Guyon, or Dion or Denis, dit La Vallée, son of Pierre Chiasson, a farmer, and Marie Péroché, was born at La Rochelle, France, in c1638. Guyon came to Acadia and settled at Port-Royal by c1666, when he married Jeanne Bernard there. They had eight children, including four sons who created families of their own. Three of their daughters married into the Morin, Poirier dit de France, and Breau families. Guyon was not listed in the first Acadian census of 1671 because he had moved to Mouchecoudabouet, now Musquodoboit Harbor, near present-day Halifax, by June 1668 and was still there in October 1674. They moved on to Chignecto, where Jeanne died during the early 1680s. Guyon remarried to Marie-Madeleine, daughter of Pierre Martin of Sillery, at Québec in October 1683. They settled at Chignecto. Marie-Madeleine gave him no more sons but four more daughters, all born at Chignecto, three of whom married into the Carret, Pothier, De La Forestrie, and Pineau families. Guyon died probably at Chignecto by c1693, when his wife remarried there; he died in his mid-50s. One of his daughters by his second wife moved to Île St.-Jean, today's Prince Edward Island, by the 1720s and was among the earliest European settlers on the island. Another daughter by the second wife married a Canadian and settled at Rimouski on the lower St. Lawrence.
