Biographical or historical data
Bristol Parish was created in 1643. Authorities differ as to the exact derivation of the parish and the extent of the area embraced when it was created. However, all agree that when Prince George was formed from Charles City County in 1703, the parish included a large part of Prince George's vast area, which extended indefinitely downward to the south and west covering the whole valley of the Appomattox River. Through the years a number of counties and parishes were derived from this area. With the creation of Bath Parish (Dinwiddie County) in 1742, the present bounds of Bristol Parish were established. The famous Blandford Church is in Bristol Parish. For more information see A HISTORY OF BRISTOL PARISH, VIRGINIA, by Philip Slaughter, 1879.
