[5570] "English Burial and Estate Administration of Gilbert Winslow"
Neil D. Thompson
TAG v81, p246 (Jul 2006)
"It is of interest that in this same parish of Ludlow [Shropshire] we find the baptism on
21 October 1626 of a bastard daughter of Magdalene Winsley/Winslow named Alice. Was this
the same Magdalen Winslow (1604-1693), the sister of the five immigrating Winslow
brothers, who on 25 April 1627 married [the Rev.] William Wake at Kempsey, co. Worcester,
having temporarily left her home parish to conceal the birth of an illegitimate child? We
do not know. No other references to this family appear in the Ludlow parish register."

"Mayflower Winslows: Yeomen or Gentlemen?"
John G. Hunt
NEHGR v121 pp25-29 (Jan 1967)
"The youngest daughter was Magdalene, 1604-1693, who stayed in England and whose grandson,
William Wake, 1657-1737, became Archbishop of Canturbury in 1716... It is, therefore, of
some interest to note the actual words of Wake with regard to his grandmother and her
father: he stated: 'My grandfather, Mr. William Wake... was born in St. Margarets
Westminster... 1598... He soon after married my grandmother upon St. Mark's Day April 25th
1627... was born December 26th 1604; her name was Magdalene... dyed in my Father's house
at Shapwick in Dorset, May 25th 1693. She was buried in the Tomb of my uncle Edward Wake
at Charlton, about two miles from Shapwick'..."
