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. 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."
