Saint-Martin-sur-le-Pré is a small village of the Marne.
The evidence of human occupation in this territory date back to prehistoric times. Indeed it was discovered in the nineteenth century objects which were able to date and that date back over 5,000 years. But archaeological excavations have also proved the existence of a village in the Gallo-Roman era. If the common name in the sixteenth century it is because the village was surrounded by a large meadow along the Marne, which served as common grazing animals of the village.
