Common north-east of Caen on Divette.

Petiville The village was the scene of the famous battle of Varaville (1057) between the troops of the King of France, Henry 1 (based on the hill Bastembourg) to those of Duke William (based in Bavent) which ended in a victory overwhelming the Duke of Normandy, the battle marked a turning point in the foreign policy of William, who is now preparing to conquer England.

The arms of Petiville: The Arms "Silver Lion of mouth with three vine leaves vert put 2 and 1," Arms of the Family of Late Petiville are brought by the village since 1999 after agreement from Mr. Petiville .

The first written records, proving the existence of the village dates from 1198, there are the oldest form of the name Parva Villa in the "Magni-Rotuli 69-2 (Great Roles of the Exchequer of Normandy, leaves parchment glued end to end and kept a roll - Lat. rolutus).

In 1675 mention is made of a door near the altar of St. Blaise, the cult of St. Blaise was therefore already in the 17th century, yet today every year the parish celebrates the first Sunday in February. On November 9, 1849, the City Council decides to build a steeple for the church. The tower contains three bells.

  • City Council (former Rectory): The former rectory was missing today in the cemetery, between the door and the wall current row with the Mairie (Napoleonic cadastre). In 1839, he mentions a discussion with Mr. St. Pierre for the construction of a new parsonage. In Proceedings of the City Council, February 19, 1851 is referred to the construction of the rectory.
  • The washing: The wash of the town was covered with a roof in 1862 and was surrounded by a fence. In 1886, work to ensure their tightness.
