The county was formed in 1746 by the transfer of part of
Bristol County, Massachusetts, to the state of Rhode Island, and was the subject of a long-running border dispute.  It is located on a peninsula bordered by Massachusetts on the northeast, Narragansett Bay on the southwest, and Mount Hope Bay on the southeast. The county was named after Bristol, England and is one of the smallest counties in the United States.
