Hi,
Yes I am connected to that family tree of Nicholas Hopkins. My Uncle and I have been looking to see could we find any information about the family.

What is your own connection to the family?

Hi,

I am part of a very large Hopkins family (Protestants mostly) who started in the townland of Strathnakelly in County Wicklow.   There are many branches, but I do not know if and how your group fits in.   They all appear to have been coopers by trade and lived in and around Tullow in Co. Carlow.   There were other Hopkins who were also coopers so they were likely related.

Nicholas Hopkins (1828-1913) was James father and a Benjamin Hopkins was the grandfather.
All this from a Gregg Family Tree.

Where do you fit in?
Part of the Strathnakelly group lived north of there in Kill.

Let me know what you have and how you fit in and I will see if I can help with what I have.

Hi Ross,

If you look at Andy D's original post at the beginning of this Thread:

"I am tracing the tree on behalf of a friend and trying to gain information on a James Hopkins born 1879 County Carlow.  He married Mary Toole I believe in 1899.  They had 6 children, and I believe James may have remarried after the death of Mary.  James and Mary resided in Cross Keys, Tullow in 1901.  James occupation in 1902 was a labourer.  But in 1923 he was a Policeman.

His son Nicholas Born 1908 married a Mary Dooley in 1937.  Believe the Hopkins still reside in the Carlow area".

The last line mentions Nicholas who married Mary Dooley in 1937. This couple were my grandparents. The line Andy mentions above is the one I am Interested in. I am not sure of where this group fits in with yours...
