No genealogist in the past 20 +/- years has found any link between the Quaker Hopes and the Presbyterian Hopes in Chester County PA. All evidence actually supports that they were two completely seperate and unrelated faamilies.

Below is a Chronology that I did several years ago of all documentation on Hope surnamed persons in and around Cester County, you will notice there is a distict seperate path for the Quakers and Presbyterians and that they co-existed in Chester County for decades.

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. I have tried to leave all spelling, sentence structure, punctuation as originally written.
