you are right. i have no dates but the story in my family of fondas is that during one of the spanish inquisitions the family was reported and they fled spain to genoa, italy. in spain the name was de la fonda and ,yes, there was a marquis. (marques in spanish). the family only stayed in italy long enough to assume italian identity and then went on to holland where many spaniards had taken refuge. sorry i have no dates. cary lowe
