FAMILY HISTORY

(c) John Hooper (1805-1892) was born in Horsington, England. he was christened on the 23rd July 1805. John married Jane Anne Thomas in 1825. This marriage produced five children. The eldest son, Robert was born in 1829 and died at the age of three and another child born in 1837 was then named Robert. Following the death of wife Jane in 1838, John married a second time to Caroline Wadman. John and caroline departed England on the 'Arab' with their son William Wadman Hooper and four children from John's first marriage to Jane. One of the four children, sarah, died on the voyage aged 14 and Caroline gave birth to a daughter who they named Elizabeth. Sadly baby Elizabeth died at sea. Upon arriving in New Zealand John and Croline settled in Te Marua and raised their extended family there. John was to have a total of 17 children but they did not all survive into adulthood. Following the death of her husband Caroline moved to Sanson and died on the 16th June 1903. Both John and caroline are burried in the little churchyard of the Christ Church at Taita.

(d) Eliza Hooper (1832-1912) is said to have lead a 'colourful' life. As the eldest daughter of a large family her home duties would have been hectic. She would have been required to care for her younger siblings and attend to the many household chores that had to be done to feed and clothe all her brothers and sisters.  When Eliza married George Whiteman in 1849 her step mother, Caroline, was having babies.  George was from the very prominent 'Whiteman' family. Whiteman's Valley in the Hutt District was named after his family.  George and Eliza had several children before Eliza left him for Stephen Avery and they too had children from their relationship. George & Eliza's son, John, is said to have held some degree of resentment towards his mother for her 'abandonment' of her husband and family. It was John Whiteman's wife, Eliza, who convinced him she was 'after all his mother' and she was permitted to stay with them for a time but she eventually left her sons home and died in Ashburton, New Zealand.

(d) Caroline Hooper (1834-1875) married Henry Thomas Ashton in 1860. Henry was born in 1834 to parents Thomas Daniel Ashton and Mary Hazel Campbell (information provided by Frances Ashton wife of William James Ashton).

(d) Selina Ann (Annie) Hooper (1847-1918) was born on the 17th May 1847 in the lower North Island Hutt area of Wellington. On the 15th December 1864 she married William John Hirst at Taita, Lower Hutt, New Zealand. Selina died on the 12th of Decmeber 1918 in Fielding, New Zealand and was buried on the 15th Decemer 1918 in Sanson, New Zealand.

The Hooper & Hirst families were neighbors and a number of marriages took place within the close circle of the two families. Apart from Selina's marriage to William Hirst two of her siblings also married into the Hirst family. Elizabeth Wadman Hooper (1849) married George Henry Hirst and William Wadman Hooper (1839) married Susannah (Susan) Hirst.

(e) Ellen Matilda Hooper (1881-1959) married Alfred Larkin on the 20th April 1908. Alfred was born on the 15th May 1878 to parents John & Sarah Larkin. John's mother and father are both said to have been born in Ireland in 1854. Alfred is buried in the RSA section of the Tokamaru Cemetery on the East Coast of the North Island of New Zealand.
