MORPURGO - jewishvirtuallibrary & retecivica.triestesItalian - North Italian family of Austrian origin. Its earliest known is rabbi Israel Isserlein b Petachia (1390-1460) who settled in Marburg, Styria current Maribor, Slovenia and became known also as R. Israel Marburg. In 1624 members of the Marburger or Marpurger family were appointed Court *Jews by Emperor Ferdinand II. About the mid-17th century, they were to be found in various parts of Europe, North Africa and the East, but mainly in northern Italy, at Trieste, Gorizia, Ancona, Venice, Padua. Arriving there from Gradisca d'Isonzo (Austria), they eventually changed their name to Morpurgo, and distinguished themselves in various fields. Among the descendants are Aaron of Marbourg & his son Isaac of Trieste banker, who along with other members of the family gained accolades from the German Emperor Maximilian I in favour of the Israelites - most likely because the Marbourg's were able to provide large supplies to the wars in that period. The Marburg's perpetuated their name and were divided into several branches. In 1624, Moses son of Aron of Gradisca and Jacob son of Simon Marpurger of Tapogliano were elected Jews of court, for a very large scope and only rarely granted by Emperor Ferdinand II of Austria..
