Corona de la nobleza Briffa
Ancient and noble family from the Isle of Malta, of clear and ancestral virtue, that has worldwide spread, over the centuries. The two main branches went one to Italy and one to Spain. The one that went to Spain settled in Valencia. Crispo Bárbaro, in his "Nobiliario" of 1883, quotes a Mrs. Carmen Briffa, daughter of E. Briffa and political sister of the baron of Benuarrat. Many family members have distinguished themselves in the Orders of Santiago, Calatrava, Alcántara and Montesa; others were also part of the Royal Chancery of Valladolid and Granada.

to Italy, settled in Sicily. Here, this family, in all ages, always stands out, thanks to the prominent figures, which gave birth, in the public service, in the liberal and ecclesiastical professions and in the military service. Among these, without undervalue the omitted, we would like to mention: Giacomo, landowner, flourishing in 1521; Pietro, canon, theologian and apostolic commissioner, flourishing in Palermo, in 1532; Agostino, doctor in both laws, flourishing in Palermo, in 1613; Benedetto, royal notary in Messina, flourishing in 1636; Tommaso, doctor in "utroque jure", living in Palermo, in 1641; Gio. Batta, military man, living in 1657, Fr Luigi, of the Order of Preachers, living in Messina, in 1682; Pietro Antonio, praetorian judge of Palermo; Giacomo, captain of arms, living in Palermo, in 1719; Tommaso Maria, notary in Palermo, living in 1727; Filippo, juror in Messina, living in 1732; Giovanni, lieutenant of the Royal Army; Giusto, ambassador to the Court of Sicily, in the East, flourishing in 1811. Family names so old, without any doubt, honour not only the 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 persons.
