The number of parishes in Gloucestershire, including extra-parochial
places, is about 363; these further include 215 liberties, tithings, and
hamlets, which have separate organisation for poor administrations or
for highways.

The Cotswold or hill district forms a high land running through
Gloucestershire from north-east to south-west. The Forest of Dean
district is another high district to the west of the Severn. Between
these uplands lie the vales of the Severn and Avon.

The produce of Gloucestershire is wheat, barley, oats, rye, beans,
peas, potatoes, turnips, clover, vetches, sainfoin, flax, teasels,
timber and wood produce, apples, pears, cider, perry, ale, beer, grazing
produce, butter, cheese, wool.

Produce

Iron, in the Forest of Dean; lead, in every lime stone rock, but in
small quantities; coal, in the Forest of Dean, Little Dean, and Lydney;
lime-stone, of excellent quality, at Cromhall, Wickwar, &c. from the
rocks called “white lays;” crow-stone, at Churchdown; Bristol diamonds,
at Clifton; free-stone, on the Cotswolds; puff- stone, or tophus, at
Dursley, of which Berkeley Castle was built; gypsum; pyrites. Timber;

numerous fisheries from Oldbury-on-Severn to Tewkesbury; lampreys, eels,
and elvers, in the Severn at and above Gloucester.

Manufacturing

Woollen manufacture is carried on at Wotton-under-Edge, Stroud,
Minchinhampton, Bisley, North Nibley, Ebley, Stonehouse, Eastington,
Dursley, Cam, Painswick, Rodborough, and King’s Stanley. The Stroud
valley produced broadcloths.

Hosiery was manufactured at Tewkesbury and silk at Tewkesbury, Stroud, and Bristol.

In 1834 the Family Topographer reports the manufactures as follows:

There are several paper mills in the County. At Bristol, glass,
pottery, refined sugars, woollens, snuff, &c.; Cambridge and Coaley,
edge-tools, and farmers’ iron-work, brass wire for pins, &c.;
Cirencester, carpets, and curriers’ knives; Forest of Dean, cider and
perry, the latter of which is said to be the basis of some of the wine
sold for champagne in the metropolis; and much iron-work; Frampton
Cotterell, felt hats; Gloucester, curriers’ knives, bells, and pins, the
latter introduced in 1626, by John Tilsby or Tilsley, and the value of
the pins sent weekly to London was at one time estimated at £20,000;
Newnham, verdigrease; Stroud, Painswick, Nailsworth, Chalford, Wootton,
Dursley, Uley, and numerous adjoining villages, broad and narrow fine
cloths, and the waters are peculiarly well adapted to the dying of
scarlet, blue, and black cloth; Vale of Severn, cheese, of which about
12,000 tons are annually exported; Tewkesbury, cotton stockings and
lace. Warmley, near Bristol, brass works.

Minerals

Minerals found in Gloucestershire include coal, iron, lead, tin (at
Lydney), calamine, iron pyrites, barytes, gypsum, limestone, sandstone,
freestone, fuller’s earth, petro-silex, and Bristol diamonds. The Romans
worked ironstone here, as did the early English before the Norman
invasion. In the Middle Ages iron was wrought, and gold was reputed to
be found. There are salt springs at Cheltenham and Gloucester, used for
medicinal purposes, and hot wells at Clifton.

Canals, Rivers and Ports

The two main ports on the Severn estuary were Bristol and Gloucester.

The Lower Avon was navigable to Bath. The Thames rises in Gloucestershire and was navigable from Lechlade.

The main canals include the Stroudwater, the Thames and Severn Canal,
the Hereford and Gloucester and the Gloucester and Berkeley canal,
which was a ship canal 16½ miles long.

Railways

The railways that passed through Gloucestershire we mainly of the
broad gauge system and included the Great Western and the Midland
railways.

Hospitals and Asylums

The County Lunatic Asylum is distant about half a mile from the city
of Gloucester; it stands on rising ground, from which some very
extensive views of the surrounding country are obtained. The centre of
the building is in the form of a semicircle, which, with the wings,
originally extended 250 feet, but additional buildings have since been
erected; the domestic offices are exceedingly good, and there are
commodious apartments for all the resident officers; it was opened July
21, 1823. Dr. Williams, F.L.S., resident physician and superintendent;
Francis Wilton, medical assistant; Miss Bishop, matron; Rev. Herbert
Haines, chaplain; Robert Wilton, solicitor; James Medland, surveyor;
John Jones, auditor.

Law and Legislation

Gloucestershire was within the Oxford circuit and the district of the Bristol court of Bankruptcy.

County assizes were held at Gloucester.

Coroners for the County (1863) — Wm. Gaisford, Esq., Berkeley (for
the Lower division); J. G. Ball, Esq. Stroud (for Stroud division);
Joseph Lovegrove, Esq., Gloucester (for the Upper division); James
Teague, Esq., Hagloe house (for the Forest division).

The County Prison, on the banks of the Severn, was built from a design of the great philanthropist Howard, on the site originally occupied by Gloucester Castle, the ancient donjon or keep of which had been used as a prison previously. It was erected in 1791, and considerably enlarged and improved in 1850, and is now considered as good a model of the kind as any in England. It is used as a penitentiary as well as a prison, and contains both county and city prisoners, the latter being contracted for, the city prison having been taken down.

County Gaol (Gloucester)(1863), Captain Henry Edward Cartwright,
governor; Rev. W. C. L. A. Dudley, B.A., chaplain: Thomas Hickes,
surgeon; Henry Morland Jeens, clerk and storekeeper; Miss Ellen Gillett,
matron.

deputy chief constable, 10 superintendents, 43 sergeants, and 219
constables. The chief station is at Cheltenham. There are 68 other
