It was a settlement in the early 18th century. Ships would enter the D'Escousse harbour from the Grandique Ferry and Lennox Passage.
D'Escousse has an active social community, centred around its community hall with distinctive sloped roof, built in 1989, and managed by the D'Escousse Civic Improvement Society. Since it is the largest hall in the area, it is a hub for social activity for the whole of Isle Madame and surrounding area.
