English:
Settled, 1629, by Captain Charles Daniel, and site of an early Jesuit Mission. Selected, 1713, as a naval base and one of the principal places in Isle Royale, named Port Dauphin and strongly fortified. Its importance declined with the choice, 1719, of Louisbourg as the capital.
French:
Fondeé en 1629 par le capitaine Charles Daniel, Sainte-Anné fut l'une des premières missions Jésuites. Base navale fortifiée sous le nom de Port-Dauphin (1713) et chef-lieu de l'Ile Royale, son importance s'effaça devant Louisbourg devenue capitale en 1719.
