Our earliest known Hopper/Modlin/Hudson ancestor was Robert Hudson who arrived in Jamestown on the ship "James" in 1622. This was documented by the "Muster of the Inhabitants of Chaplains Choyse and the Trueloves Company taken on January 21, 1624 by Ensigne Isack Chaplaine that was sent to England in 1625 by Sir Francis Wyatt, Governor. His son was Richard Hudson who founded Roxdale Plantation and married Mary Bowman - and who died in 1669.
