John Hopkins and Elizabeth Williams were the parents of Mayflower passenger Stephen Hopkins.[1][2]

John married first Agnes Borrow or Borrowe on 28 Oct 1574 at Upper Clatford, Hampshire, England, and had two children, William and Alice. John married secondly Elizabeth WillIams on 28 Jul 1579 at Upper Clatford and had two children, Susanna and Stephen.[3]

John died before 4 Sep 1593 at Winchester, Hampshire.

"John Hopkins, the probable father of Stephen according to Ernest Christensen, died before 4 September, 1593 (revised by Ernie Christensen from first reported date of 10 September) when his inventory was taken apparently in Winchester since they'd moved from Hursley years before according to Caleb Johnson's research."[4]

Research Notes

Removed Stephen Hopkins as John's father. A Rev. Stephen Hopkins did exist but had no relationship to Stephen Hopkins of the Mayflower. John Hopkins was Stephen's father but a brother of John named Nicholas Hopkins married to Mary Poole is invented.

See excellent research:

When and where Nicholas HOPKINS and Mary POOLE got invented,
How a Reverend Stephen Hopkins "from Norfolk" was invented as Nicholas's father, and how they spread.[4]

Removed Stephen Hopkins as John's father. See Research Notes in biography.

Hopkins-476 and Hopkins-3 appear to represent the same person because: If you look at the change history Hopkins-3 originally had the same wife as Hopkins-476.

I think they weren't merged originally because Hopkins-3 was incorrectly named William John instead of just John.

Hopkins-1849 and Hopkins-476 do not represent the same person because: I am not sure about this individual. He doesn't show as a relative of mine. I will probably eliminate him.
Hopkins-1849 and Hopkins-476 appear to represent the same person because: It appears that these are the same individual, since the wife's names are the same. If your information matches this, please approve the merge; otherwise reject an supply a reason. Thank you.
