b. 20 July 1699, d. 6 February 1759
Father*John Hooper2 b. 5 Jul 1670, d. 9 Jan 1708/9
Mother*Sarah Harden2 b. 3 Dec 1679, d. 19 May 1749
Birth*20 July 1699Thomas Hooper was born on 20 July 1699 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).3,1,2,4
Marriage*18 January 1721/22He married Sarah Packard, daughter of John Packard and Judith Winslow, on 18 January 1721/22 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).5,1,4
(Son-in-Law) Land Transfer2 February 1737In consideration of the paternal love and affection he had for his son-in-law Thomas Hooper and his daughter Sarah, who was identified as the wife of Thomas Hooper, John Packard deeded a parcel of land in Bridgewater to them on 2 February 1737. The Hooper section of Mitchell's 1840 Early History of Bridgewater stated that Sarah Hooper was the daughter of Nathaniel, Samuel or John Packard, and the Packard section of the same source named Nathaniel as the father of the Sarah who married Thomas Hooper. From the deed transfer we can conclude that she was the daughter of John.6,1,7,4
Death*6 February 1759He died on 6 February 1759 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England), at age 59.8,1

Thomas Hooper1

b. 2 April 1668
Father*William Hooper1 b. c 1617, d. 5 Dec 1678
Mother*Ruth ______;

Although not confirmed in the source, it is suspected by this researcher that Ruth, William's second wife, was Thomas' mother because Ruth Hooper signed the document for the relinquishment of her dower on 14 Dec 16641
Birth*2 April 1668Thomas Hooper was born on 2 April 1668 in Reading, Middlesex County, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England).1,2
Marriage*He married Elizabeth Richards, daughter of John Richards.2
Occupation*Thomas learned the trade and became a weaver like his father. He probably inherited the "Loomes and Tackling" which his father willed to either one of his younger two sons who chose that trade.2
Children* The source noted that examination of the records of the town church at Medfield failed to show the mention of the name Hooper from the foundation of the church in 1651 until long after the possible lifetime of Thomas Hooper. The town records gave only the single item of the child John's birth. Examination of early records of adjacent towns yielded the names of two additional individuals whom the author researched further and concluded from "numerous evidences" to have been other sons of Thomas and Elizabeth.2
Residence*13 April 1708Thomas and Elizabeth Hooper had relocated to Medfield, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England), by 13 April 1708.2
Land Transfer*13 April 1708Thomas Hooper, a weaver residing at Medfield, and his wife Elizabeth (Richards) Hooper sold her share of her great-grandfather's estate for 31 pounds, 10 shillings on 13 April 1708. The source reported that the transaction was found in Essex County Deed records.2

Marriage*He married Ann ______.2
Residence*Thomas and Ann Hooper lived in or near Mendon, Worcester County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England), for many years, however there is no record of any office he held in the town or of any property he bought or sold. It appeared to the Hooper researcher that they resided in that part of Mendon which fell within the bounds of Milford when that precinct was set off, for at least Ann attended the Milford church.2
French & Indian War*4 April 1758Thomas' son John enlisted on 4 April 1758 and served in the French and Indian War for 50 days in the company of Captain Nathan Tyler, Colonel Williams' regiment until 24 May 1758. He was described as 18 years of age, from Mendon and the son of Thomas Hooper.2
Relocation*1760Thomas and Ann Hooper moved with their family in 1760 and settled in Bridgetown, Annapolis County, Nova Scotia Province, Canada.3

Father*William Hooper1 b. 26 Dec 1701, d. 1 Jul 1755
Mother*Lois Thomas1 b. 7 Sep 1707, d. 22 Oct 1756
Birth*7 February 1731Thomas Hooper was born on 7 February 1731 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County.1,2
Marriage*15 March 1759He married first Abigail White of Middleborough, daughter of Benjamin White and Ann Bicknell, on 15 March 1759 probably in Middleborough, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).3,4
Revolutionary War*1775Before the Revolutionary War, Thomas served in the local militia, rising from Ensign in 1771 to Captain in 1775. Tradition among members of the Hooper family held that he served in the Revolution also, however no supporting documentation or evidence has been found.3
Name VariationHe was also called Captain Thomas Hooper.4,3
Will*Thomas left a will which mentioned his nephew, Eleazer Cary.1
(Husband) Death28 June 1785Thomas became a widower when Abigail Hooper died on 28 June 1785.3,5
Biographical Info*Thomas was a much respected man. He was a selectman in Bridgewater, and a representative to the General Court in 1776.3
Marriage*10 August 1786He married, second, widow Jane (Howard) Ames, daughter of Dr. Abiel Howard and Silence Washburn, probably shortly on 10 August 1786 when their Intention of Marriage was recorded in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts (Continental Congress). The Ames source reported that the marriage actually took place on 10 Aug 1786 in Middleborough. Nahum Mitchell, in his Bridgewater History, appears to have confused Jane (Howard) Ames, wife of Ebenezer Ames of Bridgewater and her aunt, Sarah (Howard) Ames, wife of Ebenezer Ames of Bridgewater and Easton when, he named Sarah as the "widow" who married Thomas Hooper in 1786. Mitchell, in the Howard section, stated that Jane Howard born in 1742, the daughter of Dr. Abiel Howard and his wife Silence Washburn, married Ebenezer Ames and, in the Ames section, stated that Thomas Hooper married the widow of Ebenezer Ames, Sarah Howard born in 1707, the daughter of Major Jonathan Howard and his wife Sarah Dean. Just to make it more confusing, Sarah's husband Ebenezer Ames was the uncle of Jane's husband Ebenezer Ames, corresponding beautifully with the fact that Sarah was Jane's aunt. In the Howard section of his book, only Sarah's marriage to the uncle Ebenezer Ames of Bridgewater and Easton was identified for Sarah. For Jane, in the Howard section, only her marriage to Ebenezer Ames, the nephew, was mentioned. The Hooper section did not include any mention of Thomas Hooper at all. Further research showed that only the marriage between Captain Thomas Hooper and widow Jane Ames was recorded in Bridgewater and that Sarah (Howard) Ames and her husband, the uncle Ebenezer Ames, had moved from Bridgewater to Easton, Bristol County before the birth of their last child in 1750. Sarah Ames, wife of Ebenezer Ames of Easton, died there in 1763 and didn't marry Thomas Hooper in 1786.6,7,8,9,4,10,11
No Issue*He had no children with either of his wives.3
Death*2 May 1789He died on 2 May 1789 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts, at age 58.12

ResearchNotes Hidden* Although nothing at all was known about William, the Hooper Genealogy speculated that a William Hooper of Rochester, Massachusetts, a private in the company of Edward Hammond, Colonel Theophilus Cotton's regiment on 20 Apr 1775 may have been this William Hooper. The source also suggested that the William Hooper who married Mary Hamm in Providence, Rhode Island, on 8 Aug 1784 was a possible clue.1

Biographical Info*28 August 1747William traveled to Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England), around 1737 to tutor the son of a Boston gentleman.

He was ordained by a council of which the Reverend Benjamin Colman was a leading member, and served a happy pastorate for about nine years. He then accepted the invitation of Trinity (Episcopal) Parish, leaving suddenly for England where he was ordained a second time by the Bishop of Gloucester. He returned to Boston and became the rector of Trinity Parish on 28 August 1747, remaining in that position until his death. Many testimonials are on record to his high character and excellent abilities. He published "The Apostles neither imposters nor enthusiasts" in 1742, and a sermon on the death of Thomas Greene in 1763.2,4
