Early Origins of the Demonte family
The surname Demonte was first found in Piedmont
(Italian: Piemonte, Piedmontese and Occitan: Piemont), a territorial division of northern Italy at the foot of the Alps consisting of the provinces of Alessandria, Cuneo, Novara and Turin. Later Aosta and Vercelli were added and still later, Asti. History is related back to 49 B.C. The house of Savoy rose in 1000 A.D. 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. This illustrious family of northern Italy were represented at many locations including Bologna, Modena, Crama, Verona and as far south as Rome. There were many nobility in this senatorial family and significant branches held many estates. They were also a military family.
