town hall, Vermand, FranceThe Vermande family seems to have originated in France. A town north of Paris bears the name Vermand, and the French branch of the family still has a home nearby. The Metropolitan Museum of Art holds some Roman items found in the area. Click here for a photograph of the tower of the church in Vermand.

The area north of Champagne was once known as Vermandois. Medieval histories and the local library show a Hugh (or Hugues), Count of Vermandois, born 1057 C.E., son of Henry I (1031-1060) and Anne of Russia. Hugh apparently joined the Crusades in 1101. Hugh's brother, Philip (Philippe) I, went on to found the line that included St. Louis (Louis IX) and a few others we'd probably rather forget.

Apparently prodded by the Edict of Nantes, some members moved to Holland. At this point, information becomes sketchy, and a firm line of descent cannot be proved—except that the Vermandes of France bear a remarkable resemblance to those of America.
