[1] All the slibings, Arthur, Maria, Alfred, George, Anna May, Elizabeth, Evelyn Barbaro Sant. All style Marchese and Marchesa since the 2nd Marchese had a third letters patent where the title extended to all male to male descendants the style of Marchese di San Giorgio 1792. Also check the St George family ancestry whom are senior descendants of the Barbaro family of Malta today in the 21st century, [Link].

First and second Grant – created 1778 and then again in 1779 by the Grand Master Emanuele de Rohan Polduc of Malta – The title of Marchese di San Giorgio was granted by patent on the 6th September 1778, by Grand Master Rohan, to Carlo Antonio Barbaro without any mention of sons, heirs, and successors of the grantee. The operative part of the patent of creation runs thus:- Tibi Nobile D. Carolo Antonio Barbaro tribuimus, concedimus, et donamus, hujusmodi titulo insignimus ac Marchionem dicti Pheudi Sancti Georgii constituimus et ita nominari posse et debere The aforesaid Marchese Carlo Antonio Barbaro, after the dignity had been conferred upon him, considering that the grant was limited to himself alone, applied to the Grand Master praying that it might at least be extended to his first-born son. Grand Master Rohan, by a rescript dated the 2nd February 1779, acceded to the petitioner’s request in the following terms: Fiat prout petitur. It appears that the Marchese Carlo Antonio Barbaro did not file any other application. In view of this, it follows that Carlo Antonio Barbaro should be listed as the first Marchese di San Giorgio and that his first-born son (Gioacchino Ermolao) should be listed as the second and last Marchese di San Giorgio (1779). In fact, according to the 1878 report, it appears that it was the Marchese Gioacchino Ermolao Barbaro, in whose favour only the grant had been extended, applied to the Grand Master for the extension of the title to all of his descendents in perpetuum. His application was complied with by a rescript of the 5th June 1792. See: Correspondence and Report of the Commission appointed to enquire into the claims and grievances of the Maltese Nobility, May 1878, presented to both Houses of Parliament by Command of Her Majesty (C.-2033.) Thus it follows that enumeration should be as follows: Gioacchino Ermolao Barbaro (c 1760-1844), 2nd and last Marchese di San Giorgio (by virtue of a rescript of 1779), 1st Marchese di San Giorgio (by virtue of a rescript of 1792). According to the aforesaid report of 1878, “no proof or document whatsoever” was produced concerning the claim of “Venetian Patrician”. Consequently, this claim was disallowed.

Third Grant – 1792 by the Grand Master Emanuele de Rohan Polduc of Malta – According to the 1878 Report, Gioacchino Ermolao Barbaro applied to the Grand Master for the extension of the title granted in 1778 and extended in 1779, to all of his descendents in perpetuum. His application was complied with by a rescript of the 5th June 1792. There is clearly no remainder regulating ulterior transmission by the rules of primogeniture. Instead the remainder (made on a rescript) is very wide and extends to all of Gioacchino Barbaro’s descendants. In the other parts of the afore-said Commissioner’s Report, this conclusion is very clear. In fact the Report at paragraphs 41 to 57 says Thus the Marchese Barbaro had requested and obtained that the title should be extended to at least his first born son, who subsequently applied for and obtained a further extension for all his descendents in perpetuum (#59, 60). The Marchese Mallia Tabone had likewise prayed that his title should be made to extend after his death to his male descendents successively, and in default of male issue to his female descendents, and had obtained from the Grand Master an extension in favour of his first born male descendents only (#68). Similarly, the same Report at paragraphs 62-66 says The terms of the grant are similar to those of the preceding patents granted to Barone Azzopardi and to Marchese Barbaro, containing no provision for the descent of the title to sons, heirs, descendents, and successors of the grantee. The two preceding grants, as we have already remarked, were by the same Grand Master taken to be personal, and as such, they were extended on an application of the grantees themselves, either to their first-born son exclusively, or as in the instance of Marchese Barbaro, to all their descendents for ever. See: Correspondence and Report of the Commission appointed to enquire into the claims and grievances of the Maltese Nobility, May 1878, presented to both Houses of Parliament by Command of Her Majesty (C.-2033.) In view of this, it follows that there is a plurality of Marchesi di San Giorgio, that is to say more than one person enjoying the title at the same time!The question that remains is whether ‘all descendants’ here means exactly what it says or whether there are some principles of interpretation which moderate a wide interpretation, that is to say whether the title of Marchese di San Giorgio as extended in 1792 can in fact be transmitted to females descended from Carlo Antonio Barbaro, or to males claiming from Carlo Antonio Barbaro through a female line. The aforesaid 1878 report answers this question of interpretation where the Commissioners pointed out. The claimant lastly contends that the diploma and the rescript must be extensively construed; for although it is a legal maxim, Privilegia sunt stricte interpretanda, the privileges, however, granted by a sovereign authority, and which do not act to the prejudice of third parties, are susceptible of a wide and liberal interpretation. Although this is admitted by the common opinion of civilians, yet that principle holds good with regard to those privileges which are granted by the sovereign’s mere motion (moto proprio) and not at the request of the party concerned (Jasonii Comment. Quoted by Altograd. Consilia Con. 71, No. 9, 10, 11, and by many other legal writers). Now as a general rule, patents of nobility in Malta were granted by the Grand Masters at the request of the grantee, and it was moreover upon an application by Barone Azzopardi that the rescript of 1778 was issued. It is likewise a settled opinion that, when the patent of creation does not contain the expression motu proprio, the grant is taken to have been made at the request of the party concerned. (See:- Correspondence and Report of the Commission appointed to enquire into the claims and grievances of the Maltese Nobility, May 1878, presented to both Houses of Parliament by Command of Her Majesty (C.-2033.) (Paras. 41-57). There are many other arguments which militate against construing the 1792 rescript in favour of ‘mere’ females and/or ‘mere’ male descendants claiming through a female line.

Nobile Persia de Fiore ancestry;

1. Nobile Vittorio del Fiore, Printer in Malta, married 1605 Valletta to Petrisa Metaxi of Greece, with issue. 

1.1. Magifico e Nobile (Pompeo) Gaspare del Fiore, (1620 – 1682), (Granted in 1642 by the Grand Master Lascaris exclusive rights to run a printing press. This kept going within the family until the mid 18th century and were considered as Barons by the Grand Masters since Lascaris), Pompeo de Fiore, a Sicilian, entered the foray. It was he who introduced the first printing press to Malta in 1642. De Fiore was not a printer himself, but was the owner of several properties; and also provided the Order with its intake of fresh bread from his bakery at Old Bakery Street in Valletta, which was bombed during WWII. He was in close contact with influential members of the Order who were able to help him avoid paying hefty fines as well as receive compensation upon several tenements of his properties in Floriana being pulled down because they were deemed a danger to the new fortifications. His three daughter were also accepted as nuns in the Order’s convent of St. Ursula. In June 1642, Fiore submitted a petition to the Grand Master to operate a printing press from the premises in the bakery. He also asked for a monopoly over printing in Malta for himself and his successors, and for his employees to be exempted from performing military duty. Lascaris approved all requests and signed the required license provided that all manuscripts be submitted to the grand master’s censor. In fact, it was the question of censorship that led to the printing press’ early demise. It was Fiore’s wish that the person appointed by the Grand Master to carry out the duty of censor in the Order’s name should be the Vice-Chancellor. He would have to perform his duty as censor together with the Inquisitor, whose censorship mechanism over the local press went back even before the issue of the license by Lascaris and the actual setting up of the press. On March 8, 1642, de Fiore was summoned by the Inquisitor Giovanni Battista Gori Pannellini to take a solemn oath as required by the Council of Trent. On April 19, Cardinal Barberini on behalf of the Congregations of the Holy See informed the Inquisitor in Malta that censorship was to be his prerogative. A three-way struggle ensued between the secular, the inquisitorial and the diocesan over the control of the press, and continued over a number of years. This means that the Order did not encourage any further development as its Grand Master had no control over it. As a result, very few works were published and its output came to an end in 1655. Fiore’s exclusive rights to run the printing press came to an end at the same time and the family was elevated to nobility. Another 100 years had to pass before an agreement which settled the thorny question of censorship (or did?) was reached by the Holy See and the Order. In the meantime, all printing requirements were printed abroad. A State press eventually started operating in 1756 after the imprimatur issue was settled in 1746. The 1756 press has survived to this day as the Government Printing Press, being the oldest printing establishment in Malta! Reference: J.F, Grima ‘Printing and Censorship in Malta 1642-1839’.

2.2.1. Dr. Vincenzo Bonavita JUD, married 1775 at Porto Salvo to Maddalena Gatto, with issue. Dr Carlo Antonio Bonavita, JUD. 1st Count of San Paolino d’Aquilejo, (Cr:1819 by Two Sicilies), There is no record nor any claim whatsoever of the 1819 title of Conte di San Paolino d’Aquilejo in the records of the 1878 Commission. This is because the date of creation of this title is not before the annexation of Malta to the British Dominions. It should be remembered that the purpose of that report (as the report reads) was to identify those titles which were granted or recognized by the sovereign authorities of Malta during the Government of the Knights of Saint John. Some may argue that this title is not one of those titles “recognised by the British Monarch”. That argument is flawed because the purpose of the 1878 Commission was not to ‘recognize’ but to ‘identify’ those titles which had already been granted or recognized during the Government of the Order (1530-1798). This is better explained by the terms of reference to the Commissioners that ‘the Secretary of State for the colonies decided that the heads of the families who, before the annexation of Malta to the British Dominions, obtained tiles of nobility, should in accordance with a precedent during the administration of the late Governor, Sir Henry K. Storks, have precedence of the Chamber of Commerce, and in order to ascertain (etc)’. In this case, the title of Conte di San Paolino d’Aquilejo is simply not one of those titles that was obtained during the Government of the Order and does not in any way diminish its validity. See: Correspondence and Report of the Commission appointed to enquire into the claims and grievances of the Maltese Nobility, May 1878, presented to both Houses of Parliament by Command of Her Majesty (C.-2033.): see letter of Chief Secretary to Government to Commissioners dated March 8, 1877 (page 52). In addition, had this family enjoyed a title during the Government in Malta of the Order, and even if no claim whatsoever was made during the 1878 Commission, they would still in the words of Governor Straubanzee be able to enjoy precedence:- ‘At all events if there are more ‘Titolati’ they are at liberty at any time to prove their claims, and take the precedence to which they are entitled’. .
