Historical Notes

Vernon is a commune in the Haute-Normandie region in northern France, lying on the banks of the Seine River midway between Paris and Rouen. The name is derived from the Celtic “uerno” or Gallic “vern” which means “alder tree”, with a location suffix (hence “place of the alder trees”). Vernon was introduced into England as an aristocratic surname at the time of the Norman conquest with the arrival of William de Vernon, who was granted lands in the County Palatine of Chester under the patronage of Hugh d’Avranches, 1st Earl of Chester. His son Richard was created a medieval Baron and settled at Shipbrook.
It is quite likely, given the date of construction, that Vernon Park was named after George John Warren Vernon, 5th Baron Vernon (22 June 1803 – 31 May 1866) He was one of the last Members of Parliament for Derbyshire and, after the Reform Act,  the first for South Derbyshire. Vernon had a lifetime enthusiasm for Italian literature, particularly Dante after visiting Italy as a child.
