American Consulate

In 1792 the first overseas Consulate for the United States of America was established in this house. There were very strong trade links between Bristol and the USA, and a lot of slave grown and harvested tobacco came into the city. During the period 1698-1807 around 2,100 slaving related missions sailed out of Bristol, with most involving trade in the American colonies/ the USA.
