Geography

Balnot-la-Grange is located some 35 km south by south-east of Troyes and 22 km north-east of Tonnerre. Part of the southern border is the departmental border between Aube and Yonne. Access to the commune is by road D84 from Chesley in the west which passes through the village and continues north-east to Arrelles. The D34 from Maisons-lès-Chaource to Villiers-le-Bois passes through the west of the commune. The D125 comes from Bragelogne-Beauvoir in the south-east and passes through the village continuing north-west to join the D34 in the commune. The D17 from Pargues to Bagneux-la-Fosse passes through the north-eastern corner of the commune. The commune is mostly farmland with some forests west of the village. [3]

The Marve river flows through the commune and the village from the south and continues north until it joins the Hozain near La Chapelle-d'Oze. [3]

History

In Gallo-Roman times three Roman roads left from Vertault (Vertillum, an important centre south of Côte-d'Or) towards the north. One of these ways passed through Chaource via Balnot-la-Grange.

Until the 16th century Balnot had only a barn - i.e. a farm belonging to the Abbey of Quincy. When the Abbey could not reclaim this ruined barn it decided to break up the land and, according to an agreement in 1518, made a gift to every person wishing to settle there. The donation consisted of an arpent to build a house and outbuildings through a censive for the dwelling, a royalty for the fireplace, and the right to cultivate the land. New residents received the right to use the woods and a pond belonging to the abbey and, in addition, to earn release from serfdom. It was stipulated that the people could not assemble without the authorization of the abbot.

In 1775 the French economist Pierre Samuel du Pont de Nemours recommended three levels of assembly:

The Royal settlement of 23 June 1787 required that each election be divided into six electoral arrondissements. That law was randomly applied and so the election of Bar-sur-Aube was divided into twelve arrondissements including that of Balnot-la-Grange. Its existence was brief as it served as an electoral boundary for only one vote.
