      "Jacques Bourgeois, one of the most prosperous inhabitants of Port-Royal, began developing a new colony around 1672 on one of the extensions of Baie Francaise (Fundy), known today as Cumberland Basin, which the Indians called Chignectou...
      Bourgeois set up two sons and three sons-in-law on his establishment, a grassy slope on the south bank of the Missagouash River between Pointe Beausejour and present-day Amherst... while 22-year old Pierre Arsenault (Arceneaux), who had arrived in 1671 with the first contingent of French settlers since the English occupation of 1654, became Bourgeois' pilot for his coastal trade."
