Pictures & Comments

In the early 1900's Helland (Helene) was the home of Jean Marie Le Sann and Jeanne Perrine Floch. Helland is a small acreage near the village of Treflez in Bretagne, France. Treflez, a distance of approximately 75 miles from the port of St. Malo, from where Jacques Cartier sailed in his search for the New World is in the "Departement de Finistere" in the Western part of Bretagne where it hugs the Atlantic Ocean along the English Channel. As in other countries in Europe, France was over-populated and most of the people lived in small communes on the outskirts of the villages. At the beginning of the 20th century Jean Marie and "Jeannie" were making plans for their children who by now were all grown, healthy and very ambitious and energetic. There was no room for expansion in the region so plans were made to immigrate to Canada and settle on homesteads. April 10, 1910, was perhaps the last time that the Le Sann family of that generation was all together. The first members of the Le Sann family Arrived in Canada from Bretagne, France, in 1909. Others arrived in 1910 and finally the youungest one and the parents arrived in 1912. Most were married in Bretagne, France, only Alain, the youngest one, married in Canada.

Initially, most settled on homesteads in the Margo, and Springside areas of Saskatchewan. Since then the family members and descendants have dissipated throughout Canada and elsewhere.
Note: See Yves Marie Le Sann page for some of the early grain harvesting equipment of the early 1930's. See Jean Pierre Le Sann for the burial site of Jean-Marie Le Sann.

Home of Jean-Marie Le Sann and his family at Hellen, in Treflez, Bretagne, France, the home was occupied by Ollivier family after Jean-Marie left in 1912, then the home was taken over by the Goulven family in 1947 the home totally renovated , but retained the exterior stone walls. According to Julien Goulven who renovated the home, the existing home was dirt floor, clay plaster on the stone walls. Excellent job done the Le Sann's would all be smiling in heaven. (June, 2001)
