For most the XII century, the seigneury of Cros stayed under direct dependence of the bishops of Lodève until 1562.

The bishop René de Birague sold the seigneury of Cros to Jacquesd' Albesquier, consul of Lodève from 1562 till 1586.

He occupied the rank of first Consul when in October, 1585, the city of Lodève was taken by the duke of Montmorency.

Jacques d' Albesquier dealt with the duke, then plotted against him and was put in the secret in La Couvertoirade in 1586.

The seigneury of Cros was then sold to Pierre de Julien who is at the origin of the construction of the Castle.
