Father*William Hooper2 b. 3 Nov 1658, d. 8 Aug 1692
Mother*Susanna Shed2 b. 28 Dec 1662
(Daughter) Relationship NoteMitchell's 1840 Bridgewater History speculated that sisters Elizabeth Hooper and Ruth Hooper might have been the sisters of John Hooper. At the time this was likely a logical guess since Ruth and Elizabeth both appeared in Bridgewater as young women and not long after John's purchase of land there. Later research has confirmed to our satisfaction that they were actually the nieces of John Hooper of Bridgewater and the daughters of John's brother William Hooper of Reading who had died a few years before.2,3
Birth*9 March 1691Ruth Hooper was born on 9 March 1691 in Reading, Middlesex County, Massachusetts Bay Colony (New England).2
Marriage*25 January 1709/10She married John Bolton, son of John Bolton and Sarah Chesebrough, on 25 January 1709/10 in Bridgewater, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).4,1,2
Death*17 May 1755She died on 17 May 1755 in Bridgewater at age 64. The Backus record noted that she was the wife of "Ensign" John Bolton.5,6,7,8
Probate*before 27 May 1755According to the Hooper Genealogy source, her estate was probated on 28 July 1755, which was actually the date her husband's estate was opened for probate. His will was written on 27 May 1755 and there was no mention of his wife, who had died 10 days before his will was written.2,9,10
BurialShe and her husband, Ensign John Bolton, died within three weeks of each other and were buried in Mount Prospect Cemetery, Bridgewater.8,11

Marriage*21 March 1799She married Gamaliel Bolton, son of Seth Bolton and Anna Wade, on 21 March 1799 in Raynham, Bristol County, Massachusetts. The marriage was performed by Jonathan Shaw, Justice of the Peace.1
(Mother-Doubtful) Birth7 March 1809It is believed unlikely that Gamaliel Bolton and Sally Hooper were the parents of Jeremiah Bolton who was born on 7 March 1809 in Connecticut. New research on their direct Bolton line has led descendants of Jeremiah Bolton to believe he was more likely the son of one of the Connecticut families of Boltons, or of Massachusetts Boltons who moved to Connecticut. Their research for answers continues.2,3,4,5

(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

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

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
