Nos Manfreddus Axach Judex annalis curie Civilis Civitatis Malta and Laurentius Farrugius Civitatis et Insularum Maltae et Gaudisii et Reginalis Cammare publicus notarius et testes subscripti ..: ". additions provided by Giovanni Vezzelli Farruggio is another form of the Sicilian surname Ferruggia that comes from the Calabrian voice 'ferrùggia' = ferula (ed. Bacchetta once used to punish schoolchildren).
