VERMILION PARISH (made in 1844 from Lafayette Parish)
The parish  seat for Vermilion Parish is Abbeville, La.


From 1805-1807, a territory called Attakapas County  existed in southern Louisiana.

In 1807, by an act passed by the First Legislature of the  Territory of Orleans, the county of Attakapas was changed  to St. Martin Parish.

 Then in 1811, a lower eastern portion was designated,
creating St. Mary Parish. 

In 1823 Lafayette Parish was carved out of the western portion,
and finally Vermilion Parish was created out of Lafayette's territory,
by Act No.81 of the Legislature of Louisiana in 1844. 
 Finally in 1868 Iberia Parish was created in the middle of them all.
