That's the case with Bridgeport: The earliest map where we found it was on a Rand McNally Map of the Maritime Provinces of Canada (1897).

Footnotes ...

<1>A demonym is the name for a resident of a community which is usually derived from (or is related to) the name of that community. In other words, it's how the residents of Bridgeport refer to themselves. It's important to note that there aren't any rules for taking a community's name and turning it into a demonym. A demonym is informal and while the majority of Bridgeport may use one name, keep in mind that others may use something different.
<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Bridgeport) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Bridgeport. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Bridgeport

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Bridgeport. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 46.2067, Longitude: -59.9886    
<3>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<4>If we have found a location and have questions about the accuracy of our information, we will simply say that the marker is 'in the vicinity'. We are not confident about the location and the position of our marker is only a rough guide. If we have too many doubts about the location, we will not include it in our database.
