Hamlet of Rif jany

Rif jany, takes its name from the stream (rif, a word certainly inherited from the Saracens). One can also read "rif" as Sur la rive. Here, in relation to the great lake Saint Laurent which filled the valley in the 11th century.
Above Rif Jany is the hamlet of La Condamine: the origin of this name is to be found in the Middle Ages. At that time, the seigneuries consisted of tenures operated by a tenant and the reserve. The latter is cultivated by the lord or his farmer and is exempt from duties. In the Middle Ages, these reserves were called "Condamines" in the cartularies (collections of copies of acts attesting to the privileges of a person or a community).
