La famiglia Franchina è assai antica e nobile e i nomi dei suoi componenti si trovano soprattutto ricordati in contratti di acquisto di terre e case. Annovera questa illustre casata personaggi di elevate virtù, ma la penuria delle scritture in quegli antichi secoli ci priva di quelle curiosità più nobili, che si possono desiderare. Si hanno notizie del XIII secolo, Giacomo Franchina maestro d’armi nella signoria di Morrone al seguito di Roberto Morrone. Il commendatore G.B. di crollalanza, nella sua opera ” il Dizionario Storico-Blasonico, opera che in vari decenni e con l’aiuto di altri storici ne ha rintracciato l’esistenza veritiera sulla scorta di documenti e ricerche effettuate nei secoli passati. La presenza dell’arma e del motto nella bibliografia documentata della famiglia Franchina ci conferma l’avita nobiltà raggiunta dalla 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. In aduersis festior. . Riguardo a questo cognome abbiamo ritrovato ulteriori informazioni storiche in altri archivi. Purtroppo in lingua originale Inglese. : The Last Name of FRANCHINA in its many forms throughout Europe was primarily extrapolated from the Old French word ‘franceis’ an ethnic name for a Frenchman. The name was very familiar to 13th and 14th century documents. St. Francis of Assissi (1181-1226) was the Italian religious founder of the Franciscan Order, born in Assisi, the son of a wealthy merchant. He was remarkable for his happiness and love of life, and although he joined a military expedition, he was halted by a dream and returned to devote himself to the care of the poor and sick. He was canonized by Pope Gregory IX in 1228, and in 1980 was designated patron saint of ecology. He was actually baptised Giovanni, but was nicknamed Francisco because his father was absent in France at the time of his birth. French, or rather Norman French, was the language of the aristocracy and the upper classes in England at the time stable last names were being developed, it is therefore not surprising that many of our well-known family names are extrapolated from French words. Originally only Christian or personal names were used, and although a few came into being during the 10th century, last names were not widely used until much later, when people started to realize the prestige of having a second name. Aother noble of the name was FRANCIS of Poaola or St. FRANCESCO de Paula (1416-1507) the Italian Franciscan monk, and founder of Minim friars, born in Paola in Calabria. Of poor parents, he retired to a cave at 19 and was soon joined by others. He founded his order in 1436. Communities were established throughout Europe, but not in the British Isles. Louis XI of France summoned FRANCESCO to his death-bed, and Charles VIII and Louis XII built him convents at Plessis-les-Tours and Amboise. He died at Plessis on Good Friday, and was canonized in 1519. His feast day is 2nd April. Over the centuries, most people in Europe have accepted their Last Name as a fact of life, as irrevocable as an act of God. However much the individual may have liked or disliked the Last Name, they were stuck with it, and people infrequently modified them by personal choice. A more common form of variation was in fact involuntary, when an official change was made, in other words, a clerical error….
