Oceanus Hopkins (1620—c.1626) was the only child born on the Mayflower during its historic voyage which brought the English Pilgrims to America. A boy, Peregrine White, was born on board, after arriving in America, as the ship lay at anchor.
Oceanus was born to Stephen Hopkins and his wife, Elizabeth Hopkins (née Fisher), sometime between the boarding and arrival dates of September 6 and November 9, 1620. He died at about age six, certainly before the 1627 Division of Land. The location of his grave is unknown.
