The Landes Manoir to Bouchemaine
The castle of the Moors in Bouchemaine
Delicious Castle of the Moors, curious mansion formerly surrounded by a defensive wall (of embrasures are and part of the entrance) is a construction of the second half of the 16th century: the long facade, terminated by two Gables rondelis and two thin turrets placed on horns, is surmounted by a high Pavilion containing a staircase straight rampthe small House that occupies the top view a wonderful panorama on Angers and the Loire hills. A loggia 'double-decker' Cap du perron on Court, Park side, a sleeping bridge crosses old moat.
The history of this House begins for us in 1610, with a first owner, noble Pierre BRETEAU, honourable woman husband Claude DUPONT... They bought it? They hold her inheritance? Or even, is rescinded - they had built at the beginning of their marriage? It will be in any case to their son Pierre, died before 1635 and whose elderly widow Catherine VALTERE made 27 XI 1673 a stone cross at the crossroads of the mass on the edge of the current road plum.
Their daughter, Perrine, married Gilbert of MARTINEAU, Lord of the Sauvagère and Saint-Georges-des-Gardes and the Galonniere in Faye d'Anjou which in 1654 is sponsor of the big Bell of Bouchemaine. Widower; he remarried with Anne by CARION.
From his first marriage, Pierre-Aimé of MARTINEAU, who lived in the Landes in 1793 (see family tree) married 27 IV 1720 Angers Madeleine FROMAGEAU de GATINE, which he left widow and childless. In 1753; his only heir is his half-sister Françoise, married to their cousin Louis-Dauphin of MARTINEAU, teaches vessels to the King: they have two children, Louis-Dauphin, marquis de FROMENTIÈRES and Madeleine-Aimée, wife of the count of DOMMAIGNE. A trial will oppose the fine brothers: to admit that M.de DOMMAIGNE seems to have been of the most litigious FROMENTIÈRES will do it, which is not very nice, lock up during seven months in 1776, by letter of cachet, at the Hospital of St-Méen in Brittany.
M.de DOMMAIGNE died in 1792, he had 12 children of which one, Jean-Louis, bodyguard of the King in 1768, left a name in the history of the war in the Vendée as Commander of the Cavalry, he was killed at the capture of Saumur VI 1793 19.
The Landes changing hands, then pass to a wealthy bourgeois family of Angers 2 Ferdinand LACHESE-LOLLIVREL, negotiating, president of the commercial court, municipal councillor of Angers, which son Ferdinand, banker, who after his marriage in 1815 with Augustine LÉCHALAS will take the name of LACHESE-LECHALAS. His death des Landes will return to his niece, Ms. FERRAN (1882), and then pass a Mr Armand BOUVIER BANGILLON eminent law professor who came and settled in the castle of the Moors with his wife. He died April 28, 1925 buried lies in Bouchemaine cemetery.
In recent decades the Castle and its adjoining farm belonged to the Angevin family Turkish, which Jean Turkish (1923-2005) was Mayor of Angers during numerous hosts.
However, abandoned the castle of the Moors was truly vandalized.
In 1985, a very short revival. the Castle enjoyed a semblance of Interior restoration in the form of a discotheque in fashion today, manicured, the castle of the Landes seems to have found its deserved splendor (we leave it courteously to the new owner, to explain if he wishes...)
