    Notes 
    • “FERNANDO Vermúdez (-after 9 Oct 978). "Vermudo Nunez" donated property to the monastery of Santiago de Valdavida by charter dated 13 Aug 949, confirmed by "Velasquita coniux, Fredenandi prolis, Pinioli prolis". "Vermudo Nunniz" donated properrty to the monastery of Sahagún by charter dated 28 Jul 955, confirmed by "Fredinando Vermudiz…". He was described in a 984 Sahagún document as having inherited property from Oveco Núñez Bishop of León. Conde from 27 Sep 960. "Giloira Ranimiri principis filia" donated property to the monastery of Sahagún by charter dated 4 Apr 970, confirmed by "…Fredenando Veremudiz…". "Ranimiro rex et Gelbira reina domna" donated property to the monastery of Sahagún by charter dated 11 May 971, confirmed by "Ferdinando Verimudez…". "Fernando Vermuiz et Gelvira uxor" donated property to the monastery of Sahagún by charter dated 30 Nov 973. Mayordomo of Ramiro III King of León 14 Mar 976. The testament of "Vela Vermudez" is dated 27 Mar 976, names "Vermudo Velaz…Argilo" as beneficiaries, confirmed by "Nunno Velaz, Fernando Vermuiz, Gilvira Didaz uxor Fernando Vermuiz, Petero Fernandiz, Gomiz Fernandiz filiis Fernando Vermuiz". "Ranimirus rex" donated property to Sahagún by ccharter dated 18 Jan 977, confirmed by "Fredenando Veremudiz…". m (before [950]) condesa ELVIRA Díaz, daughter of conde DIEGO Muñoz de Saldaña & his wife condesa Tegridia ---. "Fernando Vermuiz et Gelvira uxor" donated property to the monastery of Sahagún by charter dated 30 Nov 973". No proof has been identified that the wife of Fernando Vermúdez was the daughter of Diego Muñoz, but the onomastics are favourable and a marriage between the two equally influential Saldaña and Cea families is to be expected. The testament of "Vela Vermudez" is dated 27 Mar 976, names "Vermudo Velaz…Argilo" as beneficiaries, confirmed by "Nunno Velaz, Fernando Vermuiz, Gilvira Didaz uxor Fernando Vermuiz, Petero Fernandiz, Gomiz Fernandiz filiis Fernando Vermuiz". She confirmed a donation to the monastery of Santa Colomba de Ripa Rubia in 975 with her husband, the document also mentioning their children and their son-in-law Flaín Muñoz. Fernando & his wife had six children:
      a) PEDRO Fernández (-1028). "Fernando Vermuiz et Gelvira uxor" donated property to the monastery of Sahagún by charter dated 30 Nov 973, confirmed by "Petrus Fernandiz, Gomiz Fernandiz…". The testament of "Vela Vermudez" is dated 27 Mar 976, nnames "Vermudo Velaz…Argilo" as beneficiaries, confirmed by "Nunno Velaz, Fernando Vermuiz, Gilvira Didaz uxor Fernando Vermuiz, Petero Fernandiz, Gomiz Fernandiz filiis Fernando Vermuiz". He was a supporter of Ramiro III King of León, forced tto flee (probably to Navarre with his sister) on the accession of King Vermudo II. Carlé suggests that the Pedro Fernández recorded in León during the reign of King Alfonso V was the son of Fernando Flaínez, and not the same person as this Pedro Fernández. Salazar Acha takes the same position, saying the two persons are "differentiated chronologically". Torre Sevilla disagrees, pointing out the known connections with Navarre of the later Pedro Fernández. In any case, the inheritance by the widow of Pedro Fernández of all the Cea properties of their daughter Elvira appears inexplicable if this was not the same Pedro Fernández who was the son of Fernando Vermúdez. There also appears no chronological difficulty with the death in 1028 of the individual born in [950]. Conde. He was a supporter of Alfonso V King of León, one of the leaders of the partido navarro. In 1016, Alfonso V King of León gave him Castrogonzalo, Villaseca and Fuentes de Ropel, properties cononfiscated from Sancho García Conde de Castilla. m [his cousin], as her first husband, SANCHA Múñoz, daughter of conde MUNIO Fernández [de Saldaña] & his wife --- (bur León Cathdral). She made numerous donations to the cathedral of León, in onne of which she refers to her first husband by name. She inherited all the Cea properties from her daughter and, in accordance with the last wishes of the latter, gave them 31 Aug 1038 to the monastery of San Antolin which she had founded[1396]. Pedro & his wife had one child:
      i) ELVIRA Pérez (-[before 31 Aug] 1038).
      b) GÓMEZ Fernández (-before 984). "Fernando Vermuiz et Gelvira uxor" donated property to the monastery of Sahagún by charter dated 30 Nov 973, confirmed by "Petrus Fernandiz, Gomiz Fernandiz…". The testament of "Vela Vermudez" is dated 27 MaMar 976, names "Vermudo Velaz…Argilo" as beneficiaries, confirmed by "Nunno Velaz, Fernando Vermuiz, Gilvira Didaz uxor Fernando Vermuiz, Petero Fernandiz, Gomiz Fernandiz filiis Fernando Vermuiz". Conde. m ONECA, daughter of ---. She is named as mother of “La condesa doña Onnega” in a charter dated 29 Sep 1062 under which her daughter donated property “la heredad que posee de su madre, Onnega, y de su abuelo el conde Fernando Bermúdez…la villa de Castrillo de Tapiolas y sus viñas de Tras Kastro…herido con el hijo de la condesa” to “Gonzalo Manscónez”. Gómez & his wife had [three] children:
      i) ONECA Gómez (-after 10 Nov 1062). “La condesa doña Onnega” donated property “la heredad que posee de su madre, Onnega, y de su abuelo el conde Fernando Bermúdez…la villa de Castrillo de Tapiolas y sus viñas de Tras Kastro…herido con el hijo de la condesa” to “Gonzalo Manscónez” by charter dated 29 Sep 1062. Torres and Salazar Acha suggest that in this case “abuelo [abo]” should be interpreted more broadly as “ancestor” rather than “grandfather”. However, “grandfather” appears aappropriate if, as appears to be the case, Oneca´s father was Gómez Fernández. It is true that, if this is correct, Oneca would have been in her late 80s or 90s when she died. However, other members of the family of Fernando Vermúdez appear to have been long-lived, assuming that their dates of death are correctly shown in this document. "Domna Onneca" donated property “in Ecclesiasindenia” to the monastery of San Millán de la Cogolla, for the soul of "filio meo senior Garcia Fortununiones", by charter dated 1061, confirmed by “…Rodrico Vermudo, sennor Didaco Alvarez, Ordonio Ordonioz…”. "Cometissa domna Onneca, Gomiz Fredenandiz prolis" donated property “in territorio…Borueva in villa…Ecclesiasindenia” to the monastery of San Millán de la Cogolla, for the soul of "mi…filio Garsiano", by charter dated 10 Nov 1062, confirmed by “…sennor Nunno Alvarez, sennor Roderico Bermudez, sennor Sarracino Hanniz, sennor Didaco Alvarez, sennor Hanni Hanniz, sennor Ordoni Ordodoniz, sennor Fredinando Rodriz, sennor Alvaro Rodriz, sennor Eximino Lopiz, sennor Salvator Gondissalviz, sennor Galindo Belasquiz”. Her two marriages are suggested by the charter dated 1050 under which "Senior Furtun Sancii…cum uxor mea dompna Tota" donated property to the monastery of San Millán de la Cogolla, for the soul of "socer meus regi Garsea Ranimiriz", and names "frater meus senior Garsea Fortuniones", assuming that the latter was the same García Fortúnez who is recorded in the other charters cited above as Oneca´s son. It is not known which of Oneca´s husband was Conde as neither has yet been identified beyond their names. m [firstly/secondly] FORTÚN, son of ---. m [firstly/secondly] SANCHO, son of ---.
      ii) [FERNANDO Gómez (-after 1020). Carlé suggests that the Fernando and Rodrigo Gómez who confirmed a donation of Fernando Flaínez in 1020 were sons of Gómez Fernández.]
      iii) [RODRIGO Gómez (-after 1020). Carlé suggests that the Fernando and Rodrigo Gómez who confirmed a donation of Fernando Flaínez in 1020 were sons of Gómez Fernández.]
      c) ELVIRA Fernández . She is cited in 978.
      d) GOTINA Fernández. Her paternity is established by a document of her daughter Fronilda Peláez which refers to the latter's maternal grandfather. m PELAYO Rodríguez, son of ---.
      e) JIMENA Fernández (-after 1035). "Garsea rex et uxor mea Eximina, cum domna Urracha regina" donated property to the monastery of San Pedro de Siresa by charter dated to [995/1004]. The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified. m (before 981) GARCÍA Sánchez de Navarra, son of SANCHO II Garcés Abarca King of Navarre, Conde de Aragón & his wife Urraca de Castilla ([964]-after 8 Dec 999). He succeeded his father 994 as GARCÍA IV Sánchez King of Navarre, Conde de Aragón.
      f) JUSTA Fernández (before [955]-). m (before 975) as his first wife, conde FLAÍN Muñoz, son of --- (-998/1002). He is named in his mother-in-law's document of 975.”««s87»» [1]
