I have it from this I found online:
Mary Hopkins, b. 19 Aug. 1690 at Farmington, Hartford, CT
d. 18 Aug. 1690, Farmington.

Anne Townsend

 

Anybody out there have info on William Hopkins who was of Stratford CT
in the mid 1600's?  Perhaps went to Milford or New Haven CT.

Was he the SAME William who was Assistant, Conn. Col. April 1641, April
1642 [Conn. Col. I, 64, 71 cited in Jacobus: Vol. VIII p. 984]?

Was this the SAME William who had daughter Elizabeth (m. John Wakeman,
and died in New Haven 1658 - 1st Ch. of Christ records) and was from
Brewdley, England?

Was this William related to Gov. Edward Hopkins and/or John Hopkins of
Hartford?

My Samuel Hopkins (1636-1711) needs a father.  He was married in New
Haven CT Dec 1667, so we are looking for a candidate in that area.

Thanks for any help.

Francis was a renegade bandit  not a mere Troy but one of a band of robbers
and murderers,around the settlement of Holston ,Francis came in to the
neighborhood where William Campbell lived and during his being
there,William Campbell gates were placarded threatening his life- a few
days latter Campbell in  company with his wife and a large number of
persons ,was coming home from church from the Ebbing Spring Meeting House .
Where Campbell did not know  Hopkins ,as soon as Hopkins passed it was
stated by some one that was Hopkins , Wm Campbell instantly wheeled his
horse around,which was a fine horse and made out for Hopkins 
In a mile or two Campbell came in site and Hopkins knowing that it was
Campbell,Hopkins also being on a fine horse took off at his best speed,The
race continued a mile or so to the middle of the fork of the Holston River
Hopkins reaching a bluff jumped his horse down some 15 feet to 20 feet to
the river .Campbell was in close pursuit and followed in the river.The jump
threw Hopkins off his horse
Hopkins was the stronger of the two and was almost drowning Campbell .When
Edmiston and serveral other men came to help  By this assistance Hopkins
was subdued  and taken to the bank. All knew of Hopkins desperate
character,the men knew that there was no jail in which he could be
secured,they held a consultation and decided that they would hand him and
did so foorthwith by sticking his neck in to the fork of a leaning sycamore
tree which bent over the river

I am hunting James Stewart Hopkins, he was a peace officer in Logan Co. Ark
killed Dec 26, 1884. having been born June 1852,  He is buried in Magazine
Ark.  I know that when I contacted the Hopkins line they always said he was
of the Hopkins/ Joslin line and that is all.  I do not know where he was
born but he married my great grandmother (Where?). She was Lucy Kendall
Wilson born in Tupelo Mississippi and is buried in Little Rock Ark.

I sm suppose to get copies of her bible info soon.  I will not accept that
she married a murderer.  She was a very dignified woman.   She had 2
children when Hopkins was killed and married a Baptist minister and had 2
more children.

Where are these people you are talking about born?   What state & county?
Please let me know.  I find it very hard to believe that we have any
connection with this group.

Hi Everybody!
     I also would like information on this line.  I believe I also descend
from them, through their son William, their grandson, Joslin, their great
granddaughter Elizabeth and their great great granddaughter Louisa E. Hopkins
who married John Wesley Brown (if my info is correct).  I am fairly new to
this.  I have a slight problem in that my father drowned when I was two years
old and I never knew any of his side of the family.  I recently came across a
posting on the internet of a gedcom that included my father.  This gedcom
included the Hopkins line, but I have not yet documented any of the
information.  If anyone can assist me, I would be extremely grateful!
Thanks in Advance,

==================

20 May 1783---William Hopkins forfeited bond for stealing a horse.

Now this is all that actually occurred in the County records, but
100years later Draper started checking incidents of historical interest
and according to his report, Francis Hopkins was hanged by William
Campbell and a Negro, Thomas about 1779. Is was said he was a Tory and
many other things...but from a very careful study, the conclusion is
that the occurrence was occasioned by the fact that the Scotch-Irish
were unhappy with the people who migrated down from Connecticut, New
Jersey and New York...even in Draper's account, it appeared that
Campbell chased Francis Hopkins and hanged him, only because he was told
that he was a trouble-maker.....

>From book "John Hopkins of Campbridge MA, 1634   And Some of His
Descendants"  by Timothy Hopkins  1932

Page 74. Person number 24. Reverend Samuel, DD
(Timothy, John, Stephen, John), b. at Waterbury, Connecticut, 17
September 1721.  He m. (1) at Great Barrington, Massachusetts, 13,
January 1748, Joanna Ingersoll, b. at Springfield, 1 February 1725,
daughter of Moses Ingersoll, b. at Westfield, Massachusetts, 10 February
1694, and Catherine ______. She d. 31 August 1793, at Great Barrington
while visiting her children. (V.R. Great Barrington; Providence, Rhode
Island, Gazette, 21 Septhember 1793) He m. (2) at Newport, Rhode Island,
14 September 1794, Elizabeth West, b. 7 October 1738, at Newport, She d.
9 April 1814, at Taunton, Massachusetts.

Rev. Samuel Hopkins, DD, from whom the Hopkinsian system of theology
took its name, says in his autobiography: "As soon as I was capable of
understanding and attending to it, I was told that my father when he was
informed he had a son born to him, said, if the child should live he
would give him a public education, that he might be a minister or a
Sabbath-day man, allurding to my being born on the Sabbath."

He graduated at Yale, 1741, studied divinity with Rev. Jonathan Edwards
and was licensed to preach in 1742.  He was evidently regarded as a man
of promise, for he had an unusual number of invitations to preach with a
view to settlement; and it was considered a proof of great
disinterestedness when he accepted the call of the North Parish of
Sheffield, or Housatonic (now Great Barrington)  Massachusetts, which at
the time of his ordination as pastor in December 1743, consisted of only
thirty families and was one of seven white settlements in Berkshire
County.

His labors were in a frontier community whose people wer in constant
fear of Indians, for a French and Indian war raged from 1744 to 1749,
and another from 1752 to 1763.  His parishioners ofter went to meeting
with their guns on their shoulders, and, in 1746, Hopkins himself spent
three months in a scouting party of whites and Indians.  In September
1754, he had to remove his family to Canaan for safety; and in July
1755, in recording fatalities from the proximity of the Indians, he
remarks: "Indians chased a man about one and a half miles west of my
house." Dr. Parks say of Dr. Hopkins and these trials and interruptions
to his ministry: "His partriotism fitted him to be a theologian, and his
theology made him a patriot."

In spite of war, famine, meagre supplies, and the opposition of enemies,
Dr Hopkins labored at Great Barrington for twenty-five years -
preaching, studying, and writing.  In 1769, his theological views having
met with opposition, and his strong sympathy with the Whig party having
aroused so much feeling among his Tory parishioners, he felt his
usefulness to be at an end, and he called upon his people to unite with
him in summoning a council to dissolve their connection.

In April 1770, he accepted the pastorate of the First Church in Newport,
Rhode Island, but while that place was occupied by the British from 1776
to 1780, he labored elsewhere awaiting the day when it would be possible
to return to the then desolate town.  His church was used as a barracks
by the invaders; the pulpit, the pews, and the windows had been
demolished, and the bell carried off; but he refused a flattering call
to another parish, with a generous salary, as he preferred to labor in
penury with the church and congregation he loved.

In 1790 Brown University conferred upon him the degree of Doctor of
Divinity.  Nine years later he had an attack of paralysis, from which he
never fully recovered, but he continued to preach occasionally, and with
unimpaired mental vigor, almost until his death in 1803, which closed a
ministry extending over sixty years.


>From "Academic American Encyclopedia"

Hopkins, Samuel

Samuel Hopkins, b. Newport, R.I., Sept 17, 1721, d. Dec. 20, 1803, was
an American Congregrational minister and theologian.  His thought, based
on the theology of his teacher Jonathan Edwards, was knonw as
Hopkinsianism.  He emphasized the sovereignty of God, who does all
things for his own glory and for the good of creation; even sin is used
as a means toward the greatest good. Hopkins's teaching gave
considerable support to revivalism.  He served long pastorates in
massachusetts and Rhode Island and was one of the first New England
leaders to denounce the slave trade.

Notes:
>From "John Hopkins (of Cambridge, Massachusetts, 1634) And Some of His
Descendants"  by Timothy Hopkins

"In the absence of records there is conclusive evidence that Bethiah was
born after the family removed to Hartford. Governor Winthrop attended
her child in 1669, and the entry in his Journal read: "Bethia Stockin
about 28 years, wife of Stockin of Middletown, child of about one month
old" (p. 926). In March 1697-98, "Bethiah Steele, 57 years of age or
thereabouts" made a deposition in the Hartford Court concerning the will
of her first husband. (Probate Court Record, pp. 44-45, Manwaring,
1:587.) Twenty-nine years intervened between these statments, but both
are in agreement that she was born in 1641.

Bethiah's marriage at the age of eleven and the birth of her first child
when thirteen is unusual and would indicate that she might have been a
"big" girl, precociously developed."

HOPKINS, Edward, statesman, b. in Shrewsbury, England, in 1600; d. in Londonin March, 1657.  He was an eminent merchant of London, emigrated to Boston
in 1637, and soon afterward removed to Hartford, Conn., where he was chosen
magistrate in 1639, and governor of the colony every even year from 1640
till 1654, alternating with John Haynes.  He assisted in forming the union
of the colonies of New England in 1643, but on the death of his elder
brother he returned to England, became warden of the fleet, commissioner of
the admiralty and member of parliament.  He did not lose his interest in the
colonies, but at his death left much of his estate to New England, giving
1,000 pounds to the grammar schools of Hartford, New Haven, and Hadley, the
income from which is still appropriated to their use, and 500 pounds that,
by a decree of chancery in 1710, was paid to Harvard.  This money was
invested in real estate in a township that was bought from the "praying
Indians" in 1700, and called Hopkinton in honor of the donor.  What is known
as "Gov. Eaton's Code of Laws" was sent to England and printed under Gov.
Hopkins's supervision shortly after his return to that country.  His
great-grandson, Daniel, clergyman, b. in Waterbury, Conn., 16 Oct., 1734; d.
in Salem, Mass., 14 Dec., 1814, was graduated at Yale in 1758, taught in
Salem from 1766 till 1788, in 1775 was a member of the Provincial congress,
and in 1788 one of the council.  From November, 1788, until his death he was
pastor of the 3d Congregational church of Salem.  In 1809 he received the
degree of D. D. from Dartmouth.  A volume of his works, with a memoir by
Edward A. Park, has been published (Andover, 1854).

HOPKINS, Lemuel, poet, b. in Waterbury, Conn., 19 June, 1750; d. in
Hartford, Conn., 14 April, 1801.  He was a farmer's son, and after obtaining
a good education studied medicine at Wallingford, served for a short time as
a volunteer in the Revolutionary army, and practiced at Litchfield from 1776
till 1784, when he removed to Hartford.  He was noted for independence of
thought and various talents, and was singular in appearance and manners.
His death was hastened by repeated bleedings, which he ordered for the
purpose of averting an expected attack of pulmonary disease.  He was one of
the coterie called the Hartford wits, consisting , besides himself, of John
Trumbull, David Humphreys, Richard Alsop, Joel Barlow, Theodore Dwight, and
others who were associated in the authorship of "The Anarchiad," a series of
essays modeled after the English work called "The Rolliad," and having for
their object the advocacy of an efficient federal constitution.  Dr. Hopkins
projected this work, consisting of pretended extracts from what purported to
be an ancient heroic poem in English that had been discovered in the
interior of the American continent.  He had the largest share in writing the
essays, which were mostly composed in concert.  He afterward wrote parts of
the series of satirical papers called "The Echo" and "The Political
Greenhouse," and contributed also to "The Guillotine."  For several years he
wrote satirical "New-Year's Verses" for a political newspaper of Hartford.
In early life he was an adherent of the French infidel philosophy, but later
he became a diligent student of the Bible, and employed his powers of wit an
sarcasm in "The Anarchiad" and other satirical writings in defense of the
Christian theology.  He is said to have written for Barlow the version of
the 137th psalm, beginning "Along the banks where Babel's current flows."
Among the best known of his poems are "The Hypocrite's Hope" and an elegy on
"The Victim of a Cancer Quack."  Some of his verses appear in the collection
of "American Poems" edited by Elisha Smith (Litchfield, 1793)., and in
Charles W. Everest's "Poets of Connecticut" (Hartford, 1843).

HOPKINS, Samuel, theologian, b., in Waterbury, Conn., 17 Sept., 1721; d. in
Newport, R.I., 20 Dec., 1803, He was brought up on a farm, graduated at Yale
in 1741, and trained in theology by Jonathan Edwards.  In 1743 he was
ordained pastor of the church at Housatonnue (afterward Great Barrington),
Mass., but in January, 1769, he was dismissed because his church was reduced
in numbers.  On 11 April, 1770, he was settled over a church in Newport,
R.I.  In December, 1776, when the British took possession of Newport, he
retired to Great Barrington.  During the summer of 1777 he preached to a
large congregation at Newburyport, Mass., and subsequently at Canterbury and
Stamford, Conn.  In the spring of 1780, after the evacuation of Newport by
the British, he returned, but found his congregation diminished and
impoverished.  For the remainder of his life he was obliged to depend on the
weekly contributions of his hearers and the assistance of friends.  In
January, 1799, paralysis deprived him of the use of his limbs.  He was as
early advocate of the emancipation of negro slaves, freed his own, and
originated the idea of sending the liberated slaves to Africa to act as
agents of civilization.  The agitation that was begun by him led to
organized political action in Rhode Island and the passing of a law, in
1774, forbidding the importation of negroes into the colony, followed after
the Revolution by an act of the legislature declaring all children of slaves
that should be born subsequent to 1 March, 1785, to be free.  He was the
author of the modifications of the Calvinistic theology that came to be
known as Hopkinsianism.  He believed that the inability of the unregenerate
is owing to moral and not to natural causes, and that sinners are free
agents and deserving of punishment, through all acts, sinful as a well as
righteous, are the result of the decrees of providence.  The essence of sin,
he thought, consisted in the disposition and intention of the mind.  Dr.
Hopkins was an exceedingly modest and devout man, and exemplified the
disposition of unselfishness and benevolence which he regarded as the basis
of a Christian life.  He was the original of one of the principal characters
in Harriet Beecher Stowe's "Minister's Wooing."  His theological theories,
which created an epoch in the development of religious thought in New
England, were first presented from the pulpit, and were developed, with some
modifications, after his heath, by his friends, Stephen West, Nathaniel
Emmons, and Samuel Spring.  Among his published sermons are "Sin, through
Divine Interposition, an Advantage to the Universe; and yet this is no
Excuse for Sin or Encouragement to it" (1759); "An Inquiry whether the
Promises of the Gospel are made to the Exercises and Dealings of Persons in
the Unregenerate State" (1765); "The True State and Character of the
Unregenerate" (1769); and "An Inquiry into the Nature of True Holiness"
(1773).  His "Dialogue Showing it to be the Duty and Interest of the
American States to Emancipate all their African Slaves" appeared in 1776.
His theological views were expounded in "A System of Doctrines Contained in
Divine Revelation" (1793).  He published a "Life of President Edwards" and
lives of Susannah Anthony (1796), and Mrs. Osborn (1798).  A dialogue on the
nature and extent of true Christian submission, an address to professing
Christians, and sketches of his own life were included in a collection of
his works published by Dr. Stephen West (Stockbridge, 1805).  A subsequent
edition of his collected writings contains a memoir by Dr. Edwards A. Park
(Boston, 1852).  A "Treatise on the Millennium," originally published with
the "System of Divinity," was reissued in 1854.

HOPKINS, William Fenn, educator, b. in Connecticut in 1802; d. in Jamaica,
W. I., 13 July, 1859.  He was graduated at the U.S. military academy in
1825, assigned to the artillery, and employed, with the rank of lieutenant
as assistant professor in 1826-'7, and from 1827 till 1835 as acting
professor of chemistry, mineralogy, and geology.  He resigned in 1836 and
engaged in mercantile pursuits, declining the professorship of mathematics
in Jefferson college, La., in 1837.  In 1843 he became principal of Norfolk
academy, Va., and in 1846 adjunct-superintendent and professor of natural
sciences in the Western military institute at Georgetown, Ky., having the
rank of lieutenant-colonel.  In 1849 he was chosen president and
mathematical professor in the Masonic university of Tennessee at
Clarksville, Tenn., which post he exchanged the same year for that of
professor of chemistry and natural philosophy in William and Mary college,
Va. In 1850 he was appointed professor of natural and experimental
philosophy in the U.S. naval academy at Annapolis, Md., where he remained
until four months before his death, when he received the appointment of U.S.

Fellow Hopkins Genealogists,
          I came across a message to Virginia Allen at HOPKINS-L from
[email protected] about an Andrew Jackson Hopkins and thought I'd add what

Jackson Clark who was married to an Erutha Hopkins as indicated below.

Dear fellow Hopkins hunters,
I am of Hopkins blood by way of my G-G-Ggrandmother Sarah Hopkins b.
1785 d. 1850, who married Nathan Waite Tubbs. The family paperwork has
always purported that Sarah was a descendant of Stephen Hopkins of the
Mayflower.
Sarah's father was Timothy Hopkins and without going into great detail,
includes "Deacon" Timothy Hopkins, "Capt." Timothy Hopkins of Waterbury
Ct., John Hopkins and Stephen Hopkins. I know that there is much public
documentation to the early hopkins as well as much debate also. I would
be interested in hearing from anyone who may have found the link I have
mentioned previously with Sarah.
Feel free to mail me direct ...

Stephen Hopkins Willey [email protected]

I am pleased to be part of the Hopkins rootsweb.  My interest is through
Robert Hoskins 1662-1729 whose wife was Mary Gillette, born August 2, 1668.
She was the daughter of Cornelius and Priscilla Gillette.  Priscilla's maiden
name was Kelsey and her parents were William Kelsey born 1600 and Bethia
Hopkins born 1605-1610 and died 1680 in Hartford, Connecticut.  I have some
information that she was the daughter of Stephen Hopkins of the Mayflower ,
but Some say she was the daughter of John Hopkins.  It's been quite confusing
and I would so appreciate any information.  Possibly I will never find out,
but as a genealogist, I'll keep trying.  Robert Hoskins and Mary Gillette are
my direct descendents. My great grandmother was Mary Ann Hoskins born 1833 and
she was married to Benjamin Roberts born 1833.  Both were born in Ohio and
then they moved to VanBuren County, Iowa.
Thank you for letting me be part of your group.    Sincerely, Jean Kimble
