The date of his marriage does not appear; but he was married before 1627, as by the record of the division of the cattle, May 22nd, he and his wife Constance received their share, they belonging to Mr. Stephen Hopkins' company, which was composed of thirteen persons. In 1633 he was a freeman and a tax payer in Plymouth....

  1. 14.  Stephen HOPKINS was born Abt 1580, England; died Between 06 Jun and 17 Jul 1644.


    According the "the Mayflower Increasing": Stephen was married first in 1605. The name of his first wife is unknown. It is possible that it was Constance Dudley since his first child from his first wife was named Constance.

    Stephen Hopkins, born in England, came over in the Mayflower in 1620, bringing with him Giles and Constanta (Constance), children by a first wife whose name is not know, a second wife Elizabeth whose maiden name is not known, two children by her, Damaris and Oceanus (born on the passage), and two servants, Edward Doty and Edward Litster. he d. between June 6, 1644 (date of his will), and July 17, 1644 (date of his inventory). His 2d wife d. in Plymouth between 1640 and 1644....

    His bringing two servants shows that he was one of the well-to-do of the pilgrims. The facts hereinafter given from contemporary records will show that he was a man of energy, courage and ability and one of the most prominent and useful men in the colony. he was one of the earliest freemen of Plymouth and was one of the assistants to the governor from 1633 to 1637. He was engaged in trade, selling liquors and various other articles. he was charged at times with abuse of his traffic in liquors and with selling liquors and other articles at excessive rates, according to the views of the period, but he never lost the confidence of the leading men. he was not without kindness of heart, as appears from his petitioning for the release of his servants from cruel punishment.

    He apparently boarded the Mayflower in London with his family about the end of June, 1620, for on the arrival of the Speedwell at Southampton from Holland about July 2 she found the Mayflower there, having arrived with her passengers from London. They sailed from Southampton August 5, but by reason of the claimed unsafety of the Speedwell, they put into Dartmouth. After some repairs, they put to sea again, but after they had got "above 100 leagues without the Lands End:, the master of the Speedwell complained that his ship was very leaky, and after consultation, both ships put into Plymouth. Here it was decided that the Speedwell should not proceed. Some of the passengers returned to London, and the rest sailed on the Mayflower on the 6th of September, reaching what is now Provincetown harbor on the 11th of November. On that day he signed the compact of government on board the Mayflower, his name being 14th on the list of signers.
