In the beginning…
Several hypotheses for the origin of Mésangueville :
-Comes from " My or " mas ", which means"house".
Thus it would be the house of a man named Engeville
-would mean maybe the house of the tit
-Mésanger would be man's name of Germanic or Frankish origin.
On the tracks of past…

Several peat bogs made exploited in the XIXth century.
