The town was formed by the merger of Broye-lès-Pesmes, Aubigney, and Montseugny in 1972.
Broye-lès-Pesmes was a major settlement of the Sequani tribe in the pre-Roman and Roman era, known as Magetobria or Admagetobria. Up to the 19th century, the town was called Moigte-de-Broie, which was derived from its ancient name.
