Monasticon Praemonstratense (I, 370)

Approximate modern location: There are two locations with this name, relatively close to one another:

1.  Rueyres between Chardonne and Corsier, near Vevey, Switzerland.  

2.  Rueyres or "Rueret", north of the community of Puidoux, to the east of Lac de Bret, Switzerland. 

Elm-Number [See below]: None.  

Other Comments: Both of these houses were dependencies of Lac de Joux. An interesting story concerning 2. above is that in 1249 the Holy See wished to charge it taxes, but the house "pretended" to be only a parish.  After that, the Prior of this house was always referred to as "Magister" / Master!
