d.BET 1654 AND 1675
Facts and Events
Susanna came on the Mayflower with husband William, and son Resolved. She was pregnant, and gave birth to son Peregrine while the Mayflower was still anchored off the tip of Cape Cod. Her husband William died the first winter, and she remarried a few months later to fellow Mayflower passenger Edward Winslow. Their marriage in May 1621 was the first marriage at Plymouth. Susanna was one of only four adult women to have survived to see the "First Thanksgiving" at Plymouth that autumn. Susanna died sometime after 1654, when she is mentioned in her husband's will.
Susanna (_____) (White) Winslow was not, as often claimed, sister of SAMUEL and EDWARD FULLER [MF 1:96, 5:7; NEHGR 110:182-83]. (The resolution of this problem fundamentally comes down to the question of whether the William White who married Ann Fuller, sister of Samuel Fuller, at Leiden in 1612 was identical with the William White who came to Plymouth in 1620. They are generally believed not have been the same William and (Sus)anna. That particular William White witnessed an antenumptual agreement of Samuel Lee in Leiden in April 1621, and witnessed the marriage of Sarah Priest in October 1621, and so he couldn't have been the Mayflower passenger. In 2000, however, Jeremy D. Bangs revisited the problem and argued that the possibility that the two William Whites were identical could not be dismissed, and in fact that it was more likely than not that they were identical [NEHGR 154:109-18, 244].)
