Edward Winslow (1595 – 1655) was an American Pilgrim leader on the Mayflower. He served as the governor of Plymouth Colony in 1633, 1636, and finally in 1644. He was born in Droitwich, Worcestershire, England, on October 18, 1595. In 1617 he removed to Leiden, united with John Robinson’s church there, and in 1620 was one of the “pilgrims” who emigrated to New England on the Mayflower and founded the Plymouth colony.
