Biographical history

John Douglas Winslow, born in Woodstock, New Brunswick, was a direct descendant of Governor Edward Winslow, who landed with the Pilgrims at Plymouth in 1620. Governor Winslow's great-great grandson, Colonel Edward Winslow, a United Empire Loyalist, came to New Brunswick in 1783. His son, John Francis Wentworth Winslow, was born near Fredericton in 1793. John F. Winslow was a military man, having served in the West Indies and in the War of 1812. His military career ended in 1832, when he was appointed Sheriff of Carleton County.

John Douglas Winslow was the son of J. Norman Winslow and Gertrude Vanwart. Through his 1924 marriage to Mary Gretchen Connell Smith, John D. Winslow was related to the Smith and Connell families of Woodstock, NB. As a young man, Mr. Winslow was involved in survey work in the Hudson Bay area, which he left in order to join the Canadian Expeditionary Force during the First World War. He served as an officer in the Canadian Field Artillery in France, where he was wounded. In 1921, he founded the investment firm of Winslow and Winslow with his son, John Edward Connell Winslow. John Douglas Winslow died in 1958, leaving his wife, one son, and two daughters, Mary and Muriel.
