About George Hooper

George Hooper (1640–1727) was a High Church clergyman in the Church of England, who wielded a great deal of influence in the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. He studied at Christ Church, Oxford, earning several degrees between 1657 and 1677—culminating in his DD in 1677. He also tutored and held various posts as a clergyman. In 1677, he became royal chaplain to Princess Mary and the Prince of Orange in Holland, and he held other prestigious chaplaincies until he was appointed bishop of St. Asaph in 1702. Soon after, he was offered the see of Bath and Wells, a position he held from 1704 until his death in 1727.
