Edward Winslow was baptized at Droitwich, co. Worcester, England, Oct 20
1595 and died May 8, 1655 in about the sixty-first year of his life. He
was the son of Edward and Magdalene (Oliver) Winslow. Brothers Gilbert
(who came on the Mayflower, but returned to England and there died--no
known issue), John, Josias and Kenelm all came to Plymouth. At the time
of his marriage in Leiden, he was called a printer of London. His first
wife died the first winter shortly after the Pilgrims landed. He died on
a voyage from Hispaniola to Jamaica and was buried at sea.

p23: "The records of the family of Edward Winslow are found in the Parish Register of St
Peter's, Droitwich, which, however, extend no further back than 1560. A very completely
made copy, by Win. S. Appleton, is found in the New England Historical and Genealogical
Register of 1867; Vol. XXI, p. 210. For important purposes we here copy it, with
insertions of our own in brackets:
1595. [Monday,] October 20. Edward Wynsloe sonne of Edward Wynsloe was baptized & borne
the xviiith of October being Saterdaye."
