Sorbera Early Origins



The surname Sorbera was first found in Sicily (Italian: Sicilia), the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea where they held a family seat from ancient times with lands and estates. 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.
