Harding of Bristol (born circa 1048, died circa 1125) was sheriff reeve of Bristol, with responsibility for managing a manorial estate and perhaps similar duties to those of a magistrate.[1][2] He was the son of Eadnoth the Constable, an Anglo-Saxon thane who served as steward to Edward the Confessor and Harold II.[3] He was the father of Robert Fitzharding who became lord of Berkeley, Gloucestershire.[1]

His wife Livida supposedly died at the manor of Whetonhurst, Blacklow Hundred, Gloucestershire, England in 1101.
