Biography

ELIZABETH HOPKINS was born in Ribbesford, Worcester, England, and baptised Oct. 7, 1610, at Ribbesford Church. She died at New Haven in 1658.

JOHN WAKEMAN arrived in America about 1634 and settled at Fairfield, Fairfield, CT. He was an early signer of the New Haven compact, but not an original signer. He held the positions of magistrate, deputy to the New Haven Legislature, and then Treasurer of New Haven, between 1641 and 1661. He moved to Hartford, Hartford, CT, shortly before his death in 1661.

The religious preamble to his will indicates that he was thoughtful and tolerant to a degree unusual in his generation.
