George Hooper of Rotherhithe

???? - 1804


London merchant, and mortgagee of 'slave-property' in St Vincent, where he assumed a mortgage of £5000 and was granted possession of the Camden Park and Ladoux estates of Charles Payne Sharpe in 1770. In the deed he was identified as of Rotherhithe, merchant.

  1. The will of George Hooper of Greenwich proved 02/01/1805 is almost certainly the same man. In the will he refers to his property in St Mary Rotherhithe, but is silent on mortgages in the West Indies or 'slave-property'.
