Can you tell me anymore about your HOPCRAFTs please.
My Great Grandfather was Jesse HOPCROFT (although it is spelt HOPCRAFT on his birth certificate!). He was born on February 6 1873 in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire to James HOPCROFT (HOPCRAFT) and Elizabeth FIGG.
Hertfordshire is quite close to Buckinghamshire and I beleive that the family originated there and may have been HOPCRAFT to begin with. They also moved down to London. My Grandmother was born in Paddington, London.
