Son of Ralph Anthony Dopping Hepenstal, and his first wife Diana Margaret Dalrympal Dopping Hepenstal.
A kindly landlord, he was remebered fondly by most in Longford, but his tenure did feature evictions.
Said to have invented “electric kettle among other things” (SRC Tottenham family website), he was a prolific inventor of the functional and the comical.
Left Ireland and lived in England after threats by local IRA units and people using the IRA name to threaten him and his family.
