Francesco Alessi,  married 1720 Valletta  to Elisabetta Faggot, with issue. Saverio Alessi, 1st Marquis della Taflia, Cr:1790 (The patent conferring the title of Marchese della Taflia was on the 13th November 1790, granted by Grand Master Rohan to the aforesaid Saverio Alessi. In this grant a singular circumstance is noticeable. The patent of creation bears that the title is inheritable by the grantee’s descendants in the following terms: - Tibi Magnifico ac Nobili Xaverio Alessi tuisque legitimis descendentibus tribuimus, concedimus, et donamus, ac de Marchionis hujusmodi titulo decoramus, nec non ita nominari pose ac debere. ;The grant does not state whether the title should be enjoyed by all the said descendants simultaneously, or by only one of them under the rule of primogeniture.  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. 70-71 ). The 1878 Commissioners did not enter into the merits of the remainder, noting only that this grant was in the family, always taken to be limited to the first-born descendant only, contenting themselves with the fact that  The claimant of the title of Marchese della Taflia, Bernardo Alessi, is the grandson of the person first ennobled, and the first-born male child in the family. No person having disputed his claim, he will be included in our list, and styled Bernardo Alessi Marchese della Taflia. It should be recalled however that the same Commissioners elsewhere in their report stated that it cannot be assumed that titles can be lawfully explained, construed, or extended by private agreements.  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.) It is also worthwhile noting that the argument that such title has always been considered as descendible only in the primogenial line of the original grantee cannot hold. (It is also to be remarked that this argument was merely observed by the Commissioners and that they neither agreed not disagreed with it.) This is being said because: (1) when one considers the fact that the grant relative to Taflia is worded in terms which are different to those relative to other grants and extensions made by the same Grand Master. For example the title of Ghain Kajet (4.06.1796) reads tuisque descendentibus primogenitis legitimis et naturalibus tribuimus concedimus, et donamus, the title of Gnien-is-sultan (1.12.1792) reads Tibi Magnigico Philippo Apap, tuisque descendentibus masculis legitimis et naturalibus ipsisque deficientibus, foemina majori natu, tribuimus, concedimus et donamus, ac te Marchionis hujusmodi titulo decoramus, and the extension to Fiddien (17.06.1793) reads Fiat pro primogenitis maribus tantum. Similarly, the San Giorgio extension (5.6.1792) accorded remainder to all (male) descendents in perpetuum; (2)  Moreover, whilst the Commissioners remarked in regard to title of a foreign origin that they cannot, in fact, suppose that the Grand Masters were disposed to recognize, without any investigation, and as a matter independent of their own sovereign assent and approbation, as Titolati in their dominion, any persons indiscriminately who should have obtained a title of nobility from ay foreign Sovereign, 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 Para. 102), it is reasonable to assert that the Grand Master knew full well that different remainders bring along different implications, and (3) Moreover, it is manifest that the grant of 13.11.1790 does not include any references to remainder by primogenial descent. This grant of Taflia is also different to the extension of San Giorgio in the sense that the former is the actual grant whereas the latter was made after a rescript. Thus, in view of the absence of any clause limiting the remainder of the Taflia title to the primogenial descendant, the grant relative to the title of Taflia must be construed as favouring all legitimate descendants of Saverio Alessi.), married Firstly on 1756 to Saveria Scicluna (Died 1777), married Secondly 1783 to Gertrude Bres, with issue.
