Originaria di Nirano nella provincia di Modena, ammessa alla nobiltà modenese, ferrarese e romana. Antonio dottore, in diritto, fu chiamato a Ferrara da Alfonso II come consultore di camera e gli conferì, insieme a’ suoi nepoti, Bartolomeo ed Orazio i titoli di conte e di cavaliere. Dal suddetto Antonio discende la linea dei conti e marchesi Nigrelli di Ferrara, poichè il di lui figlio Giulio-Cesare fu investito nel 1631 da Vittorio Duca di Savoia della contea di Venaria, mutata in marchesato l’8 feb. 1667. Egli fu giudice dei Savi, ambasciatore ordinario della città presso il Pontefice, e senatore di Roma. Ottavio, capitano in Germania, nel 1662 passò al servizio del Papa; suo figlio Antonio fu cameriere segreto e coppiere di Alfondo IV Duca di Modena; Bartolomeo dott. in leggi, fu a capo del comune di Sassuolo nel 1599, dopo essere stato podestà ducale di Carpi nel 1583..

Purtroppo in lingua originale Inglese. : This Italian and French Last Name of NIGRELLI is a nickname for someone with notably dark hair or complicatedion from Old French ‘noir’. In Spanish the name can be spelt as Negri, De Negri(s) and Nigris. Amongst the many variations of this name it can be spelt as Nier, Negri. A noble member of this name was Ada NEGRI (l870-l945) Italian poet, born in Milan. She became a teacher, wrote socialistic verse and short stories. As the agricultural depression of southern Italy worsened towards the end of the l9th century, people started to escape to the New World.

By l893 the economy had improved in the United States and people headed there from Italy in greater and greater numbers.

They joined a flood of immigrants to America which was averaging a million a year in the pre war years.

With armour encasing the knight from head to foot, the only means of identification was the insignia painted on his shield and on his surcoat, the draped and flowing garment worn over the armour. 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.
