CENSATO | CENZATO

Censed, which would seem extinct in Italy, is of Vicentine origin, perhaps of Chiampo, it could be a dialectal form of the surname Cenzato which is specific of the Vicenza area, of Chiampo, Arzignano, Trissino and Montecchio Maggiore, it could be a nickname and derive from the medieval word censatus (surveyed, subject to taxes), but, most probably, it should be typically Venetian patronymic forms, where the suffix in -ato stands for son of, a Censo or Cenzo, apheretic form of the name Vincenzo, second this hypothesis would be the family of a son of someone called Vincenzo.
