 Pietro Formosa di Mazara, che fu nominato subportulano di Mazara il 17.3.1348, e il 28.4.1366 castellano del porto di Agrigento, possedette il privilegio di un grano per ogni salma estratta dal porto di Agrigento. Re Federico IV concesse il 13.7.1377 la detta rendita feudale al milite Giuseppe de Bonis filiis di Catania, medico e tesoriere del Regno. Nr Raimondo Formosa il 23.11.1354 ricevette per se e i suoi eredi il tenimento di terra chiamato Ricculuno (ubicato in territorio di Mazara, vicino le terre di Giorgio Graffeo denominate Xucayri, e presso la terra Crimesii) gia posseduto da Bartolomeo Incisa. Alla sua morte, avvenuta nel 1375, il diritto del pontile del porto della citta di Mazara, du cui godeva, fu concesso a Rilibello Musso.

Luca Formosa possedette il castello con casale e feudo di Chandicattini (odierno comune di Canicatti, allora nel territorio di Naro). In seguito alla sua fellonia, re Martino concesse Chandicattini a Guglielmo Raimondo Moncada, ma 18.5.1400 il feudo fu restituito al Formusa.

Footnote: The Formosa de Fremaux family has long been associated with the title Conte di Santa Sofia, However, published sources do not indicate its origin except that it is said to be “French”. There is no record  nor any claim whatsoever of this title in the records of the 1878 Commission. This observation does not necessarily mean that the title Conte di Santa Sofia is invalid. In fact the Commissioners themselves stated on record that  notwithstanding their efforts to ensure a comprehensive study of these titles, the Commissioners made a caveat that their report being based on a list of titles prepared by an ad hoc Committee of nobles formed on the occasion of a visit by the Prince of Wales, cannot be assured to “correspond to all the existing titles of nobility, and still less that the thirty one gentlemen “(mentioned in the list)” represent all those who, under certain conditions, would have the right of claiming a title by virtue of the same grant. On the contrary, as it will be hereafter remarked, many gentlemen not comprised in that list are exactly in the same condition as others therein mentioned. As no notice has appeared in the Government Gazette, informing the public of the existence of our Commission, and inviting all those who might have a right to a title of nobility to lay their claims before us, our inquiry must necessarily be incomplete, and limited to those titles which are included in the list, or which after its presentation have been claimed. On the other hand, we could not ascertain how far the committee are invested with a representative character, with regards to the interests of the Maltese nobility.”

On the other hand, however this caveat was later regarded as unnecessary by Governor van Straubenzee who stated that he had no reason to suspect that anyone having any pretension to be a “Titolato” was ignorant either of the existence of the Committee of Nobles, or of the appointment of the Commission. He also commented that the publication of a notice to the effect above stated would hardly be consistent with the instructions contained by the Despatch of the Secretary of State. At all events, he added, if there were more “Titolati” they were at liberty at any time to prove their claims, and take the precedence to which they are entitled. 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.) and  http://www.saidvassallo.com/SME/referencegrants.html
