History of Bristol, Rhode Island: The Story of the Mount Hope Lands - Wilfred H. Munro. Beginning with the visits of the Northmen, the historical narrative moves forward through accounts of the Indian wars, the character and lives of the early settlers in Bristol, the events of the American Revolution, the privateers of the War of 1812, the commerce of the port, and sketches of the region's distinguished men as it progresses towards the present. Genealogical information is presented in the form of records from churches, lists of freemen, businessmen, selectmen and constables. There is also a "Roll of Honor" of Bristol men who served in the Civil War, and a roll of representatives in the General Court of Plymouth Colony, 1682-1692; the General Court of Massachusetts, 1692-1746; and in the General Assembly of Rhode Island from 1747 to 1880.
