Notes: The castle of Bouëx is located on the commune of Bouëx, east of Angoulême.The existence of the lords of Boueix is attested from the Middle Ages. In 1452, Jean de La Rochefoucauld donated this fief to the brothers of Livenne. In 1629 Bouex is sold to Jean Arnauld. The feudal castle, located near the church, dates from the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. The Arnauds, lords of Bouex, were an Angoumoisine family. Jean Arnaud was mayor of Angoulême in 1682, his son until 1686, and his nephew from 1721 to 1723. The land of Bouëx passed through marriage and inheritance to the family of Jovelle, which kept it for much of the Nineteenth century, and then passed to Jean de la Boutelière at the beginning of the twentieth century. The orangery of the castle, which was remarkable, was sold in 1893 to the city of Bordeaux.
