I believe that at some time in its history, Bristol was also a County in its own right.
The cover Page of the 1754 Bristol Poll-Book reads in part :-

" Being a List of the
Freeholders and Freemen,
Who voted at the General Election for members
to serve in Parliament
For the
City and County of Bristol................."

If you want to study Bristol in more detail, "Know Your Place- Bristol" has a very good map from the 18th Century interactive with later Ordnance Survey and modern maps.
