Negli atti di archivio si trovano scarsissime notizie su questa casata. 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. Il motto era un pensiero espresso in poche parole facente allusione a un sentimento palese o nascosto, a una qualità, a un ricordo storico, per stimolo al coraggio o onore. Era scelta dal capo della famiglia, dal cavaliere entrante in lizza o data dal sovrano al proprio uomo ligio. Motto della famiglia: Habet sua premia virtus.

Purtroppo in lingua originale Inglese. : This Last Name of COLOMB was a metonymic occupational name for a keeper of doves, from the Old French COLOMB. The name was primarily rendered in the Latin form of COLUMBUS. 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. The name was popular among early Christians because the dove was considered to be the symbol of the Holy Spirit. During the Middle Ages, when people were unable to read or write, signs were needed for all visual identification. For several centuries city streets in Britain were filled with signs of all kinds, public houses, tradesmen and even private householders found them necessary. This was an age when there were no numbered houses, and an address was a descriptive phrase that made use of a convenient landmark. At this time, coats of arms came into being, for the practical reason that men went into battle heavily armed and were difficult to recognise. It became the custom for them to adorn their helmets with distinctive crests, and to paint their shields with animals and the like. Coats of arms accompanied the development of last names, becoming hereditary in the same way. In Milan this was the Last Name regularly used for the foundlings taken into the orphanage of St. Catherine. In many parts of central and western Europe, hereditary last names started to become stable at around the 12th century, and have developed and modified slowly over the years. As society became more complicated, and such matters as the management of tenure, and in particular the collection of taxes were delegated to unique functionaries, it became imperative to distinguish a more complicated system of nomenclature to differentiate one individual from another….
