Oceanus Hopkins (1620c. 1623) was the only child born on the Mayflower voyage during its historic voyage which brought the Pilgrims to America. A girl was born while they were docked. Oceanus was born to Stephen Hopkins and his wife, Elizabeth (née Fisher), sometime between the boarding and arrival dates of September 6 and November 9, 1620. He did not survive long, and was dead before the 1627 Division of Land. Oceanus Hopkins was named so because he was born in a ship in the Atlantic Ocean and the Latin word for the ocean is Oceanus. His body and grave are lost.
