The ancestors of the name Hopwould date back to the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the Hopwould family lived in the settlement of Hopwood in the county of Lancashire. The surname Hopwould belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names.

Hopwould Early Origins



The surname Hopwould was first found in Lancashire at Hopwood, a township, in the parish of Middleton, union of Bury, hundred of Salford. "A family of the local name was seated here for many centuries, probably from Saxon times. In 1359, Adam de Hopwood was one of the inquisition at Preston held before Thomas de Seton and others, justices, to determine a dispute between Henry, Duke of Lancaster, and Roger de la Warre. On the death of Dr. Robert Hopwood, in the early part of the eighteenth century, when the family became extinct, the estates passed to the Gregges, who assumed the additional name of Hopwood. Hopwood Hall is an old-fashioned house, pleasing in aspect and agreeable in situation, with tolerably extensive pleasure-grounds, tastefully laid out." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Hopwould or a variant listed above: Edward Hopwood was one of the founders of Salem Massachusetts in 1630; Joe Hopwood settled in Barbados in 1635; Mathew Hopwood settled in Virginia in 1663..
