from http://mayflowerhistory.com/white-susanna/ (historian Caleb Johnson's website)

Susanna White's origins, and maiden name, are unknown.  The claim she was Susanna Tilley has been disproven, and the William White who married Anna Fuller in Leiden is now generally believed to not have been the Mayflower passenger.  That particular William White witnessed an antenumptual agreement of Samuel Lee in Leiden in April 1621, and witnessed the marriage of Sarah Priest in October 1621, and so couldn't have been the Mayflower passenger.  So, Mrs. Susanna White's identity and English origins remain unknown. 

Susanna came on the Mayflower with husband William, and son Resolved.  She was pregnant, and gave birth to son Peregrine while the Mayflower was still anchored off the tip of Cape Cod.  Her husband William died the first winter, and she remarried a few months later to fellow Mayflower passenger Edward Winslow.  Their marriage in May 1621 was the first marriage at Plymouth.  Susanna was one of only four adult women to have survived to see the "First Thanksgiving" at Plymouth that autumn.  Susanna died sometime after 1654, when she is mentioned in her husband's will.

Susanna White Winslow in the records of the 17th century

Susanna White in Leiden, Holland

"Foller, En (Anne or Susanna Fuller) of England, acc[ompanied]. by Rosem Jepson (Rosamond Jepson nee Horsfield) and Sara Pryst (Sarah Priest nee Allerton) betr[othed]. 27 Jan. 1612, mar[ried]. 11 Febr. 1612 to Willem With (William White) of England, Wool-comber, acc[ompanied]. by Willem Jepson (William Jepson) and Samuell Fulle (Samuel Fuller) his acq[uaintance].

[Compare with William White's entry :]

"With, Willem of England, Wool-comber, acc. by Willem Jopsen and Samuel Folle his acq. betr. 27 Jan. 1612, mar. 26 Febr. 1612 to En Foller of England, acc. by Rosemen Jepson and Sara Pryst her acq."

Johanna W. Tammel, The Pilgrims and other people

from the British Isles in Leiden (Isle of Man :

Mansk-Svenska Publishing Co., Ltd., 1989), p. 95 and 291.

Most authorities, however, believe that this "En Foller" was NOT Susanna White Winslow at all. The confusion arises from the presence of more than one William White in Leiden. At least one William White was still living in Leiden after Pilgrim William White had died in Plymouth in early 1621.

Another clue to Susanna’s identity may be found in a letter written by Edward Winslow to his uncle (NEHGR 1955:242-3) :

"almost two years since I wrote to my father-in-law declaring the death of his son White & the continued health of his daughter and her two children; also how that by God’s providence she was become my wife… My wife hath had one child by me, but it pleased him that gave it to take it again unto himself; I left her with child at my departure (whom God preserve) but hope to be with her before her delivery."

"Feb. 21 [1621]. Die Mr. William White, Mr. William Mullins, with two more ...

"March 24 [1621]. Dies Elizabeth, the wife of Mr. Edward Winslow ...

"May 12 [1621]. The first marriage in this place, is of Mr. Edward Winslow to Mrs. Susanna White, widow of Mr. William White."

Thomas Prince's New England Chronology as reprinted in :

Nathaniel Morton, New England's Memorial (Boston :

Congregational Board of Publication, 1855), p. 289, 291, 292.

[Note: May 12 is "Old Style" dating. Using today's calendar, the marriage took place on May 22.]

"May 12 was the first marriage in this place which, according to the laudable custom of the Low Countries, in which they had lived, was thought most requisite to be performed by the magistrate, as being a civil thing, upon which many questions about inheritances do depend, with other things most proper to their cognizance and most consonant to the Scriptures (Ruth iv) and nowhere found in the Gospel to be laid on the ministers as a part of their office."

William Bradford, Of Plymouth Plantation 1620-1647, ed.

Samuel Eliot Morison (New York : Knopf, 1991), p. 86.

"And seeing it hath pleased Him to give me [William Bradford] to see thirty years completed since these beginnings, and that the great works of His providence are to be observed, I have thought it not unworthy my pains to take a view of the decreasings and increasings of these persons and such changes as hath passed over them and theirs in this thirty years ...

"Mr. Edward Winslow his wife died the first winter, and he married with the widow of Mr. White and hath two children living by her, marriageable, besides sundrey that are dead ...

"Mr. White and his two servants died soon after their landing. His wife married with Mr. Winslow, as is before noted. His two sons are married and Resolved hath five children, Peregrine two, all living. So their increase is seven."

Susanna White Winslow & the 1627 Division of Cattle

Plymouth Colony Records, Deeds, &c, Vol. 1 1627-1651 is the oldest record book of the Plymouth settlement. It tells of the 1627 Division of Cattle :

"At a publique court held the 22th of May it was concluded by the whole Companie, that the cattell wch were the Companies, to wit, the Cowes & the Goates should be equally devided to all the psonts of the same company ... & so the lotts fell as followeth, thirteene psonts being pportioned to one lot ...

"To this lot fell the Red Cow wch belongeth to the poore of the Colonye to wch they must keepe her Calife of this yeare being a Bull for the Companie. Also to this lott Came too she goats."

Susanna White Winslow

Susanna's name appears in the will of John Jenney, dated 1644 : "whereas Abigaile my eldest Daughter had somewhat given her by her grandmother and Henry Wood of Plymouth aforesaid is a suter to her in way of marriage my will is that if shee the said Abigaile will Dwell one full yeare w'th mr Charles Chauncey of Scittuate before her marriage ... And in case mr Chauncey be against it then I would have her dwell w'th m'ris Winslowe of Careswell the said terme of one yeare ffurther"

Mayflower Descendant, Vol. 1, p. 169-170.

The last mention of Susanna White Winslow is in her husband Edward Winslow's will (Somerset House, London) :

"I Edward Winslowe of London. Esquior. being now bound in a voyage to sea in the service of the comon welth do make publish & declare this to be my last will and testam't touching the disposing of my estate. ffirst I doe give will devise & bequeath all my lands & stock. in New England & all my possibilities & porcons in future allotm'ts & divicons to Josia my. onely sonne & his heires, hee allowing to my wife. a full third parte thereof for her life Also ...

Marriage Notes:

   Willian and Susanna were passengers on the Mayflower, and the mother of Peregrine White, born while the ship lay at anchor in Cape Cod harbor.
   The "Mayflower Descendants" published a transcript of the marriage records. The following is the record in England: "Entered XXVI Jan. 1612. William White, wool comber, unmarried man, from England, accompanied by William Jepson and Samuel Fuller, his acquaintances, with Ann Fuller, single woman, also from England, accompanied by Rosamond Jepson and Sarah Priest, her acquaintances. They were married before Jasper Van Bamhem and William Cornelius. Tybault, sheriffs, this 11th Feb. 1612." The banns were entered at the recording office January 27, 1612, and published on the following three Saturdays, January 28, February 4 and 11, as shown by the entries. See Leyden Records, book B, folio 8. One child, Resolved, was born in Leyden. They came in the "Mayflower" and their second child, Peregrine, was born on board the ship in Cape Cod harbor in November, 1620. They brought two servants (apprentices), William Holbeck and Edward Thomson, both of whom died soon after landing. White died, February 21, 1621-22, and his widow married (second) Governor Edward Winslow, who also came in the "Mayflower." She died October 1, 1680. Both Resolved and Peregrine had many descendants.

Most authorities, however, believe that this "En Foller" was NOT Susanna White Winslow at all. The confusion arises from the presence of more than one William White in Leiden. At least one William White was still living in Leiden after Pilgrim William White had died in Plymouth in early 1621.

Another clue to Susanna’s identity may be found in a letter written by Edward Winslow to his uncle (NEHGR 1955:242-3) :

Mayflower

--------------------

Susana White arrived in America in 1620 with her husband and son as documented in Mayflower Families Through Five Generations, Volume Thirteen, Third Edition, William White, published by General Society of Mayflower Descendants 2006.

--------------------

Mayflower

--------------------

She remarried 12 May 1621 to Edward Winslow.

Died between 1654 and 1675.

--------------------

William Bradford wrote that William White came on the Mayflower with his wife "Susanna". There is a marriage record in Leyden on 27 January 1612 for a William White, woolcomber, and an "Anna" Fuller, sister of Samuel Fuller. The marriage was witnessed by Sarah Priest and Samuel Fuller. This record, however, does not relate to the Mayflower passenger, as commonly claimed. The reasons for this conclusion are as follows:

   * A William White had Sarah Priest witness his marriage; a William White in 1621 witnessed the marriage of Sarah Priest.  However, the William White of the Mayflower was dead in America and could not have witnessed Sarah Priest's marriage.  It would therefore appear that this is not the William White who came on the Mayflower.
   * Susanna, widow of William White, married second Edward Winslow.  Anna Fuller was baptized in 1577, and Edward Winslow in 1595.  It is most unlikely that 25-year old Edward Winslow would marry a woman 18 years older than him for his first wife.
   * Children of William White were buried in infancy in 1613, 1615, and 1616.  These deaths indicate it would be most unlikely they had a child Resolved in 1615. 

Susanna, wife of William White, is not Susanna Tilley either, another common claim. That "theory" was disproved in Pilgrim Notes & Queries 1:1.

--------------------

Mrs. Susanna White's identity and English origins remain unknown.Susanna White was a member of the Leiden Separatist community. She and her husband, William, and their 5 year old son, Resolved, were passengers on the Mayflower. Susanna gave birth to another son, Peregrine, in December 1620 while the Mayflower was anchored in Provincetown, MA harbor. Peregrine was the first child born to the Pilgrims in New England.

When Susanna came on the Mayflower with husband William, and son Resolved, she was 7 months pregnant. Her husband, William, died the first winter, and she remarried a few months later to fellow Mayflower passenger Edward Winslow. Their marriage on May 12, 1621 was the first marriage at Plymouth Colony. Susanna was one of only four adult women to have survived to see the "First Thanksgiving" at Plymouth that autumn. Susanna died sometime after 1654, when she is mentioned in her husband's will.

-------------------- See Mayflower Families Through Five Generations, Volume Thirteen, Third Edition, William White, copyright 2006, General Society of Mayflower Descendants, 4 Winslow Street, Plymouth, MA 02360. Although Mrs. Susanna White had at one time been identified as the sister of Dr. Samuel Fuller, that identity has been challenged in the 2006 edition of MF13. -------------------- The Mayflower passenger list shows "M William White, and Susana his wife; and one sone caled rasolued and one borne a ship-bord, caled perigriene; 2 servants named William Holbeck, Edward Thomson". Later on in 1651, Governor Bradford adds that Mr. White and his two servents died soon after their landing and that Susana married another Mayflower passenger, Mr. Winslow (1st Governor Plymouth Colony).

William and Susanna White left England with their son Resolved. At Cape Cod, November 11, 1620 according to the old calendar, William was one of the 49 signers of the Mayflower Compact. Two or three weeks later son Peregrine was born, the first English birth in Plymouth Colony. Susanna was widowed in February and then went on to become the first colony bride in May when she married Edward Winslow, who had also lost his spouse a few weeks before. At least 5 children were born to them.

Then in 1638, the Winslows with Peregrine and Resolved, moved to Green Harbor, now called Marshfield.
