Annois is a commune in the department of Aisne in the Hauts-de-France region of northern France.

The inhabitants of the commune are known as Alnetuns or Alnetunes[1]


Annois is located some 33 km north-west of Laon and 30 km east of Roye. It is accessed by road D937 from Cugny in the west and continuing east to Flavy-le-Martel. There is also the D32 from Saint-Simon to Flavy-le-Martel passing through the north-east of the commune. Branching from this road is the D431 which goes to the village. A railway line passes through the heart of the commune from west to east but the nearest station is the Flavy-le-Martel station outside the eastern border of the commune. The commune is mostly farmland with some forest on the northern and southern edges of the commune.[2]

The Canal de Saint-Quentin passes just to the north of the commune and there are large ponds in the north of the commune connected to the canal. A stream flows through the length of the commune from south to north connecting to the network of ponds.[2]

In 2010, the commune had 383 inhabitants. The evolution of the number of inhabitants is known through the population censuses conducted in the town since 1793. From the 21st century, a census of municipalities with fewer than 10,000 inhabitants is held every five years, unlike larger towns that have a sample survey every year.[Note 1]

Population of Annois

Notable people linked to the commune[edit]

Charles Augustus Pinguet (also called Badinguet) was born in Annois on 1 July 1826. On 1 February 1840 aged 14 he began working as a "cad" (valet service in the army[4]) working as a painter on the maintenance of the Château de Ham. He became a friend of Prince Louis Napoleon Bonaparte during his imprisonment there for six years. On 25 May 1846 the future Napoleon III dressed in Pinguet's clothes: blue pants, blue cloth coat, hat, and shoes. Pinguet gave him a board soiled with lime mortar and plaster. On 25 May 1846 at six in the morning, Napoleon's escape began and he was in England by the next day.

  1. ^ At the beginning of the 21st century, the methods of identification have been modified by law No. 2002-276 of 27 February 2002 [1] Archived 2016-03-06 at the Wayback Machine., the so-called "law of local democracy" and in particular Title V "census operations" which allow, after a transitional period running from 2004 to 2008, the annual publication of the legal population of the different French administrative districts. For municipalities with a population greater than 10,000 inhabitants, a sample survey is conducted annually, the entire territory of these municipalities is taken into account at the end of the period of five years. The first "legal population" after 1999 under this new law came into force on 1 January 2009 and was based on the census of 2006.
