Basque fishermen used Placentia, Newfoundland, from the beginning of the 16th century. Fish was salted and dried on Placentia's rocky beach, saving the need for fishing stage.
The town name comes from 'Plazenta' meaning pleasantness in basque. By 1655, the French (who controlled most of Atlantic Canada) made Placentia their capital, calling it 'Plaisance'.
Through the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713, Placentia became a British possession. The French had to abandon Placentia. During the 18th century, it was still comparable to St John's in size and importance, with a population between 1500 and 2000. Prince (later, King) William IV spent summer 1786 in Placentia as acting surrogate judge. He described the town as "a more decent settlement than any we have yet seen in Newfoundland". In the mid-1800s, many Channel Island and Irish immigrants came to Placentia.
