Bristol's Hope, Newfoundland and Labrador


Bristol's Hope, Newfoundland and Labrador

Bristol's Hope is a Canadian community in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador.

It is located on Conception Bay between Carbonear and Harbour Grace.

Bristol's Hope claims to be the second Newfoundland colony established by Bristol's Society of Merchant Venturers. It was a "sister" colony to Cuper's Cove, and was established in 1618 when the "Society" won a land grant from King James I of England, and was settled by colonists from Cuper's Cove. Robert Hayman was the colony's only Proprietary Governor.

The colony existed at least until 1631, before being abandoned.
