The first known reference to them was on April 4, 1281 for obtaining their freedom under the law of Beamont "Freiheitsbrief nach Böhmerrecht“. The freedom of Clemency probably happened in 1260.After the occupation of France (1794 – 1815), the “Hoheit Kerschen” changed in “municipalité cantonale Bascharage” with the townships of Bascharage, Clemency, Mamer, Garnich and Dippach. This Township came out in 1799 as the “Mairie de Bascharage” with the towns of Bascharage, Hautchaurage and Linger. Their first mayor was Pierre Clemont in 1800. The first mayor of Clemency was Pierre Decker (until 1830).Geological does Bascharage not belong to the Minette Region however they have a pretty tense relation with the iron industry. The Iron crisis in the 70s was responsible for the big loss of work for the citizens.Even so, the town has known a regularly evolution with the arrival of enterprises like General Motors or Luxguard.
