Excerpts from "Mayflower Families through 5 generations vol. 13 - William White":
About 1638, the Winslow with young Peregrine and Resolved White, moved to Green Harbor, now called Marshfield. Edward Winslow rose to prominence as Governor of Plymouth Colony, became Colony representative to England, and at last was persuaded to use his diplomataic skills for Oliver Cromwell, heading up a joint commission with the Dutch to award reparations for damage caused to Danish ships.
No evidence had been found to indicate that Susanna accompanied her husband on any of his trips to England.
Edward Winslow spent the last six years of his life in England.
Excerpt from Mayflower Increasing:" Edward "fell sick at sea betwixt Domingo & Jamaica" .
Excerpts from "The Mayflower Quarterly, Sept. 2003":
Edward could be a grandson of Kenelm Winslow.
His first wife died shortly after the Pilgrims landed in Plymouth and his marriage to Susanna White, widow of William white of the Mayflower was the first marriage in Plymouth. Mrriages in Plymouth were a civil affair and in 1635 Edward Winslow was jailed for seventeen weeks in Fleet Prison in London when Archbishop Laud had him persecuted for solemizing marriages as a magistrate.
Edward Winslow was one of the company which first explored the shores of Cape Cod, was among those who first landed at Plymouth, and who selected Plymouth as the place of settlement. He was one of the principal leaders of Plymouth Colony, serving as Assistant many times and in 1633 he was elected Governor of the colony, its third governor after Carver and bradford. (Christopher Martin acted as Governor on the "Mayflower", but died shortly after the landing in Plymouth and is not considered to be one of the governors of the colony.) Edward was also elected Governor in 1636 and 1644.
In September 1623 Edward Winslow returned to England on the "Anne" to transact business for the colony and returned in March 1624 on the "Charity" with supplies and three heifers and a bull, the first cattle in Plymouth. In 1630 and 1635 he also made trips to England. In 1644 he was the commissioner for Plymouth to the newly formed Confederation of New England colonies.
In 1646 he went to England for the last time and accepted employment in Oliver Cromwell's government serving in several capacities. On 27 December 1654 Edward Winslow was appointed commissioner, along with Admiral William Penn and General Robert Venables, of the ill-fated expedition to the West Indies to capture the island of Hispaniola from the Spanish. Cromwell apparently expected the island to be settled by New Englanders. After the defeat at Santo Domingo, Edward Winslow died of a fever on the voyage from Hispaniola to Jamaica and was buried at sea.
Edward Winslow wrote his will 18 December 1654:
I Edward Winslowe of London, Esguior, being now bound on a voyage to sea in the service of the comon welth do make publish & declare this to be my last will & testamt touching the disposing of my estate. ffirst I doe give will devise & bequeath all my lands & stock in New England & all my possibilities & porcons in future allotmts & divicions to Josias my onely sonne & his heires, hee allowing to to my wife a full third parte thereof for her life Also.

Excerpts from "Mayflower Families through 5 Generations Vol 13 - William White":
Susanna (- - - )(White) Winslow was not the sister of Dr. Samuel Fuller as is often claimed. Samuel and Edward Fuller who came on the "Mayflower" were sons of Robert of Redenhall, England. Robert had no daughter Susanna. He did have a daughter Anna, born about 1578, far too old a bride for Edward Winslow who would not be born til 1595. The will of Robert Fuller in 1615 mentions no daught4er Susanna, nor a daughter married to William White. Dr. Samuel Fuller's will in 1633 mentions only one sister, Alice Bradford--actually his sister-in-law. The only positive clue to Susanna's ancestry seems to be a letter from Edward Winslow to "Uncle Robert Jackson" in 1623, in which he sent news of Susanna, her late husband, and her children. He also sent his regards to his father-in-law in England, by which time Rober Fuller was nine years dead. A cursory investigation of the Jackson family has she no light on the subject.
