Conducting a detailed analysis of the previously under-exploited Port Books evidence, this article shows that Bristol's overseas trade experienced a considerable growth in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries, challenging notions that it was in decline. Bristol's trade is shown to have been based on a broad range of exports and to have succeeded through the expansion of its existing markets, rather than the opening up new long distance trades.
