Con RR. Diploma del 30 giugno 1692 furono concessi i privilegi di cavalierato e di nobiltà a favore di un Niccolò Coni, dei suoi figli e discendenti, per linea mascolina. Nella qualità di nobili, i discendenti di questa famiglia, intervennero alle Corti del Regno e furono compresi negli Elenchi compilati nel 1822 dai RR. Prefetti e trasmessi alla R. Segreteria di Stato e di guerra, in occasione dell’assunzione al trono del re Carlo Felice. Ai maschi spettano i titoli di cavaliere e nobile, con la qualifica di don; alle femmine quello di nobile con la qualifica di donna. Fu costume delle più antiche famiglie, le quali dopo la caduta del Romano Impero, in quella “inondatione de’ Barbari”, avendo i loro cognomi, così come i loro beni, smarrito e restati solo con semplici nomi, trarre di nuovo i loro cognomi, e il loro casato dai nomi dei propri paterni, e dei maggiori.. Riguardo a questo cognome abbiamo ritrovato ulteriori informazioni storiche in altri archivi. Purtroppo in lingua originale Inglese. : This Last Name of CONI was brought into England from France in the wake of the Norman Invasion of 1066. It was an occupational name for an examiner of ale. During the Middle Ages the manufacture and fermenting of wines and ale was necessary in every small village. Ale was the people’s food in liquid form, and was consumed by everybody at all times. The extreme poverty of the Franciscans when they first settled in London was noted by a writer at the time ‘I have seen the brothers drink ale so sour that some would have preferred to drink water’. In early times each villager usually brewed his own drink although he frequently had to pay the lord of the manor for the honor of using his equipment. In later times the manufacture of ales and wine became an important monastic industry. Surnames can be divided into four categories; place names, occupation names, nicknames and patronymics. PLACE NAMES are the largest group and covers all those names first applied to people who lived in or nearby to a particular place. For example, Grove, Wood, Field, Meadow, and Street are obvious. Occasionally names were taken from obscure villages or hamlets which no longer exist and this can make research confusing. OCCUPATION NAMES cover nearly all trades which existed in the Middle Ages. These are numerous. It does not necessarily follow that such names as King, Duke, Earl and so on mean your ancestors were of noble blood. It is much more likely that such named people worked for the person referred to. NICKNAMES. This is a smaller group but in many ways more interesting. They usually originated as a by-name for someone by describing their appearance, personal disposition or character but which became handed down through the ages and did not apply to their descendants. For instance the name Black would denote a dark man, Little, someone small (or even somewhat ambiguously) someone tall. PATRONYMICS. This group covers all names which derive immediately from the owner’s father. Many christian names which are also last names have, over the years, lost the possessive form but the origin is still the same. Examples of this could be names such as Peter,Thomas, Henry – all names which became both christian and last names over the years…. Noble title: Cavalieri Coat of arms: Di rosso al leone rampante…
