William and Katherine Hopkins lived in Southwark, St. George's Parish, Surrey and raised their family there. William was a gardener and member of the Vintner's Guild and a Quaker. His son Benjamin, also a gardener, Vintner, and Quaker, married Sarah Haddon, daughter of John and Elizabeth (Clarke) Haddon.
1700sEmigration to West Jersey
Benjamin's son Ebenezer was sent to live with his aunt, Elizabeth Haddon, and her husband John Estaugh, in Haddonfield, West Jersey. There he married Sarah Lord, daughter of James and Elizabeth (Clarke) Lord. Ebenezer and Sarah had 7 children, founding a numerous family in New Jersey.

Hezekiah Haddon Hopkins, son of Haddon and grandson of Ebenezer Hopkins, moved his family from Philadelphia to Waynesville, Warren County, Ohio in 1820. From there, their children, including Richard, William Griffith, and Hezekiah Haddon Hopkins, Jr. moved to Pennville, Jay County, Indiana.
