Excerpt from The Bridgewater Book

For some years before the Civil War in England there was a large migration of Puritans to New England, who lovingly transplanted many of their Cherished customs and even the names of the towns and villages where they had lived, so that their homes in this wilderness across the ocean might as much as possible remind them of their old homes in their mother land. Somersetshire had long been famous for its adventurous mariners and merchants, and the Puritans were numerous in this town and its neighborhood. It is said that our Taunton in Massachusetts was named in compliment to one of its early settlers, Miss Elizabeth Poole, who was born near the English Taunton; and it is probable that our Bridgewater, being settled soon after Taunton, was named on account of the home affection of some of its first inhabitants. Mitchells and Hoopers and Bryants and Allens were prominent citizens in the English town, these names being found in the lists of mayors and members of Parliament; and they are also familiar names in the history of our New England town.
