Footnote #1: Salvatore Baldassare Sant was granted the title of Conte in virtue of a patent granted, on the 22nd December 1770, by the Empress Maria Theresa in the Italian Provinces annexed to the German Empire. In this grant, a condition is attached by which the grantee is required to purchase a fief in Lombardy,. The operative parts of the grant read thus:- (A) Quod cum ita sint, non difficiles aures praebuimus precibus tuis, Nobilis dilecte Nobis Don Balthassar Salvator de Sant, Nobilis Melitensis quibus licet ordine, in numerum Comitum nostrarum in Italia Provinciarum postulas referri, illisque deficientibus, Comitis titulum ad Primogenitum ex ultima foemina superstite nasciturum, hujusque posteris extendi (B)  Teque una cumflio tuo primogenitor Joanni Francisco Salvatori, et ab hoc, eodem nascendi ordine, descendentibus virilis sexus ex legitimo thoro natis atque nascituris, in infinitum, Comitem ac Comites nostrarum in Italia Provinciarum facimus, nominamus, atque creamus…(C) Et quoniam in Longobaria nostra les obtinet, quae Comitis titulum, congrua eidem feudi posessione jubet fulciri, aequi bonique facimus, te prompto nobis obsecundandi studio ad laborare, ut feudum clientelie vinculo obstrictum, inditione nostra, primo quovis tempore adquira.…. (D) Addentes hanc gratiam speccialem, ut si aliquando stirpem masculinam familiae tuae extingui contingat, Comitis titulus et dignitas ad Primogenitum ex ultima foemina generic tui superstite natum vel nasciturum, qui gentis tuae cognomen assumit ejusque posteros modo antedicto, servatoque simper ordine primogeniali transeat. The Commissioners commented that they were not aware that the land referred to in the patent was actually acquired by the grantee, but stated that as this condition is not peremptorily laid down in the patent, they did not think that its non-performance invalidates the grant. 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. 216-217 AND Supplemental Report Part III) At Maltese Law this title of Conte (Sant) is only a foreign title and, as such, it can be considered for the purposes of precedence in Malta only if registration or Magistral recognition has been achieved in accordance with the rules of 1739 and 1795 as enacted by Grand Masters Despuig and Rohan. In this case, it appears that the 1770 title granted to Salvatore Baldassare Sant was in fact registered in the Cancelleria, and in the High Court of the Castellania. Although published sources refer to this title as Conte Sant it is clear that that is a misnomer as the title granted was of Conte and not Conte Sant. However, the accepted form is used here so as to distinguish it from other dignities enjoyed by the grantee’s family.

 

Footnote #2 The 1878 Commissioners were able to delve deeper into the terms of the patent granted to Sant because this exercise was useful to highlight some aspects of the grant relative to the title of Conte (Fournier). In particular, the Commissioners noted that in the grant to Sant it is stated that on the failure of the grantee’s male line, the son of the surviving female descendant should succeed to the title. Such a clause is not to be found in the diploma relative to Conte (Fournier) See: Supplemental Report Part III. Moreover as results from the extract quoted by the Commissioners Addentes hanc gratiam specialem ut si aliquando stirpem masculinam familiae tuae extingui contingant, comitis titulis ed dignitas ad primogenitum ex ultima foemina generis tui superstite natum vel nasciturum, qui gentis tuae cognomen assumit, ejusque posteros modo antedicto, servatoque simper ordine primogeniali, transeat, such male must append the surname Sant to his real family name.

 

Footnote #3 From a reading of the Commissioners’ Supplemental Report as well as the formula stirpem masculinam familiae tuae extingui contingant, comitis titulis ed dignitas ad primogenitum ex ultima foemina generis tui superstite natum vel nasciturum it is clear that a male descending from a female (defined as the surviving female descendant) can only come to succeed the title once all male-to-male descent of Salvatore Baldassare Sant  (tui superstite) has been extinguished. The definition of “male to male descent” is here further qualified by the requirement that in order to succeed one has to be born ex legitimo thoro natis atque nascituris that is to say in order to be within the vocation established by the grant one must be a male-to male born legitimate in lawful wedlock. A legitimated issue does not qualify.

 

Footnote #4 It should be noted that elsewhere in their report (Preziosi  and Marchese Testaferrata) the Commissioners had already noted that certain principles of feudal law, which at the time of the grant obtained in Germany, Lombardy, Savoy, and in other parts of Italy allowed simultaneous transmission to all of the male to male descendants of grantees of titles granted in those areas. 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. 122-172) Consequently, there is nothing to prevent all male to male descendants of Baldassare Sant from enjoying this German title simultaneously.

 

Footnote#5: In terms of the Statuto delle succesioni ai titoli e agli attrbuti nobiliari (Regio Decreto 16 agosto 1926, n. 1489 article 1 reads Alle antiche disposizioni che con norme diverse, nelle singoli regioni d’  Italia, regolana tutt’ ora l’ordine delle successioni, riguardo ai titoli ed attributi nobiliari concessi dai Sovrani degli antichi Stati, prima della unificazione politica, sono surrogate le disposizioni seguenti (etc). In addition article 12 of the same Statuto reads:  Le disposizioni e le consuetudini riflettenti la successione nei titoli di nobilta’  contrarie alla presemti disposizioni, sono abrogate. Article 2 reads: Le successione nei titoli nobiliari e anessi predicate ha luogo a favore dell’ agnazione maschile dell’ ultimo investito per ordine di primogenitura, senza limitazione di gradi, con preferenza della linea sul grado. I chiamati alla successione devono descendere per maschi dallo stipite comune, primo investito del titolo. I titoli non si trasmettono alle femmine, ne per linea femminile, salvo quanto dispone il primo capoverso dell’ art. 4 . The latter capoverso reads Quelli concessi, oltre che tutti I maschi, anche alle femmine, spettano allo medesime solo durante lo stato nubile e non danno luogo a successione. Article 5 reads: I titoli provenienti da femmine, che, alla entrata in vigore delli presenti disposizioni sono legittimamente pervenuti alla lora discendenza maschile, continuano aa devolversi alla medesima discendenza, secondo le norme stabilite nel’  art. 2. Estinte le linee maschili, aventi per stipite comune la femmina intestataria del titolo, questo con gli annessi predicati ritorna, preview patenti di Regio assenso, all’ agnazione maschile della famiglia, alla quale apparteneva nel giorno della promulgazione delle leggi abolitive della feudalita’ osservate le norme stabilite nell’ art. 2. Some time later in 1943, further Italian legislation was enacted. In terms of the Ordinamento dello Stato nobiliare italiano (Regio Decreto 7 giugno 1943, n.651) article 40 reads: Le successioni dei titoli, predicate e attribute nobiliari hanno luogo a favore della agnazione maschile dell’ ultimo investito, per ordine di primogenitura senza limitazione di gradi con preferenza della linea sul grado. I chiamati alla successione debono discendere per maschi dallo stipite commune, primo investito del titolo. I titoli, I predicate e gli attributi nobbiliari non si trasmettono per linea femminile, salvo quanto dispone il primo capoverso dell’ art. 45” The latter capoverso reads : Estinte le linee maschili, aventi per stipite, comune la femmina intestataria del titolo, questo con gli annessi predicate ritorna, previe Lettere Patenti di Regio Assenso, all’  agnazione maschile della famiglia alla quale apparteneva nel giorno della promulgazione delli leggi abolitive della feudalita’  osservate le norme stabilite dall’  art. 40.
