According to The Kilvert Society, Hopewell Jr. became a Lt. in the South Wales Borderers.
Took over Lordship of the Manor of Moulsford in 1903, intending to reside there... but died young.  To pay for the extravagant improvements her late husband had been making to the estate, Moulsford was then sold off by his widow.  See A Brief History of Moulsford.
Tombstone inscription at Moulsford reads, "In Memory of Hopewell James Shuldham Morrell Lord of the Manor at Moulsford died March 21st A.D. 1906 aged 45 years"
