      Hi Lisa

      I don't have Hopkins ancestors, but I was interested in anyone with the
      surname Graham.

      Best wishes

      Hi Merlynn,

      Not sure if you are still investigating this - I see that you posted this a
      few years ago!

      My surname is Hopkins and I am from St Helena, and I can confirm that there
      are definitely Hopkins's still living there. There is actually just one
      family of Hopkins - which makes the research slightly easier on the island -
      so from that I believe we may be related! I believe the gg grandfather's
      name was William Hopkins - and we did think he was Welsh - so it would be
      good to confirm that as well as confirm when he arrived on the Island etc.

      I did some research when I was on St Helena recently and I did find the
      baptism record for Phoebe Isabella Hopkins - who I believe is a sister of my
      great grandmother - Christina Maude Hopkins - but I don't have any further
      info on her as I only had time to look up my great grandmother.

      Anyway - I shall leave it there - and hopefully you will get in touch and we
      can share some further information.
