General John Winslow1

b. 10 May 1703, d. 17 April 1774
Father*Colonel Isaac Winslow2 b. 1670, d. 14 Dec 1738
Mother*Sarah Wensley2 b. 11 Aug 1673, d. 16 Dec 1753
Birth*10 May 1703John Winslow was born on 10 May 1703 in Marshfield, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).3
Marriage*1726He married Mary Little, daughter of Isaac Little and Mary Otis, in 1726.2,4
Biographical Info* He was the Captain of a provincial company in the expedition against Cuba in 1740 and led the New England troops as a Colonel when they took Louisburgh in 1744. In 1754 he was promoted, by Governor William Shirley, to Major-General in the British service.5,6,3
French & Indian War*1755 In 1755, John Winslow was appointed lieutenant-colonel of a provincial regiment raised by Shirley to aid Lieutenant Governor Charles Lawrence of Nova Scotia in his attempts to sweep the French influence from the province, and he played an important role at the capture of Fort Beauséjour in June 1755. Winslow was then ordered to proceed to Grand-Pré, Nova Scotia, to remove the Acadian population, as part of the infamous Great Upheaval. Although often believed solely responsible for carrying out the deportation, Winslow was in charge of only one segment of a much larger operation. On 5 September 1755 he informed the assembled Acadian men that they and their families were to be removed from the province. Winslow termed the business “Very Disagreeable to my natural make & Temper,” in his “Journal of Colonel John Winslow of the provincial troops, while engaged in removing the Acadian French inhabitants from Grand Pre”. The numerous delays in arranging transports caused the deportation to take far longer than had been anticipated, but by November he had shipped 1,510 Acadians to Pennsylvania, Maryland, and other British colonies to the south. Among those soldiers serving under Winslow in Nova Scotia were Benjamin Price and John Bolton of Bridgewater.3,1
Retirement*1757General John Winslow retired from the military in 1757. He returned to Massachusetts and a civilian life, representing Marshfield in the General Court from 1757 to 1758 and from 1761 to 1765. In 1762 he served as a member of the St Croix River boundary commission.3
Marriage*He married second, late in his life and as her second husband, ______ (Barker) Johnson of Hingham.2
Relocation*1766 Around 1766, he moved to Hingham, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).3
Death*17 April 1774He died on 17 April 1774 in Hingham at age 70.3
