Chezzetcook, comprising Head of Chezzetcook, West Chezzetcook, East and Lower East Chezzetcook, is located on the coast of Nova Scotia, in Halifax County[1]. The first French settlers were mentioned there as early as 1699, and by 1714, Claude Petitpas, ancestor of the Petitpas families of Chezzetcook, was living in the area[2].

The area was abandoned, but in 1764, the first permanent Acadian settlers arrived, following the end of the Seven Years War.
