Birth

Bedminster was listed in the Domesday Book as a royal manor and later became part of the lands of the lords of Berkeley. Until the boundary changes of the 1890s it was not actually within the area of Bristol but a part of Somerset.

Minster in the name refers to a church and the old parish church of St John's was established many centuries ago, rebuilt several times and eventually fell casualty to the blitz of 1941. The ruins were demolished over twenty years later. The site was more or less levelled and now forms an enclosed, mainly grassed space. Only the fact of the approach by Church Road and the base of the old preaching cross remain to show its origins.

Although there is frequent mention in the 19th century newspapers of cows and sheep being stolen from farms at Bedminster, the discovery of coal and the development of the South Liberty Coal Pit led to its industrialisation. There were brickyards, smelting works, tanneries, glassworks and potteries among many other industries.
