(where he farmed land) in the year 1692 one Mary Jophing or Jopling?, from him I have the pedigree correct. There was a John Hooper (also spelt Hopper, Hoper & Hooper) living at Sprowston the adjoining parish in 1703 - of him there is no attainable information. The tradition in the family of Robert Hooper my great great grandfather has always been that the family came from a branch of the Hoopers of Beveridge, Dorset, which was implicated in Monmouth's rebellion... I send you extracts from the pedigree of Hoopers of Beveridge whose arms we have always borne...". "The Robert Hooper for whom I have long searched, to find his family and where he came from (a relation of the Bishop as per family tradition) died at Stitchell in Roxburgh NB 1596. He married Anne Dickson & left a large family where presumably he had been settled there for some time... waffle about the Bishop and New Sarum family". "Your surmise about Robert Hooper coming from Barbados may be correct. Still, the family tradition connects him with the Monmouth Rebellion, the names of the rebels (John, Henry & William) in the next generation are in the registers for Kelso neighbourhood and I am inclined to believe that Robert was the son of James the rebel".

Thomas Hooper

(7 April 1751 - 1 August 1798)
     Family Connections and Life of James Hooper Paper by Elizabeth Boyle in Filing Case A at the Maryland Historical Society [online] states: John Hooper’s brother Thomas married a lady of large estate in London, England where he afterwards lived.
     Hooper, Thomas (ca. 1746-ca. 1821), Wilmington and Charleston merchant, and alleged Loyalist, was born in Boston, Mass., the son of Mary Dennie and the Reverend William Hooper, who became rector of Trinity Episcopal Church in 1747. He was the younger brother of William, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, and George. Thomas received his preparatory education at the Boston Latin School but unlike his older brother William, who studied law, he went into service in a mercantile house with his brother George. After William was admitted to the bar in Boston in 1764, Thomas and his two brothers went to Wilmington, N.C., where they were welcomed by the planters, merchants, and lawyers of the town. The Hooper brothers were said to be handsome, with charm, grace of manner, and cultivated minds but tempered with aristocratic reserve. Thomas and George established a mercantile partnership in the lower Cape Fear and later Thomas opened a branch of their firm in Charleston, where he rapidly accumulated a great fortune.
During the American Revolution, Thomas became suspect as a British merchant and some of his goods were seized by Patriot committees. On 21 Jan. 1779 he petitioned the House of Commons of the General Assembly to be admitted as a citizen of the state but he was rejected. In 1780 Hooper was one of several signers of an address to General Sir Henry Clinton in Charleston, but his large mercantile business still prospered. His wife became W and went to England in 1782; Hooper followed and they soon traveled to France, returning to Wilmington in July 1785.
In July 1786, Governor William Moultrie of South Carolina wrote to Governor Richard Caswell of North Carolina asking that he intervene with the commissioner of confiscated property to restore Hooper's property to him. Moultrie advised Caswell that Hooper had become a citizen of South Carolina on 10 Oct. 1783. Caswell submitted 'he letter to the General Assembly and implied that the state should honor another state's request. By the winter of 1786-87 with the ratification of the Definitive Treaty between the former colonies and Britain, Thomas and his brother George were free from threat of banishment and their property was restored to them.
While he lived in Wilmington or visited there, he attended St. James Episcopal Church. He died in Charleston, S.C.
