Early Origins of the Azzo family
The surname Azzo was first found in Fermo, anciently Firmum, a town in the Italian marches in the province of Ascoli Piceno. Built 246 B.C on a hill on which there was a citadel until 1446. The 4th Roman legion was settled there. It was originally a limestone walled city. The Church of S.Francesco is notable. It came under the papacy in 1550. 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.
