Doaktown is situated in Northumberland County on Highway 8 between Blissfield and Storeytown. The first European people in this area were French. They fled up the Miramichi River to escape exile by the British who had gained supremacy during the latter part of the 17th century. They formed an encampment and many implements and old French coins were found here around the beginning of the twentieth century. However the French people left when peace was restored between the French and the British. The first Europeans to actually settle in Doaktown were a certain Mr. Davis and his sister.
