George Hooper, in his own words
If he could speak to us today, George Hooper might describe his life as follows.

I was probably a descendant of John Hooper, the Protestant Bishop of Gloucester, who was born in Somersetshire, England, in 1495. Like me, he had a daughter named Rachel. When Mary, the Catholic daughter of Catherine of Aragon, became queen in 1553, she reestablished Catholicism as the state religion. Because John clung tenaciously to his beliefs, she burned him at the stake.
I was living in or near Somersetshire in 1693, which was during the reign of William and Mary who agreed to a Bill of Rights that made it illegal to be a Roman Catholic. I was likely the father of the following children: Susannah, Elizabeth, Hugh, Rachel, and Joan Hooper.
England was always home for me but three grandsons were later in Goochland County, Virginia: Joseph Hooper, William Mayo the famous surveyor and map maker of Barbados and Virginia, and Dr. William Cabell who was the ancestor of the very influential Cabell family of Virginia.
Mr. Alexander Brown wrote a book called The Cabells and Their Kin, which describes my grandson’s remarkable family in a very fine manner. William Cabell’s family includes a vice president, a couple dozen congressmen, and more than 50 state legislators. Four served in the legislature of the Confederate States of America.
