John Winslow Family
From History of Perquimans County by Ellen Goode Rawlings Winslow.
For the convenience of those not acquainted with the record, and where the
ones needed are to be found, the following is here printed, taken from
Winslow Memorial, Vol I, Chart V.
John Winslow, m Agnes (d of John Thogmorton Esq) of Kemsey 1400-20, was
father of Kenelm above, issue: Edward, of Kempsey, & Droitwich, Co
Worcester, England, b Oct 18, 1575, d May 8, 1655, in Parish of St
Andrews, who had issue by 2d wife Magdaline Olliver: 1 Edward, b Oct 19,
1595 (1st Gov of Mass) 2 John, b April 16, 1597, d 1674, age 78, m Oct 12,
1624 Mary Chilton (d of James, who came over in the Mayflower). Her will
July 24, 1676.
John Winslow came to New England in the “Fortune” Nov 3, 1621, settled in
Plymouth, Mass, and moved to Boston 1656. He was a prominent merchant, and
large ship-builder. He had by wife Mary (Chilton), 1 Elizabeth, 2 John,
who died 1731, m Abigail Atkinson (d of Theodore) June 18, 1689, issue: 1
Elizabeth, b April 23, 1692—2 John, b Dec 31, 1693, m Sarah Pierce Sept 21,
1721, died Oct 15, 1731—3 Judith, 4 Joseph (age not given) m Sarah Lawrence
(d of Major Thomas Lawrence of New Town L. I.) Living in Perq Co N. C.
1677-79, where he served as “foreman of the Petit Jury” when acting Gov
Thomas Miller was tried for treason, between the said dates. He is called
in the Col Records of N. C. “another New England Traider.” The question
naturally arises in the mind of any thinking person; would it not be the
usual custom for a man of John Winslow’s wealth, a merchant and ship-
builder, to fit out one of his own ships, with his own goods, and put his
son Joseph in command as Captain? Certainly the ship he commanded “Traded”
between the Ports of New England, and the ports of Carolina, or he would
not have been designated as a “New Eng Traider.” This is, however, a moot
point, for which no one has been able to find a satisfactory solution.
Joseph Winslow, son of John, & Mary (Chilton) had two children whose ages
are given in Savages Dictionary, prior to this date, and may we not, with
some foundation, come to the conclusion that Thomas Winslow of Perq, who
was of age in 1702, may have been his youngest son, probably born after
his death, for Joseph Winslow died in New England 1679. In the absence of
proof, we will leave that unsettled question to future generations for
solving. No one could serve on a jury, in the Province of N. C. without
being a resident of the colony, and having in their possession at least
100a of land, therefore we know he was living in the County, between
1677-79, and it is supposed he would naturally have his family here with
him. He probably died in New England on one of his Trading trips. However
this may be, we pass on to Thomas Winslow, first in Perq according to
records still extant. John Winslow had a grant for land in New Kent Co Va
1669. As the records of New Kent have been destroyed by fire, no further
mention of said John is made, but it is probable that he was ancestor of
the Spotsylvania Winslows, and also the ones found in Essex Co Va, where
a Thomas Winslow, with wife Ann, made a deed 1694. Although the writer has
made diligent search in Virginia, for some connection between these
Winslows, & the family who moved to Perq, no results have rewarded her
efforts. The theory still clings that Joseph of New Eng, was the
progenitor of the N. C. Winslows, and it seems the most plausible
conclusion, in face of all the facts.
Thomas Winslow of Perq, proved his freedom “from Timothy Clare” in 1702.
He was either an apprentice to said Timothy, or had been imported by him
to the Province of N. C., for which he had to serve for a certain length
of time. From the fact that he soon after this date m Elizabeth Clare (d
of Timothy, & wife Mary (Bundy) we are led to believe he came of age at
that time. The date of marriage can not be found. For some reason unknown
to the writer the Winslows did not have their early marriages recorded,
although there was an old record book kept by the Reg of Deeds in Perq,
no Winslows appear therein. Therefore no dates can be furnished for them,
until they became Quakers, which was not until said Thomas m Elizabeth
Clare. The Winslows of New England were Episcopalians, and the supposition
is that Thomas adhered to the same faith, & changed on arrival in Perq,
from association with his wife’s family.
The will of Thomas Winslow, p in Perq, Jan 1745. Sons: Thomas, Timothy,
John, Job, to whom he left “a plan’ in Pasq Co, near Newbegun Creek,”
dau’s Elizabeth, & Miriam.
According to legal papers in Perq, Thomas Winslow was m to Elizabeth Clear
(who was b Feb 21, 1686,) before 1705.
Winslow, Thomas (1) did not have a son Joseph, according to “Grimes,” but
in N. C. Historical and Genealogical Reg, a variance is noted, which gives
said Thomas, a son by that name, and the deeds in Perq make plain the fact
that Joseph (1) was his son. There is also a difference in the dau’s
mentioned in these two books, Grimes giving the dau’s as: Elizabeth, &
Miriam, and Hathaway as: Elizabeth, & Christian. The writer is not up on
the daughters, but she is morally certain that Thomas Winslow (1) had a
son by the name of Joseph. A Thomas Winslow m Leah Smith (widow of
Joseph), 1734. (See deeds Perq Co.) She was his widow soon after. Who this
Thomas was, and where he stood in the line of the family, is an unsolved

Ridge,” wife Pleasant. (See deeds in this book for more information about
this family.) Joseph Winslow, had a grt for land in Perq, 225a, granted at
a Council in Edenton, Mar 11, 1740. He was living in Balahack, Jan 3,
1745-6 and bought of Samuel Newby 250a, adj “his own line” on that date.

TIMOTHY WINSLOW LINE
Winslow, Jacob (1) Timothy (1) Thomas (1), m Elizabeth —? The ages of his
children have not been found, although the Quaker records may hold them.
A thorough search of these records, kept in the vault at Guilford College,
might reveal much valuable data on the Winslow family, if they were open
to the public, and one had plenty of time to examine them. However we have
Jacob Winslows Will, which was p in Perq, Jan 1771, with his sons named as
follows: William, Jacob (2) Obed, and dau’s: Mary, Millicent, Wife
Nathaniel Welch in his will Perq, p 1789, names “daughter Elizabeth
Winslaw, but as several Elizabeth Winslows appear in Perquimans county, it
is not positive proof that this indicates the wife of Jacob. Besides,
Jacob Winslows wife Elizabeth, died before this date, and it was not
customary for a person to be named in a will, after death. Her will p in
Perq, Jan 1785, names dau Mary Saunders, & Millicent Lamb (wife of
Restore), sons: William, & Jacob, dau Betty. Benjamin Saunders, & Restore
Lamb Exrs. Jacob Winslow lived in “Piney Woods” district, near the Chowan
line, and his home, a quaint old residence with many wings, & cubby rooms,
was still in use a few years ago, having descended through several
generations to Mrs. Elisha Copeland, d of Francis, & Rachel Winslow (s of
William Winslow, & wife Pleasant née White). The old rambling house after
her death was demolished, and a new and more modern residence arose on the

William Winslow made his will in Chowan Co, p June 1806. Wife Pleasant,
sons: Obed, Jacob, Francis, William, John, Josiah, dau’s: Liddy, Mary, &
Elizabeth. Exrs, Caleb Winslow, Restore Lamb, Jacob Winslow, & Joseph
Copeland. He lived on the edge of Perquimans, and his grand-son Francis
(2) made his home in early married life at a place called “Snow Hill” just
across the line in Perquimans. Here were born the four little boys,
Edward, Tudor, Watson, & Cook, who took an active part in later life in
the public affairs of said county. The Winslows are too numerous to trace
out all the various family connections, in their many ramifications, and
also there is not sufficient data, to make them clear, but this much is
certain, both and all branches of this wonderful family, trace back to
either Thomas (1) son of Joseph, or John (1) who is supposed to have been
brother of said Thomas. Any one wishing to find the data relative to his
or her own particular branch, should find no difficulty in tracing them
on the splendid records in Perq, where every known Winslow figures at some
time or other.
Excursus. Cannon: John Cannon came to New England in “Fortune” with John
Winslow 1620. Such records prove that the two families were known to each
other before migrating to Perq Precinct. “Robert Cannon of New England
died at Mr Durants, Jan 1, 1690.” Wm Townsend m Rachel Winslow (widow of

JOHN WINSLOW LINE
John Winslow (1) contemporary of Thomas (1) is thought to be his brother,
but there is no actual proof of the fact. This John m Esther Snelling (d
of Israel, & Hannah, née “Larance.” d of William Lawrence, & “Rachell
Welsh”) Hannah Snelling m 2d Timothy Clare, his 3d and last wife, by whom
she had one dau Hannah. From this we see that John Winslow m the
step-sister of Elizabeth Clare, who was the wife of Thomas Winslow. (See
wills of Timothy Clare, 1724, and his last wife Hannah, 1726 (Grimes).
John Winslow (brother of Thomas) will p in Perq, Jan 25, 1753, names sons:
Benjamin, Israel, John, & Joseph, dau’s: Elizabeth, Hannah, & Esther, wife
The 2d John, whom it seems certain was nephew of John (1), made his will
also in Perq Co, p July 1754, naming sons: Josiah, Thomas, & Samuel, dau
Miriam, and wife Mary (d of Peter Pearson) therefore we make this
distinction, so there will be no confusion of the two Johns, who come so
