Elizabeth (Barker) Winslow

Elizabeth Barker married Edward Winslow in Leiden, Holland, on 16 May 1618, and came with him on the Mayflower to Plymouth in 1620.  In their marriage banns, Elizabeth is called a spinster from "Chatsum in England," which some have taken to mean Chattisham, Suffolk; but there are a number of other phonetically-similar parishes that could also be her home.  Searches of many of them have yet to yield any conclusive identification.  The marriage banns were witnessed by Janie Hazel, a cousin or neice, and Mary Allerton, also a witness for the bride.  Elizabeth died late the first winter at Plymouth, on 24 March 1621.
