Petit-Rocher is a Canadian village in Gloucester County, New Brunswick. Located on
Nepisiguit Bay 20 km northwest of Bathurst, Petit-Rocher's residents are 92% Francophone.
The village was founded in 1797 by Acadian settlers. The name literally means 'little rock', and
is pronounced by most anglophones in the region as Petty Roche. The name of the village is
reputed to derive from the fact that the village's founders disembarked on a small rock. The
village was named Little Roche from 1850 to 1854, then Madisco until 1870, and then Petit
Rocher. The hyphenated form Petit- Rocher was adopted in 2009. Some old maps have the name
Petite Roche (1812) and Sainte Roque or Little Russia (1827).
