[from Smith's Directory, 1883]


BRIDE, in the sheading of Ayre, occupies the most northern portion of the island. It is bounded on the east, north, and west by the sea, and on the south by Andreas and Lezayre. Its length from north to south in about 3½ miles, and from east to west two miles. The soil is good, the surface level, with a few gentle elevations. The church (St. Bridget's, after whom the parish is named) is a small ancient structure of red sand stone, capable of accommodating 250 hearers. The living is a rectory in the gift of the Crown, and held by the Rev. E. W. Kissack. There are also places of worship for Wesleyans and Primitive Methodists.
