The old Duchemin estate La Madeleine (La Magdeleine) is located northwest of Tinchebray in the Lower Normandy region of France. The size of the estate during the 17th century is unknown, but based upon tax maps from the Napoleonic era, the estate included at least 5 acres.
The Act in Advance of Succession from 1661 describes a manor house at La Madeleine having a tower, and such a house still stands on the property. This house is probably the same one dating from the mid-1600s.
