It was also in this castle that the wife of Jacques d'Armagnac, Count de la Marche, mother of Louis d'Armagnac, duke of Nemours, came to bed in 1471, for in the act of sale of the land of Sainte-Feyre, in 1609, is said to be "done at the chastel of Sainte-Feyre, in one of the chambers of Icelluy," called the chamber of Nemours.

In 1609, the property is sold to the Mérigot who occupy important functions in Marche but also in Paris. The estate is erected as a marquisate for their benefit.
Around 1730, Sainte Feyre, according to a saying of the country, is "the Versailles de Guéret", its castle indeed is about the capital of the Marche that the palace built by the great king is at the capital of France. In the confession and enumeration given to the king by Francis Merigot, lord of Sainte Feyre, in 1729, it is said that within the walls of this park is a chapel, sacred, endowed and founded by the predecessors and authors of the said of Saint -Feyre, in honor of Saint Hubert.
Alexandre Philippe François Mérigot, chevalier, marquis of Sainte Feyre, Lord of Clameyrat, seneschal, grand bailli of La Marche married on 6 June 1758 Marie Catherine de Soudeilles. He presided over the general assembly of the three orders of the seneschalsy of the Haute-Marche held at Gueret in 1789.
In 1770 their son Achilles was born, who was the last Marquis of Sainte Feyre of the Mérigot family.
