  • Notes 


    • According to the will of his father, Jeremiah was given lands at Mt.
      Hope, and it is supposed he moved there. Mt. Hope is regarded as a
      corruption or rather the English of the Indian Montaup, which word was
      used by the aborigines to designate the hill in the town of Bristol,
      Bristol County, Rhode Island. The epithet Mount Hope or Montaup has
      from time immemorial been applied to the historic hill in Bristol.
      This town (Bristol including the hill) was transferred, with four
      other towns, from Massachusetts to Rhode Island, February 27, 1746-7.
      There is now a Mt. Hope swamp where Philip was killed August 12, 1676,
      O.S.; also, Mt. Hope bay. He resided in Scituate and Mt. Hope.
