As one may guess from its name, sailors of old thought the Isle of Demons a cursed place of lost souls and demons. Folks were abandoned there as punishment for their sins or crimes, as in the case of Marguerite de Roberval, who was left there when she became pregnant out of wedlock. She survived, leaving behind a cursed ring. The story was chronicled by Canadian author George Martin in his long poem “Marguerite, or The Isle of Demons.” The site has been featured on Creepy Canada.
