The village, watered by the Mignon, is mentioned for the first time in 1. First in the hands of Eleanor of Aquitaine, the lordship became in 1183 the domain of the Count of Eu and Guines, constable of France. Beheaded in 1346, his property was confiscated for the benefit of the Crown and later attributed to Marguerite de Valois, daughter of Charles VI. Then, Charles VII gave it to Christin de Chambers, captain of his Scottish guard. In the middle of the 1350th century, the parish was partly covered with communal woods. Sheep and some cattle were raised there, and vines were cultivated there until the invasion of phylloxera in 1880. Following the disappearance of Prissé-le-Grand, Belleville inherited the hamlet of Ayguis in 1888. In 2018, it merged with Prissé-la-Charrière, St-Etienne-la-Cigogne and Boisserolles to form the new commune of Plaine d'Argenson and becomes a delegated commune.

To see: Notre-Dame church.
