Category: Hatters of Bristol and South Gloucestershire

Categories: Hatmaking Occupations | England, Hatters


This Category is for the people who made up the large communities of Felt-Hatters in the Bristol and South Gloucestershire areas of England. This includes Bristol itself and the outlying districts of Bitton, Mangotsfield, Oldland Common and Warmley to the East, as well as Frampton Cotterell and Winterbourne to the North of the City. There are also direct connections to some of the Hat making areas of London such as Bermondsey, St Saviours and Southwark ( in Surrey ) .
Chris Heal, who has made extensive study of the subject, has recorded 6,000 names associated with this region, making this a potentially large and useful category for genealogical research.
