Thanks Liz for those references.
Doing some more searches throws up a couple of similar references for Peter
Jope (in Devon Records Office archives):
1756: Peter Jope, Captain of a Company in Col. Roger's Regiment of Foot and
First Builder's Assistant (in HM Yard); Stoke Damerel
1761: Peter Jope, assistant to the master shipwright in HM Yard; Stoke
I think Peter Jope was the father of George Jope who married Samuel
Mansfield's daughter Ann.
According to peerage.com
citing George Edward Cokayne, editor, The Complete
Baronetage, Sir Frederick Rogers was the Commissioner of the Dockyard. I
assume he is the colonel of the regiment mentioned in these references -
interesting, because he was a Captain in the Navy.
I wonder what the regiment was.
