Hooper of Boveridge, Cranbourne, Dorset
« on: Tuesday 19 October 21 23:08 BST (UK) »
Looking for any information, dates, etc. for Edward Hooper, of Boveridge House, his wife Lady Dorothy Ashley and their family. All I know is that they married at Sutton, co. Surrey 22 May 1700 and had at least 3 children, Edward, Thomas and Dorothy. Son Edward has an online Wikipedia entry, was M.P. and was born 16th April 1702 and died 6th September 1795.
I have no info on the parents or his siblings. Any information would be appreciated.

Many thanks.

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. Together with The Descent of the several Foreign Princes now reigning, and of the several Noble and Eminent Families in England, that are sprung from the Blood Royal of this Kingdom, down to the Present Year. Collected from Mr. Rapin, and other authentic historians, Necessary to refer to In reading larger Histories of England, or other Kingdoms connected with Great Britain, many being remarkably deficient in Genealogy"
Publication Date 1753

Also in this one by Arthur Collins published 1709:
http://www.rootschat.com/links/01r0a/

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.)

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.  :-\
"Mary Hooper, third daughter of Edward Hooper of Hurn Court in the County of Southampton, Esq., March 30, 1696.
With her lie interred two Daughters of Catherine her eldest Sister, by John Venables of Woodcot in Hampshire, Esq., Mary and Elizabeth Venables."

Many, many thanks maddys52 for everything you've sent me. So sorry about my delay in replying and thanking you... just home from work!

I'll need to go through all the info and links you've sent me and direct what are Edward and Dorothy Hoopers family or not, etc. It all puts great meat on the bones and helps paint a picture of them. I added the Horn Court to my internet searches and this throws up a lot of extra details, all earlier Hooper generations than the the Edward H and Dorothy Ashley one unfortunately.

The parish churches for that district seem to be St Aldhelm's Church, Boveridge and the Parish Church of St Mary & St Bartholomew in the village of Cranborne. Do you have access to any of these parishes to check if their are any BMD records for the family in these ?
I know from Wikipedia that Edward was born 16th April 1702, and his parents married in 1700. So Thomas and Dorothy were probably born between 1700 and 1710 I would guess.

Many thanks again, Craig

I have had a look at the Cranborne parish register:

Edward, son of Edward HOOPER Esq bap 22 April 1702
Thomas, son of Edward HOOPER Esq bap 23 Jan 1703/1704 (you probably know in this time the year began in April, so a Jan baptism was recorded as 1703)
Dorothy, dau of Edward HOOPER Esq bap 11 April 1705.


There is also an Edward, son of Edward HOOPER Esq bap 26 Feb 1700/01 and bu 20 Mar 1700/01.

I checked the register up to 1712 but didn't see any more baptisms.

As you already know,
 " Marriages  A.D. 1700
Edward Hooper of Boveridge in the County of Dorset and the Lady Dorothy Ashley of Wimborne St Giles in the same County May 22."
