Many Protestant (Huguenot) Walloon families migrated to Leiden in Netherland sometime around 1547 to escape religious persecution. The earliest Vernooy surname can be found in Holland in 1547 when a Willem Vernoy rented the Manor of Natewisch (Utrecht, Netherland). The Vernooy family that came to Netherland were from Vernoy, a small village south east of Paris (Department of Yonne and the Burgundy area). In 1624 migration to New Netherland began.
