General Northey married a second time, and has children likewise by that marriage. He assumed, by sign manual, 8th May, 1799, the surname and arms of Hopkins upon inheriting the estates of his maternal ancestors.

[ocr errors]

This family, through both lines, Northey and Hopkins,” establishes antiquity and eminence—through both, it has enjoyed for a long series of years parliamentary rank— through both it has served a succession of monarchs—through both acquired civic and military distinction. In the sanguinary wars of York and Lancaster, which for thirty years at least devastated the fair fields of England, and with ruthless impartiality swept away the chief adherents of both houses, the family of Hopkyns is traditionally stated to have taken a prominent part, and to have experienced the inevitable consequences—incarceration, decapitation, and confiscation: to pass, however, from rumour to record, we find soon after the pacification of the kingdom, (22 and 23 Edward IV.) one of its members, William Hopkins, chosen by the men of Coventry to preside over their city, then a place of consideration. This William was the father of three sons, Willi AM, his heir. Richard, sheriff of Coventry in 1554. Nicholas, sheriff of Coventry in 1561.

• The name was originally written Hopkyns— it was so spelt by John Hopkyns, who filled a civic office in the city of Coventry in 1567.

The eldest,

William Hopky Ns, sheriff of Coventry in 1557, and mayor in 1564, had been persecuted for heresy in 1554. He wedded Agnes, daughter of Thomas Riley, mayor of Coventry, and had a son and successor,

Rich ARD Hopky Ns, who had two sons, SAMPson, his heir, and William, proprietor of the lordship of Shortley, 21 JAMEs I. The elder,

SAMPson Hopkyns, mayor of Coventry in 1609, represented that city in parliament in the 12 and 18 JAMEs I. He d. in 1622, leaving by Jane, his wise, three sons and one daughter, viz.

1. Richard (Sir), his heir.

ii. William (Sir).

iii. Sampson, mayor of Coventry in 1640.

i. Anne, m. to M. Babington, esq. of Rothley Temple, in the county of Leicester, and d. in 1648, aged thirty- . three.

He was s. by his elder son, Rich ARD Hoski Ns, esq. who sat in parliament for the city of Coventry in 1660, 1669, 1678, 1689, 1696, and 1698. He m. Mary, dau, of Mr. Alderman Johnson, and sister of Lady Hale, by whom he had a son, Edward, his heir, and a daughter, Mary. Mr. Hopkins was a person of considerable importance in the time of JAMEs II. and from the following facts mentioned by his son, the Right Hon. Edward Hopkins, was an active opponent of the court, and promoter of the revolution. “In the year 1607,” says Edward Hopkins, “whilst the queen was at Bath (the occasion of which jorney thither the year following, gave such a suspicion of indirect practices to the nation, by the birth of the pretender) King JAMEs made a progress through a part of the kingdom, and lay at my father's house, where, the morning after his arrival, public mass was said in the great dining room, where I was present at the late celebration of it, my age screening from any observation in my behaviour by those who attended the service.
