Shields Origin of the last names

The surname with the most diverse number of coats of arms is that of Campos, whose origins have prevented the most authorized genealogists from investigating their formation and cradle. However it is known that it came from the region known in antiquity by Campi-Gotorum, and that it included what was later called Tierra de Campos, belonging to the provinces of Palencia, Leรณn and Valladolid. In this community were the primitive lots, from which emerged the different families of the last name Campos, which spread over the Iberian Peninsula, not excepting Portugal, forming diverse houses, some of which used the singular name of the lineage.


Torres was a very common surname in Spain in the fifteenth century between Jews and converts. This was because "Torres", in the family language, had the hidden meaning of "Mount Zion" and only the people within these communities understood it. The last name Torres was within the lists of the Inquisition and the church as surnames of converts, as well as its variants “De la Torre� and Torre. The best known person with this surname is that of the Murcian Luis de Torres, who participated in the boat of Cristobal Colon with the position of interpreter. Luis de Torres would stay to live in Cuba. The Torres, in exile in 1492, arrived in Portugal, Brazil, Amsterdam and the Dutch possessions in America, Italy and the Balkans.
