Rothesay is located near the southern shoreline of New Brunswick, just minutes from Saint John. As well, Rothesay belongs to Kings County. The first known residents of the land at Rothesay were the Maliseet and the Mi'kmaq. After the construction of the European and North American Railway in 1853, shipbuilding would become a major industry here. Rothesay, the community name, came from an observation by the Prince of Wales, who visited the land in 1860. He, King Edward VII, remarked that the land reminded him of Rothesay, Scotland and thus, the name was formed in honour of him. Rothesay is 17.4 km (10.8 mi.) northeast of Saint John.
