    • (Died between 16 Jun 1730 and 21 May 1731). A descendant of Pilgrim Stephen Hopkins. His gravestone on Burial Hill, Plymouth, reads "Here lyes ye body of Mr. William Ring who decd Sum time in April 1729 in ye 77th year of his age," but the year appears to be in error. On 11 Jul 1685 William Ring gave bond for his cousin Caleb Hopkins of Eastham, who was charged with supplying strong drink to Indians. He was referred to as elder son in his father's will of 1691. William served as a grand juror at Plymouth between 1699 and 1705. He was named administrator of the estate of his son William on 29 Apr 1730. (MD 4:194-8) The will of William Ring, husbandman of Plymouth, dated 16 Jun 1730, mentions wife Hannah, daus. Elizabeth Pearce and Deborah Ring and son Eleazer, who was named executor.(MD 17:150-4) Letters were granted to Eleazer on 22 May 1731. Hannah Ring of Plymouth receipted for the estate of her son Eleazer on 1 Feb 1741. The will of Eleazer Ring, written 3 Feb. 1734/5 left one fourth of his estate to the children of his sister Elizabeth Pearce, and three fourths to his mother and sister Deborah (MD 17:150-4). Hannah Ring of Plymouth, widow of William Ring, late of Plymouth, yeoman, conveyed property "for love and affection" to the children of her dau.
