I am researching my family tree and have found out a little about my Hopkinson ancestors. I would be pleased to hear from anyone who may be interested in any of the following. Rhoda Hopkinson - born 1851, Battyeford. Rhoda married William Oates in Mirfield in 1876. Rhoda's father, George - born 1809, Battyeford. George married Sarah Smith in Mirfield in 1838, the certificate claiming he was a clothier. His father is listed as Thomas Hopkinson. George died in Battyeford in 1866.
