Notes for Francis Cooke:
"There is conflicting evidence about the birth of Francis Cooke. A note scribbled in Bradford's Journal says Francis Cooke died above the age of 80, meaning he was born before 1583. However, in August 1643, he was in a list of men of Plymouth between the age of 16 and 60 allowed to bear arms. This means he was born after 1583. Also, he was married in Leyden in 1603, so he probably would have been at least 21 at the time. This means a birth before 1583. The fact that all these records seem to conflict suggests that Francis Cook was probably born in 1583. "
He had been living in Holland about eight years prior to the coming of the rest of the Pilgrims. On the 25 April 1603, he is described in Dutch records as a "woolcomber." From 1603 till the Pilgrims arrived in Leyden, Francis and Hester were members of the French Walloon church. In 1606 they left for a trip to Norwich, England. They returned in 1607 to have their son baptized, In 1608 they rejoined communion with the Walloon Church in Leyden. Sometime between 1611 and 1618, they began communion with the Pilgrims' Separatist church in Leyden. In 1620, Francis and his son John went to America the "Mayflower," leaving his wife and younger children to come after the colony was established.
"William Bradford recorded his list of passengers that came over in the Mayflower: "Francis Cooke and his son John, but his wife and other children came afterwards". Later in 1651, he writes "Francis Cooke is still living, a very old man, and hath seen his children's children have children. After his wife came over with other of his children; he hath three still living by her, all married and have five children, so their increase is eight. And his son John which came over with him is married, and hath four children living."

Notes for Stephen Hopkins:
Stephen Hopkins arrived in America in 1620 on the Mayflower. He was the fourteenth signer of the Mayflower Compact.
The following information is extracted from Caleb Johnson's Web Page:
"The Mayflower Quarterly has published a number of factually baseless articles on Stephen Hopkins' genealogy, most recently in the November 1997 and August 1998 issues. These articles should not be used by anyone concerned about genealogical accuracy;
they were briefly corrected in the November 1998 issue, page 350-351 and 353. Additionally, there is a highly erroneous biography published by Margaret Hodges, titled Hopkins of the Mayflower: Portrait of a Dissenter. The genealogical information in these works are flat out wrong, and easily proven so with primary source documentation.
"Stephen Hopkins was not from Wortley, Wotton-under-Edge, Gloucestershire, as has been previously published in numerous books and articles, and the claim he married a woman named Constance Dudley is complete fiction."
"The baptism records of Stephen Hopkins' children Giles and Constance, as well as an additional child Elizabeth, were discovered in the parish registers of Hursley, Hampshire, England." The Hursley parish register for 1606 showing Constance Hopkins' baptism in the original records says: "undecimo de May, Constancia filia Steph. Hopkins fuit baptizata", which translates into English as "Eleventh day of May, Constance daughter of Steph. Hopkins was baptized."
"And there in Hursley, on 9 May 1613, Mary Hopkins the wife of Stephen was buried. Mary's children Giles, Constance, and Elizabeth are all named in her probate estate papers dated 10 May 1613 and on file at the Hampshire Records Office (file: 1613AD/046).
"The claim Stephen had a son William is based on Wotton-under-Edge records, and is invalid since that Hopkins family had no connection with the Mayflower. The claim that Stephen Hopkins of the Mayflower had a son Stephen baptized at St. Stephen Coleman Street, London on 22 December 1609 is also wrong--no such baptism record exists. This baptism is apparently an error for a real baptism which is found on 3 December 1609 at the parish of St. Katherine Coleman, London. This child died on 19 February 1609/10, and the father had another child named John Hopkins, baptized on 14 April 1611. Since Stephen Hopkins the Mayflower passenger was in Virginia at the time this child was conceived and later baptized, he could not have fathered it. The name Stephen Hopkins is quite common--there are at least five of them in London during this time period. This is just another man named Stephen Hopkins, and there is no connection with the Mayflower passenger of the same name. "
"Stephen Hopkins was one of only a few passengers on the Mayflower to have made a prior trip to America. He came in 1609 on the "Sea Venture," headed for Jamestown, Virginia. But instead, they were marooned on an island following a hurricane, and the 150 passengers were stranded for nine months. Hopkins led an uprising, challenging the governor's authority, and was sentenced to
death. But he begged and moaned about the ruin of his wife and children, and so was pardoned out of sympathy.
The company eventually managed to build a ship, and escaped the island. After spending several years in Jamestown, Hopkins returned to England sometime between 1613 and 1617.
"Stephen Hopkins brought with him on the Mayflower his wife Elizabeth, children Giles and Constance by his first marriage, and Damaris by his second marriage. A son Oceanus was born while the Mayflower was at sea. Stephen participated in the early exploring missions and was an "ambassador" along with Myles Standish for early Indian relations."
"Another little-known reference to Stephen Hopkins, which also alludes to his two servants (Edward Doty and Edward Leister), is found in the Minutes for the Council of New England, on 5 May 1623 (reprinted from Proceedings of the American Antiquarian Society, April 1867, pp. 93-94): "Touching the difference between Mr. Hopkins and Mr. Peirce, Mr. Hopkins alleadgeth that hee hath paid to Mr Peirce for Transportation of himselfe and two persons more, and Likewise for his goods, wch Peirce acknowledgeth, but alleadgeth, that by reason of his unfortunate returne, the rest of the passengers that went upon the Like Conditions have been contented to allow unto 40s a person towards his Loss, and therefore desireth that Master Hopkyns may doe the like, which Mr. Hopkins at length agreed unto, soe as Mr. Peirce and his Associates will accept of 6 for 3 passengers out of 20 his Adventure wch he hath in their Joynt Stock. And therefore they both pray that the Councell will bee pleased to write to the Associates to accept thereof, which they are pleased to doe."
"In 1636, Hopkins was fined for the battery of John Tisdale, in 1637 he was found guilty of allowing men to drink on a Sunday at his house, and in 1638 he was fined for not dealing fairly with an apprentice-girl, Dorothy Temple. He was also charged with several other minor crimes, including selling glass at too high a price, selling illegal intoxicants, and allowing men to get drunk at his house. However, this in no way indicated he was disloyal to the Colony -- in fact he was Assistant governor from 1633 until 1636, and he volunteered to fight in the Pequot War of 1637. "

Wiliam Strachey gives an account of Stephen Hopkins in his book, "Purchas His Pilgrims," vol. iv., pg. 1734, ed. 1625, in the section entitled, "The Most Dreadful Tempest." He states that the "Sea Adventure," was wrecked near Bermuda on 28 July 1609. He said the minister appointed Stephen Hopkins as the "Clarke," to read the Psalms and Scriptures on Sundays. He said Stephen was, "A fellow who had much knowledge of the Scriptures, and could reason well therin." He said Hopkins led a mutiny stating, "that it was no breach of honesty, conscience, nor Religion, to decline from the obedience of the Governour, or refuse to goe any further, led by his authority (except it so pleased themselves) since the authority ceased when the wracke was committed, and with it, they were freed from the government of any man." He was brought before a Martial Court and charged with treason. He pleaded for his life and was freed. When those shipwrecked built two small boats, he was among those who sailed with them for Virginia. He quickly returned to England and later joined with the Pilgrims.
His will was written 6 June 1644. It was presented 27 July 1644 and proven on 20 August 1644.
