“Neygo Chiantar fu’ Giurato nel 1455 come si cava da’ libri della regia Cancellaria, e nelle scritture della nostra Citta’ all’ anno 1512 si fa’ memoria d’un Giovanni de Cantore (cosi era scritto in Latino questo cognome) se li da’ il titolo dei nobile. Possede’ questa famiglia molti poderi in Malta, e particolarmente it territorio in quelle balze dell’ Isola, che sono esposte al mezzo giorno, onde fortironi il medesimo nome di Gebel cioe’ Monte di Chaintar, Si estinse un ramo, ch’ era il principale, non sono molt’ anni nel Dottor Federico Chiantar; quindi venuta tutta l’eredita’ di Mario suo padre, e dell’ Avolo Federico nella sorella Girolama, questa’ poi ordino’, che fusse impiegata nella fondatione d’un Monistero per le fanculle del medesimo cognomen, istituendone erede universale la venerabile Confraterrnita’ della Carita, con l’istesso peso. Ma per le difficolta’ incontrate, fu’ finalmente dal Sommo Pontefice applicata la rendita, che importa piu’ di scudi 400, ogno anno al Religioso Monistero di S. Maria Madalena.” (From Abela’s “Della Descrittione di Malta del Commendatore Abela” (1647))
