Early Origins of the Boccardi family


The surname Boccardi was first found in Genoa (Italian: Genova), a port on the Gulf of Genoa, capital of the province of Genoa. Genoa is also modernly known as Liguria. In the 4th century B.C it was occupied by the Greeks, destroyed by the Carthaginians in 209 B.C and restored by Rome who made it their headquarters. They survived the Lombard and Carolingan intrusions. Were well known for their naval prowess. Shipbuilding flourished in this natural sea port. Much migration took place to South America pre WWII.

To be recorded at this time, at the beginning of recorded history, was of itself a great distinction and indicative of noble ancestry.
