"BROOMFIELD, a parish in the hundred of Andersfield, in the county of Somerset, 5 miles to the N. of Taunton. Bridgwater is its post town. It is situated under the Quantock Hills, and commands fine views over the country, the river Parret, and the Bristol Channel. The hills of South Wales are also visible. The living is a perpetual curacy* in the diocese of Bath and Wells, worth £78, in the gift of Colonel Hamilton. In the church are several family monuments, and in the churchyard a stone cross. There are charitable endowments for the poor, which produce £22 per annum. Broomfield House is one of the chief residences."
