Footnote#1: In 1792, both lines of the Testaferrata family, by then subdivided into 4 distinct lines, were confirmed in the Dignity of Patrician of Messina granted to their common patrilineal ancestor Mariano Testaferrata on the 20th December 1553. (SEE: Testaferrata Branch #1  Testaferrata Branch #2 Testaferrata Branch #3Testaferrata Branch #4  ). The Royal Commission (1878) dismissed this title as a mere municipal honour.

 

Footnote#2: The designation of the title Marquis Testaferrata Olivier is a misnomer.  To assert that the title of “Marquis Testaferrata Oliver” was “recognized” in some form or another in 1745 implies that the surname “Testaferrata Olivier” had already been established. On the basis of the genealogical chart, the surname “Testaferrata Olivier” could only have been first established after 1762 (the date of marriage between Testaferrata and Olivier) and that the family could only have been established at least one generation after that marriage. At best this title should be called “Marquis Testaferrata de Noto”.

 

Footnote#3: Many published sources describe the title of “Marquis Testaferrata Olivier” as having been “recognized” and/or “extended” by Grand Master Pinto in 1745 to a title which had been conferred by Victor Amadeus , King of Sicily and Duke of Savoy on 13th July 1717 upon Mario Testaferrata. This is not substantiated by either the 1878 Report nor the 1883 Report.

 

Footnote#4  Gio Paolo Testaferrata Olivier had claimed before the 1878 Royal Commisison both the titles of Marquis of San Vincenzo Ferreri and Marchese Testaferrata. Published sources also show that the above recommendation was tantamount to a recognition by Grand Master Pinto of the title of Marchese granted on the 13th July 1717, to Mario Testaferrata, by Victor-Amadeus, King of Sicily and Duke of Savoy and that such “recognition” brought about the title of “Marquis Testaferrata Olivier” On the other hand, .it is amply documented that when Testaferrata Olivier and Lorenzo Antonio Cassar Desain were later sued by Emmanuele Testaferrata-Bonici-Asciack (Judgment No. 71/1887 of H.M. Court of Appeal dated 8 January 1887), the court upheld Emmanuele Testaferrata Bonnici Asciak’s claim that he was to have the exclusive right to the title granted by Vittorio Amadeo, King of Sicily and Duke of Savoy after the same Testaferrata Olivier and Cassar Desain declared espressamente di essere stato a loro da Sua Maesta` la Regina accordato il titolo che portano, e non aggiungendo alcuna pretensione su quello conceduto da Vittorio Amadeo, in sostanza ammettendo la domanda dell'  attore di essere egli solo, almeno per quanto concerne loro stessi, nel diritto di portare il titolo di Marchese conferito con quel Diploma. The import of this declaration is (a) there is no link whatsoever between the title granted in 1717 and the aforesaid “recognition” of 1745, (b) that there is no recognition by a Grand Master of the 1717 title, (c) Testaferrata Olivier did not base his successful claim on the 1717 title.

 

Footnote#5  By eliminating of the claim to Marchese Testaferrata and being faithful to Gio Paolo’s original claims as described in the 1878 Reports, it follows therefore (unless one were to dare vaunt the claim that Queen Victoria’s act was tantamount to raising Testaferrata Olivier to the English Peerage!!), that the only remaining basis of Testaferrata Olivier’s claim can only be a subformation of the “title” of Marquis of San Vincenzo Ferreri (which in the 1883 report is wrongly described as a Spanish title).

 

Footnote#6  Contrary to the findings of the 1878 and 1883 Reports, a Maltese Court of Appeal did not appear to have any reservations about the claim that all of Mario Testaferrata Robertis's descendants (including those descended in a female line) are equally entitled to the titles of Marchese di San Vincenzo Ferreri and Marchese Testaferrata According to a judgment of 1887 (Judgment No. 71/1887 of H.M. Court of Appeal dated 8 January 1887), the Court of Appeal observed as follows: Che, dallaltro canto, pero’  e’  giusto rimarcare che nella transazione seguita per atti del Notaro Vittorio Giammalvadel 10 settembre 1773 (recte 1772)tra i figli di Don Mario Testaferrata, il primo concessionario del titolo, di cui e’  questione, dopo di avere menzionato solo due titoli di Nobilta’  quello cioe di San Vincenzo Ferreri, e l’ altro di Testaferrata (alledendo a quello conceduto da Vittorio Amadeo) era stato convenuto che tutti i figli con loro discendenti dovessero essere in liberta’  di portare l’ una e l’ atra concessione. That is to say, quite apart from the reservations about the deemed grant of 1745 which purportedly gave rise to the title of Marchese Testaferrata Olivier , it appears that all descendants of Mario Testaferrata (including therefore the members of the Testaferrata De Noto family) are equally entitled to enjoy both titles of Marchese di San Vincenzo Ferreri and Marchese Testaferrata

Footnote#8 In accordance with the 1883 recommendation, ulterior succession (from Gio Paolo Testaferrata Olivier) is limited in favour of the “eldest son”. Females and cadets are therefore excluded from succeeding.
