Rev William Hooper

(5 March 1704 - 14 April 1767)
      Family Connections and Life of James Hooper, Paper by Elizabeth Boyle in Filing Case A at the Maryland Historical Society online states: Mr. [James] Hooper was a great grandson of Reverend William Hooper whose history is as follows: William Hooper born in the neighborhood of Kelso an old and considerable town of south of Scotland and seems to have been of a family quite independent in character and connections. At the village of Edanham or Edenmouth about two miles from Kelso this William was born in the year 1702. He graduated from the University of Edinburgh immediately on his becoming (of) age and soon after emigrated to America. In Boston when he fixed his residence he married Miss Mary Dennie. Their engagement was recorded October 18, 1739 (Boston Marriages book 28 page 233). One history tells us she was the twin sister of John Dennie and another history records her as the daughter of John Dennie a prominent merchant of Boston. She was therefore the great granddaughter of James Dennie who died May 7, 1691 (born about 1641 and who was the same ancestor of James and Mary Dennie of Boston to whom a daughter was also born in 1666 named Mary. They were grandparents to John Dennie.“Spragues” Annals of the American Pulpit Vol. Page 123 gives the following history of William Hooper born in Scotland in 1702.
William Hooper came to this country a short time before his settlement here in the ministry. The West (Congregational) Church Boston was gathered on the third of June 1737 and on the same day Mr. Hooper was unanimously chosen its Pastor. He accepted the call and was ordained on the 18th day of May following. The sermon on the occasion was preached by himself. It is stated all the parts in the solemnities of the occasion were assigned by the church except one, that the minister and delegates claimed a right in the election of a person to give the right hand of fellowship.
Mr. Hooper continued in the exercise of his ministerial functions with great acceptance until the autumn of 1746 when without having given any previous intimation of his intentions he made a sudden transition to the Episcopal Church. The fact thus recorded by the Boston Evening Post of November 24 of that year: “Wednesday last the proprietors of Trinity Church in this town made choice of Reverend William Hooper (then settled Pastor of the church in west part of town) for their minister in the room of the Reverend Mr. Addington Davenport, deceased. Mr. Hooper immediately accepted the call and is going home for Orders in the Chester Man-of-War which we hear is to sail today or tomorrow. This event is the more surprising as Mr. Hooper had never signified his intention to any of his hearers nor was there the least difference between him and them and it is generally thought no minister was ever better respected and supported by his people than Mr. Hooper.
The ship in which Mr. Hooper embarked for England is said to have sailed on Sunday and it was natural that this circumstance should have been to his disadvantage especially by those who had no sympathy in the object contemplated by his voyage.” After receiving Episcopal ordination from Bishop Benson in 1747, He returned to Boston and was inducted to the Rectorship of Trinity Church on the 28th of August of that year. The first deacon of the West Church Mr. James Gouch accompanied his minister to his new ecclesiastical and died it is believed in the Communion of the Episcopal Church in 1786 at the age of ninety three. Mr. Hooper seems to have had an acceptable ministry in Trinity Church as he had previously had in the West Church and the agitation produced by his change of relations was not of long duration. His later pastoral connections continued for twenty years lacking four months. He dropped dead in his garden without any previous illness on Tuesday the 14th of April 1767. His funeral was attended on the Friday following and a sermon preached on that occasion by the Reverend William Walters from Rev. XIX, 13.. Rev William Hooper was christened on 5 March 1704 in Ednam, Roxburghshire, Scotland. Robert Hopper's son William baptised. He was the son of Robert Hooper and Mary Japhray.
     William matriculated at Edinburgh University before 1723. He graduated 26 March 1723, MA.
William Hooper was born in Scotland, in the year 1702, and soon after leaving the university of Edinburgh emigrated to America. He settled in Boston, where he became connected in marriage with the daughter of Mr John Dennie, a respectable merchant. Not long after his emigration, he was elected pastor of Trinity Church, in Boston, in which office, such were his fidelity and affectionate intercourse with the people of his charge, that long after his death he was remembered by them with peculiar veneration and regard . William was minister of the West Church at Boston, Massachusetts, USA, in 1737. He served as paster of a Congregational church and later as the second rector of Trinity Episcopal church in Boston from 1747-67.
See: http://www.hoopercompass.com/pubs/HC2_2011.pdf.
Rev William Hooper married Mary Dennie on 18 October 1739 in Boston, Suffolk county, Massachusetts, USA.
     Rev William Hooper travelled in 1746 per the "The Hoopercompass website states: ... late in 1746, William Hooper set sail for England. The Boston Evening Post commented "It is generally thought no minister in the county was ever better respected and supported by his people."(11)
Hooper carried with him to London several testimonials about his character. One of the testimonials had been written by the royal governor. Unbeknownst to Hooper, his wardens, and vestry, another Boston churchman had tried to subvert the ordination. When word of the opposition in England reached Boston, the wardens and vestry held an emergency meeting on 21 May 1747: Several letters being read informing that Mr. Hooper who this Church hath presented to the Bishop of The vestry and wardens were incensed. They wrote to the Bishop in London insisting on the selection of Mr. Hooper, stating that they "found no cause to alter their said Choice." They likewise wrote to Mr. Hooper, promising to stand by him. They even enlisted the assistance of other churches. The letter
written by the King's Chapel Anglicans reveals the admiration Mr. Hooper commanded in Boston:
Boston N. E. June 5, 1747
May it please Your Lordship
Our Bretheren of Trinity Church being under great Dificultys & Discouragements by reason of Mr. William Hoopers Ordination being put off on account as we heare of some representations made of Him to your Lordship as a person whome Common Fame reports to be of bad Morals & Haveing desired Us to acquaint your Lordship of Mr. Hoopers Character so farr as we are able Since His first Setelment in Boston to his Departure last Fall We the Church Wardens & vestry of the Kings Chapell do Solemnly declare that we know not of any Imoralitys he has been charged with since he had been a Dissenting Teacher in this Town but that he has Maintained a very fair Character here, and from His constantly taking his Turn with the rest of the Teachers in this Town in the Weekly Lecture and the Great Love
& Esteem His people had for Him till he left them must be of the oppinion that He is a Gentelman of Good Morals …(12)
Long before the letters could reach England, Edmund Lord Bishop of London ordered Martyn, Lord Bishop of Gloucester, to ordain William Hooper into priestly orders. Then on 10 Jun 1747, the Bishop of London
licensed Reverend Hooper to preach and officiate in New England. Reverend Hooper immediately sought a return passage to Boston. The Trinity Church records note on 24 August 1747:
The Revd. Mr. William Hooper arrived in Health & Safety from England. Blessed be God.
Only four days later, the church's proprietors inducted Reverend Hooper. Although it was a Friday, there were
many other members of the congregation present. They saw Reverend Hooper perform his first "Divine Service according to the Rubrick & Liturgy of the Church of England" as Incumbent Minister of Trinity Church.(13) He continued his ministry in that church until his death. When Reverend Hooper went to England, his wife Mary remained in Boston. She was expecting another child and gave birth in the spring of 1747. So, the third son George Hooper was christened at Trinity Church on 15 May 1747, while his father was absent in England.
Not quite nine months after Reverend Hooper returned, he celebrated the birth of a daughter whom he named Mary. On 15 May 1748, he officiated at her christening. Youngest son Thomas was baptized on 7 April 1751.(14)
Rev William Hooper emigrated on 7 July 1747 to New England, USA. Dobson quotes The Scots overseas, London 1966 and 'List of emigrant ministers to America 1690-1811. G Fothergill, London, 1904, in his books Directory of Scottish settlers in North America 1625-1825. This date contradicts his claim that he was minister in Boston in 1737 - hhowever this date is 'sh' and I'm not sure of its meaning.. William was the second rector of Trinity Episcopal church at Boston.
     William died on 14 April 1767 in Boston, Massachusetts, aged 63. The Reverend William Hooper had been pastor of the West Congregational Church since it was formed in 1737. Suddenly in 1747 he became an Episcopalian. He had been beloved and honored and everybody was taken by surprise. At once the proprietors of Trinity Church chose him to be their Rector and he went to England for orders. He retainedhis parish for twenty years and then died suddenly while walking in his garden. He changed partly because of the argument for Episcopacy, but mainly because of the more liberal theology. It does not seem strange to us that our second Rector was the father of one of the signers of the Declaration.”The Boston Evening Post of November 24, 1746 reported “Wednesday last, the proprietors of Trinity Church in this town made choice of Reverend William Hooper (then settled pastor of the Church in the west part of town) for their minister, in the room of the Reverend Mr. Addington Davenport, deceased. Mr. Hooper immediately accepted the call and is going home for Orders in the Chester Man of War, whichwe hear is to sail today or tomorrow. This event is the more surprising as Mr. Hooper had never signified his intention to any of his hearers, nor was there the least difference between him and them and it is generally thought no minister was ever better respected and supported by his people than Mr. Hooper.” William received Episcopal Ordination from the Bishop Benson of London. His Orders dated June 1747 existed thru 1894 much mutilated in this form:By or of these presents. We Martin by Divine po Glocester known unto all men that on of June (being Tuesday in Whitsunweek) in the year of Ou(r Lord) and seven hundred and forty seven, we the Bishop before in administering Holy Orders under the protection of the Alm of Chapel of St. James in Westminster did awarding eremonics of the Church of England admit Our beloved m Hooper, M.A. of Boston in New England to the H ests he being well recommended to us by our Right Rev Edmund Lord Bishop of London who certified to us his exam probation of the said William Hooper in regard to his age ng and Title and Having first before us taken the Oaths the Articles which are in this case by Laws required to b and subscribed – and that We did then and there duly and nominally ordain him Priest. In Testimony whereof We have used Our Episcopal Seal to be here unto affixed. Dated the Day and Year aforesaid, and in the thirteenth Year of our Consecration. M. (seal) GlocesterThis document may still be in the possession of William Hooper’s descendants at Wilmington, North Carolina.Reverend Hooper returned to Boston from London to begin service at Trinity Church on August 28, 1747. He had served there for 19 years and 8 months when he dropped dead in his garden (see above) without previous illness on Tuesday, April 14, 1767. The Reverend William Walters preached the sermon at his funeral the following Friday.. He was buried in Trinity Church, Boston.

A petition asking that Hooper be appointed postmaster of the proposed new post and telegraph office. Nothing came of the petition but he remained a resident for many years as a book-keeper or accountant. He was listed in directories dated between 1866 and 1867 as Wm Henry Hooper, book-keeper, Deniliquin, New South Wales. William was an auctioneer and accountant between 1865 and 1893, in Deniliquin. He advertised in the Pastoral times from 1869. William was the Registrar of births, deaths and marriages from 1874, in Deniliquin.

     William died of acute bronchitis (5 days) on 8 May 1906 in Deniliquin, New South Wales, aged 71. In his obituary published 12 May 1906 [paper not quoted]: Born London 1834, 72 years of age. First arrived at Deniliquin 1863, when he was first employed by J N Alexander, later Mort & Watson's store. Alexander had applied for the Post Office, but Hooper was appointed the Post Master for some unknown reason. He was employed by Mort & Watson as accountant for some 30 years. During this time he was treasurer of the hospital, later with the Deniliquin & Moama Railway Company and the Riverina Brewery Company. Also held some position with Deniliquin Municipal Council. Was a widower with four sons. In June 1892 he left Mort & Watson, after 29 years, and started as accountant on his own next to Sinclair's Coffee Palace, later the Australian Club Hotel (was Tattersalls when demolished in 1963).
     The Pastoral times newspaper of 12 May reported: William Henry Hooper: After an illness of only a few days' duration a very old and respected townsman, Mr. William Henry Hooper, passed away on Tuesday afternoon. Mr. Hooper, though not looking well, at the end of last week completed, with Mr R H Turnbull, the audit of the Municipal Council's books, and on Saturday became ill with an attack of bronchitis. He suffered acutely for the next three days, and succumbed to the attack on Tuesday afternoon. The fact that he was seriously ill was not known to many of his friends, so that the announcement of his death was quite unexpected.
The late Mr. Hooper was born in London in 1834, so that at the time of his death he was 72 years of age. He left England for Victoria at the time of the early gold rushes in the adjoining State, and he first arrived in Deniliquin about 1863. From that date until his death - a period of 43 years - he was a resident of the town. Like the majority of those who may be rightly termed pioneers of the town, Mr. Hooper was one who took an active interest in the welfare of Deniliquin and district, and for many years he was an energetic worker in connection with local public bodies, chief among which may be mentioned his services on behalf of the Hospital. He was a member of the committee for a number of years, he fulfilled the duties of president for a term, and he acted as treasurer for a long period. His advance in years caused his retirement from active participation in public work several years ago.
For a period of over 30 years Mr. Hooper was with the firm of Mort and Watson as accountant, and in later years after leaving the firm his services as auditor were availed on by the Deniliquin and Moama Railway Co., the Riverina Brewery Co. and the Municipal Council, while in an honorary capacity he acted as auditor for several local bodies. He was held in high esteem by a very large circle of friends, and his death has removed a familiar figure in the community, and one very closer associated with the everyday affairs of the town.
Deceased leaves a widow, four sons, and a daughter, viz. Mr Arthur Hooper manager of the wool department of Goldsbrough, Mort and Co., Melbourne; Charles Hooper, of Brawarrina; Mr Sidney Hooper, Union Bank inspector; Murray Hooper, teller at the Bank of New South Wales, Ararat, and Mrs J Jeremy of Wagga. The funeral took place on Thursday afternoon, the remains were interred in the local cemetery in the presence of a representative gathering townsmen, The burial service was read by Rev. R Smee
. He was buried on 10 May 1906 in Deniliquin.
     His will was proved on 13 July 1906 at New South Wales.
