The Morones surname is a patronymic form of the personal name Moro.

Morones Early Origins



The surname Morones was first found in Verona, a city in Venetia Italy capital of the province of Verona. This ancient city was the chief town of the Cenomani, a Gaulish tribe and became a Latin town in 89 B.C. It became part of Lombardy (568,) Frankish, Bartolmeo ruled and died in 1304. It is said to be the home of Romeo and Juliet. The city is rich in churches, museums, galleries, paintings, sculptures, statues and monuments. The cathedral was consecrated in 1187. 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 has traced its way from Verona to Genoa, then to Milan, and thence to Mercia in Spain and thence Tortosa and Mallorca.

Morones Spelling Variations
