In another of our series of programs on our ancestors, our October 20 meeting in San Diego will feature a presentation on Stephen Hopkins by our good Friend, Bev Nickerson, and Kenneth Whittemore, Jr., Governor of the General Society of Mayflower Descendants in California. They will focus on Hopkins’s life after Jamestown. He first arrived in Jamestown in 1610 among the Sea Venture castaways that had been shipwrecked on Bermuda in 1609-10, then returned to England before 1617 and came back to America on the Mayflower in 1620.
As preparation for the meeting, Bev reports that she has “just read a wonderful new history book called A Tale of Two Colonies: What really happened in Virginia and Bermuda?” by Virginia Bernhard, which includes Hopkins.
We will post more details about the October 20 meeting in the near future.
