Archives and Libraries

  • Town Hall Archives
    The Town of Bristol holds documents dating from Bristol’s earliest years; first as a town of Plymouth Colony (1680-1691), later as a Town of Massachusetts (1691-1747) and finally as a colonial Town in Rhode Island (since 1747).
    These archives include early birth, death, and marriage records in addition to the records of the Town Meetings (prior to 1971) and Town Council records that date back to the 17th Century.
    The Town Clerk’s Office is currently involved in a project to process and catalogue a set of miscellaneous documents relating to the action of the Bristol Town Council in its capacity of the head of Town government and Overseer of the Poor from the early 18th Century to about 1900.
    This project, funded through the State Archives and a grant from the Rhode Island Foundation, should be completed and available for limited public use for educational purposes during 2007.
