VERDON Family History

Recorded as Vardon, Varden, Verden, Verdon, Verduin, Verdun, and possibly others, this surname can be described as usually English, but wherever recorded, is ultimately of pre medieval French origins. It is locational from either the ancient city of Verdun in eastern France, the scene over the centuries of much warfare and the famous seige of 1916 - 1917, or from Verdun in La Manche. In England Bertrannus de Verduno of Berkshire was recorded in the famous geographical survey of England in 1086 and known to history as the Domesday Book.

I have read that Bertram de Verdun was a junior son of a Norman count, and accompanied William (Duke of Normandy) at the Battle of Hastings inn 1066.


I have received indications that my 5-great grandmother's maiden name was Gertrude Verdoen, and that she was born in Dublin, Ireland, in the 1680s, and that she married Sir Thomas Lytton. Her grandson, Joseph Lytton, immigrated to America with his wife and family about 1818 and settled in Nashville, Tennessee. I am interested to learn if anyone can help me learn more about her and her family.
