Looking for information on Richard Hopcraft, who married Ann Chester. Richard may have come from Arncott and was possibly born around the 1790-early 1800's. Had a son William, born in Boarstall who married Mary Holtam (or Holtham). William and Mary emigrated to Australia in the 1850's, Were there other children? Any assistance would be much appreciated.
