About Edward Winn

Edward Winn "evidently immigrated to Charlestown,Mass. in about 1635 with his wife and children. (Edward would have been about 35.) It is conjectured that he was a master builder or carpenter, and that Moses Cleveland was his apprentice and accompanied the family to Massachusetts. Moses married Edward's daughter Ann. Edward was one of the original planners of the town of Woburn on February 8, 1640. The first born child entered in the town's records was Increase, son of Edward Winn. He was made freeman on May 10, 1643. He was one of the leaders in town affairs for many years and a Selectman in 1669. Local records frequently mention his name as well as his many descendants, and there is a Winn street in Woburn."
