The first written mention of the town date from 814 to about a division of property of the Abbey of Saint-Denis. Fontenay, who was then called Fontanicum does Fontenay-en-Parisis this name since 1904.

The village lies at the heart of a region, called France from the 12th century and marked by the Oise, the Seine, the Marne, and Thève bottle. It was formed by all the fertile plains of St. Denis, Gonesse, Mitry, Roissy, Louvre and Le Mesnil Aubry.

Once the plain of France was watered by the Louvre (now the Croult) Celtic word which means lumber yard.
