A town on the west side of Conception Bay, 116 km (72 mi) by road from St. John's. According to E.R. Seary (1971) the name of the community probably comes from either the Spanish word carbonera, which, among other things, means a female who makes or sells charcoal, or from one of a number of French words, the most likely of which being; Charbonnier or Carbonnier, two family names or La Carbonnière, a place name.
