Hopkinson wills

    Such an interesting page. I am in Canada, but my grandfather John Addy was the only sibling of 12 who came to Canada. I have a family tree going back to Approx 1790’s with the marriage of Joseph Hopkinson to Susanna Crosley. They would be my great great great grandfather. You have certainly put a lot of research into your site. The wills are amazing to look at, pretty hard to read. Thanks Susan Hopkinson, Ontario Canada
