Notes: The Manoir de la Petite-Haie is a manor located in Grand-Auverne, France.The monument is listed under historical monuments in 1984. The seigniory of La Haie or Haye gives its name to a family allied to that of Rougé, by the marriage of Guillaume de Rougé, lord of Rougé and Derval, with Macée de la Haye. The seigniory of La Haie depends initially on that of Vioreau. The manor house of La Grande-Haie was then abandoned for a manor built at the place called La Petite-Haie. Surrounded by high walls, it has a châtelet, a bread oven, common, a dovecote and a private chapel. Successive property of Thibaud de La Haie (about 1400), Hammel, Girard de Châteauvieux (forge director), Mézangé, Boisgelin de Cucé, Cathelinay de La Mostière, Leroux, Rochebrune and Blancpain de Saint-Mars . It should also be noted that the Cathelinais Des Marais remained for a while at La Petite-Haie (around 1789 and the last member of the family died in 1811). At the pediment, a skylight, there was still in 1914, a woman's head, representing Mary of Medici or Catherine.
