Bristol Phoenix (Newspaper) - August 10, 1937, Bristol, Rhode IslandMount lands grated by in plan Mouth tor yearly rental of seven Beaver a is a lands were then said for three Hundred pounds continued from last a Eek from the Bristol Phoenix of May 14, 1887. Our Story carries us to the privy Council chamber where the Dull routine of business was at this time so often lighted up by the wit of Shaftesbury. Among those whose occupation it was to amuse the King was a dra a Matic poet named John crowne. He is said to have been first brought to the notice of the Queen through the dislike which Rochester cherished for Dryden and to have gained the favor of the Good natured Monarch by a mask which he had performed before the court. Reckoning on this favor crowne came Forward with a petition for the mount Hope lands. His father who had purchased an estate in Nova Scotia had been impoverished by the cession of that province to the French and upon this circumstance the poet based his claim to restitution. The matter was brought before the privy Council who directed that before any action should be taken inquiries should be made respecting the title to the territory. Plymouth claimed the lands As lying within her Patent and in this View the agents of Massachusetts concurred. The two Rhode Island agents on the other hand maintained that the tract up to the recent War had belonged to Sachem Philip and that no corporation m new England had any title to it. Although the Plymouth authorities had sought to gain the favor of the King by sending to him the greater part of the ornaments and treasures of Philip the privy Council adopted the i Bod pc. Ift Sygd. Urc tired that he Lanas of Grant to Plymouth res Eryin Only to the a Crown by Way of quit rent seven Beaver skins to be paid yearly to Windsor Castle.

Who we naturally ask were the Junen to who Bristol owes its origin f the four original proprietors with one exception were actual settlers and become earnestly identified with the interests of the town. Or. Oliver sold his share to Nathan Hayman another leading merchant of Boston who soon after died. The names of the remaining three Are written in enduring characters on our Early annals. Of Stephen Burton less is known than of the others but he is said to have been bred at Oxford and As recording officer of the county he filled a responsible position until his death in 1692. John Walley whose name stands first on the grand deed was the son of an English clergy Roan and held High rank in the Massachusetts Colony. Near the close of his life a returned to Boston where he died in 1712. Nathaniel Byfield was also the son of an English Clergyman a member of the famous Westminster Assembly. His Mother was sister of the upright and courageous Bishop Luxon. Who attended Charles i upon the scaffold. Like Valley he returned to Boulton in his old age and died there in 1733. Coming As they did from a Puritan Colony the founders of Bristol did not seek in their new Home to throw off the Puritan traditions in which they had been trained they walked with a deviating Steps in the Faith to which they had been acc Stone d they came to establish a town for trading but they did not for a moment forget the higher conditions on which the >-aviicvv.<jtiuuitvdend8-. 5tenms a a a Ham it is rapidly Jeanng jts final stages tic finals in tie mens singles will be Herd on thursday provide a a Ood weather prevails and spectators will see some excellent matches As the leading players approach the final rounds.
