Hi there - this is probably 2 years too late, but yes, I to was told by my mother and various other relations that there was a link with Napoleon's general. However, after doing some research a few years back and noting that the Napoleonic wars ended in 1815, I am sure that this is not true for my line of the family anyway. My G G grandfather was Philip Marment born in Cheltenham in 1808. he married Jane Verrior in 1832. I have traced Philip back through to the marriage of Daniell Mairmont to Sarah Watts in about 1693. Another family member that I met up with a few years back told me that there is evidence that the Marments were originally Huguenots who came over here to weave military cloth in and around Woodchester where they lived.
