The series holds records of the family of John and Alice (Garthorn) Jopling of Hamilton township, Northumberland County, and formerly of Durham, England. Robert Hume married their daughter Charlotte Jopling in 1846 and after her death in 1855 married her sister Alice Jopling in about 1858. The most interesting item in the series is a recipe book belonging to Sarah, Charlotte or Alice Jopling, which was originally the copy book of their mother dating from 1796, but was later used to record recipes for making jams, broths and soups, pickling vegetables, boiling different types of meat, roasting turkeys, preparing "pigeons transmogrified", woodcocks and snipes, partridge pie, "a good common cake", Portugal cakes, little plum cakes, raspberry wine and brandy, birch wine, and other desserts and dishes, ca. 1820-1860. In addition, there is some correspondence and land records relating to John Jopling's farm in Hamilton township and letters to Charlotte Jopling and Alice Jopling.
