The name Baldrici curtis is attested as early as the 10th century. The erection of the marquisate of Baudricourt in 1719 had the effect of changing the name of the village which was called Saint-Menge until 1766.

The evolution of the number of inhabitants is known through the population censuses carried out in the commune since 1793. As from 1 January 2009, the legal populations of the communes are published annually in the framework of a census which is now based on an annual information gathering, concerning successively all the communal territories during a period of five years. For municipalities with less than 10 000 inhabitants, a census survey covering the entire population is carried out every five years, with the legal populations in the intermediate years being estimated by interpolation or extrapolation. For the municipality, the first exhaustive census under the new scheme was carried out in 2007.
