Elizabeth Hopkins was probably born in Plymouth. Her custody was given on 30 Nov. 1644, after death of her father and when she was still a child, to Richard Sparrow, who was to keep her "as his own child until the tyme of her marriage or untill shee be nineteene yeares of age'. Capt. Myles Standish brought an action against Sparrow on her behalf for breach of contract 5 Oct. 1656. She was a witness in a slander action in 1651/2. Most likely she died unmarried after October of 1657 and perhaps before 29 Sept. 1659,[1] the latter being the date of valuation of her cattle by John Freeman and Edward Bangs. However, an agreement of 5 Oct. 1659 by Andrew Ring, Jacob Cooke and Giles Hopkins as to Elizabeth's property was contingent upon `that incase Elizabeth hopkins Doe Come Noe more,' indicating that she had then disappeared and that her relatives thought that she was probably dead.[1]

Her inventory from Jacob Cooke's house and Andrew Ring's house dated 6 October 1659 and "some things remaining in Gile Hopkins house with a small matter in Mrs. Standish' hand."[1]
