    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.
