About Joseph Goguen / Guéguen, I

Joseph Guéguen(Goguen) is one of the founders of Cocagne, N.B., Canada, and an important figure in the resettlement of the displaced Acadians along the Eastern New Brunswick coast.

From "Acadian World Congress" Published by The Telegraph Journal:

"… The founder of the Goguen family in Acadia was Joseph Gueguen, born in Brittany in 1741. He came to Acadia in 1753 as a protégé of the abbe Manach. In 1755 he managed to reach Quebec where he studied at the seminary until 1758. Having returned to Acadia, he was imprisoned at Fort Cumberland where he married Anne Arsenault. Around 1767, Joseph became the leader of the first settlers of Cocagne in New Brunswick. His influence was felt from Richibucto Village to Barachois because he had a superior education and spoke English, Micmac and Latin."
