It was from the fourteenth century that Masaedo first appeared in documents such as Macedo de Cavaleiros. It is probable that the fact that its granaries were knights was at the origin of this additive.
Undoubtedly the growth of the old settlement of Masaedo must have been enormous between the beginning of the eighteenth century and the second half of the nineteenth century, going from a simple “quinta” to county seat and village.
