Toury-Lurcy is a commune in the Nièvre department in central France.[2]

History[edit]

From the 12th century, the village of Toury-Lurcy (formerly Thoriacum or Toriaco) was one of the fiefdoms of the Counts of Thoury (hence its name).

In 1161, the bishop of Nevers, Bernard of Saint-Saulge, recognized by letters sent to the abbot of St. Martin, Autun, that this church in his diocese was the property of the abbey, which was confirmed in 1164 by a bull of Pope Alexander III, then a refugee in France.[3]The family of Richard de Soultrait were the local lords.

The town was created in 1823 from the merger of Toury and Lurcy-sur-Abron.

The Château de Toury-Lurcy, rebuilt in 1776 on a medieval site, is classified and registered as a historical monument.
