Marchenoir is a commune in the Loir-et-Cher department of central France. The nearby forest of Marchenoir was the site of L'Aumône Abbey, a Cistercian daughter house of Cîteaux Abbey. The Earl of Buckingham stayed at the Abbey in 1380 whilst his army was quartered in the Forest.[1]

History[edit]

In 1650 Claude Pajon was appointed to be pastor to the Reformed Church at Marchenoir.[2]
