Sainte-Claire was established for seasonal fishermen during the Denys epoch by the Recollet order, and is illustrated by des Meulles on the map of 1690. The site was probably am ancient PaleoIndian burial ground. The site is on the western side of the Island, along the shore, in the Middle Room. Cliff has eroded massively, the cape has fallen down here on the Plage-Du Val, directly below. The site was accessible to the beach and a central fishery operation took place nearby in the lot known as "The Middle [fishery] Room", a sunny spot coveted by the Valpy dit Janvrin, O'Brien, Du Val and other settlers.
