Portsmouth Real Estate Analysis

Discover Portsmouth RI Real EstatePortsmouth is a town in Newport County, Rhode Island, USA. The population was 17,389 at the 2010 U.S. Census. Portsmouth is the second oldest municipality in Rhode Island, after Providence; it was one of the three colonies which merged to form the Colony of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, the others being Providence and Newport. Geography

According to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 59.3 square miles (154 km2), of which, only 23.2 square miles (60 km2) (39.14%) of it is land and 36.1 square miles (93 km2) (60.86%) of it is water. Most of its land area lies on Aquidneck Island, which it shares with Middletown and Newport. In addition, Portsmouth encompasses some smaller islands, including Prudence Island, Patience Island, Hope Island, and Hog Island. Portsmouth was settled in 1638 by a group of religious dissenters from Massachusetts Bay Colony, including Dr. John Clarke, William Coddington, and Anne Hutchinson. It is named after Portsmouth, Hampshire, England. Roger Williams convinced the settlers that they should go there instead of settling in the Province of New Jersey, where they had first planned on going.

It was founded by the signers of the Portsmouth Compact. Its original Indian name was Pocasset, and it was officially named Portsmouth on May 12, 1639. It became part of the Colony of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations (see Aquidneck Island) and eventually part of the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations.

Portsmouth is the site of one of the earliest and most bizarre murder trials. In 1673, Rebecca Cornell, widow of emigrant Thomas Cornell, died in a suspicious house fire. Her son Thomas Jr. was accused, tried, convicted, and hanged for the crime. There was only circumstantial evidence presented against him, and there were a number of other potential suspects, including his wife and a local Indian. It was also possible that Rebecca simply caught fire trying to stay warm near a fireplace. But an alleged visit of the ghost of Rebecca to a testifying relative was admitted as solid evidence in the case. (This was known as Spectral evidence, which was also admissible evidence in the Salem witch trials; the practice was subsequently abandoned.) This case and its history have been chronicled in the book Killed Strangely: The Death of Rebecca Cornell by Elaine Forman Crane.

Discover Portsmouth RI Real EstatePortsmouth is the site of an important capture during the American War for Independence. Lieutenant Colonel William Barton of Rhode Island captured British Commander at Rhode Island General Richard Prescott there. It is also the site of Rhode Island’s only major battle in that war on Butt’s Hill. Nearby Founder’s Brook is said to have run red with the blood of fallen British soldiers on August 29, 1778. The 1st Rhode Island Regiment was composed mostly of African-American soldiers, and it served in the army of General John Sullivan during the Battle of Rhode Island.
