The Bauptois (to pronounce: bôtoi] is a small country of France which is located in the Cotentin in the province of Normandy. The localities which form part of it find all in the department of the Manche.
Bauptois draws its name from the commune of Baupte, old chief town of a Doyenné. It was before 1790 one of the four Archidiaconé S old the Diocèse of Coutances. The Archdeacon of Bauptois, secular Canon of the Cathedral of Coutances, had before the 15th century the ecclesiastical jurisdiction on the islands of the English Channel, Jersey and Guernesey.
It is with Bauptois that one determines the southernmost geographical limit of the Péninsule of Cotentin: it is a zone of easily flooded Marais the Hiver. These marshes are crossed by a small rich tortuous river many Affluent S: the Ditch. One counts there also an important forest with Saint-Saver-the-Viscount.
One regards the town of Carentan as the small current capital of Bauptois, with the detriment of Baupte.
The speech of Bauptois (or loceis of Bâoteis ) is an alternative of the dialect Cotentinais, component of the language Norman.
