Martaizé, France (Martaize)

People, Pictures and News From the Past

Where is Martaizé, France? 

It is situated in the old province of Poitou-Charente about 150 miles from La Rochelle, a five day ride by oxen. Martaizé lies on a very historical road from Chinon to Poitiers... This was the road taken by Joan of Arc and her loyal soldiers to Poitiers during her campaign to deliver France from the English in 1430...

The area around Martaizé is largely agricultural with the principle crops being wheat, barley, oats and oil seed. The farm lands are level and rich. Ten to fifteen miles further north and closer to the Loire River, vineyards are also prominent.

In the early 17th century, Martaizé, along with the nearby village of La Chaussée, was one of the seigneuries of Charles de Menou d'Aulnay. Several of the earliest settlers of Acadia including the Gaudets, LeBlancs, the Bourgs, the Terriots, and the Savoies are believed to have been recruited by d'Aulnay from their original home in Martaizé to colonize New France. wikipedia
