Patrick,I found this in the HOPKINS OF VIRGINIA book, p314."On Aug. 1, 1698, James Eakins, Sr. carried Benjamin Hopkins before the Court for inspection of his age and he was adjudged ten years old." (Book 3, p200) This was in Henrico Co. VA. Do you know anything about this? Was James Akins a guardian of Benjamin?
James Akins daughter Elizabeth married John Farley. Their son James had a daughter Elizabeth "Betty" Phillips Farley who married a Benjamin Hopkins. This Benjamin is my "wall". I can find no info on Hopkins in early Henrico Co. Could there be a connection between these 2 Benjamin Hopkins?
I live in a very rural area and the early VA records are very limited online. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.
