Point de Bute, New Brunswick
The Acadian Pierre Buhot settled here in the late 1600s, and the original name was Pont à Buhot which evolved, via Pont à Buot to the current name. Opposite his house was a bridge over the Missaguash River, leading to the Tantramar Marsh. It was near the outlet of a stream, Rivière à l'Ours and a redoubt, which was the first point of attack by Monckton's army in 1755 as it advanced from Fort Lawrence to cross the Missaguash river on the way to attack Fort Beausejour.
