"BEDMINSTER, a parish in the hundred of Hadcliffe with Bedminster, in the county of Somerset, a suburb of Bristol, 1 mile to the S. of the city. It is situated on the south bank of the river Avon, and contains the tythings of Bishport, or Bishopworth, and Knowle. The Avon here flows through the new cut which is crossed by an iron bridge, its natural channel forming now the floating docks of the city. The trade and manufactures of Bedminster are considerable, including collieries, timber-yards, tanyards, rope-walks, &c. It is a polling-place for the borough of Bristol. A large hospital is established." From The National Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland (1868) Transcribed by Colin Hinson © 2003
