     THE PASSING OF A LANDMARK
     The Old Hoopes Mansion in Westtown Township - Some Historical Facts and Reminiscences
Old “Brooznoll” the home of the Hoopes family for so many generations, being now likely to change hands, is a well-known landmark, near Westtown School, on the Street Road, from Philadelphia to Baltimore. A correspondent writes: Past this house the old stage coaches passed on their trip to and fro from Philadelphia to Baltimore. Past this house a mortally wounded soldier rode, vainly trying to reach home before death should overtake him after the Battle of BrandyIwine.A boxwood, still owned by this family was used as a hiding place for the family silver, from the British, and the old mansion contains a secret room. This Family is one of the oldest in Pennsylvania. Joshua Hoopes and Isabele, his wife, came from Cleveland, Yorkshire, in England, on the ship Providence of Scarborough, owned by Robert Hoopes, in the year 1693, and made their home in Pennsylvania, (and an old deed from William Penn, is in possession of the family). His son, Daniel, married Jane Worrilow in 1696. He called their place of residence “Brooznoll”, said to be the name of the home in England. This house was built in 1721, with dressed stone front and upstairs porch, the prevalent fashion at that time and is a roomy old mansion and still in fair condition, although to-day used as a farm house.On the marriage of his two sons, Caleb and Ezra, this large tract of land was divided. Caleb retaining the old homestead. These two brothers married two sisters Susan and Rebecca (third sister Mary married Hill Pennell) daughters of Nathan Atherton of Philadelphia, who proudly traced his ancestry from England’s titled aristocracy. He was a 1818 Philadelphia City Commissioner and ??? a Mayor???? of Philadelphia during the yellow fever epidemic (Yellow fever epidemics hit Philadelphia in 1793, 1794, and 1797 before the girls were born and don't see him listed as a Philadelphia mayor ???? Yellow fever reappeared in subsequent years, all the way to 1830, and sometimes with equal ferocity but never bringing quite the same civic crisis) and with Stephen Girard, helped to cheer the last hours of many a dying person. Hoping to save his daughters from this dreadful plague, they were sent to the country where they met and married the two Hoopes brothers. This family prize, and old clock (grandfather style) was given by Nathan Atherton to his daughter, Susan, after her marriage with the young merchant, Caleb Hoopes. It is said this clock once possessed an ivory case, tells the changes of moon and planets, etc. MISSING of land, now a part of West Chester, and owned by a daughter, Anna Mary H. Warrington.
Caleb had one son, Ellwood, who married in 1856, Minerva Barnard, daughter of Eusebius Barnard, near Kennett Square, a learned and intelligent man of his time, and a descendant of one of France’s oldest and noblest families. Ellwood built the new residence on the hill, known as Terrace Home, in 1875.
