This riding was created by the British North America Act, 1867. It consisted initially of the County of Montmagny. In 1882, the northeastern part of the Township of Armagh in the County of Bellechasse, and the northeastern part of the township of Mailloux, were transferred from Bellechasse to Montmagny. In 1924, it was redefined to consist of the County of Montmagny and the Ile-aux-Grues and adjoining islands.

It was abolished in 1933 when it was redistributed into the Bellechasse and Montmagny—L'Islet electoral districts.
