"BRISLINGTON, a parish in the hundred of Keynsham, in the county of Somerset, 3 miles to the S.E. of Bristol. It is situated on the border of Gloucestershire, on the south bank of the river Avon, and is intersected by the Great Western railway. No remains exist of an ancient chapel dedicated to St. Anne, which was founded here at an early period. The living is a perpetual curacy in the diocese of Bath and Wells, of the value of £170, in the patronage of E. W. L. Popham, Esq. The church is dedicated to St. Luke. The charitable endowments of the parish are worth about £12 a year. There are several seats of the gentry in the neighbourhood. Brislington House is a lunatic asylum, originally founded and conducted by Dr. Fox on an admirable system."
