HOPE CHRONOLOGIES Chester County Pennsylvania - 1685-1791

This is an attempt to set the record of the Hope surnamed persons in Chester County Pennsylvania out in a logical order so as to facilitate the research of these persons.

Transcribed by Richard Hope 18 July 2002 from several reference documents. This document is as accurate as I can make it, however it is not perfect, in many cases I am relying on work done by previous persons who are unknown to me and I do not know how accurate their work was. Also, it is possible that I have not transcribed everything perfectly.
