  1. Since I am also a direct descendent of the Hopwood Family I’m interested in the restoration of Hopwood Hall.
    My grandmother was Jane Isobel Hopwood daughter of Josph Hopwood whose great, great uncle was John Hopwood. He was the great, great, great grandfather of Herbert Hopwood Black father of Hopwood DePree.
    I have traced the family tree back to Sir James Hopwood, Knight of Dundonald, 1420-1486 and beyond.
    I am quite proud of the Hopwood Family and I have ordered Hopwood DePree’s new book.
