Attention Hopping and Hoppin family branches in the United States, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United Kingdom:
I am pleased to advise that Charles Arthur Hoppin’s genealogy of the Hoppin(g) family, The Life and Times of Our Ancestors in Devonia, completed in 1912 is now available on CD.
The original hand-typed manuscript of this unpublished book has recently been digitized and includes 300 plus pages of extensive research carried out by the author in Devon, England during the first decade of the 20th century. The book chronicles the evolution of the Hoppin(g) name, parish and court records as well as biographical information on prominent Hopping individuals who lived in and near Exeter from the 1300’s through to the 1700’s. The book also provides information regarding the three founders of the three Hoppin(g) branches that immigrated to North America between 1639 and 1678.
A companion hand-drawn wall chart of the American branches has also been digitized. The chart illustrates the three branches with many of the descendants from the 1600’s through to the early 20th century. The book, wall chart and a history of the manuscript are included on one CD (pdf).
To find out how you can obtain a copy of the CD please contact Anne Hopping at firstname.lastname@example.org or follow the link to the Hopping Family Archive Project at the new website address: http://hoppingfamily.home.comcast.nethttp://hoppingfamily.home.comcast.net and go to the tab, “More About The Hopping Family Archive Project”.
