Early Origins of the Siniscalchi family
The surname Siniscalchi was first found in Messina (Sicilian: Missina; Latin: Messana), capital of the Italian province of Messina. Its history begins in 397 B.C. After a checkered history the Saracens took it in 831, and the Normans in 1061. It was host to the crusaders in 1190. Garibaldi landed in 1860 and it was the last city to be made a part of united Italy.

To be recorded at this time, at the beginning of recorded history, was of itself a great distinction and indicative of noble ancestry.
