leurs biens et leur foi les aide à traverser les périodes creuses. Les besoins spirituels leurs étaient donnés des prêtres en visite de l'le par Madame, de Guysborough et de Tracadie. En 1843, l'Église Saint-Joseph Félix, en 1876 l'Église Saint-Joseph fut construite à Charlos Cove et enfin en 1893 l'Église Saint-Pierre fut érigée à Larry's River. Aujourd'hui, construite à Port on trouve encore plusieurs noms des familles de ces temps-là, jumelés à d'autres noms dont les membres sont devenus depuis des membres clés de ces communautés. Quoique la pêcherie a connu un changement draconnien, beaucoup de gens dépendent toujours de celle-ci pour leur gagne-pain. Plusieurs membres de ces familles ont dû quitter la région pour gagner leur vie à d'autres endroits dans le monde.

Ils aiment toujours revenir en visite et d'exprimer leur fierté d'être de descendance Acadienne - une fierté qui est toujours vivante chez eux. Il nous fait grandement plaisir de raconter cette histoire à quiconque veut l'écouter. Vive l'Acadie!

Middle Inset:
CHARLOS COVE was settled about the year 1760, and named after one of the first Acadian settlers, Charles Richard, a fifth generation grandson of Michel Richard, who first came to Acadia in 1652 from Saintonge, France and settled in Belleisle, along the Annapolis River. After the expulsion of the Acadians in 1755 from Nova Scotia, many of the Acadians were deported throughout North America and Europe. In 1763 these same Acadians that survived the deportation were allowed to return to Nova Scotia, but were not allowed to settle on their former lands, so they resettled in very remote areas of the province, such as Charlos Cove.

In times of hardships and need the Acadians of Charlos Cove relied on one another as well as the Mi'kmaq aboriginal people to survive the harsh conditions of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The Acadian settlers in this French community had the spirit and dedication to provide to their people many traditions and much pride in their heritage. The families of Charlos Cove were proud pioneering people, who held close the traditions of their exiled ancestors and show strength and unity in their small French speaking village.
