The Noble Family of Xuereb (a.k.a. Xueres) declared Nobile in a letters patent (1562) in favour of Nicholas (Cola) Xuereb, already borne by his forebears (1517), from whom also descends a Sicilian branch.

This family is listed as a noble family in “Descrittione di Malta” (1647).

“Oltre all’antichita’ di questa Casa in Malta, ella si vaghegia fra’ l’altre famosa, per haver dato alla patria, anzi al Paradiso il B. Padre Andrea Xuereb, splendour della Sacra Religione Domenicana, giace egli sepolto in un arca particolare nella Chiesa del suo Convento di Siracusa, over con soma veneratione si riverisce da tutta quella Citta: Di lui, che fiori’ intorno  1350, si discorrera’ nell’ ultima Notitia, che siegue dehli’ homini segnati di quest’ Isola. L’antico ascendente noi ritroviamo essere stato Guiglielmo, che visse intorno all’ anno 1440, fu’ padre di Tomeo, che nel 1487, prendette per isposa Imperia figluola di Gio Sillato. Di Tommeo (che negli’ atti di Gratiano Vassallo, ed in quelli di Bondi’ nel 1517 vien trattato co’ l-titolo di nobile) naqcque D. Garita, che fu’ moglie ell’ egregio Dottor Gregorio Xerri, lasciata erede del padre, che mori’ nel 1514, come dall’inventario de’ suoi beni, negli’ atti del Bondi’ al 1517 si ravvisa. Del medesimo Tommeo di stima, che fusse figliuolo Leonardo Xuereb: questo s’ammoglio l’anno 1525 con Elisabetta figliuola di Giacomo Xerri (allora defonto) e di Ventura sua consorte nelle prima nozze, e nelle seconde con Donna Aloisa figlia di Bartolomeo Xara, & Ismeralda Cassaro, dal quale matrimonio nacque poscia Cola Pietro Xuereb, che fu’ Dottor di leggi, e marito di D. Margherita figluola di Ugolino Bonnichi, fu’ Aloisea (morto Leonardo) moglie d’ Antonio Manduca imperial Cavaliere. E perche’ dal Dottor Cola Pietro, e da I figli, che ne nacquero hanno successione in Sicilia diversi nobili famiglie, non sara’ discaro al curioso lettore il descriverne la discendenza; ma prima e’ da sapere, come il detto Cola Pietro essendo stato Giudice delel cause cicili nel 1558 Giurato nel 1559 Giudice Assessore del Capitano con titolo doi nobile lanno 1562 e finalmente di nuovo Giurato della nostra Citta’ del 1563 se ne paso’ con tutta la famiglia tre’ anni doppo l’assedio nel 1565 in Sicilia, facendosi cittadino in Siracusa; quici egli ritovandosi con due figliuoli nati dalla detta Donna Margherita sua prima consorte, morta in Malta, una femmina, e l’altro mascio cioe’ Angelichella, e Vincenzo, prendette un’ altro moglie, ch’ hebbe nome D. Leonora figlia d’Antonio Lagunna Mastro Giurato della Camera Reginale di quel Regno, e di Beatrice Montalto e Medici, sorella del Barone di Milocca, com ein atti di Notaro Scannavino a’ 22 Ottobre 1568.  Vincenzo si marito’ con D. Maria Scammaca di Lentini, da’ quali nacque D. Angelica moglie di D. Mario la Valle Barone della Crucifisa di Catania, con haver questi poi generato D. Francesco, che si fe’ Giesuita, D. Cesare, D. Battista, D. Vincenzo e Donna Lucretia la quale fu’ moglie di D. Pietro Zappata nipote del Marchese di Spaccaforno. Angelichella sorella di Vincenzo hebbe due mariti, dal primo che fu’ Giuseppe Daniele, figliuol di Girolamo Barone di Candicattini, ne provenne Francesco padrone del Busalaro, ch’ hebbe per moglie Bearice Landolina da Noto: questi generarono Giuseppe marito di D’ Anna d’Assenso di Modica padri di Don Girolamo, di D. Angelica moglie di Don Francesco Gargallo da Lentini, e di Donna Caterina. Da Francesco Gulfi, figluol di Girolamo, secondo marito d’Angelichella, nacque Girolamo, da cui, e dalla moglile Donan Caterina Salnia sorella del fu’ Commendatore Fra D. Pietro alonia Cavaliere Gierosolimitano discesero Don Francesco che si marito’ con Donna Girolama Corrales, e Donna Angelica moglie di Scipione Buonaiuto. A passiamo al 2 matrimonio del Dott. Cola Pietro Xuereb, & a’ gl’altri figliuoli da lui in quello generate, I quali furoni 4, cioe’ due maschi, e due femmine: di queste l’una ch’hebbe nome D. Girolama si marito’ don D. Michele Romeo in Randazzo l’anno 1589 essendosi prima l’altra sorella onna Elisabetta maritata con Don Francesco delal medesima famiglia Romeo fratello del Barone di Melilli Terra di vassallaggio, I cui eredi hoggi sono li Baroni di Casal Giordano, e li Bigeni; mort oil marito ella fu’ sposa di Alfonso d’Heredia nobile Spagnuolo, Capitano della guardia del Duca di Macqueda allora Vicere’ di Sicilia, dal quale matrimonio non vi rimase successione. Delli maschi, Don Giuseppe fu’ Canonico delal Cattedrale di Siracusa, l’altro nominato D. Francesco hebbe per moglie nel 1594 Donna Violante Gaetano, famiglia del Principe del Cassaro e Marchese di Sortino, non meno in Sicilia, che per tutta Italia nobilissima per tanti titoli, dal quale matrimonio, oltre le femmine, provennero quattro maschi, cioe’ Don Domitio, e D. Ottavio I quali si morironi senza prole, Don Giulio si fece Sacerdote, e prese l’habito magistrale di questa Sacra Religione, Don Giuseppe Xueres, che fu’ il quarto, s’ammoglio’ nelle prime nozze con D. Leonora Barberino I Piazza, nobile famiglia, e d’antichisimi Baroni in quella Citta; da lei nacque una figlioola nomata Donan Violante, moglie di Don Giuseppe di Grande, Barone di Grotta perciata Siracusano, e nel secondo matrimonio si congiunse il detto D. Giuseppe Xueres, con D.
