I found this little item about some early Hopton's that maybe someone could use. Glynn County is in GA.

“Georgia Genealogical Magazine”
p. 545 From the Glynn CountyDeed Records Bk G/340
"Nathaniel Russell of Charleston, S.C., Trustee and Attorney for John Hopton, merchant, of London, to John Coupe of Glynn Co. Deed dated March 7, 1816, conveying 2000 acres in former St. David’s Parish now Glynn Co., bounded East by David Deas, west by Arthur Middleton, north by Altamaha River, same being owned by William Hopton of Charleston at his death, testate. By the will of said William Hopton he devised his property to his wife Sarah Hopton and other legatees therein named; and thereafter a division was had between them Dec. 21, 1786, whereby said land fell to said widow as shown by records in office of Secretary of State of S. C. at Charleston and said widow Sarah on July 31, 1788, deeded said land to said Nathaniel Russell in trust for her son the said John Hopton to which deed Mary C. Hopton and Sarah Russell (nee Hopton) assented in writing, they being the younger legatees named in said will."
