Originally known as Buttermilk Creek, was changed to Florenceville in 1855 to honour the Crimean War Nurse Florence Nightingale.

 

The former village of Bristol is located on the Saint John River, in Carleton County, New Brunswick, Canada, approximately 5 kilometers north of Florenceville.

A battle between Micmac and Maliseet  took place in what is known as the present-day Bristol. It was originally called Shiktehawk, a Maliseet word meaning “where he killed him”. After the NB Railway was constructed the name was changed because the railway workers could not pronounce it properly. This was an important area for Native people as it was the start of the cross province route.

 

The Town of Florenceville-Bristol was amalgamated July 1, 2008.
