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. His education and his other gifts led the people of the newly organized West (Congregational) Church of Boston to call upon him to be their pastor. 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
