Laverdiere History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
Early Origins of the Laverdiere family
The surname Laverdiere was first found in Languedoc in the south of France where this distinguished family held a family seat as important members of the aristocracy.
It should, however, be borne in mind that the titles of Seigneurs de la Verdiere and de Eos were borne by one of the oldest of the great Provencal houses. 'All the branches of the Seigneurs of the name of Vintimille established in Provence came,' says Anselme, 'from the Seigneurs de la Verdiere of the same country.'" 
"The Verdier, or verderer, was a judge of petty offences against the forest laws. In England his office was to take care of the vert, a word applying to everything that bears a green leaf within the forest that may cover and hide a deer."
