MANOIR DE LA NOE BRIORD

VILLENEUVE-EN-RETZ - 44
It was therefore the seat of the Lordship of Noë Briord. It is through family ties that we come to a famous character: François de Lanoue Bras de Fer (1531—1591). He was born and baptized at the Chapelle Basse Mer, but was brought up in the Catholic religion, within his family in Fresnay. He was subsequently a remarkable Knight of HENRI IV. By remarrying, he takes the Protestant religion, and finds himself fighting the Catholics, which poses him a case of conscience and many difficulties. He was wounded and died at the siege of Lamballe (22) in 1591. Having been taken prisoner in another battle, during his internment, he wrote political and military speeches with three themes essential to each civilization: that of war, that of education and that of authority. HENRI IV learning of the death of his comrade in arms in Lamballe on August 3, 1591, he addressed this compliment: "He was a great man of war, and even more a great man of good". It should be noted that the manor of Noë Briord and its smallholdings still came under the Chatellenie de Bourgneuf.
