Origin/meaning

When Samuel de Champlain and other European explorers began to explore area that became New Brunswick in early 1600s, they were met by Maliseet and mi'kmaq people who inhabit area and live along its rivers and coasts. Early French pioneers established settlements at head of Bay of Fundy and up. John River Valley as far as present-day Fredericton and entire Maritime region Acadia. Area Was Subject Of Numerous Conflicts Between French And British Empires During Late 1600s And Early 1700s. Region Was Ceded To Great Britain In 1710. Following final defeat of France in 1755, more than 5 000 Acadians were forced into exile from their lands by British. Some of them escape to what was then remote and relatively uninhabited coastline along Gulf of. Lawrence and Baie des Chaleurs, where these settlements grow and thrive. Today, this region is known as Acadian Peninsula. In 1783, refugees loyal to British Crown began to land at mouth of. John River in what was then part of Province of Nova Scotia. They were fleeing from persecution in aftermath of American Revolution and came from as far south as Georgia and as far North as Massachusetts. These refugees were not all of British origin, but German, Dutch and Black Loyalists. Black Loyalists include number of freed slaves, but there were small number of Loyalists who brought their slaves with them to New Brunswick. Discontentment with government in Halifax led to establishment of areas north of Bay of Fundy as New Province of New Brunswick in 1784. By 1785, so many refugees had land and settled at mouth of. John River that King granted charter to New City of Saint John, first incorporated city in Canada. Capital Was Established At Fredericton, 114 Km Up. John River. Scottish and Irish settlers began to settle in New Brunswick in early 1800s. Large Number Of Irish, Escaping From Hardships Of Potato Famine, Made Their Way To Saint John And Miramichi River Region In 1840s.
