Vernie

The name Vernie is of celtic origin, Vernetum meaning land planted with alders. In the XII century the village was divided in 2 parts : Vernie La Motte and Vernie Le Mouttier. In 1510 these lordships were reunited by the Squire, Charles Perot, lord of Pescoux and Le Moutier, who then became a Baron. Until the Revolution, Vernie was the property of one or other important family.

Legend has it that the XVII century writer Scarron wrote his famous "Roman Comique" at the chateau of Vernie.
