Janice recently posted an informative article about HUMPHREY POPE and his
descendants. I descend from him and have this additional input--

8 July 1685-HUMPHREY POPE was one of several hundred men convicted before
Chief Justice Jefferies at the Court of Oyer and Terminer for Dorset,
Somerset and Devon for waging war against the King and sentenced to be
transported to the Americas (sentence enrolled on 4 February 1691). Also
on the list was a JOHN POPE.

24 October 1685-HUMPHREY POPE of Taunton was among those on a list of
rebels convicted after Monmouth's rebellion and transported from Bristol
to Barbados by the frigate "John", Mr. William Stokes.
