Orrouy, formerly Orouer, and ancienuement Oratorium, one of the first strongholds of Valois, were under lobedience of noble the chatel of Donneval or Dunval, missing today.
The church and its incomes were subjected to the abbey of Saint-Crepin-the-Large of Soissons, when the Norman ones penetrerent in the valley of Autumn. The Benedictines placerent themselves incontinent under the protection of the counts de Crepy which, the danger passes, are emparerent of all the field, under pretext of make discharge the right of sauvement.
In 995, Gaultier-the-White, whose brother was bishop of Beauvais, returned the fields invaded. Those of Orrouy and Eluats are expressly indicate in the act of restitution.
A local, sizeable version to the legendary point of view, reports that the church of Orrouy (perhaps Oratorium or gathered the faithful clans the first times of Christianity), was placee above the village. As this church threatened ruin, one wanted to withdraw the holy things from them, but it was impossible to remove a statue of virgin who was made suddenly so heavy that no man power could move it. However one of the feathers composing the crown of the statue was detachee; suspended a long time in the airs by the wind which had it enlevee, it had finally come to fall down dimension of the valley, on a point then uninhabited. It was manifest for all that the will express of holy was that this place was selected to raise a new church there.
No one did not have thus guard to be opposed has this will, although the place indicates was a ground abrupt (This building is dark and partly buries, because one descends seven steps to penetrate in the interior).
Hardly the resolution to obey holy it was taken that the statue losing its mysterious gravity could be transportee and placee then in the new building.
The church of Orrouy, dediee has holy Remy and has holy Charles Borromee, has many stained glasses of which some carry the date of 1542. One of the bells, carrying the year of 1593, comes from Champlieu.
The manor of Orrouy, which had formerly a vault particuliere, east flanks of four turrets which give him a fort good air. Place in the center of the village, this manor house offers charming points of view which extend to far on laughing the valley from Autumn.
If we believe of it a sizeable writer who besides does not manage aucunes evidence, the strong castle of Donneval or Dunval would have. exist before the invasion of the Romans, and these conquerors would have strengthens it and would have made of it the residence of a prefect of Letes.
Become the division of one of the companions of Clovis, this worthy manor, of which there do not remain any more vestiges, would have become, during the institution of the feudal mode, the stronghold dominating of the region, and consequently would have the territories of Orrouy, Champlieu and several other dependences.
