Hello Michelle, I do have some Hopleys from Kirkdale. 1) Thomas b. c.1823 in Wales. 2) Mary (wife) b. c.1823 in Ireland. 3) Mary (daughter) b. poss 1858/62. 4) Ruth (daughter) b. poss 1852/55. In 1871 they were living in/near St Helens only a short distance from Kirkdale. Mary (3) married Henry Tomlinson in 1885 and they then both gave their address as Kirkdale. They are very elusive ! I can't find Mary's or Ruth's birth nor Ruth's marriage although I believe it was to a Murphy whose first name I do not yet know. I have only recently started to look at this part of the family so my info. is rather sketchy. If there is anything in the above which rings a bell let me know and in any case let's keep in touch. Regards, Tony.
