About Joseph Winslow

  • John Winslow (1597–1674) was born April 16, 1597 in Droitwich, Worcestershire, England.[1] He died between March 12, 1673/4 and May 21, 1674 in Boston, Massachusetts Bay Colony. At the time of his death he was one of the wealthiest merchants in Boston. Both he and his wife were buried in King’s Chapel Burying Ground in Boston. They both left wills that survive today.[2][3] [4][5] ....
  • John Winslow married Mary Chilton between 1623 and May 22, 1627, in Plymouth and had ten children. She had been baptized in St. Peter's Parish, Sandwich, Kent, England on May 31, 1607, and she died between July 31, 1676 and May 1, 1679 in Boston. In 1620 Mary and her parents had come to Plymouth as passengers on the Mayflower. Her parents died the first winter, with her father, James Chilton, named on several memorials in Provincetown in honor of those who were the earliest to die on board the Mayflower in November and December 1620. Tradition has it that Mary Chilton was the first Mayflower passenger to step ashore on Plymouth Rock.[26][27][28]
  • Children of John and Mary Winslow, all born in Plymouth after May 22, 1627
    • John was born about 1627 and died in Boston between October 3 and 12, 1683. His name appears with his mother Mary on the 1627 Division of Cattle list for Plymouth, with the father John named on a separate list. He married: 1. Elizabeth ____ before April 18, 1664 (birth of first child) and had four children, all born in Boston. No record of her after August 7, 1670. 2. Judith ____ after August 7, 1670.

Reports from the records of the Plymouth coroner’s jury on January 31, 1654/5 details an event that is termed one of the most extreme cases of a master mistreating a servant in that colony. This involved Susanna and her husband Robert Latham. From the records the case details a systemic abuse of 14 year old John Walker, apparently an indentured servant, who died with a battered, bruised, starved and frozen body at the fault of his master and mistress. His master Robert Latham admitted whipping him “all his backe with stripes given him by his master, Robert Latham, as Robert himself did testify..” and testimony from witnesses revealed that “hee (Latham) gave John Walker som stripes that morning before his death; and also wee find the flesh much broken of the knees of John Walker, and that he did want sufficient food and clothing and lodging..”[29] On March 4, 1654/5 Robert Latham was indicted for felonious cruelty to his servant John Walker by unreasonable correction, by withholding necessary food and clothing, and by exposing Walker to extremities of the seasons, whereby he died. The trial jury found him guilty of “manslaughter by chaunce medley” and he was sentenced to be burned in the hand, and having no lands, to have all his personal property confiscated. Latham’s wife Susanna was presented by the grand jury for being in great measure guilty with her husband in exercising extreme cruelty toward their late servant John Walker.[30] **Mary was born about 1631-32 and died after October 28, 1663, and before November 1665 in Plymouth.
