      BROCKLEY.
      THIS is ſmall pariſh in the ſecond ſubdiviſion of the hundred, nine miles ſouth
      weſt from Briſtol, and three north from Wrington, in the turnpike-road from
      Briſtol to Yatton and Congerſbury. The ſituation is very pleaſant, and conſtſts of
      great variety of ſurface; and from ſome parts the proſpects are very beautiful.
      About quarter of mile eaſtward of the church is very fine romantick glen,
      called Brockley-German', about half mile in length, and very narrow; each ſide being
      ſteep ſlope formed of rugged rocks mixed with timber-trees, yews, foreſt and other
      ſhrubs, that grow out of the crcvices of the ſtone. In the deepeſt part the trees are
      very lofty, and the rocks almoſt inacceſſible to the height of near three hundred feet,
      projecting in many places through, and towering above the tops of the branches, with
      -a rude and aſtoniſhing grandeur. The ſteep aſcent and rugged ſurface of the rocks
      on each ſide are rendered very romantick by the fantaſtically twiſted forms of the
      roots of many trees and ſlirubs which ſpring from the crevices, and ſpread their branches
      in the moſt pictureſque manner. Along the bottom is fine grave] walk, and nearly in
      the center of the Combe is neat cottage, where many reſort to drink tea in the ſummer
      ſeaſon. If this ſpot had the advantage of water, it would be ſecond Matlock on
      ſmaller ſcale, but not leſs romantick and beautiful.

      ...

      the manor of Brockley, five meſiiiages, one cottage, one windmill, one dove-houſe,
      five gardens, twenty-three acres of arable, fifteen of meadow, eighty-eight acres of
      wood, and tenpence rent in Brockley, together with the advowſon of the church.

      by knight's ſervice. Nicholas Harvey, his ſon and heir, was then of' the age oſ eleven
