TOWN PRESENTATION

  • Origins and History of Xertigny ...
  • Xertigny was founded about 60 BC during the Roman rule. Communication channels have been built (Baccarat to Bains-les-Bains), they are the source of a Roman camp: Certinium (a man named Certinius) who later became Xertigny.
  • In 730, during a stop at a farm in Xertigny, a nun named St. Walburga was a fountain that never dried up. Legend has it that one, spinning her distaff, she dropped her ball of wool, which began to roll into the coast and only stopped at the place of the present church. The ancestors chose St. Walburga later as the patroness of the parish and a relic was placed in the church.
  • On 1 October 1335, Xertigny and hamlets formed a community whose administration was entrusted to a mayor, four jurors and a dean. Their legal rights were acknowledged and a gibbet Xertigny rises Potet field (field of the post). Land rights were imposed.
  • During the Thirty Years War, Lorraine suffered much religious wars. The Protestant armies from Germany crossed the country by spreading ruin and carnage. Then in 1642, the plague slew a great part of the population. Large cemeteries were established in open country. That of Xertigny was on the way to the pond clumps. A Gothic cross is left.
  • The French Revolution: For the people to revolt in Paris, in the countryside July 26, 1789, 800 farmers in all villages invaded the office of the manor at Fontenoy-le-Château, destroying documents and records of the charges levied by lords. On February 26, 1790, France is divided into 83 departments, the Vosges in 9 districts, 60 cantons and 562 municipalities. Xertigny became the capital of Canton.
