Early Origins of the lazzeri family
The surname lazzeri was first found in Padua (Italian: Padova, Latin: Patavium, Venetian: Padoa), on the Bacchiglione River, capital of the province of Padua. In 1175, the citizens elected the D'Este family as podesta but in 1275 Frederick II took over. The powerful families of D'Este, Camposampiero and Da Romano were the large influences. The city is rich in art, museums and galleries. Many churches exhibit works of the masters. 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. The family name history goes back to 948 a Frenchwoman married Pietro Lanswier a valorous captain for Ludovico II. She held Castle Alfano. Daniele e Palamede was a captain for Phillipe, King of France in 1318.
