a/k/aWinthrop Fleet (1630),
"The Winthrop Fleet"; MBC governor
WINTHROP, JOHN, governor, author, was born Jan. 22, 1588, in England. He was elected governor of Massachusetts twelve times, and that he was not chosen continuously was due to his strong insistence upon the principle that true liberty requires wise and secure authority. A portrait of him, ascribed to Vandyke, is in the senate chamber of Massachusetts. He was the author of Arbitrary Government Described; and History of New England from 1630 to 1649. He died March 26, 1649, in Boston, Mass.
