Elizabeth Barker Winslow
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1597
Suffolk, England
Death: Mar. 24, 1621
Plymouth County
Massachusetts, USA

First wife of Gov. Edward Winslow, whom she married in May 1618 at Leiden, Holland. She accompanied him on the Mayflower in 1620, and died soon after their arrival in Plymouth. Also accompanying them were their children, George Soule, a teacher for the children, and Elias Story, a servant.

Elizabeth Barker married Edward Winslow April 27, 1618 in Leiden, Holland. In the marriage record, Edward Winslow is listed as a printer from London. At the time, the Pilgrims in Leiden were printing propaganda pamphlets and sending them back to England. The marriage record may be referring to that activity. Elizabeth is said to have been from "Chatsum" England but no supporting evidence has been found. She was most likely in her early 20's when they sailed to America. Edward became a sort of ambassador to the natives but was taken hostage by the Indians during one of his visits March 22, 1621. Two days later, Elizabeth died, leaving behind no known children. Two months later, Edward remarried to Susanna White.
