Les Vieux Jeunes

Once upon a time, in a distant duchy, there was a castle that received a new guest… Before dawn or when it begins to fall, the fox goes hunting alone. Symbol of cunning, it hunts on the lookout.

Once his prey is near him, he jumps on it and kills it with a bite on the neck. He plays with it, shreds it, sheds blood… before eating it.

La Perrière is an old fief that belonged to Jacques de Mascon (1441-1460), then Jacques Nepveu, around 1530\. A confession of 1562 also mentions this name. Several succeed each other in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries: Madelon de la Jaille (1598), Charles de Godeles (1653). The latter had the chapel and part of the castle built according to a confession of 1685\. His widow sold the land in 1714 to Louis Péan, Councillor of the King, Receiver General of the farms. Then he was bought by Philippe-Guillaume LECLERC, whose daughter Françoise-Marguerite married in the chapel André-Jean BACHELIER de BERAY, ordinary master of the Chambre des Comptes de Bretagne, on August 12, 1748.
