Passing of Stephen Hopwood, Jamaica, mid-2012

Postby bimjim » Thu Oct 18, 2012 7:58 pm

Brett Ashmeade-Hawkins advises that he was very shocked to hear of the death of one of our users, Stephen Hopwood, who actually passed away in Florida a few months ago.

Stephen, who was a member of the well-known Hopwood family who owned Bengal and Lilyfield Estates in St. Ann and Belvedere Estate in St. Thomas, was an old-fashioned Jamaican Gentleman of great charm and impeccable manners. He spent the happiest part of his childhood growing up at Lilyfield Great House in St. Ann, of which he had many fond memories.

Stephen was a great Collector of Jamaican Colonial Art and Antiques. He was very knowledgeable about Jamaican History and was always willing to share what he knew.

He will most definitely be missed. I would like to share with Brett in extening my sincere and belated condolonces to his family.
