Early Origins of the Sauro family

The surname Sauro was first found in Palermo (Sicilian: Palermu, Latin: Panormus), a city in Insular Italy, the capital of both the region of Sicily and the Province of Palermo at the foot of Mount Pellegrino, originally a Phoenician colony in the 3rd century B.C. Carthage and then the Saracens in 835 each occupied the city. The Norman period from 1050 was the most important and many ancient ruins exist from that time period. Two city gates still remain. The museum is notable and has many priceless relics. 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. They later became established at Monte San Giuliano.
