Named after Edward Colston, 1636-1721, a Bristol merchant who endowed a school and almshouses and who is commemorated each November at a service in the Cathedral where schoolchildren are issued with the buns. They are also manufactured as ordinary fare by several bakers in the city (Mason+Brown 2004).
