A FAMILY HISTORY BY F. S. READER. 1902: PRESS OF F. S. READER & SON, NEW BRIGHTON, PA. PREFACE.

This family history centers in one of the pioneer families of Washington county,Pa., Colonel William Wallace and Elizabeth Hopkins, his wife, who were born,reared and married in Montgomery county, Md., and built their home in thewilds of Western Pennsylvania. From this central point the history of theancestors and descendants of all the families connected with this couple in the United States is given, so far as it has been possible to secure the facts; and it is a typical history of the pioneers generally, who have built up the waste places and made them possible for human habitation. The ancestors of Colonel Wallace were among the pioneers and early settlers of the territory now included in Montgomery county, Md. The facts for the compilation of this history, were obtained from the Court records of Prince George, Frederick, Montgomery and Anne Arundel counties,Md., and Washington county, Pa.; Archives of Maryland, New Hampshire and Pennsylvania; Library of Congress; Col. T. H. S. Boyd's history of Montgomery county, Md.; Hon. Boyd Crumrine's and Alfred T. Creigh's histories, and Baer & Co's Commemorative Biographical Record, of Washington county, Pa.;

History of the Early Churches Washington county, Pa.; Virginia Genealogies by Rev. Horace E. Hayden; the Genealogical Collection of John H. Wallace, Esq., New York; and such family histories as could be secured. No material has been used without verification by means of all sources of information that could be secured, and every family line and historical statement relating to the families mentioned, is believed to be accurate and reliable.  It is simply a family history, and it is hoped will interest and profit those directly interested, and all who are curious to trace family growth. 

IV. THE HOPKINS FAMILY

THE HOPKINS FAMILY.

The Eleanor Hopkins mentioned in the will of James Wallace as his daughter,was the wife of John Hopkins, as is shown by the following deed of John Hopkins and his wife, Eleanor, to Joseph Penn November 11, 1777:

"Whereas, James Wallace, late of Frederick county, Md., deceased, in his lifetime, towit, March 28, 1749, obtained a patent for 200 acres of land called Weavers Denn, then in Frederick county, now in Montgomery county, Md., and by his last will and testament did give and bequeath to his daughter, Eleanor, wife of said John Hopkins, etc."

The family records state that this John Hopkins came from Scotland, but there is no record to show when he came to this country. On October 6, 1745, John Hopkins, Sr., and his wife, Elizabeth, deeded 100 acres of land to Thomas Ankeny, which was witnessed by James Hopkins and James Wallace, Jr., and March 12, 1756. Thomas Boydestone deeded to John Hopkins a tract of land called Boydestone Discovery on Piney creek and the Potomac river. August 8, 1759 he sold 175 acres of this tract to William Chambers, September 13, 1767  Thomas Stump sold John Hopkins 66 1/2

 

Page 23

acres in Stump's valley, and October 13, 1767 Walter Evan deeded to John Hopkins an island of 32 acres in the Potomac river, which Mr. Hopkins deeded to Samuel Tramwell September 6, 1773. October 25, 1779, John Hopkins, of Yohogania county, Va., now Washington county, Pa., sold the 66 1/2 acres in Stump's valley to Osborne Pile.

There seem to have been four distinct Hopkins families in the section covered by the present Montgomery and Anne Arundel counties. The first on record is that of William Hopkins, who owned Hopkins' plantation on Greenberry's Point among the Men of Severn in 1657. He was granted 60 acres of land May 10, 1671, which was deeded to Thomas Tucker November 10, 1679. Another tract was granted to him of 150 acres February 25, 1684, which he sold to Richard Sorrell June 9, 1685. Other transactions are also on record.  In the same county there was a Gerard Hopkins, among the Men of Severn 1658. It is doubtless his will dated October 12, 1691, in which he names his wife Thomsin, son Gerard, and daughters Anne, Thomsin and Mary. Gerard Hopkins married Margaret Johns, and they had seven children. Joseph. Gerard, Philip, Samuel, Richard, William, and Johns Hopkins, all born between 1706 and 1720. Of these children Richard married and had nine children, among whom there was a Gerard. Gerard Hopkins, doubtless the third, owned a large quantity of land in Frederick county, Md., the tracts being named Hope Improved, Trouble Enough, None Left and Friendship, some of which appears later in the name of Gerard Hopkins, Jr. Johns Hopkins, the founder of Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Md., was a descendant of this family.

In the year 1742, Mathew Hopkins, of Kilmarnock, County of Ayr, Scotland, came to Rock Creek, now in Montgomery county, Md., where he died January 1751. He bought from Osburn Spriggs August 26, 1741, a tract of 300 acres of land called Sallop and later bought other lands. At his death he left a widow, Mary, who afterwards married Henry Thralkeld, but they had no children. James Hopkins, brother of Mathew, County of Ayr, was appointed by his mother to act as her attorney, to receive all property that might be due her from Mathew's estate. The power of attorney was dated April 29, 1752, and May 24, 1753, James Hopkins deeded to Henry Thralkeld and wife the tract of land called Sallop, and a part of the tract known as Resurvey, a part of which was incorporated in Georgetown, D. C. There is no record that James Hopkins remained in Maryland. It is probable that these families were related, but the evidence is not available to make it clear and beyond doubt.

The information prior to (as well as the sibling info for ) Andrew Hopkins

have done little research other than on the Andrew Hopkins/Ann(e) Townsend
family, so I don't have many dates to include.

This deed shows the Ezkiel Hopkins of Chester Co. PA is NOT the same as
the Ezekiel Hopkins of Washington Co. PA (who m. Sarah Hazzard c 1758
and had lots of children)

Notice that the Sarah Hopkins mentioned here is this Ezekiel's SISTER
while Sarah (Richison) Ogden is his niece.  Ezekiel's other sister Ruth
had died leaving her husband Samuel Richison and the Richison children
to sell the land.  This Ezekiel died before this deed of 1822.

Hi,

The only info I have on Hopkins in my family is a marriage licsense between
Martha Jane Hopkins and John Syfrit. Dated 1863. They were from Chester
Pennsylvania and Marcus Hook. They're both buried in chester rural cemetary.
The grave is unmarked and owned currently by their daughter and my great
grandmother. It was originally purchased by a Hopkins that I have no name on
as of yet. Does any of this sound familiar?
