Footnote #1: The Fournier tradition claims that Jacobo-Guillame de Fournier was a descendant of the French Lords de Fourniers, of whom Jacques Fournier (Pope Benedict XII died 1342) was a member. This family hailed form Avignon, France and enjoyed the title of Comte. Various authentic copies exist of a grant dated December 1429 by King Charles VII of France of a coat of arms and nobility to St. Jeanne d’Arc and her family (given the surname "du Lys") including the descendants of her brothers Jacquemin, Jean, and Pierre out of gratitude for Joan of Arc's military victories. This grant allowed for the transmission of noble status through both the male and female lines. This had the practical effect of allowing them to pass their status to all of their descendants.In fact, it is amply recorded that two descendants of Pierre de Lys’s daughter namely Robert Le Fournier (the Baron of Tournebeu) and his nephew Lucas du Chemin (the Lord of Feron), successfully petitioned King Henry II of France in October 1550 for a confirmation of transmission of nobility to them under the terms of the aforesaid patent of nobility dated December 1429.

 

 

 

Footnote #2: It appears that the Maltese branch are of a younger branch of the Counts Fournier and are descended from Geronimo Fournier a merchant  based in Trapani, Sicily. It is not amiss to note that Geronimo's brother was Fra. Giacomo de Fournier, a Knight of the Order of St John, which may have been an incentive for prompting Geronimo to leave Sicily and settle in Malta..

Footnote #1: Giorgio Fournier de Pausier applied for a title and that by letters patent bearing date the 31st March 1768, the title of Barone was conferred by Empress Maria Theresa on Giorgio Fournier de Pausier. The patent issued, at the grantee’s request, runs thus:- Te supradictum Georgium Fournier in numerum, consortium, coetum, ordinem, atque Baronum dignatatem assumimus, teque una cum filiis tuis atque posteris virilis sexus, ex legitimo thoro natis atque nascituris in infinitum, primogeniali ordine semper servato, Baronem ac Barones Regnorum et Provinciarum nostrarum facimus, nominamus atque creamus. (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. 205-208). Although published sources refer to this title as Barone de Pausier it is clear that that is a misnomer as the title granted was of Barone and not Barone de Pausier.. However, the accepted form is used here so as to distinguish it from other dignities enjoyed by the grantee’s family. At Maltese Law this title of Barone (de Pausier) 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, this title granted to Fournier de Pausier in 1768 was never registered in Malta, nor does it appear to have received direct recognition for the Grand Masters who ruled Malta. (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. 205-208). This does not render the title invalid but in accordance with the rule cited above, although the title is valid, it does not enjoy precedence in Malta. See also: http://www.maltagenealogy.com/SME/depausier.html and http://www.saidvassallo.com/SME/referencegrants.html. Unfortunately, the 1878 report is not helpful in indicating whether Empress Maria Theresa granted this title in her German or Italian provinces, or elsewhere, nor does it indicate the place where the title was applied for, or where it was granted. On the other hand, it is helpful in indicating that the 1768 remainder reads posteris virilis sexus, ex legitimo thoro natis atque nascituris in infinitum, primogeniali ordine semper servato . Upon a further reading of the 1878 report, it results that two years later Giorgio Fournier de Pausier received another title of Conte (see footnotes below) where the grantor is described as the same Empress Maria Theresa, and that that title was granted in the Kingdom and Provinces of Germany. This however is not necessarily conclusive proof of the relative jurisdiction as the 1878 Report also describes yet another title granted by the same Empress in the same year 1770 but in the Italian Provinces annexed to the German Empire.

 

Footnote #2: Another title, this time one of Conte was conferred upon the said Giorgio Fournier de Pausier by the same Empress Maria Theresa, by a patent given at Vienna on the 29th January 1770. The grant was made to the said Giorgio Fournier de Pausier, in the Kingdom and Provinces of Germany with succession to his children and descendants of the male sex, whether born or to be born from lawful wedlock, according to the order of primogeniture. The following is the operative clause of the patent of creation:- Teque una cum filiis tuis atque posteris virilis sexus, ex legitimo thoro natis atque nascituris, in infinitum, primogeniali ordine servato, Comitem ac Comites Regnorum et Provinciarum nostrarum, facimus, nominamus atque creamus. (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. 209-215; Suppemental Report Part III; Letter of Hicks-Beach at pages 59-60 of Report). At Maltese Law this title of Conte (Fournier) 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 Fournier de Pausier was in fact registered in the Cancelleria, and in the High Court of the Castellania. .See also: http://www.maltagenealogy.com/SME/fournier5.html and http://www.saidvassallo.com/SME/referencegrants.html Although published sources refer to this title as Conte Fournier it is clear that that is a misnomer as the title granted was of Conte and not Conte Fournier. However, the accepted form is used here so as to distinguish it from other dignities enjoyed by the grantee’s family. The 1878 Commissioners had difficulty in ascertaining whether the remainder of this 1770 grant, albeit providing for succession by Primogeniture, allowed a male descending from a female descendant of the grantee, to enjoy the title. In fact the 1878 Commissioners never reached a decision about the matter. It appears however that this latter question was resolved by the British Secretary of State (see below).

Footnote #1: It appears that the 1878 Commissioners were slightly confused about Lazzaro Fournier’s identity or even his very existence. In their first report, the commissioners reported: Giorgio Fournier, the person first ennobled, left Lazzaro Sant , who died without any son to whom the title might descend, but leaving only one daughter, Luigia Sant, the present claimant's mother. Later, in their Supplemental Report, the same Commissioners said thus: The first titled person Giorgio Fournier had no male issue, but left one daughter, Luigia wife of Baldassare Sant, of whom Lazzaro Sant, the present claimant, is the first-born son. (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.)

Footnote #1: As indicated above, the 1768 title granted Giorgio Fournier de Pausier is to follow the order of primogeniture. On the basis of the genealogical chart, the primogenial descendant of Giorgio Fournier de Pausier, the then primogenial descendant was a woman, namely Luigia Fournier wife of Baldassare Sant. As it does not result where the 1768 title was granted, one assumes that there is nothing which prevented an artificial agnation allowing Luigia Fournier and her descendants to enjoy the title of Barone (de Pausier) by order of Primogeniture.

 

Footnote #2: The same cannot be said in regard to the 1770 title of Conte granted to Fournier de Pausier as that grant is amply described in the 1878 report of the Royal Commissioners. In the first place, it is clear from the terms of the grant that the title cannot be enjoyed but by male members of the grantee’s family. In fact the Commissioners themselves observed that the relative remainder only allows the male sex to succeed. Published sources show the aforesaid Luigia Fournier as having enjoyed the title. This is patently not consistent with the terms of the 1770 grant. It will be recalled that in analogous situation (barone della Marsa), the 1878 Commissioners held that the formula tuisque descentibus masculis tribuimus concedimus et donamus excluded a female from succeeding a title granted in such terms.

Footnote #1: As indicated above, the 1878 Commissioners deliberated at length whether the title could be enjoyed by a male descendant who could only claim through an intermediate female descendant. They argued that had this title been created by a local sovereign, the question would present little difficulty, but in the present case, the claim must be considered under the German Feudal Law in force at the time of the issuing of the patent of this title. It appears that the 1878 Commissioners made some exasperating searches to ascertain the legal effects of a grant issued in Austria towards the close of the 18th century and limited to the male descendants of a person and concluded that because of inadequate information they did not feel justified in expressing any opinion on this point. The Commissioners however did point out that there is in the grant to Giorgio Fournier no clause proving that on the failure of the grantee’s male line, the son of the surviving female descendant should succeed to the title. Consequently, they indicated that this may mean that the will and intendment of the grantor was to limit the succession to the title originally conferred on Giorgio Fournier to his male descendants belonging to his male line. However, they added that it may be significant that the 1770 title granted to Fournier was based in the Kingdom and Provinces of Germany and not in the Italian Provinces annexed to the German Empire. In the latter grant, a condition is attached by which the grantee is required to purchase a fief in Lombardy, a condition which does not appear in the patent granted to Giorgio Fournier. Because they did not feel fully acquainted with the laws and statutes in force in the German Empire and its Italian dependencies, in or about the year 1770, the 1878 Commissioners refrained from expressing an opinion as regards to this issue. The issue appears to have been resolved by the British Secretary of State for the Colonies in the following terms: In this case, if the patent had issued in Malta or in Sicily, I gather than the claim would have been allowed under the rules of feudal law recognized in those States, and therefore without offering any opinion as to the strict legal effect which would be given to the patent at Vienna, and without prejudice to any future legal decision upon its meaning, should it ever be called in question in a court of law, I feel that I may reasonably permit the claimant and his successors, for the purpose of precedence, to take the place to which they would be entitled under the principles of legal interpretation applicable to the grant if it had emanated in 1770 from the Sicilian or Maltese Sovereign authority. (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.)

All male to male descendants can style Counts (Graf) and daughters can style Countess (Contessa, Grdfin), but not their descendants. Though in the direct line, inheritance may be accepted via female line as the Count Sant of the Holy Roman Empire and in Malta.

All Spouses can style Countess (Contessa, Grdfin).

 

Both in Malta and under the Germanic Empire (Austria Lombardy was part of) would naturally accept one holder as the head of the lineal descent, and further acceptance by descent for all existing male descendants in the legitimate line as Counts, Grdf..
