First found in Messina, formerly Promontorium or Pelorum, a city of Sicily and capital of the province of Messina. Its history begins in 397 B.C. After a checkered history the Saracens took it in 831, and the Normans in 1061. It was host to the crusaders in 1190. Garibaldi landed in 1860 and it was the last city to be made a part of united Italy. In those ancient times only persons of rank, the podesta, clergy, city officials, army officers, artists, landowners were entered into the records. To be recorded at this time, at the beginning of recorded history, was of itself a great distinction and indicative of noble ancestry. The Island of Sicily attracted many Spanish traders, mercenaries and missionaries. Included was the Castillian family of Albanez.
