Good Hope in Trelawny, Jamaica, consisted of one thousand acres and was originally settled and named in 1744 by Colonel Thomas Williams who was the grandson of one of the first settlers in the island after its conquest by the English. It was purchased in 1767 by John Tharp and became his base from which he operated most of the estates in the area, especially those bordering on the Martha Brae river, which could use water power to drive the sugar mills.

So much has been published on Goood Hope that I have not yet taken the time to write our own page.
