Bristol Township is named after the Bristol family. Although pioneer miller John Schneider was really the first settler in the township, the Bristols were better known. Lyman Bristol donated the site of the Village of Bristol, now the north side of the City of Yorkville. Today's village of Bristol was first known as Bristol Station, and was a stop on the railroad that passed Yorkville and the old village of Bristol to the north. Bristol is the county's smallest township, losing substantial area to both Kendall and Oswego townships because of the meander of the Fox River. The township was also known for its many swamps.
