There are reports of early visits from the Basque, Portuguese, Spanish, aboriginals and others. Besides being a onetime capital (1662 to 1713) for the French in Newfoundland it also has an interesting history associated with the English (who also used it is as their capital), the Irish and, in more recent times, the Americans.
