Is the last name "Matsumoto" refers to a famous noble Japanese family in the past?

I think I've heard that somewhere, but I'm not sure...

    Matsumoto is a common family name (as well as a place name). While there might have been any number of locally notable families that everybody in that particular village or town knew about, there is or was no matsumoto family of that nature that is recognized widely in Japan. At least not that I know of.

    Maybe you mean Kenjiro Matsumoto?
