Damaris Hopkins was the first daughter named Damaris born to Stephen Hopkins and his wife Elizabeth. She was a passenger on the "Mayflower". She was not the same person as the Damaris Hopkins Wiki-ID Hopkins-11. This Damaris died young.


Damaris Hopkins was born in England in 1618/19, the daughter of Stephen Hopkins and Elizabeth (Fisher) Hopkins.[1] The marriage of her parents was recorded in Whitechapel, London, England, so she was perhaps born near there.

Damaris came on the Mayflower with her parents and was alive in the Plymouth Colony, New England, in 1627 but she was probably the daughter reported by Gov. Bradford to have "dyed here."[1]

I don't think that's applicable here, This child died young.

Recommend changing the birth location to just "England" unless someone has a source for Whitechapel or London; Austin and Johnson both just say England.

Hopkins-5548 and Hopkins-7 appear to represent the same person because: ready to merge
posted by Anonymous Vickery
The note says do not merge with Hopkins-7 but it doesn't say why. Stephen Hopkins and Elizabeth Fisher had two daughters named Damaris. The first died in 1627 at the age of 9 (Hopkins-7). A sister was born in 1628 and she was named Damaris too (Hopkins 11).

Hopkins-7 and Hopkins-4403 appear to represent the same person because: Same parents, same dates. Please merge. Thanks.
