A quick translation.

Postby MikeSavoca91 » 11 Jun 2007, 17:08

Bonina.

La si vuole originaria di Castroreale, godette nobiltà in Messina, nella quale città vestì, in persona di alquanti suoi membri, la toga senatoria e possedette i feudi di Xiari e Collabascia, comprati da un Guglielmo Bonina, a cui succedette Paolo.

Arma: di nero, al leone d’oro, tenente con le zampe anteriori una spiga d’avena di argento


Could someone tell me what this means? Thank you!

Bonina is a family name
It appears to be an explanation of a feudal rite for this person who lived in the town of Castroreale which enjoyed a noble standing in Messina, where the city endowed a certain number of its members with the senatorial toga and which owned the feudal lands/properties of Xiari and Collabascia, purchased by one Guglielmo Bonina who was succeeded by Paolo.

Arma is the coat of arms which it describes thus:
Black with a golden lion, holding in its front claws a silver ear of wild oats.


Hope that's of some help Mike..
