Scituate Historical Society

Penelope Pelham Winslow was one of the most powerful women in Plymouth Colony’s history. A member of the English gentry (her third-great-grandmother was Anne Boleyn’s sister Mary), she was married to King Philip’s War-era Governor Josiah Winslow. Like most of her female contemporaries, however, she has largely been forgotten.

Historian and author Michelle Marchetti Coughlin recovers the story of Winslow’s eventful life tracking fragmentary records and surviving physical evidence and offers fresh insight into the experiences of women in early New England.

Reservations are recommended. Reserve Here.  Payment will also be accepted at the door.
