History[edit]

Baudricourt, Église Saint-Remy.

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.

In July 1767 letters patent of Louis XV allowed that the name of Bassompierre be attributed to the seigniory of Baudricourt. Finally, (after the French Revolution the municipality takes again its current name in 1790.

Baudricourt belonged to the bailliage of Mirecourt. Its church, dedicated to Saint Remi, was in from the diocese of Toul, deanery of Porsas. The cure was at the collation of the chapter of Remiremont et au concours.

Baudricourt belonged to the canton of Rouvres-en-Xaintois from 1790 to the year X, then around 1800 to the canton of Vittel, and finally, to that of Mirecourt as today.

Population[edit]

Population of the Municipality

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.[2] For the municipality, the first exhaustive census under the new scheme was carried out in 2007.[3]

Heraldry[edit]

This is the coat of arms of the lords of Baudricourt. When the old barony was erected as a marquisate in 1719, it took the name and arms (three chevrons Gules on field of silver) of the Bassompierre. Today, the commune has taken over the arms of its former lords[4]
