Did you know that back in the Dark Ages, Bridgwater was simply known as 'Bryj' which is Anglo-Saxon for 'The Quayside' ?
In the Middle Ages, in 1066, after William the Conqueror invaded England, he gifted various manors and land to his supporters. 'Bryj' was given to Walter, from Douai in France. The quayside on the River Parrett now belonged to him to be known as Walter's Quayside, Bryj of Walter and eventually Bridgwater
Even in the 19th. century, milestone makers misspelt the name to Bridgewater and also in the 1990's, Somerset County Council made a similar error!
