The HMS Canceaux was used by Captain Henry Mowatt to bombard Falmouth Neck, in 1775.  Canceaux was a 16-gun hydrographic survey sloop. Its original job was conducting coastal surveys of Atlantic Canada and New England.  The name Canceaux comes from a fishing village in Nova Scotia. The village is now known by its modern spelling as Canso, but was also known as Canseau and Canceaux, depending on the map.  The name Canso came from the Mi’kmaq word kamsook which means “opposite the lofty cliff.”
