The Noble Family of Gatto, who held the fief of Deyr il Bniet (1350 (1st grant),1372 (2nd grant), 1397 (investiture)), the fief of Chimesia (1397 (regrant), both fiefs described by Abela as baronies together with the third fief/barony of Bucane (1404 investiture in Abela’s opinion probably referring to an earlier grant of 1372 in favour of the Murina family)

This family is listed as a noble family in “Descrittione di Malta” (1647).
Moreover this family was later to be granted the titles of Barone di Benuarrat (1737), Illustrissimo e Nobile (1737), Conte di Beberrua (1783). In 1878, the possession, then in the Damico family, of the fief of Djar el Bniet together with that of Bucana was regarded as a basis of a title of Barone personal to the holder of those fiefs.

Footnote #1: Historically, no title of Barone di Djar il-Bniet was ever granted in 1350. Nor was there any grant of a title of Barone di Buqana in 1372. To assert that the title of Barone di Djar il-Bniet et Buqana was granted before the 14th century is a fallacy. According to the 1878 Commissioners, the first relevant dates are 1512 (Buqana) and 1725 (Djar il-Bniet and Buqana). Although Abela describes them as baronies in 1647, it was only in 1878 that the title of “Djar il-Bniet and Buqana” was backdated to 1350. - See footnotes below.
Footnote #2: The two fiefs of Diar el Bniet and of Buqana were never granted as titles in the strict sense. However, the holder of these two untitled fiefs (together) was by custom accorded the personal title of barone. Published sources show these fiefs as having been granted in 1350 in favour of Francesco Gatto and 1404 in favour of Guglielmo Murina, as they in fact were. However, it appears that the first time Buqana (alone) was ever referred to as a title (barone) was only in 1512 in favour of Giacomo Arginaldo Inguanez, whilst the first time the holder of both fiefs was referred to as a barone in a legislative act was in 1725 in favour of Marc’ Antonio Inguanez and his wife the baronessa. It appears that no legislative act ever contemplated a barone di Djar il-Bniet. There is therefore only historic reference to a Barone di Buqana (1512) and a Barone di Djar il-Bniet et Buqana (1725). It was only the 1878 Commission which retroactively attributed a date of creation of a title of Barone di Diar el-Bniet et Buqana. (See:- Correspondence and Report of the Commission appointed to enquire into the claims and grievances of the Maltese Nobility, May 1878, presented to both Houses of Parliament by Command of Her Majesty (C.-2033.) (See Report Paras. 91-96). See also http://www.maltagenealogy.com/SME/djarilbniet.html
Footnote #3: The lands of Djar el Bniet (only) were first granted in fief to Francesco Gatto and to the heirs of his body by Louis, King of Sicily (House of Aragon), on the 4th January 1350, by a privilegium given at Messina, the fief having reverted to the Crown after it had been held by Michele Bava.

Cancelleria Regia 1259 -1400: edited by Stanley Fiorini, Malta University Press 1999, page 225, 230), Married 1397 to Paola di Castelli, Heiress of the Barony of Buqana.(Note on Buqana)
1. Nobile Imperia Gatto, married to Antonio Inguanez. Holder of a number of Fiefdoms., with issue. See http://www.maltagenealogy.com/libro%20d'Oro/djarilbnietA.html
2. (illegitimate from his 'slave mistress' Meymuna.) Paola Gatto, married 1502 to Nicolo Gatto, (See Above)
Footnote #1: In 1647, Abela made reference to the the baronia (barony) of Djar il-Bnietas one of the three baronie held by the Inguanez family. See http://www.maltagenealogy.com/libro%20d'Oro/djarilbnietA.html
However, Abela does not indicate how, when, or in whose favour this baronia was created. Historically, no title of Barone di Djar il-Bniet was ever granted in 1350 in favour of the Gatto family. According to the 1878 Commissioners’ Report, the lands of Djar el Bniet (only) were first granted in fief to Francesco Gatto and to the heirs of his body by Louis, King of Sicily (House of Aragon), on the 4th January 1350, by a privilegium given at Messina, the fief having reverted to the Crown after it had been held by Michele Bava. The grant was afterwards confirmed in Malta on the 12th November 1372, by King Frederick, brother of the said King Louis, in favour of Lancea Gatto, son of the above-mentioned Francesco, sub militari servitio unius equi alforati curiae nostrae perinde praestando ; and was once more confirmed by King Martin, at Catania, on the 14th February 1397, in favour of another Francesco Gatto, son of the said Lancea. All of these authentic documents were examined by the 1878 Commission.
Therefore to assert that the title of Barone di Djar il-Bniet was granted before the 14th century is a fallacy. According to the 1878 Commissioners, the first relevant date for Djar il-Bniet is 1725 year when Marc’ Antonio Inguanez and his wife received the noble titles of Illustrissimo e Nobile where he was addressed as a barone. It was only in 1878 that the title of “Baron of Djar il-Bniet and Buqana” was backdated to 1350 in the person of Cicco Gatto. In fact the Commissioners reported as follows:- “Although this does not appear to have been expressly granted in the diplomas or Privilegia given in 1350 and in 1372, yet there are sufficient grounds for holding that at a later period that title was conferred or recognized, for Grand Master Manoel, on the 30th April 1725, issued a Prammatica or Ordinance, by which in order to remedy abuses and inconveniences, which had for some time prevailed in regard to titles, that Grand Master ordered and commanded that thenceforward no advocate, notary, or attuario should take upon himself to give in any instrument, contract, or other public act drawn up by him, the title of illustrissimo or of noblile to any of the prince's vassals, with the exception of the Capitano della Verga pro tempore, of the two Magistrati of the cities of Valeltta and Notabile, and the Milite barone Marc’Antonio Inguanez our feudatory, and Baronessa Inguanez his wife, and their descendants. Other nobles who will be mentioned hereafter were subsequently excepted from the provisions of the above Prammatica. Barone Marco Antonio Inguanez is the ancestor of Maria Teresa Damico, the present Baronessa. By the foregoing legislative act he, as the holder of the two fiefs in question, and his descendants were recognized by the former Government as barons. Marc’ Antonio was moreover thirty-four times between the years 1705 and 1760, appointed Capitano della Verga, and always designated as Barone Inguanez”.
Footnote #2: Marc'Antonio Inguanez could not have been the ancestor of Maria Teresa Inguanez because he had died childless. http://www.maltagenealogy.com/libro%20d'Oro/djarilbnietA.html
Footnote #3: On the other hand, Abela does refer to the fief of Bucana as a baronia held by the Gatto family in 1404 as successors of the Murina family who received that fief in 1372. However, he does not indicate how, when, or in whose favour this baronia di Bucana was created. According to the 1878 Commissioners’ Report, by another privilegium given at Catania on the 15th April 1404, King Martin confirmed in favour of the said milite Francesco Gatto, not only the possession of the fief of Diar el Bniet, but also that of the fief of Bucana which had been conveyed to Gatto, and had been previously by a privilegium given in Malta on the 4th November 1372, assigned by King Frederick to Gugliemo Murina and his descendants sub servitio unius equi alforati curiae nostrae perinde praestando.
Footnote #4: The British colonial administration understood only two ways of transmitting a title of nobility: “Either personal to the holder of a particular fief, or descends in order of primogeniture to be tenable only by the eldest male descendant”.Therefore on the basis that that Maria D’Amico was verified at the time to be in possession of these fiefs and that she was a descendant of Cicco Gatto, the Royal Commissioners of 1878 concluded that she was entitled to the title of “Baroness of Djar il-Bniet and Buqana”.
Footnote #5: Fiefs were abolished in Malta 1969 with a savings clause “nothing shall affect any title of nobility, and the laws in force concerning any such titles shall continue to have effect”. The question whether this renders the title transmissible by descent or whether it is extinct is discussed.
Footnote #6: Following the 1878 Report, succession to the title of nobility of “Baron of Djar il-Bniet and Bucana” is reckoned as follows: Cicco Gatto (1st grantee of fief, later deemed 1st Barone, invested January 1350), Lanza Gatto (invested in fief 12 November 1372 after a request by Lancia for a new grant, deemed 2nd Barone), Francesco Gatto (invested in fief 14 February 1397 and 15 April 1404, deemed 3rd Barone), Imperia Desguanecks Gatto (invested in fief _____, deemed 4th Baronessa), Angeraldo Inguanez (Gatt’ Inguanez) (invested in fief _____, deemed 5th Barone), Antonio Angaraldo Inguanez (invested in fief _____, deemed 6th Barone), Giacomo Angaraldo Inguanez (invested in fief _____, deemed 7th Barone), Marco Angaro Inguanez (invested in fief _____, deemed 8th Barone), Giacomo Angarao Inguanez (invested in fief _____, deemed 9th Barone), Antonio Inguanez (invested in fief _____, deemed 10th Barone), Marco Inguanez (invested in fief _____, deemed 11th Barone), Alessandro Inguanez (invested in fief _____, deemed 12th Barone), Marc’ Antonio Inguanez (invested in fief _____, deemed 13th Barone), Marc’ Antonio Inguanez (junior) (invested in fief _____, deemed 14th Barone), Gio Francesco D’Amico Inguanez (invested in fief _____, deemed 15th Barone), Claudio Emanuele Damico Inguanez Testaferrata (invested in fief _____, deemed 16th Barone), Alessandro Damico Inguanez (holding the fief on 31 July 1798, 13 Thermidor of Year 6, deemed 17th Barone), Vincenzo Damico Inguanez (his mother holding the fief on his behalf 5 October 1802, deemed 18th Barone), Maria Teresa Damico (holding the fief in 1878, deemed 19th Baronessa), Maria Francesca Carmen Sceberras D’Amico Inguanez (holding the fief, deemed 20th Baronessa), Alexander Ian Chesney Inguanez (holding the fief, deemed 21st Barone), Frances Mary Carmen Chesney Inguanez (holding the fief, deemed 22nd Baronessa). Fiefs abolished in 1969 (see note above)
