The smallest commune of Niort Agglo is so named to distinguish it from that of Thorigné, close to Celles-s.-Belle. In the Middle Ages, the lordship depended on the election of St-Jean-d'Angély, the generality of La Rochelle and the lordship of Frontenay, hence a triple belonging to the provinces of Saintonge, Aunis and Poitou, generator of complications. In 2019, the village merged with Usseau and Priaires to form the new commune of Val-du-Mignon and became a delegated commune whose capital is Usseau.
Thorigny has Notre-Dame church at its heart and, with the smallest number of inhabitants, forms a large family. Focused on agriculture and livestock, the village organizes farmers' markets and its country festival every summer, the last weekend of August.
