We have added a new volume to the searchable database of authenticated Mayflower Pilgrim genealogies, Mayflower Families Fifth Generation Descendants, 1700-1880:
- Hopkins, Stephen (Vol. 6)
This database is being constructed from the General Society of Mayflower Descendants (GSMD) very well-known series of books Mayflower Families Through Five Generations: Descendants of the Pilgrims who landed at Plymouth, Mass., December 1620 which document the first generation of descendants of the Pilgrims. Through our partnership with GSMD, American Ancestors is delivering this database with a full index of the fifth-generation descendants, and their children, coupled with the page images for those people.
Stephen Hopkins served as a minister’s clerk on Venture, which was marooned on Bermuda in 1609 during a hurricane. He fomented a mutiny amongst the 150 survivors, but was granted a pardon due to his penitence and alleged ruin to wife and family. Hopkins sailed on Mayflower with his pregnant second wife Elizabeth Fisher, three children, and servants Edward Doty and Edward Lester. During the voyage, Elizabeth delivered a son who was named Oceanus. The whole family survived the first winter, and Stephen and Elizabeth lived in Plymouth for 20 years.
This database index includes birth, baptism, marriage, death, and deed records for these individuals, and where available, the names of parents and spouses.
This update is made possible by the invaluable efforts of our team of volunteers, including; Diane Arbuckle, Jeanne Brown, Julie Nathanson, Margaret Parker, Marie Wells, and David Anderson. We appreciate the work of all our volunteers. If you would like to join the team please contact Bianca Renzoni, Database Services Volunteer Coordinator firstname.lastname@example.org.
