Transcription of a 1776 manuscript:
“St Romain, 250 inhabitants, 748 hectares, 163 ares, 218 centiares, 5 k from Monpazier ; 41 k from Bergerac ; and 2 k from Lolme.
Soil: Upper Cretaceous, ferruginous chalky limestone.
This commune is situated on a slope washed by the Beyonne stream, bad soil; red rocks, iron mine; healthy air.
The church is annexed to Lolme. The patron saint is Saint Romain of Blaye, November 26 (R.P. Carles) and perhaps Saint Romain martyr, August 9 (St Romanus) (Franc. 1556) ; Saint Rome (XVIème) (of Gour).

 

The church is small. It consists of a nave and a panelled chapel. There is only what is strictly necessary for worship.
The cemetery is adequate, the presbytery is in working order – Curé MALAURIE (August 1776). A village called Le Monge, which reminds one of a monastery or a monk.”
