Though inhabited from the stone age, the existence of the village first dates from the Romans. One of the merchants who followed Caesar and his camp to Catenoy, placed himself on the site of the modern village. The name of the village derives from the Latin Monnachivilla, "settlement of the monks", which is Moineville in French. Monks inhabited this territory in the tenth and eleventh centuries. The Abbey of Chaalis, the Abbey of Lannoy and the priory of Wariville possessed benefices here.
The Church of Saint-Denis is the oldest monument in the village of Mogneville. It was proclaimed a historic building by a decree of July 1937. The current building is a reconstruction of the XII structure. First it was reconstructed into a Roman church, later on - into Gothic.
