Briefly, the Hoopers of Deer Island (and St. George, and Back Bay), N.B., Canada are descended from one Richard Hooper who was a Loyalist during the American Revolutionary War along with his sons, William and James, who were all members of the Royal Fencible Americans (RFA). At the end of the war these 3 men were granted land grants in St. George, N.B., Canada. From there they moved to Deer Island, N. B., Canada and acquired land from Captain Farrell.

William Hooper served at the Siege of Fort Cumberland, N.B. in Nov. 1776 under the command of Col. Goreham and is listed on the roster roll for that event.

James was a member of the 6th Connecticut Army and deserted on one day and joined the RFAs on the same day.

We are all searching for the "illusive" Richard Hooper and where he came from. Once the DNA test is completed and the results posted to www.hooperconnections.com perhaps we will have a better idea of this information (projected May 2004).
