James “Jemmy” Hope (1764-1847) was a prominent member of the United Irishmen amongst the Presbyterians of Ulster, and took part in both the 1798 and 1803 rebellions. Generally considered of the more radical members of the United Irishmen due to his writings on class struggle, shortly before his death at the age of 83 in 1847, he wrote a memoir to historian R. R. Madden expanding on his views and his involvement within the United Irishmen.
