• Mathieu Des Goutins, Lieutenant-General of Acadia: “The son of an inhabitant of Beaubassin, named Louis Morin, created a child with a demoiselle of that area. The parish priest, one Father Claude Trouve, initiated the investigation against him, heard witnesses, then decided against the accused Morin and imprisoned him. When the royal officers sent by M. de Menneval had arrived, it was decreed that the entire (Morin) clan be banished form Beaubassin and the from the colony; the father and mother, sisters, brothers, even the in-laws because one of them was reputed to have talked about M. Trouve and the demoiselle. All the possessions of these families were then arbitrarily confiscated and handed over to the father of the (violated) demoiselle without the benefit of any other legal proceedings.” The banishment, wherein the colony lost 19 people, rendered the cure Father Trouve so odious to the (other) inhabitants of Beaubassin that he was obliged to retire as the village pastor. He wanted to retire to Grand-Prek, but the inhabitants there refused to accept him. This affair caused considerable agitation as these 19 people were related to a third of the colony, forcing Father Trouve to eventually go to Port-Royal where the authority of Monsieur de Menneval squelched all further complaints against him. Father Godbout: “Since we can place the Morin family in Baie Des-Chaleurs from the springtime of 1688, it was in all likelihood during the previous winter that the scandal reported by Menneval and Des Goutins came to a head. Of eminent social status at Beaubassin there was only the family of Michel Le Neuf. Of the 4 daughters of the seigneur of Beaubassin, one only, Marie-Josepha, baptized at Trois-Rivieres on 4/19/1671, was of an age for an amorous affair ... The fact is that the seigneur of Beaubassin was not on the best terms with his charges, and the performance of 1688 was not of a nature to increase his prestige. In any case it was around this time that he ceased to live in Acadia. Few, moreover, followed him. The bride decline in this locality is due, in great part, to the departure of Pierre Morin and his next of kin: Pierre Morin, fils; Jacques Cochu and Rene Denau, his son-in-laws; Pierre Mercier, his brother-in-law; Pierre Gaudin and Pierre Pellerin, his nephews; Jean and Michel Chaisson, brothers-in-law of Pierre Morin, fils, etc.”
• Writes Mr. de Menneval, Governor with the Minister: “I was obliged to ship to France on the “Fripone”, a young boy named Louis Morin 26 years old, son of an inhabitant of Chignitou. He had deserved a harder punishment for the things of which he was marked. This business looked at a considerable family, which was satisfied with this punishment, Because we did not have law officers here, we could not continue punishment by the ordinary forms, and to do it in Quebec was not possible. I believe that the Court will approve my control. He will make a good sailor in France where he will be able to serve Roy well, and it was dangerous to leave him in this country.”
• The name is Belgic Gaul in origin and is derived from the Celtic word “mor” for the sea. It’s the same as Latin “mare” and modern French “mer”. The name refers to a people who live near the sea. The earliest reference to the people called Morin is in Julius Caesar’s Conquest di Gauli, ~60 B.C. They lived in the part of Europe closest to Britain – NW France, SW Belgium. Caesar uses the Latin plural when referring to them “morini”. It took his legions three years to conquer them and their allies before he begin to invade Britain, which was his objective. Caesar says they came against him with 30,000 warriors. Although he refers to them as a “tribe”, it should be pointed out that they lived in cities and villages protected by hill-forts. They were civilized enough to have produced their own gold coins, so they were more than just farmers. One early hill-fort city was called “Tremorin” [“tre” meaning “city”]. The legendary architect of King Arthur’s Camelot in some legends was called “Tremorinus.”
