Native of the locality of Filiaşi, situated in the neighbourhood of the city of Craiova, from where the family took their family name, the Filişau boyars are attested for the first time in the 15th century, when the documents mention a certain Mogoş.
The owners of a wide landed property, the Filişau family can join other families with an old and far off boyar line, probably before the constituting of the feudal state of Wallachia. The existence of their estate is proved both by numerous testaments, and documents that used to establish the confines of a landed property, which remained as a testimony along the time. This boyar family had properties in all the counties of Oltenia: Dolj, Gorj, Mehedinţi, Vâlcea and Romanaţi.
In the 17th century, Dumitru Filişanu built a kula in the Tatomireşti village. Unfortunately, it is no longer preserved today.
