Governor Edward WINSLOW [Parents] [scrapbook] 1 was born 2 on 18 Oct 1595 in Droitwich, Worcestershire, England, United Kingdom. He was christened 3, 4 on 20 Oct 1595 in St Peters, Droitwich, Worcester, England, United Kingdom. He died 5 on 8 May 1655 in at Sea, Near Jamaica. Edward married 6 Elizabeth BARKER on 16 May 1618 in Leyden, Holland.

Other marriages:
FULLER, Susanna

BORN: 18 October 1595, Droitwich, Worcester, England, son of Edward Winslow and Magdalene Oliver

BAPTIZED: 20 October 1595, St. Peters, Droitwich, Worcester, England DIED: 8 May 1655, at sea between Hispaniola and Jamaica, in the West Indies  MARRIED: Elizabeth Barker, 16 May 1618, Leyden, Holland; she died 24 March 1620/1 at Plymouth.
Susanna (---) White, the widow of William White, 12 May 1621, Plymouth.

NOTE: Numerous sources have incorrectly given Edward Winslow's birth and baptism date (including Mayflower Families for Five Generations [Volume 5], Eugene Stratton's Plymouth Colony: Its History and Its People, and James Savage's Genealogical Dictionary of the First Settlers of New England).  I have checked the original parish register for the year 1595, and the entry reads exactly as follows:

October .20. Edward Wynsloe sonne of Edward Wynsloe was Baptized & Born the xviii th of October being Saterday

Govenor of Massachusetts and a Mayflower passenger. Edward Winslow was the son of Edward Winslow, a wealthy owner of a salt boilery, and Magdalene Oliver. Edward Winslow was baptized at Droitwich, Worcester, England on 28 October 1595.

Winslow soon joined with the Separatists, and moved to Leyden where he became a printer along with William Brewster, publishing illegal religious pamphlets.  His first wife, Elizabeth Barker, was from Chattisham, Suffolk, England.

His second wife was the widow of William White of the Mayflower.
For a description of what is known about her (she is not a Fuller) see William White.

Winslow also made trips to England in the early years of the Colony to conduct business agreements and make legal arrangements, including trips in 1623-4, 1630, and 1635.  In 1646 he returned to live in England and served in the English army under Oliver Cromwell . In 1655 he died of a fever on a military expedition to capture the island of Hispaniola. Upon his death, one of the ship's chroniclers wrote this poem:

The Eighth of May, west from 'Spaniola shore,
God took from us our Grand Commissioner,
Winslow by Name, a man in Chiefest Trust,
Whose Life was sweet, and Conversation just;
Whose Parts and wisdome most men did excell:
An honour to his Place, as all can tell.

Edward Winslow authored several books.  He wrote Good News From New England first published in 1624.  He authored a good portion of Mourt's Relation: A Journal of the Pilgrims at Plymouth first published in 1622.  Winslow also wrote Hypocricie Unmasked (1646), and New England's Salamander (1647), which are both for the most part religious discourses.  He also edited several pamphlets.

The ancestry of Edward Winslow is as follows:

(1) Kenelm Winslow of Kempsey (it has been suggested, but not proved, that he married Elizabet Foliot, daughter of John Foliot--see NEHGR 122:175-178)

(2) Edward Winslow, m. Magdalene Oliver

(3) Edward Winslow of the Mayflower

Edward Winslow had four other siblings which came to America, namely Gilbert Winslow (Mayflower, 1620), John Winslow (Fortune, 1621), Josias Winslow (White Angel, 1631), and Kenelm Winslow, who married Eleanor (Newton) Adams, who came in the Anne, 1623.  Edward Winslow also had several sisters, including Magdalen who married Rev. William Wake on 25 April 1627, in Wareham, Dorset, England.

GOVERNOR EDWARD WINSLOW'S WILL.

THE will of Governor Edward Winslow, which is preserved at Somerset House, London, is one of the three existing original wills of Mayflower passengers. The others are Mary (Chilton) Winslow's and Peregrine White's, both of which we have already reproduced. The illustration of Governor winslow's will facing this page is from a photograph made at the expense of the Foreign Research Fund and secured by the Hon. Winslow Warren, of our Committee on Publication, with the courteous assistance of the Rev. Stopford W. Brooke, of London.

No mention of Governor Winslow's death is found on the Plymouth Colony records, and we learn the date from Nathaniel Morton's New England's Memorial, under the year 1655. We reprint his account in lid], from the Rev. Thomas Prince's copy of the first edition (1669), now in the Boston Public Library.

This year that Worthy and Honourable Gentleman Mr. Edward Winslow deceased; of whom I have had occasion to make honourable mention formerly in this Discourse. He was the Son of Edward Winslow Esq; of the Town of Draughtwich* in the County of Worcester: He travelling into the Low-Countreys, in his Journeys fell into acquaintance with the Church of Leyden in Holland, unto whom he joyned, and with whom he continued until they parted to come into New-England, he coming with that part that came first over, and became a very worthy and useful Instrument amongst them, both in the place of Government and otherwise, until his last Voyage for England, being sent on special Imployment for the Government of the Massachusets, as is forementioned in this Book; and afterwards was imployed as one of the grand Commissioners in that unhappy Design against 1)omingo in Hispaniola, who taking grief for the ill success of that Enterprize; on which, together with some other Infirmities that were upon him, he fell sick at Sea betwixt Domingo and Jamaica, and died the eighth day of May, which was about the Sixty first year of his life, and his Body was honourably committed to the Sea, with the usual Solemnity of the Discharge of Fourty two Piece of Ordnance.

* Droitwich.

One of the Company who was imployed in taking notice of the Particulars of that Tragedy, gave such Testimony of the said Mr. Winslow, as followeth in this Poem:

God took from us our Grand Commissioner,
Winslow by Name, a man in Chiefest Trust,
Whose Life was sweet, and Conversation just
Whose Parts and wisdome most men did excell:
An honour to his Place, as all can tell.

While examining the Marshfield town records some time since, the Editor discovered a vote
regarding the disposition of the ten pounds bequeathed by Governor Winslow to the poor of that town. A literal transcript of this record follows the copy of the will.

EDWARD WINSLOW'S FIRST MARRIAGE

THE illustration facing this page shows the record at Leyden of the three publications of the banns of Edward Winslow and Elizabeth Barker, on 28 April, 5 May and 12 May, 1618, but the date of the marriage was not added to this record and has not been found. The ceremony doubtless took place not long after the third publication of the banns. This record of the banns is found in Echt Book B, folio 75.

Susanna FULLER died in 1680. Susanna married Governor Edward WINSLOW 1 on 16 May 1621 in Plymouth, Plymouth, Massachusetts, United States.

First husband was William White who died 3 mar 1621 at Plymouth. Susanna mar. William at Leyden, Holland 1 feb 1612.

The record of the admission to the Marshfield church of Peregrine2 White, son of William1 and Susanna (Fuller) White, is of interest not only because he was born on the Mayflower, at Cape Cod Harbor (now Provincetown, Mass.), and was the last Mayflower Passenger to become a church member, but also because he was the last Mayflower Passenger to die.

THE SO-CALLED WILLIAM WHITE BIBLE

BY THE EDITOR (George Ernest Bowman)

An entry in the bible says that William White married Susannah Tilley the ‘3d day of March 1620'; but the records at Leyden, Holland, show that in 1612 William White married Susanna Fuller, sister of Dr. Samuel Fuller and that they had two children who died in Leyden. Another child, Resolved, was born in leyden, came with his parents in the Mayflower, married as has numerous descendants now living, who will resent the statement that William white did not marry until 1620, and that they are not descended form the mother of the first white child born in New England, form the first bride and from the mother of the first native-born governor.

Stephen ALDOUS [Parents] was born in 1607 in Suffolk, England, United Kingdom. He was christened on 25 Jun 1607 in Fressingfield, Suffolk, England, United Kingdom. He was buried on 24 Apr 1637 in Fressingfield, Suffolk, England, United Kingdom. Stephen married Anne MILLES on 5 May 1636 in Metfield, Suffolk, England, United Kingdom.

From records in the posession of Tim Farr.

  Stephen Aldous of Fressingfield, Suffolk, England, was almost twenty-nine years old in 1636 when he married Anne Milles.  Their first child, a son they named Stephen, turned out to also be their only child, when two months after he was born the new father passed away.  His death must have saddened many in Fressingfield, because his burial entry has the notation "married a year" after it, where most entries of that period just have the name and date.  He evident- ly expected to be called from this earthly life, probably as the re- sult of a serious illness or accident.  Whatever the reason was, he wrote a will on the tenth of April 1637, less than two weeks before his death. He got someone else to write it down, but he signed it, and the signature looks as though made by an unsteady hand.    As was customary in wills, he first bequeathed his "soule into the hands of Allmighty god my creator & Savior & my body to the earth from whenc it cam," and then touched upon "my temporall goods, cat- tell, chattells, Tenemts, lands houshold stuffe & utensills of hous- hold whatsoevr." He gave to his wife Anne "my Tenemt wherin I now dwell," all his land, also all his "goods cattell & chattells." Anne was to have them as long as she lived, "upon Condicon that she the said Anne my wife shall maynteyne & kepe and godly educate Steven Aldous my sonne in good & sufficiet mannr, untill he shall come unto his age of Foure and Twenty yeares." After that she was to "pay . . . unto him the said Steven . . . the yearly . . . sume of Five poundes . . . all the residue of years . . . of ye naturall life of hir the said Anne my wife." After her decease the lands and goods were to become Stephen's.  We learn from the Manor Court Rolls of the Manor of Chevenhall alias Chepenhall that the name of at least part of Stephen's proper- ty, and maybe all of it, was Babilons alias Bourneys alias Peasley, property which had belonged to hi- ancestors for generations.  Stephen was buried at Fressingfield on the twenty-fourth of April in 1637.  Widow Anne eventually married again, and later became a widow the second time. As the widow Daines she is recorded in the Manor Court Rolls as dying just previous to 17 March 1697, at which time her son Stephen was admitted tenant of the property left to her by her husband Stephen Aldous many years before.  The same Court Rolls state that he had received the premises in October of 1628 after the death of his father, also Stephen.

Anne MILLES was born about 1611 in of Metfield, Suffolk, England, United Kingdom. Anne married Stephen ALDOUS on 5 May 1636 in Metfield, Suffolk, England, United Kingdom.

Other marriages:
DAINES,

They had the following children.

  M i Stephen ALDOUS was christened on 26 Feb 1636/1637. He was buried on 25 Jan 1721/1722.

John WINSLOW [Parents] 1 was born on 16 Apr 1597 in Droitwich, Worcestershire, England, United Kingdom. He was christened 2, 3 on 18 Apr 1597 in Droitwich, Worcestershire, England, United Kingdom. He died on 21 May 1674 in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts, United States. John married 4, 5 Mary CHILTON on 12 Oct 1624 in Plymouth, Plymouth, Massachusetts, United States.

JOHN WINSLOW'S WILL AND INVENTORY.
LITERALLY TRANSCRIBED By GEORGE ERNEST BOWMAN.

John Winslow, son of Edward and Magdalen, and brother of Governor Edward Winslow, was born at Droitwich, England, on Saturday, 16/26 April, 1597, and baptized the following Monday. He died at Boston in New England, in the ten weeks between 12/22 March, 1673/4 and 21/31 May, 1674, the dates of making and probating his wilt, which is preserved in the files of the Suffolk County Registry of Probate, at Boston.

The transcript of the will was made from the original document, which is twenty-two and seven eighths inches high and seventeen and one eighth inches wide. It is in better condition, as the reproduction shows, than that of Mary (Chilton) Winslow, which we reproduced in our first volume. It is interesting to note that both wills were written, and witnessed, by John Hayward.

The original inventory is not in the files, and the copy was made from Volume V, pages 211 and 212, of the Probate Records.

This name on the early Barnstable records is written Eure, on the Colony records it is written Ure, Eue, Ewe, and Ewer. A Henry Eue was one of the first settlers in Sandwich. Dcc. 4, 1638, a warrant was directed to James Skiff, ordering him, to re-carry Henry Eue and his wife and their goods, to the place where he brought them. This warrant does not appear to have been executed, for in 1640 he was an inhabitant of Sandwich and had a share assigned to him in the division of the common meadows. Mr. Freeman's statement that he was the ancestor of the ,Ewer family of Sandwich, requires confirmation; because after 1640 his name disappears on the records. In 1643, there was a John Eue at Hartford; but it does not appear that he was connected with the Ewers of Massachusetts and plymouth.

"Thomas Ewer, aged 40, a tailor, embarked aboard the ship James, Jo. May, at London, June 19, 1635, for New England, with his wife Sarah, aged 28, and two children, Elizabeth, aged 4 years, and Thomas, aged 1 1/2 years. He had at least two older children, not named in the Custom House records, who came over subsequently, perhaps with their grandfather in 1638.

1. Thomas Ewer married Sarah, daughter of Mr. Robert Linnell, probably in London where he resided. It does not appear that he had any children born in this country. his children were

3. II. Henry, born April 1629, married Mary  , he died in 1652, and it is not known that he left issue. His widow became the second wife of John Jenkins 2d Feb. 1652-3.
4. III. Elizabeth, born 1631, died in Barnstable, and was buried 9th April 1641.
5. IV. Thomas, born 1633, married Hannah,  , and died in Barnstable in 1667, aged 34.
Thomas Ewer settled in Charlestown, where he acquired some notoriety as a politician. In 1637 Lord Ley brought a

charge against him for using language disrespectful to the King, and afterwards he was prosecuted as one of the friends and supporters of Wheelwright; but he recanted his opinions, proving himself not to be so firm a man as his son Thomas. He died in Charleston in 1638, and his widow Sarah married, Dee. 11, 1639, Thomas Lothrop. Her family removed with her to Barnstable.

    John Lathrop father of Thomas

    Origins:

    John Lathrop was born December 20, 1584 in Etton, Yorkshire, England. It is said the ancestral home of the Lathrop family is Lowthrope, England.

    Hannah House/Howse was from Eastwell, Kent, England.

    His English residences included: Etton 1584 > Egerton, Kent abt 1610 > 1623 London >

    See the Yorkshire, England and Kent, England Home Pages for more details about the ancestral homes of John and Hannah.

    Take English ancestries of him and his wife with a grain of salt. I have not dwelled much in that area, but have done enough to surmise there is not unanimous agreement on either his paternal or maternal ancestry.


The Immigrant:

    "John Lothropp has been ranked as one of the four most prominent colonial ministers in America.  His spiritual and political strength not only was emulated by his sons and daughters, but has been evidenced in the lives of thousands of his descendants in the past four centuries They include presidents of the United States, a prime minister of Canada, authors, financiers,  politicians, and last but certainly not least, key leaders among religious groups throughout the centuries and spanning the continent. "  "Biography of John Lothrop (1584-1653)", by Richard Price

    Founder of Barnstable, Mass: John Lathrop and his followers initially settled in Scituate, Mass. But, their religious differences with the inhabitants caused them to look elsewhere to live. Although, some individuals lived in the area of Barnstable, Plymouth Co, Mass, the moving of John Lathrop and his followers to Barnstable is considered the founding of the town. He lived there until he died, in 1653.

    Spouses:

    1) Hannah House/Howse, married October 10, 1610 in Eastwell, Kent, England. Eight children. Died in England before John and the children migrated. Eight children.

    2) Ann (___). This woman is not a Hammond, or a Hammond widow, as has been postulated. (See TGMB sketch on John Lathrop). It is possible that they married in England before immigration in 1634. Six children.

    Immigration: Immigrated, as widower, with eight children, on Griffin, arriving Sep 1634. Governor Winthrop's journal entry of Sept. 18, 1634: "The Griffin and another ship now arriving with about 200 passengers. Mr. Lathrop and Mr. Sims, two godly ministers coming in the same ship".

    See the passenger list of the Griffin.

    Persecuted in England:  "The Rev John Lothrop renounced his orders and resigned from his cure at Egerton abt 1623 to succeed Henry jacob as pastor of an independent colngregation was raided. [John] Lothrop and forty-one of his followers were seized and imprisoned, including Peninna and Samuel House, children of the Rev John House (NEHGS 69 [1914] :284).  In 1633, while [John] Lothrop was yet in prison, a dispute arose in his church. those who altogether rejected the established church and denied the ligitimacy of infant baptism were led away by John Spilsbury. John Lothrop's views were obviously less radical than Spilsbury's. Not only did infant baptism continue in his own churches in new England, but, as the above entries show, his sons Joseph and Benjamin were baptized at Eastwell in 1624 and 1626 respectively by their grandfather [Rev John] House, while John Lothrop was pastor of the independents at Southwark. John's eldest son Thomas was baptized at Eastwell on 21 Feb 1612/13, while he was curae at Egerton. (It was not unusual for the eldest child to be baptized in the wife's parish.)" The American Genealogist (TAG) Oct 1995 p251.

    Another Daughter: Elizabeth??  John possibly had a daughter Elizabeth whose birth was not recorded. From the court records of 1665 we find that "Whereas John Williams, Junr, appeered before the Court held att Plymouth the seaventh of June last past before the date heerof, to answare for his disorderly liveing with his wife, and his abusive carriages towards her both in words and actions, in speciall his sequestration of himselfe from the marriage bedd, and that notwithstanding the Court then tooke such order about it as was judged meet for present, yett the said Williams not attending that due reformation expected from him, wherby Mr Barnabas Laythorpe hath seen cause, in the behalfe of his sister and those related to her, to revive the former complaint, with some aditionall charges; to which the said Williams, though seeming to desire the tryall of such his guiltines or not guiltines might bee put on a jury of his peers, yett afterwards refused it when graunted to him by the Court; this Court, being earnestly desirous of a renewed closure of his hart and affections to his wife, and that his future conversation with her might bee better then his former, were willing to extend what lenitie might bee, and in reference therunto, with exhortation of him to amend his wayes respecting the promises, hee was released att the present". It seems that when Elizabeth became pregnant or bore a child, her husband John accused her of unfaithfulness. She was "by false reports and reproaches rendered as if shee were a dishonest woman, and that the child shee brought forth into the world was not legitimate". The court found no substance to the accusations and cleared her name. Source: John Lathrop (1584-1653) - Institute of Family Research, Inc., 1979.

    Who is Elizabeth [Scudder?], wife of Joseph3 Lathrop?

    Mary Scudder, wife of Joseph Lathrop - The origins of Mercy Scudder, who married Joseph Lathrop, seem to be in doubt. At least the information I have learned so far has not firmly attached her to a set of parents. See this GenForum Posting No 1 and GenForum Posting No 2 for more....
