    • Alternate death: Abt 1677

    Notes:

    Arrived 1623 on the Anne. First at Plymouth, then at Eastham. He was a carpenter.

    In 2013, Caleb Johnson ("Nicholas Snow: Not from St. Leonard Shoreditch, London", The Mayflower Descendant 62:39) established that, contrary to the suggestions of several authorities included Robert Charles Anderson, this Nicholas Snow could not have been the Nicholas Snow baptized at St. Leonard's Shoreditch, London, 25 Jan 1600, son of another Nicholas Snow, because that Nicholas Snow was buried three days after being baptized. Some circumstantial evidence suggests that our Nicholas Snow may have been a descendant of the Snow family of Hursley, Hampshire, where his wife and the other children of Mayflower passenger Stephen Hopkins were baptized, but nothing has been proven.

    Nicholas married Constance Hopkins before 22 May 1627 in Plymouth, Plymouth, Massachusetts. Constance (daughter of Stephen Hopkins and Mary Kent alias Back) was born before 11 May 1606; died in Oct 1677 in Eastham, Barnstable, Massachusetts. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

  1. 14.  Stephen Hopkins was born on 30 Apr 1581 in Upper Clatford, Hampshire, England (son of John Hopkins and Elizabeth Williams); died between 6 Jun 1644 and 17 Jul 1644 in Plymouth, Plymouth, Massachusetts.

    • Baptised: 30 Apr 1581, Upper Clatford, Hampshire, England
    • Alternate death: Aft 6 Jun 1644, Plymouth, Plymouth, Massachusetts

    Notes:

    Emigrated 1620, on the Mayflower, with his second wife Elizabeth Fisher and his children Elizabeth, Constance, and Giles. He was a tanner, merchant, and tavern-keeper.

    Notable as the only Mayflower passenger to have previously visited the New World, as it now appears that he was the same Stephen Hopkins that served as the minister's clerk on the 1609 voyage to Jamestown of the Sea Venture. This ship was caught in a storm and ran aground at Bermuda, marooning its passengers. Sir Thomas Gates, who had been travelling to Jamestown as its newly-appointed governor, organized the passengers to build new boats to complete the voyage. Hopkins vocally dissented against Gates's authority, and was charged with mutiny and sentenced to death, but ultimately pardoned after many other passengers pled for clemency toward him. The boat-building project was successful and the passengers of the Sea Venture ultimately made it to Jamestown, from whence Hopkins ultimately returned to England in 1614. A written narrative of the Sea Venture's story was in circulation in England by late 1610 and is known to have been read by Shakespeare, whose The Tempest, first performed in November 1611, concerns a group of passengers shipwrecked by a storm, and includes a comic-relief drunk named Stefano who attempts to take over as their leader.
