More information

Edward Winslow was baptized on October 20, 1595 in Droitwich, Worcestershire. His parents were Edward Winslow (1560-1620) and Magdalene Oliver/Ollyver (b. 1566). His father was a salt extractor. In 1613 Edward Winslow was apprenticed to a London printer. His wife was Elizabeth Barker.



In 1617 Edward Winslow traveled to Leiden, Holland and worked with William Brewster as a printer. By publishing religious tracts critical of the English king and his bishops, Brewster ran afoul of the English government. King James I ordered Brewster’s arrest, and when the king’s men came to seize him, he was forced into hiding, first in Holland and later in England. This was at a critical time for the Leideners, as their preparations for their voyage to America had entered a critical phase and Elder Brewster’s guidance was badly needed.
