Isobel HOPPAR ( - )

1. Isobel HOPPAR married John MURRAY.


John Murray was killed at Flodden, and his son Andrew was served as his heir in Over Menzion on 13th February, 1513-4. But the lands were life-rented by John Murray's widow, Isobel Hoppar, who married as her second husband Archibald Douglas of Kilspindie, uncle of Archibald, Earl of Angus. This liferent she forfeited owing to the political activities of the Earl, and on 8th February, 1532-3 a royal gift of the rents of Over Menzion was made to Malcolm, third Lord Fleming. The lands themselves were redeemed in 1535 by Lord Fleming from Andrew Murray by a payment of 360 merks, and Over Menzion was included in a charter of confirmation of his properties granted by King James V. on 9th April, 1538.

The Fleming family retained their title until 1636, when John (Fleming), second Earl of Wigtown, conveyed Over Menzion to Sir David Murray of Stanhope, who on 17th March, 1645, got a Crown charter incorporating the lands into the barony of Stanhope-Murray.
