Greenwich is a Canadian parish in Kings County, New Brunswick.[2]


Greenwich Parish set off from Kingston Parish in 1795: possibly named for Greenwich, Fairfield Co., Connecticut or for New York City's Greenwich Village.


Greenwich Parish is defined in the Territorial Division Act[3] as being bounded:

Northwest by the County line; southwest by Westfield Parish; southeast, east and northeast by the Saint John River including the islands in the Long Reach.


The entire parish forms the local service district of the parish of Greenwich, established in 1976 to assess for fire protection and first aid and ambulance services. Recreatonal facilities were added to the assessment in 1995, with first aid and ambulance services removed at the same time.
