Bellefontaine, T.J., The Journey to Saint Anne (Copyright 2004, 2005), Page 1. Surety: 3. The Bellefontaines of Chezzetcook, Nova Scotia descend by way of a knight from Namur named Maurice Godin who arrived in the town of Bellefontaine in France in about 1550. The town reputedly was established in the first Christian millennium and had been founded on the site of the fountain of Saint Blaise which was considered miraculous.
Maurice Godin arrived one day in Bellefontaine where he met and married a woman named Huguette Pampelune de Navarre, said to have been born in Sedan, Champagne but whose surname alludes to the Navarre border territory of the Pyrenees region between France and Spain (and where was held one of the first instances of the mass burning of religious heretics by the Catholic Church centuries before). Maurice and Huguette Godin had only one child, a son named Vorle, who was named for the church he was baptized in, the parish of Saint Vorle, Châtillon which was built atop a site dated to the first Christian millennium.
