Autreppes is a French commune in the department of Aisne in the Picardy region of northern France and in the natural region of Thiérache.

Geography[edit]

Autreppes is located some 35 km east by north east of Saint-Quentin and 15 km west of Hirson. It can be accessed by the D31 road running from Saint-Algis in the west through the heart of the commune and the village and continuing east to Etreaupont. There are also many country roads covering the commune and accessing it from all directions. The commune consists entirely of farmland.[1]

The Oise river traverses the northern part of the commune from east to west. Only one stream flows into it from the north in the commune.[1]

History[edit]

The area was called Altripia in 876. Autreppes was part of the former royal estate given to the Abbey of Saint-Denis in 915. Then the village of Autreppes became a lordship until the French Revolution. In 1790 the commune was part of the Canton of Marly in the district of Vervins but in 1801 became part of the Canton of Vervins in the Arrondissement of Vervins.

Demography[edit]

In 2010 the commune had 187 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]

Notes[edit]

  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], 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.
