Stephen Hopkins travelled to America in 1609 aboard the Sea Venture,
in a failed colonization attempt at Jamestown. During a storm he was
marooned on a Bermudan island, and narrowly escaped harsh punishment
for challenging the colonial governor's authority. After several
months, he and the other stranded colonists managed to leave the
island and reach Jamestown. Some believe that fellow colonist William
Strachey's account of this experience inspired William Shakespeare to
write his play "The Tempest." Stephen Hopkins remained in Jamestown
until about 1613, then returned to England.
Hopkins sailed again to America on the Mayflower in 1620, and was a
founding member of the Plymouth Colony in Massachussetts. He had
developed a good relationship with the Native Americans during his
earlier stay in Jamestown, and became an ambassador to tribal leaders
Massasoit and Samoset. He was a signer of the Mayflower Compact, and
was mentioned in many official Massachussetts colonial records.
Hopkins later served as Assistant Governor of Plymouth, but
throughout his life in America he had difficulty living within the
laws himself.
