St Quentin is located about 80km South West of Campbellton
On the border of the Counties of Restigouche and Victoria

St Quentin was then known as "Anderson"

Church registers for St Quentin hold entries from 1910 on
The parish church was given the name "Tres Saint Sacrement"

The Internation Railway of New Brunswick better known as the I.N.R.
was built between Campbellton and Saint Leonard in 1910
This is mainly what brought the first settlers to the Saint Quentin
Kedgwick area. The other was a rich forest industry
I must say that in 1989 this piece of railroad from Campbellton to Saint Leonard
was closed and the rails were removed. That road is now being used
by the Multiple Trails Project

got the name of St Martin in honor of Father Eudore Martin
