The Surname De Berardinis originated in Berard, Francehttps://www.google.com/maps/place/B%C3%A9rard+Franceemail@example.com,5.3233165,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x877a35aa16d09dbe!8m2!3d45.0275879!4d5.3233165 1100 A.D. Prior to this, the name was from Germanic origins as the word berard or bernard means hard bear or noble bear. The family De Berardinis arrived in Theramo from L'Aquila in the early 14th century. Its translation states that the noble family dai de Berardinis were involved as regional and town magistrate, with a strong interest in science and astrology. The Family Coat of Arms consists of 3Ã—6 pointed stars in silver on blue background in opposing corners and 3 erupting volcanoes in gold with red flame in opposing corners. The original document supplied for this information by Signior Marco Giuseppe de Berardinis of Sydney, Australia who is current custodian of the original document dated c. 14th ventury and is titled " Frater " of the Australian Branch of the Ordo De Berardinis Benevolent Society and Treasurer of the VADA Foundation. The family traced back to Germany (earliest records) in the 6th century A.D. Then in 1100 A.D. settled in Berard, France (It is believed the town was named Berard meaning "Noble Bear" in German.), it is there certain family members were Knighted and given the title " De Berard ". In 1134 the Ordo De Berard (benevolent society) was created in which the family organisation sent constituents into Italy, Spain, Portugal and England. These constituents were given specific trades to learn and bring back to Berard, however, a split in the family from Portugal led to the separation of certain constituents. A separate constituent of soldiers joined with the Coupier family in France to aid in the crusades, they later settled in Napoli, Ischia, Florence and Teramo. In the late 12th century to early 13th century, the Italian arm of De Berard studying in the Roman Catholic Church were part of the Apostolic Nuncio one of which was eventually appointed Bishop and later Archbishop to oversee a diocese in the greater Abruzzi Provence. With this appointment, the name went from De Berard to adding the name extension -ignis in Latin, meaning fire, the French preferring inis in ode to Irish Proto Celtic meaning standing in water or island hence the reference to the volcanoes in the coat of arms and the long-time allegiance to the families of L'aquila. Adding to the story and origins I will leave the chronological beliefs that are corrected by finding new data. This I find is a more honest approach and in some instances , exciting ! In further study of this particular family shield we have tracked the meaning of its symbology. Whilst the exact origins are not known, through basic documentation and family stories we correlate with the symbols on the shield and find more interesting possibilities. In relation to the 3 x 6 pointed stars we have found a reference to the town of Erbach in Germany. Reference here : Erbach im Odenwald We know the name was originally Germanic in origin so it would be plausible that some of its early history would reside in Erbach. The other reference is with the 3 erupting volcanoes, there is a very similar shield bearing the 3 erupting volcanoes, the supporting decorations and a similar crown. Reference here: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Volcanoes_in_heraldry The first two shields have erupting volcanoes very similar to the volcanoes found in the De Berardinis Crest. It could be postulated that a very significant part of the origins of the De Berardinis family started in a town called Vasteras in Sweden. Based on records shown in this book. FÃ–RSÃ–K TILL BESRRIFNM â€“ pdf link here: http://access.bl.uk/item/pdf/lsidyv3de5f27f On pages 198 and 284 are references to town and other historical data. The first sentence roughly translated on page 198 is as follows. " Westeras (Arosia), county governor and bishop, suburban area, located below 59 Â° 36' lat, northwest from Stockholm, " The difference in Crown is significant, the De Berardinis crown symbolises nobility and possibly other ranks depending on how you read it. The crown atop the Westeras shields show kingship and other political / religious strains. One might postulate that the very earliest constituents were dispatched from Vasteras to Germany and thence to France to create trade routes.
Palazzo De Berardinis in Canzano Italy
FAMILY and PALACE "DE BERARDINIS "in CANZANO From the documents in the municipal archives we have a historical reconstruction of the presence of the family De Berardinis in Canzano. The anti who documents of private houses they are not always available and the Parrocchial archive and has only the registers of births and gods dead from the 1700s, therefore we tried to rebuild the presence of the De Berardinis with the few documents that are presented below. From these and from the oral stories of the population we see the great importance of the De Berardinis family in the life of the populace, for knowledge in cultures, agricultural products, magistrate, security and for the correctness shown in the Management of the Public Administration. We begin the examination of the following documents. "Book of Accounts" of the University of Canzano from March 1791 to August 1793. Historical Records of the University of Canzano (in Italian)
During the prehistory, the Canzano area was almost certainly inhabited. It is suggested by the discovery of finds as arrowheads in flint found between Canzano and Castellalto. Its territory was inhabited by the Pretuzi people, who probably had a fortified seat here. This hypothesis could be proved by the documentation relating to the nearby town of Gerenzano, which shows the presence of an active necropolis between the ninth and fourth centuries BC. The excavations, which took place in the years 1929â€“30, brought to light burials and funerary objects. In later times he referred to the Roman municipium of Interamnia Praetutianorum, or today's Teramo. Canzano appears, later, cited in the Catalogus Baronum, dated 1150, and in the Bullarium Capituli aprutini saeculorum XIII and XIV published by Francesco Savini (Romae, 1914). In the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, it was a fief of the Acquaviva family and the "da Canzano" family. In modern times it was a fief of the Alarcon y Mendoza, lords of the Sicilian Valley. In the early nineteenth century, Canzano is described by Luigi Ercole in his Dictionary: "A land located at the top of a high hill, which is a hard Rocky boulder, between the two rivers Tordino and Vomano. The air is healthy, but diluted by its elevation. It is distant to the North-West from Teramo five miles. The territory is very fertile especially with wheat, wine and excellent fruit. It is Baronial Earth of the First Division composed of 321 souls. Fief of the family Alarcon y Mendoza, Diocese Aprutina: to whose government are several Casali, and three Villas. The first called St. Martin of souls 229. The second St. Mary of souls 241; and the third Valley of souls 297. These houses then make up 526. In unum anime 1614.Â» (Luigi Ercole, Canzano, in the Topographical Alphabetical Dictionary of the Province of Teramo, Teramo, Berardo Carlucci, 1804, pp. 20â€“21.) Di Canzano is the De Nigris family, whose origins date back to the 16th century. Other families to remember are the De Martinis; the Contrisciani, noble family of which, according to accurate research, it is certain that he fought in the fourth crusade (see notes) alongside the armies of the De Berardinis family, ; the Santarelli; the De Sanctis of Castelbasso (Baroni di Penna Sant'Andrea and Cerreto, of distant Ortonese origin and related to the Leopardi), currently represented by the baron de Sanctis Martellacci and by the baroness Ettorina de Sanctis in the counts Rosati di Monteprandone; the Della Noce; the Ronci da Atri. The noble family De Berardinis, whose proven origins date back to the 14th century and whose building is still visible in Via Roma, Palazzo De Berardinis were attributed to saving the town of Canzano from attack in the mid 13th century and leaving a regiment of troops to ensure the safety of the inhabitants. Palazzo De Berardinis is currently owned by the Municipality handed to them in the mid-1980s by the local De Berardinis family who asked that the building be restored and used specifically to promote arts and culture unique to the town.
