Bathurst is the County seat for Gloucester County, New Brunswick, and is at the estuary of the Nepisiguit River.HistoryBathurst had been the location of the annual Mi'kmaq summer coastal community of Nepisiguit prior to European settlement. Early settlers from France came to the area in the 17th century in what became part of the colony of Acadia. Following the fall of this part of Acadia to British control in the Seven Years' War, the region saw the arrival of numerous English and Scottish settlers, particularly during the latter 18th century through to the 20th century, such as Hugh Munro, around 1800 founder of “the first and most ancient establishment” in the timber trade of Nepisiguit Bay. In 1807 Munro was appointed a justice of the peace and judge of the Inferior Court of Common Pleas for Northumberland County, and in 1828 was elected to sit in the 9th New Brunswick Legislature when the county of Gloucester was given its first representative.The community, which up to that point had been named St. Peters, was renamed by the Governor, Sir Howard Douglas (1823–1831), in honor of Henry Bathurst, 3rd Earl Bathurst (1762–1834), Secretary of State for the Colonies of the British government.
