James Hooper

(14 June 1739 - 15 December 1813)
     James Hooper was christened on 14 June 1739 in Ednam, Roxburghshire, Scotland. James, son of Robert Hopper & Mergery Dauson. He was the son of Robert Hooper and Margery Dawson. James was a mercer in 48 & 149 New Bond St, London, England. Atwick & Hooper were mercers at Coventry Cross in New Bond St, from 1763, being succeeded in 1788 by James Hooper at the Coventry Cross, no. 149 New Bond St. [Signboards of old London shops by Sir Ambrose Heal, 1947]. He was a mercer at 48 New Bond St from 1776 to 1788, and at 149 New Bond St from 1789-1804 (10?), his business being called The Coventry Cross. The 1790 Universal British Directory lists him as mercer, 149 New Bond St. He and John Elphick Fawler witnessed John Hooper and Mary Fawler's wedding on 27 February 1769 in St Saviour, Southwark, Surrey, England.
     James Hooper married Katherine Saxon, daughter of John Saxon and Katherine Kidwell, on 23 December 1775 in St George, Hanover Square, Westminster, Middlesex, England.
     James Hooper made a will dated 27 March 1811.
     James died on 15 December 1813 in Soho, Westminster, England, aged 74. 15 Dec. Full of years, and rich in good works, like a shock of corn in due season, calm, gentle and resigned, of an inveterate pulmonary complaint, James Hooper, esq. For many years, this gentleman conducted a large business as a mercer in Bond St., with great reputation and profit; latterly, he had retired to his house in Cheyne Walk, Chelsea; but he died at a friend's residence in the vicinity of his own antient dwelling. He lived with the general regard of all who knew him: his decease has converted the fondness of familiar esteem into the veneration of heartfelt regret. His good name will flourish among his valuable and numerous descendants.
     His will was proved on 31 December 1813 at the Prerogative Court of Canterbury.
