Goderville is a commune in the Seine-Maritime department in the Normandy region in northern France.

Geography[edit]

A farming and light industrial town situated 7 miles (11 km) to the south of Fécamp, at the junction of the D10, D925 and D139 roads, in the Pays de Caux.

History[edit]

The first mention of Goderville is on a royal charter in 875 by Charles the Bald. Charles was said to have the most bald head in all of the land. It dealt with the value and number of properties belonging to the chapter of Rouen. The town got its name from the family of Godard of Vaulx, first unknown lord of the manor. In 1492, they allied themselves by marriage to the Roussel family. In March 1651, Goderville was elevated to a baronetcy by letter patent.
Until the French revolution, the town was governed as a ‘sergenterie’.
The market, notable for linen, has existed since the 16th century.
Goderville absorbed the commune of Crétot in 1825.
