Brislington Hall Bristol BS4
1914 Brislington Hall this grand house once stood on the corner of West Town Lane and Bath Road, where the german supermarket is today. For over 150 years the Clayfield-Irelands were the major landowners in Brislington. A survey in 1884 showed that they owned 707 acres, nearly 300 more than the Cooke-Hurles. Their estate was broken up in 1925 but there are still many reminders of the family in the district, from the name of Clayfield Road to the memorials in St. Luke?s Church. It is interesting to speculate whether Brislington would have developed in the same way if any of the 15 children of Squire James Ireland, who died in 1864, had themselves had children. They were all childless. When the last son, Alfred, died in 1923 the estate passed to a distant relation in Scotland. He had so little interest in the place that the land was sold and Crittall?s Factory was built in 1927 on the site of the family home, Brislington Hall. This was the beginning of rapid ?development?. In many ways the family were typical of the many rich Bristol merchants who invested their money in a house and estate in the clean country air of the Somerset village of Brislington. The family came originally from Beaminster in Dorset where they were small farmers. It was James Ireland who made a fortune in Bristol as a sugar and wine merchant and bought land in Brislington in the 1770?s. He was a remarkably energetic man, a great success in business, High Sheriff of Somerset in 1782, husband of Frances Godde, one of the wealthiest heiresses of the day and a friend of John Wesley. Wesley often stayed in Brislington Hall during his tours of the West Country and described ]ames as 'so pious and friendly a person. His memorial in St. Luke?s Church gives some indication of the impression he made on his contemporaries: 'He was a man of very considerable qualifications and endowments, extensively known and universally beloved in his neighbourhood .... In domestic life he was affable, condescending and affectionate, gentle in his manners, a lover of peace, the friend of decorum and the guardian of order'. James left two daughters and the elder married Edward Clayfield, also a Bristol merchant.Their elder son, Edward, inherited an estate in Devon at Dowrich and it was the younger son James who assumed the name Clayfield-Ireland by royal licence in 1827. This was to comply with instructions in his maternal grandfather's will that he could not inherit the estate unless he did so. He married in 1832 Letitia Priaulx, an heiress from Guernsey. There were seven sons and eight daughters of the marriage but no grandchilden. Miss Pearce Miss Pearce came to live in Brislington in 1896. Her father was coachman to the Clayfield-Irelands and she has many memories of them: 'I was only a year and a week old when we came first to Brislington. My father used to drive the carriage wherever they wanted and he looked after the horses. He didn’t train for the job but the old coachman retired and he took over. The Clayfield-Irelands had about five servants and then of course all the outside men gardeners and boys. I remember from about the age of five going out for drives with Miss Constance she was a cripple because the nurse dropped her when she was a child. I used to go out with her around the garden and stay with her while she picked off all the dead roses and then we’d go and sit on a seat overlooking Flowers Hill. We lived in the entrance lodge. My father didn’t earn very much but my mother helped with the butter making and I used to go up every night to skim the large pans and I really enjoyed myself. The Clayfield-Irelands were popular in the village but they were a strange family. Miss Mary was at Dr. Fox’s. I always understood she had ‘flu badly and after that she was sent to Dr. Fox’s and stayed there. Miss Constance went into the Convent at one time and I understand she was bought out of there. She was a great lady - she used to wear a different flower in her bonnet for every season and put a white cover over her umbrella for the summer time. Miss Annette lived at Weston and I went there once for a week and we got on very well.. I remember Miss Mary once ran away from Dr. Fox’s and made her way to Weston to stay with Miss Annette and there was a big hunt on for her. Miss Mary was quite all right to talk to but she wasn’t responsible for her actions and she was always trying to escape. There used to be lots of arguments between the sisters and Miss Alice who was a Plymouth Brethren. She used to walk to their meeting place in Totterdown. Miss Eleanor spent a lot of time travelling abroad - it was always great excitement among the servants because Miss Eleanor was coming home and then she’d be off again. She was very jolly and I liked her very much. I knew Miss Constance the most - my sister and I used to help her walk around the estate. People used to take their caps off to the family when they went by. I was told to curtsy
