Stephen Hopkins married his first wife, Mary ____ by 1604 in England .She was buried at Hursley, Hampshire, England on 9 May 1613. Her burial record identifies her as a widow because she died thinking she was, Stephen having been shipwrecked in Bermuda enroute to Jamestown..They had 3 children: Elizabeth (who died in England), Constance Snow, and Giles. See Anderson's The Pilgrim Migration, an update of his Great Migration Begins.
Find A Grave contributor Ramona Michael adds:
Mary and Stephen's daughter, Constance Hopkins Snow, #8634 is unlinked because she is designated "famous". She came over on the Mayflower with her father, Stephen, her step-mother, Elizabeth Fisher Hopkins, her younger brother, Giles, and her half-sister, Damaris. Half-brother, Oceanus, was born onboard the Mayflower on the trip to America.
Constance's mother, Mary ____ (maiden name undocumented) died in 1613. Her older sister, Elizabeth, either died prior to the voyage of the Mayflower or stayed behind in England, as she is not listed on the passenger list.
It is believed that Mary Kent is the name of his first wife at this time. "FIRST MARRIAGE: Mary, possibly the daughter of Robert and Joan (Machell) Kent of Hursley, co. Hampshire, prior to 1604".
