2.1.3.1.4.1.3.

The title granted to Gio Batta Mompalao is mentioned in passing (but as a title of ‘Barone’ instead of ‘Marchese’), by the 1878 Commissioners when these were describing the three classes of titles granted by Grand Master Rohan: the Commissioners described the title as belonging to the class of ‘personal grants’, thus: On this point we must observe that the numerous grants of titles made by Grand Master Rohan may be classed under three different heads; some patents expressly providing for the perpetuity of the title specifically include the children and descendents in infinitum of the person first ennobled; such are the titles we have hitherto considered, and others which will be hereinafter inquired into. Other grants, like that the Commissioners presently considered, only designated the grantees’ names without proceeding further. The patents of the Marchese Barbaro (#58), of the Conte Gatt (#62), of the Marchese Mallia Tabone (#67), and that which conferred on the 23rd October 1783, the title (now extinct) of Barone to Signor Mompalao, fall under this class. 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.)
