanish occupational and nickname last names, however, are based on ordinary Spanish occupational and nickname last names. The origin of badges and emblems, are traced to the earliest times, although, Heraldry, in fact, cannot be traced later than the 12th century, or at furthest the 11th century. At first armorial bearings were probably like last names and assumed by each warrior at his free will and pleasure, his object being to distinguish himself from others. It has long been a matter of doubt when bearing Coats of Arms first became hereditary. It is known that in the reign of Henry V (1413-1422), a proclamation was issued, prohibiting the use of heraldic ensigns to all who could not show an original and valid right, except those ‘who had borne arms at Agincourt’. The College of Arms (founded in 1483) is the Royal corporation of heralds who record proved pedigrees and grant armorial bearings. As the agricultural depression of southern Italy worsened towards the end of the 19th century, people started to escape to the New World. The exodus started in earnest in 1887 with Brazil and other parts of Latin America being the original destinations. By 1893, the economy had improved in the United States and people headed there from Italy in greater and greater numbers. In 1898 there were more Italian immigrants to the USA than from any other state. In the post war era, more than a quarter of Italians left the state for a new life. They joined a flood of immigrants to America which was averaging a million a year in the pre war years….
