Hinshaw is right. Commoners didn't have middle names back then.

Stephen's first marriage was to just plain Mary Unknown. Machell is not working out completely as her maiden name so it's premature to list that name.

There was a Mary Jane Merritt who married a Munsey Hopkins in 1847 something around there. There was a Mary Merrick who married Stephen Hopkins' grandson. Some people have her marrying Stephen after he was dead. Amazing.

Also the London, Middlesex stuff is wrong for Mary. Her probate was in Hursley, Hampshire. Buried 9 May 1613. We don't know where or when she was born.

See how all these mistakes came to be at an abbreviated free GoogleBooks entry from Caleb Johnson's "Here Shall I Die Ashore" at http://tinyurl.com/Johnson-Book . This is the man who in 1998 organized tracking down the three kids' baptism records and wife Mary's burial and probate records from 1613 in Hursley, Hampshire. See the part about Stephen's parents.

I'm also looking for input for the 2013 revisions to Stephen at http://boards.ancestry.com/surnames.hopkins/5435/mb.ashx .
If you've found something since the last time you read the 3-part series of posts please let us know.

Even WIKIPEDIA has him more right than most of the trees on the internet. http://tinyurl.com/WIKIPEDIA-Stephen-Hopkins . Note this is NOT Wikitrees which are really weird at this point for him.
