This article needs a history section. The name "Northumberland" comes from Northumberland in England, formerly the Kingdom of Northumbria. Many of the early settlers of Northumberland county in New Brunswick immigrated from this part of England/Scotland, landing at Beaubears Island, located in what is now Miramichi City. Coincidentally, many of the English speaking people to settle this region of are actually of French heritage, since the Kingdom of Northumbria was conquered by the Normans.
