In the novel Sad Cypress, Jessie Hopkins is a district nurse sometimes helping nurse O'Brien taking care of Mrs Laura Welman.

Later it turns out that nurse Hopkins actually is Mary Riley, the sister of Eliza Gerrard (Mary Gerrard's mother). Mary Riley had moved to New Zealand, and her married name is Mary Draper. She travelled back to England using the name Jessie Hopkins.
