Alfred (1848 - 1910) was the third of eleven children born to his parents John Hepworth & Mary Cookson-Hepworth.
Alfred lived his younger life in England in a hamlet named Blackley. Blackley is located in the Calderdale district in the county of West Yorkshire. His home was named: "Blackley End" due to its location at the end of the Blackley hamlet. The home was on top of a hill, next door to a Blackley Baptist Chapel and overlooking in the distance the Towns of Elland and Hollywell Green. As of 2020 the home still stands.
The "letters" (see below) indicate that in England Alfred was a Policeman or involved with the Police Department.
In 1871 Alfred married Phoebe Armitage who lived nearby. Their ages at that time were 23 and 22 respectively.
Two years later, in 1873, for reasons unknown, they moved/immigrated to America. to the town of Amesbury MA. It was in Amesbury that they had their first child:
Oliver Henry Hepworth ....... (1875 - 1967) - 91 #209021046
A year or two later they then moved to the southern NH town of Derry where they lived the rest of their lives at 25 Birch St. (Possibly lived in Haverhill area before moving to Derry). It was in Derry that they had two additional children:
John Herbert Hepworth ....... (1877 - 1939) - 62 #156380141
Mary Belle Hepworth ........... (1884 - 1974) - 90 #211144120

Alfred was sorely missed by his family and siblings back in England. This was evidenced by the 11 handwritten "letters" he received from England from 1873-1892. These letters were subsequently passed down from generation to generation and are currently in the possession of this author.
The letters indicate that Alfred and his family made at least two trips back to England during their younger years.
It was learnt that Alfred built several homes in Derry - notably in the Birch Street area. In 2020 one of those houses still stands.
Alfred lived in Derry 37 years (1873 - 1910) before passing away in 1910 at the age of 62. He is buried with his wife Phoebe at the Forest Hill Cemetery in Derry along with 2 of his 3 children (Oliver Henry and John Herbert). His daughter Mabel is buried in a separate gravesite not far from Alfreds.
Not much information was passed down about Alfreds life/activities in Derry, other than he was a home builder and built several homes on Birch Street.
He was a shoemaker and sold an installed stoves. He built a home for jos son Oliver (Lucy) at 17 Pleasant St. He also built a home for his daughter Mabel (Walter) at 18 Pleasant St.
Again ... Alfred and Phoebe are best known for bringing the Hepworth name from England to the Town of Derry. As of 2020 their marriage has resulted in 110+ offspring with Hepworth blood (Approximately 90 living and 20 deceased).
