Originally a small group of original Acadian settlers from Arichat settled here and in the early 1800's some Irish families also settled in the region. Before 1785, John and Paul Bushee were living in the vicinity of the harbour in addition to the Decoast or DeCost family. In 1811 these individuals who previously lived in "Harbour au Bouchee" were given grants of land by the Crown - Philistine, John Baptist and James De Coast, Bernard Benwaugh (Benois) and Paul Bushee, Charles LeBlanc and John Baptist Melon and George Minette
