notes

NEHGS, Vol 127, April 1973 page 102:

"The authority for naming Constant SNOW as the first wife of Daniel DOANE appers to be a notebook on Eastham families kept by Josiah PAINE, for half a century the town clerk of Harwich. The notebook is now in the possession of the Eastham Public Library. Mr. PAINE did not cite the sources of his information unless it came from individuals, so it may be assumed that he found some evidence for his statement; however no one had discovered where he found it.

It should be noted that the MAYFLOWER SOCIETY doesn NOT accept lines of descent through the first wife of Daniel DOANE."

For some reason the marriage of Daniel and Constance and their children were not recorded in the Eastham, Barnstable Massachusetts records.

  • Constance Hopkins (baptized May 11, 1606 – October 1677), also sometimes listed as Constance. She was probably born in Hursley, England since her baptism record is there along with older sister and younger brother. Constance was the second daughter of Stephen Hopkins, by his first wife, Mary. Some believe she was named in honor of Constance (Marline) Hopkins. Constance, at the age of fourteen, along with her father and his second wife Elizabeth (Fisher), accompanied by brother Giles, half-sister Damaris as well as two servants by the name of Edward Doty and Edward Lester were passengers on the Mayflower on its journey to the New World in 1620. Along the way her half-brother Oceanus was born, the only child born on the Mayflower journey. Her headstone marker, placed in 1966 by descendants, states in part “Wife of Nicholas Snow, Eastham’s first town clerk 1646 – 1662”.
  • Constance married Nicholas sometime before the Division of Cattle which occurred May 22, 1627. Nicholas came to Plymouth on board the ship Anne in 1623 and was made a freeman at Plymouth in 1633. The inventory of Nicholas Snow's estate made at his death lists a wide variety of cooper's and carpenter's tools; this may indicate his trade. He was town clerk at Eastham and held several other local government offices.
