Counts Sheremetev
« on: November 06, 2005, 06:52:31 PM »
In 1900s, the Sheremetev Palace  (Fountain House) was used as Cultural Center and office of many trusts of Sheremetev Family. Then where did the Sheremetev family live? is there a second Sheremetev palace?

Counts Sheremetev/ Cheremetev

I don’t know if already exist a topic regarding Counts Sheremtev if not it will be nice to make here one and request more information about them, what was their position in the imperial Russia and so on. Including dates it will be better. And try to match the several branches of the family. Pictures of the Sheremetev family are welcome. I wonder who the owner of the Cheremetev Palace was.

Here is going my first;
Counts Cheremev related to the Imperial Family;

•      Count Count Dimitri Sergheevich Sheremetev b.1867; married to Countess Irina Illarionovna Vorontsov-Dashkov had issue;
-Countess Praskovia Dmitrievna Sheremetev, b.1901, d.1980 married to Prince Roman Petrovich of Russia.
- Count Nicholas Dimitrievitch Sheremetev, b.1904, d.1979 married Princess Irina Youssoupoff daughter of Prince Felix Youssoupoff and Princess Irina of Russia

•      Count Vladimir Cheremetev b.1847 d. 1893 married Countess Elena Stroganov daughter of Count Gregory Stroganov and Grand Duchess Maria Nikolaina of Russia, the had ssue;

- Coun Sergei Cheremetev b. 1880, d. 1968

- Countess Sofia Cheremetev b. 1883, d. 1956

Owner of Sheremetev palace was Count SD Sheremetev, father of Count Dimiti Sheremetev which you mentioned above. He had a brother Count AD Sheremetev.

Thank Akshaychavan,
So Count Serghey Dmitrievich Sheremetevowner and his wife Princess Catherine Wyazemsky were the owners of the Sheremetev palace and Count Serghey had a brother Count A. Dmitrievich Sheremetev.
Do They had more brothers/ sisters and who was their parents ?

And who was Prince Alexander Dimitrievich Sheremetev?  How is he related to the above mentioned. By the way do the Sheremetev also hold a princely title? I though they were just counts. Nice picture. Thank you

"Prince" Cheremetiev mentioned is a mistake. The Person in the photo is Count AD Sheremetev, Brother of SD Sheremetev. Interestingly their father Count Dimitri was son of Praskovya a serf actress who married Count Nikolai Sheremetev. There was also Nizhi Novgorod Branch of the family who were untitled. If i am not wrong Vladimir Sheremetev belonged to that branch. They had no title or were simple Barons
Here is a link to Count AD Sheremetev's Palace which is now a hotel

The attribution of "Prince" Cheremetiev is a direct quote from the book of photographs from the 1903 Imperial Fancy Dress Ball.

Another piece of info, Countess Alexandra Alexandrovna Sheremetev , daughter of Count AD Sheremetev was married to Sergei Vladimirovich Sheremetev. He belonged to untitled branch of the Sheremetev family and was son of Vladimir Sheremetev. He was related to Romanovs through his mother  Countess Elena Stroganova who was the only daughter of Maria Nikolaievna and Count Stroganov.

So is everyone (or most people) with the last name sheremetev a descendent of this noble family? In another post, someone said there are 2 main branches. Are they related or unrelated? is the spelling interchangeable? Is there a family tree I can look up somewhere? I also heard there was an airport. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.

I searched but found little on this famous Russian landmark.  The Kuskovo estate and palace was built for the Sheremetev family.  The Palace was built in the 1760’s in the neo-classical style, the architect is unknown . . . sometimes attributed to the French urbanist Charles de Willy, but is also said to have been the design of several of the family’s serfs.

Here are some photos

I have in my collection a receipt from the Imperial Yacht Club to Count A.D. Sheremetiev dated around 1907 for his monthly bill for food and wine etc. It would appear from the invoice that the Count was rather tardy at paying the bill, as there is interest charges added to it.....if someone really really wants to see it I can make a scan of it.
