Hi, your site is very informative with some very nice pictures etc.
I was born in Bodmin (St Nicholas Street) back in 1945, when doors could be left open etc.. My mother is a Roberts and was born in Belowda (Belovely as it was known) Roche. As you can see by my surname my male ancestors are from Scotland.
At the moment I'm researching the "Roberts" side of my family and trying to find out any information regarding the name Hooper.
John Thomas Hooper b abt 1883, Altarnun, Baptised 12 Oct 1883 St Neots. John married Charlotte Jane Smith in 1907, poss at St Neots.
The 1891 Census shows John Thomas living at Lords Waste with his parents John and Louise Hooper and siblings.
The 1911 Census shows John Thomas as married (to Charlotte) and living at Lords Waste, Four Hole Cross, St Neots with two of their children Violet Evelyn and Alice Hooper.
Violet Evelyn went on to marry John Charle Roberts.
My Questions are, does anyone know of any Hoopers still living in St Neots.. Are there any headstones in the churchyard regarding any Hoopers and could someone either photo them and email me or just email me the inscription.. I know of the two children Violet and Alice however I'm trying to find out if John and Charlotte had anymore children.
Many thanks in advance
