9781332194865: Seventeenth Century Place-Names of Providence Plantations (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Seventeenth Century Place-Names of Providence Plantations

In the following alphabetical index and accompanying map the attempt is made to locate every, place-name mentioned in the Providence records before 1700 and included within the original town of Providence as granted by the Indians to the early, colonists, i. E., the territory between the Pawtuxet River and the Blackstone River. A concise description is given of each name in order that it may be located on a modern map. In the case of those names which are still in use, the modern spelling has been generally adopted, with note of the fact if the early spelling is greatly at variance with that of the pres ent day. In calculating distances given in early surveys it should be remembered that the surveyors used both the 162and the 18 foot pole, and that consequently a distance can often only be approximated. It should also be borne in mind that the magnetic north of the latter part of the I 7th century varied about 12° west of the true astronomical north used on the re cent government maps and on many modern surveys.
