Beresford

5
Beresford is a Canadian town in Gloucester County, New Brunswick.It is situated on the shore of Chaleur Bay immediately north of the city of Bathurst. 81% of the town's residents are francophone.HistoryIn March 1813, the municipal council of Northumberland decided to regroup the territories north of Miramichi into two districts: one being from Neguac to Pokemouche, the other from Caraquet and including the whole north-east region of New Brunswick. In 1814, this re-organisation continued and the territory was subdivided into parishes. Some examples of those were Alnwick (Neguac and Tabusintac), Saumarez (from Tracadie to Caraquet), and Beresford (from Nepisiguit to Restigouche).Names were then given to these new civil parishes honouring naval and military men (Nelson, Wellington, and Carleton, for Thomas Carleton). Beresford was named for the British general William Beresford, 1st Viscount Beresford, who commanded the Portuguese troops that were part of Wellington's army in the Peninsular War from 1808 to 1814.
