Rhode Island The Home Lots of the Early Settlers of the Providence Plantations with Notes and Plats. Charles Wyman Hopkins

Rhode Island The Home Lots of the Early Settlers of the Providence Plantations with Notes and Plats. Charles Wyman Hopkins

Shortly after the settlement of Providence, Rhode Island in 1636, the land within the present-day streets of Olney, Hope, Wickenden, and Main was known to have been the site of shares or home lots of five acres each of Roger Williams and the other original settlers of the town. The Home Lotts recapitulates the settlement of Providence by Roger Williams and his followers, complete with transcriptions of the deed signed by Williams and Benedict Arnold and the Sachems of the Narragansetts, and diagrams and related documents showing the division of the land into home lots. The balance of the volume consists of short biographical and genealogical essays of the lot owners, virtually all of them containing references to the settlers' origins in England.
