Early Origins of the Corse family


The surname Corse was first found in Syracuse a city of Sicily, capital of the province of Sicily. It was an important Greek colony in 734 B.C. Much of its early history deals with the many conflicts for control of the port. There are many remains of this civilization. Claudius Marcellus stormed Syracuse for the Romans in 212. In 665 A.D Heraclius Constans fixed his capital there. It was destroyed by the Saracens in 878. 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.
