The surname Malave was first found in Lombardy (Italian: Lombardia), a territorial, industrialized division of Italy south of the Alps. It is the most political active. Milan is the chief city, followed by Mortera, Pavia and Mantua. Silk is the principal trade. 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.
