About Samuel Winsley

Mr. Sam Winsley of Salisbury "planter." One of the twelve who obtained the grant to begin a plantation at Merrimack in 1638.

His parents are unknown.

Robert Charles Anderson in 2015 in The Great Migration Directory (p 380) said that Samuel Winsely came from Saxmundham, Suffolk, in 1638. He has said that an article about Samuel Winsley is forthcoming in NEHGR. I hope that means we are going to be getting an English Origins story soon:

"GMDIR p 380 Saxmundham, Suffolk, 1638; Salisbury; MBCR 1:237, 277, 375, SyTR 1; Essex Ant 2:49; 11:31; EPR 2:82-84; Hoyt 363-64; NEHGR Forthcoming"

Up until now his parents and origins have been unknown. He is not the son of John Winslow and Mary Paddy.

According to Torrey he married twice:
