There is a monument in St Paul's Covent Garden, not sure how this relates to your Edward, possibly his father as I have some references to "Edward Hooper jnr of Hurn Court" - although that may be the son you mention.  :-\

There is a detailed genealogy of Dorothy in:
"A genealogical history of the Royal families of England, from William the Conqueror to the present Royal grand children: Treating distinctly of their Marriages, Children, and Collateral Branches: and shewing Their Titles, Offices, Births, Deaths, and Places of Birth and Burial; with a View of their Lives.

Also in this one by Arthur Collins published 1709:

When the Collins was updated in 1756, it now says Edward was of "Hurn-court in com' Southamp. Esq; and died 1749" (not sure if the death refers to Edward or Dorothy.)

Oh well done Monica!

I wish I could find "The Broken Story", just a few references to it. Not on your list, but here is the music to another of Edith COOKE's songs "Two Marionettes"

I studied the OS maps for a while yesterday and came to the same possibility - that Crookbank etc which are very near to the north of Tanfield may be the place. I can see no references to "Burn Crook Hill" or similar in newspapers of the time.  :-\
