  • 'Jean Besland came to Canada from Rouen in Normandy, probably about 1675. According to the genealogist Godbout, he was baptized on 17 October 1655 at Saint-Eloi, one of the few parishes embraced by the city of Rouen at the time. His baptismal certificate says that he was the son of Jean Besland, who worked as a messenger between Roen and LeHavre, and of Isabeau Care (Elizabeth Cavran).'
