Roper - Family Connections

The Roper family has extremely long connections with our Parish and this has led to a number of bits of research and some enquiries about connections that span the globe!


Family researcher, Lori Stevens from America, has found links back to John Roper (1453 - 1524) - see her lineage below. Lori asked a very relevant question - what happened to the portraiture for this family? We are fairly sure that any surviving portraits would have been "dispersed" at or before the sale of the estate in September 1919.
If you know the location of any portraits of this (or other) family, please contact us.
