The concise description of the history of Montbrun is largely based on notary archives, some (few) documents that survived the French Revolution of 1789 when the people destroyed and burned all that was related to the nobility and the clergy (who, at the time, were the only ones who could read) and some chronicles that were found on the other side of the channel (England).

Veritate dubitandi venimus !
