Toponymy

The name Avirey comes from a Roman man's name Avirius [5]

Older versions have been attested: Avireium in 1081, Avirey in 1793, and Avirey-Luigé in 1801. [6]

History

Avirey-Lingey was created through the merger of two parishes, Avirey and Lingey, after the French revolution. A legend tells of a patron saint named Saint Phal who lived in the commune during the 6th century and is registered in the Roman Martyrology. He promoted the fertility of women. [7]

Its vineyard was appreciated by King Henri IV who invited his minister, Maximilien de Béthune, Duke of Sully, to come and drink a glass of his "good wine from Avirey". [8]

During the 17th century there were only few people in the area due to epidemics and famine.

In 1872, Avirey-Lingey consisted of four holiday inns, five grocers, a mill, and a traditional oil mill. [7]

Since 2004 the municipality has launched several major projects related to the conservation and preservation of local heritage, in particular its two main buildings: the church and the town hall. [9] The church was closed in 2004 and a notice of unfitness signed in 2006. [10]

In January 2013, the Mayor announced the development of a socio-cultural hall and the repair of the roof of the Town Hall. [11]
