Stephen Hopkins

Stephen Hopkins [i], possibly the son of John Hopkins  of the city of Winchester , b. ca. 1578, probably Hampshire , England ; d. bet. 6 Jun – 17 Jul 1644, Plymouth, Plymouth Co., Massachusetts; m 1st bef. 13 May 1604, probably Hampshire, England to Mary Unknown , d. estate inventoried 10 May 1613, Hursley, Hampshire, England; bur. 9 May 1613, Hursley, Hampshire, England; m 2nd 19 Feb 1617/168, St. Mary Matfellon, Whitechapel, Middlesex, England to Elizabeth Fisher .

Stephen Hopkins  while best known for his passage on the Mayflower in 1620 was quite the rabble-rouser.  He headed a mutiny not once but twice while shipwrecked in 1609 on the Island of Bermuda .  While in England he was a tanner/leathermaker and became a merchant and planter upon coming to Plymouth .

Voyage of the Sea Venture - 1609

The voyage of the Sea Venture in 1609 [headed for Jamestown , Virginia ], turned into quite an adventure.  The ship was wrecked by a hurricane in the “Isle of Devils” [the Bermudas] the one hundred and fifty castaways were able to survive for ten months on the island’s abundant sea turtles, flightless birds, shellfish and wild hogs.  It was after about six months, when Stephen Hopkins  began to challenge the authority of the governor, and even went as far as to organize a mutiny.  For his part in the mutiny – Stephen was sentenced to death.  But he begged and moaned about the ruin of his wife and children, and so was pardoned out of sympathy.  One of the passengers of the Sea Venture, William Strachey  chronicled the event as follows [emphasis added]:

“…therein did one Stephen Hopkins  commence the first act or overture [of mutiny]:… A fellow who had much knowledge of Scriptures, and could reasons well therein, whom our Minister therefore chose to be his Clarke, to reade the Psalmes, and Chapters on Sondays…it pleased the Governour to let this his factious offence to have a publique affront, and contestation by these two witnesses before the whole Company, who [at the toling of a Bell] assemble before a Corps due guard, where the Prisoner was brought forth in manacles, and both accused, and suffered to make at large to every particular, his answer: which onely full of sorrow and teares, pleading simplicity, and denial.  But hee being onely found, at this time, both the Captaine, and the follower of this Mutinie, and generally helf worthy to satisfie the punishment of his offence, with the sacrifice of his life, our Governour passé the sentence of a Martiall Court upon him, such as belongs to Mutinie and Rebellion.  But so penitent hee was, and made so much moane, alleadging the ruine of his Wife and Children in this his trespasse, as it wrought in the hearts of all the better sorts of the Company, who therefore with humble intreaties, and earnest supplications, went unto our Governor, whom they besought…and never left him until we had got his pardon.”

Following this turn of events the castaways eventually were able to manage to work together to complete construction of two of the ships, which they used to escape the island and sail to Jamestown , Virginia the next year. [1610/1611] After spending several years in Jamestown , Hopkins returned to England sometime between 1613 and 1617.

A Discovery of the Barmudas, Otherwise called the Ile of Divels, by Sylvester jourdain.  He was shipwrecked with the Sea-Venture in 1609, and it is his account of the incident that is believed to be one of the sources of William Shakespeare ’s play “The Tempest”.

It is interesting to note here that the account of the voyage fell into the hands of William Shakespeare  and that is became partly responsible for inspiring his play The Tempest [first performed in November 1611].  The Tempest relates the story of the shipwrecked group stranded on an enchanted island.  A side plot includes a drunken and mutinous butler, whom Shakespeare named Stephano.

William toot ,

Richard Woole ,

He immigrated to Plymouth in Nov 1620 aboard the Mayflower[ii].  Stephen Hopkins  brought with him on the Mayflower his wife Elizabeth , children Giles and Constance by his first wife , and Damaris by his second marriage.  A son Oceanus was born while the Mayflower was at sea.

Stephen participated in the early exploration missions and was an “ambassador” along with Myles Standish  for early Indian relations[iii]

Stephen Hopkins  is mentioned in a letter written by William Bradford  an Isaac Allerton  on 8 Sept 1623, which was found in uncalendared papers at the Public Records Office in London .  The letter was presented as evidence for the defense in the 1624 court case Stevens andFell vs. the Little James.  The letter is published in American Historical Review, 8 (1903):294-301.  The short section about Stephen Hopkins reads as follows (spelling has been modernized):

About Hopkins and his men we were come to this issue.  The men we retain in the general according to his resignation and equity of the thing.  And about that reckoning of 20 odd pounds, we have brought it to this pass, he is to have –6-“-payed by you there, and the rest to be quit; it is for nails and such other things as we have had of his brother here for the companies use, and upon promise of payment by us , we desire you will accordingly do it.

Another little-known reference to Stephen Hopkins , which also alludes to his two servants [ Edward Doty  and Edward Leister ], is found in the Minutes for the Council of New England, on 5 May 1623[iv]

Touching the difference between Mr. Hopkins  and Mr. Peirce , Mr. Hopkins alleadgeth that hee hath paid to Mr. Peirce for Transportation of himselfe and two persons more, and Likewise for his goods, wch Peirce acknowledgeth, but alleadgeth, that by reason of his unfortunate returne, the rest of the passengers that went up on the Like Condiditons have been contented to allow unto 40s a person toward his Loss, and therefore desireth that Master Hopkyns  may doe the like, which Mr. Hopkins at length agreed unto, soe as Mr. Peirce and his Associates will accept of £6 for 3 passengers out of £20 his Adventure wch he hath in their Joynt Stock.  And therefore they both pray that the Councell will bee pleased to write to the Associates to accept thereof, which they are pleased to doe.

Criminal History of Stephen Hopkins

1607:  Mutiny on Sea Venture, bound for Virginia .  Sentenced to death, but sentence commuted on behalf of his wife and children.

However this in no way indicated he was disloyal to the Colony – in fact he was the Assistant Governor from 1633 until 1636, and he volunteered to fight in the Pequot War of 1637

1623, they are in Plymouth , Plymouth co., MA shown with six acres (which would indicate five people in his household – Stephen should have an extra share.
