Heraldic trace of family: Marchesiello Ancient and noble Guelph family of Ferrara, originally from Bulgaria, of clear and ancestral virtue, known as Marchesello, Marchesiello or Marcheselli, that has spread worldwide, over the centuries. Descending from the Count Adelardo (XII century), the family split into three major lines, one of which went in Rovigo, the second in Ancona and the third remained in Ferrara. Here some of its members were magistrates of the Twelve Elders and Captains of the People. A Marchesello was made Marquis of the "Marca Anconitana" and left his name to his descendants. Guglielmo M., in the year 795, was appointed Chief Captain. Other branch. Noble family from Bologna. Jacopino in 1257, Rodolfo in 1315 and Michele in 1336 were of the Elders, and the first of them, while supporting that office, received lands for the factory of bridge over the Rhine. Other family. Noble family from Mondovì, in the region of Piedmont.... To be continuedAmong the family members that most stood out, we remember: Alessandro, landowner, flourishing in Mondovì, in 1603; Tommaso, doctor in "utroque jure", flourishing in 1652; Pietro, landowner, flourishing in Mondovì, in 1674; Federico, doctor in "utroque jure", flourishing in Mondovì, in 1686; Camillo, militiaman, living in 1703; Francesco, counselor in Mondovì, florishing in 1716. Family names so old, without any doubt honor not only families but also the cities that welcomed them; seems to be, in fact, very worthy the living members of this family which, with much decorum, carry this noble surname, which has had several illustrious members.
