About Col. Edward Winslow

Edward Winslow Born: 1 Nov 1669, Boston MA Christened: 19 Nov 1671, Boston MA. Died: 1 Dec 1753, Boston MA. Silversmith.

  • Marriage (1): Hannah Moody on 30 Jun 1692 in Boston MA
  • Marriage (2): Elizabeth Pemberton on 22 May 1712 in Boston MA
  • Marriage (3): Susanna Layman (unconfirmed)

Noted events in his life were:

  • Apprenticed about 1682 to Jeremiah Dummer in Boston MA 1
  • He worked from circa 1689 to 1750 as a silversmith in Boston MA
  • Owing to the great richness of his four known sugar boxes, it was at one time thought that he had served his apprenticeship in London. He held so many positions in the colony that one wonders how he had time to fashion the silver known to be from his forge.
  • He was an active member of the Old South Church, Boston, of which, with his wife Hannah, daughter of Rev. Joshua Moody, he became a member in 1692. He was listed as a communicant of the Brattle Street Church in 1741.

His three dishes for the Second Church in Boston, made in 1711, are unique in all published silver; and his baptismal basin, the gift of Adam Winthrop to the same church in 1706, is the earliest New England one made for this purpose (Dummer's and Coney's were domestic originally). Samuel Sewall records purchasing in 1713 /14 six silver spoons from Captain Winslow "cost about 21s. a piece" and "January 16, 1721 /22: I went to his Excellency and presented him with a Ring wt 3p and 3 grains cost 3 5 s. and 3 d. with this Motto Post tenebras Lucem Jan 7 1721/22: respecting the Darkness of the Small Pocks, and our Divisions; which his Excellency received very graciously in Mr. Sergeant's Counting Room. Capt. Winslow made it". In 1736 the estate of Mary Mico paid him £37 8s. for eighteen rings, indicating prolonged activity. Although he decreed that his household plate be sold to meet legacies and expenses of his estate, a sugar box and a tankard of his fashioning, the latter with his coat of arms, descended in the family until this generation and are now owned respectively by the Yale University Art Gallery, Garvan Collection, and Phillips Academy, Addison Gallery of American Art in Andover,
