Mr Thomas Hopper

Thomas Hopper (1776–1856) was an architect active primarily in the early- to mid-19th century, much favoured by King George IV, and particularly notable for his work on country houses across southern England, with occasional forays further afield, into Wales and Ireland (especially Ulster).

He was involved with improvements to the Shire Hall in Monmouth under "Royal assent", where he and Edward Haycock made the building extend down Agincourt Street, creating room for a new staircase and larger courts. Hopper took up residence in Monnow Street in Monmouth whilst this was in progress.[1]

In 1840 he exhibited designs for Butterton Hall in Staffordshire. This gothic building lasted until the First World War when it was demolished due to misuse.[2]
