The first Winslow in America was Edward Winslow (1598-1655) who arrived on the Mayflower in 1620. He served for a time as governor of the newly founded colony and acted as ambassador for the small Plymouth colony. He later was influential in the Cromwell government in England traveling several times between America and England. Edward died at sea on one of those journeys and was buried in Jamaica leaving behind five children. One of his children was Josiah Winslow (1628-1680) who served in government and in the military as the first American-born general in the colonies. His descendants continued to hold political, social and military prominence in Massachusetts and New England for a number of generations.
