Benjamin Hopton m. Rebecca BOOTH - CORRECTION
Posted by: Patricia Hopton (ID *****9691) Date: February 20, 2003 at 05:43:57
  of 97

English origins Yorkshire gg-grandparents.
Can anybody help me with further information on my relatives.
BENJAMIN HOPTON was born in 1827 Halifax, Yorkshire.
REBECCA BOOTH was born in 1837 Registered in Dewsbury, Yorkshire.
BENJAMIN HOPTON married REBECCA BOOTH, 27 Feb 1853 in Halifax.
They are shown to be living in Brighouse on the marriage certificate.
Their parents were JOHN HOPTON (wife Unknown) and SAMUEL BOOTH + SARAH SHARP, the men were all coal miners.
Benjamin & Rebecca had a daughter ESTHER born 1854 Bradford.
They emigrated to Australia in 1855, departing Liverpool aboard the clipper 'Donald Mckay' 6th June 1855.
Also Benjamin had brothers William (b1814/1815 Dewsbury), Joseph b1820/21 Flancy Hill), Squire (b1832/1833 Halifax) and on the 1851 census they are shown living together in Brighouse with the head of the household not listed.
Has anybody got access to an earlier census say 1841 or 1831 or 1821 as I am hopeful to get any further information on this family especially the mothers name (she is my ggg/grandmother).
Also does anybody know where Flancy Hill was located?
Thanks go to anyone who is able to help me as I have run into a brick wall with my internet research.
Kind regards Patricia Hopton (Queensland, Australia)


Thanks in anticipation Trish Hopton, Queensland, Australia.
