Overview and metadata sections

John Haddon (1654-1724) was a blacksmith and anchor maker in London, England. He was a Quaker, and was twice fined for publicly voicing his religious views. At the persuasion of William Penn, Haddon purchased hundreds of acres of land in New Jersey, land which is part of the ancestral home of the Lenape, and was then appointed officer of both the Pennsylvania Land Company and the London Lead Company. Ultimately, Haddon never left England. Elizabeth Haddon Estaugh (1680-1762), John Haddon's daughter, established Haddonfield, New Jersey, on the land purchased by her father. Elizabeth Haddon Estaugh left England in 1701, and married John Estaugh (d. 1742), a young Quaker preacher, in 1702. She and her husband had no children of their own, but were close with Elizabeth's nephew, Ebenezer Hopkins, who lived with them. Ebenezer's children, primarily John Estaugh Hopkins, received the majority of Elizabeth Haddon Estaugh's estate.

John Estaugh Hopkins (1738-1806) was the son of Ebenezer Hopkins and Sarah (Lord) Hopkins. He was the principal heir of Elizabeth Haddon Estaugh. He married Sarah Mickle (d. 1812) in 1762; they had seven children, two of which died in infancy. In 1779, John Estaugh Hopkins built the house now standing at 65 Haddon Avenue, Haddonfield, New Jersey, and resided there until his death. He gave the family's large house, which was built by Elizabeth Haddon Estaugh, to his eldest son, James (1763-1826), who married Rebecca Clement (ca. 1764-1805). Hannah Hopkins (1764-1838), eldest daughter of John Estaugh Hopkins and Sarah (Mickle) Hopkins, remained in this house until her death.

Beulah Hopkins Nicholson (1791-1863) bought the house after the death of Hannah Hopkins, who was her aunt. Beulah Hopkins was married to Samuel Nicholson (1793-1885). She was his second wife. His first wife, and mother of his children, was Rebecca Hopkins, daughter of William E. Hopkins, who was the second son of John Estaugh Hopkins. Sarah Nicholson (1837-1925), the step-daughter of Beulah Hopkins Nicholson, inherited the house and its contents after her father's death, by the will of her stepmother.
