The Hapgood families of Lymington

The town of Lymington in Hampshire was home to several generations of Hapgood families between the end of the eighteenth century and the middle of the twentieth. The first record of the name in Lymington is the marriage of James and Ann Hapgood in 1791. They had a large family from whom many current Hapgood families in Britain and Australia are descended. Their last Hapgood descendant to live in Lymington was their grandson, Edward Hapgood, who died in 1950. They played an active role in local business life with involvement in transport services and a fruiterer's shop.

There were also several other Hapgood families in Lymington during this period - but no known relationship to the family of James and Ann:
