Bristol Record Society

The Bristol Record Society is devoted to the study and publication of the historic records of the City and County of Bristol. It has published over seventy major volumes which are an essential source for the investigation of Bristol’s history.

All the volumes, together with their introductions, are products of the freely given work of scholars, each of whom is an expert in the chosen topic. The production of each volume is overseen by a managing editor, drawn from the Council of the Bristol Record Society and produced to professional standards.

The Council is  made up of academics, archivists, librarians and other experts involved in the study of the city’s history.
