Transcript of the description for Littlebredy from Hunt & Co.'s Directory of Dorsetshire, Hampshire, & Wiltshire 1851

BREDY-LITTLE a village 6¾ miles W.S.W. from Dorchester, situate near the high road from that town to Bridport. Robert Williams, Esq. of Bridehead house, is the sole proprietor of this place; this gentleman, at his own cost, has lately constructed an entire new church; the sacred edifice is built of Caen stone which it is said cost much less than Portland, although the quarries of the latter are so near at hand. The parochial chapelry of Little-Bredy with the hamlet of Kingston-Russell comprises 1100 acres, and about 200 inhabitants.
