Stephen Hopkins, Mayflower passenger 1620. The only Mayflower passenger who had previously been to the New World, including surviving a shipwreck in Bermuda and working from 1610–14 in Jamestown. William Shakespeare's "The Tempest" is believed to be based upon his Bermuda shipwreck incident. The first formal meeting with the Indians was held at Hopkins’ house and he was called upon to participate in early Pilgrim visits with the Indian leader Massasoit. Generation 13 on family tree.
