    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from Winslow in Buckinghamshire. The placename derives from the Old English personal name Wine (genitive Wines) + Old English hlāw ‘mound, hill’.

    History: Edward Winslow (1595–1655), one of the founders of the Plymouth Colony who sailed on the Mayflower in 1620, was born in Droitwich, Worcestershire, England. He was a governor of the colony and also served as agent of the Massachusetts Bay Company in France. In 1621 he married Susanna, the widow of William White, the first marriage in New England. Their son Josiah (c. 1629–80) was governor of Plymouth Colony from 1673 to 1680, the first native-born governor in North America. He had numerous prominent descendents.
