Junod, men of the Lord Bishop of Basel as noted in 1636

The men of Lignières who can bear arms (July 18, 1636)
(AENeuchâtel, D22 No 12. "Role of the men and families in the Town hall of Lignières)

In the Middle Ages, the town of Lignières had two lords, the lords of Neuchatel, and the Bishop of Basel. Following a transaction ..., the "Basler" abandoned all their rights in receiving from the Neuchâtel lords the collonges of Miécourt in Ajoie.

In the absence of extensive documentation before this agreement, it is not always easy to know which families depended from Neuchâtel, and which other from the diocese. To our knowledge, the following list is the only one to clear the count and the distinction between the two parts of the population of Lignieres. (Germain Hausmann).
