Gilbert Winslow was twenty years old when he came on the Mayflower with his older brother, Edward Winslow. Other brothers, Kenelm, John & Josiah also later came to New England. Gilbert signed the "Mayflower Compact" in Nov 1620. William Bradford recorded that Gilbert Winslow lived in Plymouth for "divers years" before he "returned into England and died there".

Gilbert's burial & probate administration were only recently discovered at Ludlow, Shropshire, England, where his estate was valued at just over 30 Pounds. It was administered by brother Edward.

In 1663, the Plymouth Court acknowledged Gilbert Winslow, deceased, was a first-comer and his heirs could seek out and purpose a plot of land to the Court. The estate inventory of Kenelm Winslow, another brother, mentions that he and his brother John were granted Gilbert Winslow's land in New England.
