Ref: IE5079
ISBN: 1-84630-268-4

First published in 1830 and republished here as a fully-searchable DOWNLOAD is Pigot & Co.'s National Commercial Directory. Renowned as one of the earliest and most complete directories and gazetteers, this publication contains the entries for the cities, towns, and principal villages in Somersetshire. This publication contains 138 printed pages, of which 74 are a directory of Somersetshire.

Advertised as a Commercial Directory, Pigot's National Commercial Directory provides the names, addresses and occupations of the merchants, bankers, professional gentlemen, manufacturers and traders for the principal towns, cities and villages on which it treats. The National Commercial Directory also acts as a gazetteer and topographical dictionary and for may readers this is the most useful aspect of a National Commercial Directory such as Pigot's.

Starting with a brief historical and topographical sketch of the county, Pigot's Directory then presents in alphabetical order the county Directory, which forms the vast bulk of this publication. Following the topographical description the National Commercial Directory provides details of Post Office and the names of nobility, gentry and clergy. This is followed of the trades section, consisting of Academies and schools, attorneys, bakers, blacksmiths, boot and shoemakers, bricklayers, butchers, coopers, corn dealers, dress makers and a dozen or more trades and professions. This is the minimum amount of detail one can expect in the National Commercial Directory while administrative capitals can expect at least a dozen pages.

Printed and published in Bristol in 1837 by John Wansborough, The Bristol Poll Book's full and descriptive title reads as follows: "The Bristol Poll Book, being a list of the Householders, Freeholders, and Freemen, who voted in the General Election, for Members to Serve in Parliament, for the City and County of Bristol, which took place, July 24th 1837. Before Thomas Kington, Esq. Sheriff."

The candidates that stood for election for the City and County of Bristol on July 24th 1837 were Philip William Skinner Miles, Esq., for the Conservative Party, William Fripp, Esq., also for the Conservative Party and the Honourable Francis Henry FitzHardinge Berkeley, described as a 'Radical' Liberal candidate and by the accounts recalled in the introduction of the Bristol Poll Book the election as well as the final result was a particularly acrimonious affair. The introduction details in some twenty pages the speeches of the candidates on the 22nd July, the day on which nominations were opened, as well as the Sheriff's Returns on 25th July. This announced that Mr. Miles was duly elected with 3,838 votes and the Hon. Francis Berkeley with 3,212 was returned as the second Member of Parliament over Mr. Fripp who received 3,156 votes. However, there were calls for a recount of the Hon. Francis Berkeley's votes as it was revealed that Berkeley's officials had proffered 400 gifts of £6 to the poor Freemen of Bristol in return for their votes. However, the result was not overturned and Berkeley, the illegitimate son of the 5th Earl, sat continuously as a Member of Parliament for Bristol from this election until his death in 1870.

As for the Poll Book itself, this contains the names, addresses - business and private - of more than 5,000 men who cast their votes on 24th July 1837. The Poll Book is arranged firstly by parish and within each parochial return the names of the voters together with the candidates for whom they voted is recorded. The usefulness of Poll Books in general is not to be underestimated and far exceeds their socio-political interest. As an item of record, the 1837 Poll Book contains many more names of merchants, traders and gentlemen resident in Bristol than any contemporary trades or street directory and in most cases contains just as much information on the voters' business activity and place of residence as a trades directory.

Republished here in fully-searchable digital format, the Bristol Poll Book for 1837 containing the names, addresses and business of more than 10,000 Bristonians must appeal to anyone with a family or historical interest in Bristol and the surrounding area.

Kelly's Directory of the City of Bristol and its Neighbourhood, 1894 Kelly's Directory of the City of Bristol and its Neighbourhood, 1894

Ref: IE5031
ISBN: 1-84630-184-X

Republished here in fully-searchable digital format is the 1894 edition of Kelly's Directory of the City of Bristol & its Neighbourhood. Containing nearly 480 printed pages the City and Neighbourhood Directory for Bristol is a principally a street directory for the City of Bristol, but as with all of Kelly's Directories also serves as a gazetteer for the city and county.

Kelly's Directory of the City of Bristol and its Neighbourhood is introduced by a topographical and statistical description of the city and its principal suburbs of Bedminster and Clifton. This provides a record of the principal events in the City's history, descriptions of the landmark municipal, ecclesiastical and private buildings, parishes, civic institutions and statistical data, predominantly drawn from the 1881 and 1891 Statistical Abstracts of the Population Censuses. There follows the Street Directory for the City of Bristol. Alphabetically arranged this provides the name and street number of the principal resident of all of the private dwellings in the city and in many instances the occupation of the chief resident is also given. The Street Directory is followed by an alphabetical directory for the suburbs and neighbourhood of the city recording thorough topographical and statistical descriptions of all of the religious, educational, civil and municipal institutions contained in each. In most instances the directory also provides a brief historical account of the village or town under consideration, which often includes important events and personages connected with the locality. Beginning with the parish of Abbot's Leigh and ending with the parish of Westbury-on-Trym, the suburban section of the 1894 Directory of Bristol provides a relatively detailed account of the history, buildings of note and religious and civic institutions as well as the principal private residents and commercial interests situated in the villages and parishes not in the city proper.

More than half of the Bristol Directory is taken-up by the 'Court Directory', an alphabetical listing of all of the principal private residents of Bristol and its suburbs and the 'Trades Directory', an alphabetical listing by trade of all of the businesses, including doctors and lawyers and the like, present in the city and its suburbs. The 1894 edition of Kelly's Directory of Bristol and its Neighbourhood is concluded by 64 pages of advertisements, many full and half page accompanied by sketches, drawings and photographs.

For anyone with even the slightest interest in the residents, topography of descriptions of the City of Bristol and its neighbourhood this fully-searchable 1894 edition of Kelly's Directory of Bristol and its Neighbourhood is heartily recommended.

Bristol 1906 Kelly's Directory Bristol 1906 Kelly's Directory

Ref: 0167s
ISBN:

Covers the whole of Bristol and surrounding parts of Gloucestershire & Somerset with an excellent street by street directory which lists the names and addresses of tradespeople and private residents. With each street's name is the name of the parish which it was in.

After the street directory is an alphabetical list of peoples' names and addresses in the Bristol and suburban area. There is no list of the suburbs covered but it would be safe to assume that most, if not all, of the places mentioned in the description of the 1894 directory are included here too.

A county directory with general information and history of Somerset, followed by descriptions and facilities of every town and village, its churches, chapels, schools, etc., and lists of private residents and commercial businesses. For the major towns there is a house by house, street by street listing of households. 2. A private residents directory (in alphabetical order). 3. A county-wide classified trades and professional directory. (Note: by this period, places such as Bedminster are included in the Bristol Directories).
