Cherveux

Cherveux is a commune in the Deux-Sèvres department in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region in western France.Origins of CherveuxPrehistoric period : Flint tools buried in the plain testify that the place was inhabited during prehistoric times.Roman period : Some vestiges attest that the Romans occupied some placesThe name of Cherveux : is of Celtic origin, which would indicate that the area originated at a very ancient date. This village was first known under the name of Carvium in 1100, then, a century later as Cherveox and Cheveras until the fifteenth century. It then became Cherveaux, then, by 1603, Chevreoux and later, Cherveus. Then, it was called St Pierre of Cherveux into the Eighteenth century before being only simply Cherveux. Its name would come from hemp . Since this plant was very abundant in this region, many people made their living as weavers and manufacturer of rope).Cherveux probably owes its existence to a monastery that was settled close to the "motte féodale" that was later to become the powerful fortress of the Lusignans. Monks that lived in it were driven out during the wars that ravaged the Poitou. The monastery has been destroyed and on the site now stands a church that rises on the remains of the ancient monastery, known as St-Pierre's de Poitiers cathedral. Stones that have been found in the church graveyard are shaped like those of Civaux and Nanteuil. In a stable of the castle farm, there is a window that leads to the ruins of the ancient monastery.
