Where did the Spanish Delatorre family come from? What is the Spanish Delatorre family crest and coat of arms? When did the Delatorre family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Delatorre family history?

Noble surnames, such as Delatorre, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the Spanish people. The original bearer of the name Delatorre, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful region of Spain. In Spain, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules and during the late Middle Ages, names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate. The Delatorre family originally lived in the place named Torres. There are many towns and villages in Spain that are named Torres, but the most famous are in the provinces of Andalucia, Oviedo in the Principality of Asturias, Burgos in Castilla-Leon, Lerida in Catalonia, Zaragoza in Aragon, and Navarra. The place-name is of Latin origin and it emerged during the Roman occupation of the Iberian Peninsula.
