I would be very interested to hear from anybody out there researching Hookins families! My great grandmother was Elizabeth Ann Hookins who was born in Brompton Ralph, Somerset in c1836. She married an Alfred Coppen in Marylebone, London in 1864.....would be interesting to know how she came to be in London! Her parents were John and Sarah Hookins. John was born in c1800 in Brompton Ralph and Sarah was born in Stogumber, a nearby village in c1863. John was a master cordwainer. I visited the village some years ago, a lovely quiet place, and found one or two Hookins gravestones in the churchyard but do not know how or if they connect.
