Bristol Books

Bristol Bibliography (1)

I'm hoping to make this one of the most complete bibliographies of books about Bristol available. So far, I own copies of around one third of these books and pamphlets. Unfortunately, some of these books were privately published in limited numbers and others are now extremely rare, so there is now very little chance of collecting them all.

Barton Hill is the name given to the sloping ground that leads down to the marsh at the southern end of Barton Regis. The area was first mentioned in the Domesday Book when it was inhabited by only a few dozen people. In the middle ages several large houses were built there for wealthy Bristol merchants and Barton Hill remained a rural retreat until the early 1800s when its peacefulness was disturbed by the sound of navies digging the feeder canal.  This book contains over 200 photographs.

The documents collected here illuminate the conduct of British trade and investments in the Caribbean when slavery was at its height and Jamaica was the wealthiest territory in Britain's Atlantic empire. Pertaining to the commercial and plantation interests of two Bristol families connected through marriage and business, the documents include correspondence, wills and inventories, partnership agreements, insurance policies and property deeds.
The introduction addresses issues of the slave trade and sugar cultivation, capital accumulation, the ways in which a West India fortune was created, the risk environment of the Caribbean, and social, economic and demographic conditions in eighteenth-century Bristol and Jamaica.
A valuable source for historians of the Georgian period, this volume shows that British merchants connected with the West Indies were centrally concerned with improvement, independence, and social mobility.
Title: Brislington
Author: Axford, Mary & Rowe, Jonathon & Chard, Judith
Published: 1995
Publisher: Tempus Publishing
ISBN: 0752403516
This fascinating collection of over 200 photographs illustrates some of the enormous changes Brislington and its people have seen over the last 130 years. The village was once said to be the prettiest in Somerset; with sixteen rural farms it was for many centuries a mainly rural area which also contained many fine houses built by the local gentry and by Bristol merchants. Using many unpublished photographs mainly from the collection built up by the Brislington Conservation and Amenity Society over the last eleven years, this book is the story, in pictures and in words, of houses great and small, village people, church and chapel, schooldays, working life, Brislington at war and at leisure. It is both an intriguing and stimulating history which will bring much enjoyment to the reader. This book appears to have been reprinted in 2004.

This book details dozens of haunted places in Brislington (which traditionally includes the neighbourhoods of St Anne's and Broomhill as well as areas such as Arno's Vale, and Flowers Hill), as well as describing several UFO sightings and a range of other incidents of paranormal phenomena.

Title: Bristol: A People's History
Author: Aughton, Peter
Published: 2000
Publisher: Carnegie
ISBN: 1859360971
The first full history of Bristol for two generations, this beautiful book tells the story of one of the most important maritime cities in the UK. Certain to appeal to Bristolians the world over. It was a thousand years ago that a simple wooden bridge provided a crossing over the Avon, at a place known as the `Bridge Place'. Only 200 years later Bristol had become the largest and most prosperous town in the West of England, and it subsequently grew to become the second city in the kingdom. Anybody who has ever tried to understand Bristol's long and turbulent history will know that the number of books on the shelf is so bewildering, and the books so specialised, that there is simply no place for the beginner to start! Peter Aughton's book solves this problem. Many excellent and detailed specialised studies have been published in the last fifty years but this is the first full history of Bristol to appear in two generations. The influence and history of Bristol extend well beyond her neighbourhood. The city played a major part in the discovery and colonisation of America; she has been a great centre of industry; as well as being one of the world's leading mercantile ports. She still retains a strong nautical atmosphere and the old-world charm of an ancient English city. The range of the book is very wide, but the reader will still find much which is new in the text. Most of Bristol's previous historians, for instance, have shied away from analysing the true impact of the slave trade, but here it is given a chapter in its correct context as a critical part of eighteenth-century Bristol. The author brings the railway, the steamship and the development of the docks into the narrative as an essential part of Bristol's Victorian development. Reprinted in 2003.

The Bristol and Gloucestershire Archaeological Society was founded in 1876 and has published a Journal, the Transactions, annually ever since. Usually 250-300 pages in length, its main contents are reports of archaeological excavations and articles of historical research. Taking one year with another, a balance is maintained between Bristol and Gloucestershire and between archaeology and other topics. Articles are peer-reviewed before publication. In addition the "Archaeological Review" is a highly-regarded feature. It presents brief summaries of research and fieldwork during the year. It is the only comprehensive survey of current archaeological activity in Bristol and Gloucestershire. The Society has decided to make selected publications available electronically and freely downloadable from the Internet. However, they will normally have been available exclusively to Members or Subscribers in paper form for several years before they are made available free of charge on the Internet - See TBGAS Online

Title: Bristol and the Atlantic Trade in the Eighteenth Century
Author: Morgan, Kenneth
Published: 2004
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 0521893674 or 978-0521893671
This book offers the first detailed examination for many years of the transatlantic trade and shipping of Bristol during the eighteenth century. It compares the performance of Bristol as a port during this period with the growth of other out ports, especially Liverpool and Glasgow. Dr Morgan's analysis shows that the absolute growth of Bristol's Atlantic trade between 1700 and 1800 was concomitant with the relative decline of Bristol as a port; the main reasons for this decline were the lack of improvement to port facilities, increasing specialisation among the Bristol merchant community, the impact of war on trade, and the superior business acumen in the tobacco and slave trades manifested by Glasgow and Liverpool merchants respectively. Bristol and the Atlantic Trade is based on a great variety of primary sources in the British Isles, the USA, the West Indies, Australia and continental Europe.

Photos of the ships, docks, and harbours in the Bristol Channel region during the busy years following WWII. The area is vastly different now and this nostalgic album evokes the feeling of past eras.  The Bristol Channel of the twenty-first century is so different from what it used to be. Nowadays it is rare to see a ship! In the ports the local coal hoists and most of the cranes have gone; the warehouses and transit sheds stand derelict or have been demolished; docks have been filled in and where commerce once flourished, housing estates now stand. The images of a snap-happy photographer are all that remain to remind us of the decline of this once great waterway. They have provided us with a memorable journey through the Bristol Channel.

This study brings together numerous murderous tales that shocked not only the city but also made national headlines. Contained within the pages of this book are the stories behind some of the most heinous crimes ever committed in Bristol. They include the murder and suicide of a brother and sister in 1842; the tragic death of 10-year-old Mabel Price in 1897; the killing of Ada James in a fit of jealous rage by her fiancé Ted Palmer in 1913; and the suspicious death of sexual deviant Cecil Cornock, which led to his wife Ann being charged with his murder before her subsequent acquittal in 1946. Nicola Sly's carefully researched, well-illustrated, and enthralling text will appeal to anyone interested in the shady side of Bristol's history, and should give much food for thought.

The volume is "designed as a practical guide for exploring the buildings of central Bristol and its inner suburbs". After an introduction to the city's geographic aspects and historical background there are sections devoted to: major buildings such as the Cathedral, St Mary Redcliffe, or the Clifton Suspension Bridge; the fifteen city centre churches; the city centre itself--a "dense and disparate assemblage" due in part to German bombing; the inner city, with five recommended walks; outer areas, with eight walks through Clifton, the University area and Kingsdown among others; and excursions further afield to places such as Ashton Court or Tyntes-field. The more relaxed approach to volumes such as this does not undermine the scholarship and wealth of information contained between the covers.

Author: Coldham, Peter Wilson
Published: 1988
Publisher: Genealogical Publishing
ISBN: 0806312238 or 9780806312231

In 1654 the Bristol City Council passed an ordinance requiring that a register of servants destined for the colonies be kept, the purpose being to prevent the practice of dumping innocent youths into servitude. The registers, covering the period 1654 to 1686, are the largest body of indenture records known, and they also are a unique record of English emigration to the American colonies. Of the total of 10,000 servants in these registers, almost all came from the West Country, the West Midlands, or from Wales.

Most entries give the name of the servant, his place of origin (until 1661), length of service, destination (usually Virginia, Maryland, or the West Indies), name of master, and, after 1670, the name of the ship. Four indexes have been included, one each for servants, masters, places of origin, and ships.

Bristol Rovers may never have played in the top flight of the game but, down the decades, few clubs have had more colourful characters. In this fascinating book Ivan Ponting and Richard Jones ? both lifelong followers of Bristol soccer ? profile the most memorable of the post-war Pirates. They are all here, from the vintage Eastville favourites of the 1940s and 1950s, through the Watney Cup heroes of the early 1970s, to the idols of Gerry Francis?s blue-and-white army, and beyond: Geoff Bradford and Alfie ?the Baron? Biggs, Harold Jarman and Alan Warboys, Gary Penrice and Ian Holloway, Marcus Stewart and Nathan Ellington ? the list is mouth-watering. Bristol Rovers Greats is an affectionate and often revealing tribute to some of the most revered names in West Country sport. Revised edition printed in 2005.

Title: Brunel's Bristol

ISBN: 1904537359
The remarkable Isambard Kingdom Brunel made a greater contribution to the landscape of the Bristol area than any other single individual before or since. Few would argue with Angus Buchanan?s judgement: a splendid bridge over the Avon Gorge, a railway network radiating out from Bristol, with Brunel?s original Temple Meads station still intact (if put to new uses), the Floating Harbour surviving largely because of the improvements which he introduced, and the S.S. Great Britain now handsomely restored in the dry dock from which she was launched in 1843. This book concentrates on Brunel?s associations with the city of Bristol and tells of the great engineer?s triumphs, exasperations and disappointments in the city which, as a young man, he adopted as his own and which he continued to regard with affection for the rest of his life.

This book follows the Flora of the Bristol Region, and presents the results of the Avon Butterfly Project's survey of the butterflies to be found in the region over the last decade. Furthermore it reviews all the known historic records of butterflies in a comprehensive summary. It is illustrated throughout with superb colour photographs of the adult butterflies, certain life-stages and habitats and distribution maps as well as line drawings of those species no longer found in the region. The text highlights the worrying decline in many species at the end of the 20th century. The loss of fritillary butterflies, blue butterflies and their respective habitats has been dramatic, their ecology and conservation is discussed. Despite the parlous state of some species, Butterflies of the Bristol Region guides the butterfly watcher to sites where it is possible to find the approximately 40 different species that occur. This includes sites within, and close to, the major cities of Bristol and Bath.

Title: Community and Clergy (Bristol and the Reformation: C.1530-C.1570 )
Author: Skeeters, Martha C.
Published: 1993
Publisher: Clarendon Press
ISBN: 0198201818
This is a study of Bristol during the sixteenth century, when it was the third largest city in England and an important provincial capital. The local focus of the book belies the breadth and innovation it brings to the study of the English clergy, the Reformation, and the early modern city. Skeeters examines the clergy of Bristol in its entirety--monks, friars, and the parish clergy--and integrates it into the urban context. She demonstrates that by the early sixteenth century these various sorts of clergy had become co-operative rather than competitive, and formed a community which was a fundamental part of the city's collective identity. Skeeters explores the impact of the Reformation on the clerics of Bristol and its lay citizens in an original and scholarly account which has much to offer both ecclesiastical and urban historians.
