More on MonctonMoncton is the second largest city in New Brunswick after Saint John. The Greater Moncton area is also the fifth fastest growing among metropolitan areas in Canada, and the fastest growing east of Saskatchewan.
The Moncton area was first settled by French-speaking Acadians in 1733, after they spread inland along the Petitcodiac and Memramcook river valleys. The settlement was later captured by the English and the French-speaking settlers were expelled. Later in 1766, Pennsylvania Dutch settlers arrive to reestablish the community.
The newly reestablished settlement was originally known as "The Bend". It grew into a major shipbuilding center in the 19th century. In 1855 The Bend was incorporated as a town, and named after Lt. Col. Robert Monckton. The clerk misspelled the name, resulting in Moncton.
