The classic genealogical work on this family is Lawrence Shaw Mayo, The Winthrop Family in America (Boston: Massachusetts Historical Society, 1948). The published documentation on this family has been further enriched by the ongoing publication of the Winthrop Papers, 6 vols. to date (Boston: Massachusetts Historical Society, 1929–92), which begins with the family’s Latin pedigree (1:1-7). Some of the original records relevant to this lineage were first printed in Walter Goodwin Davis, Reade, New England Historical and Genealogical Register 84 (1930): 113, and Walter Goodwin Davis, The Second Marriage of John Winthrop the Younger, New England Historical and Genealogical Register 88 (1394): 301. Robert Charles Anderson, The Great Migration Begins: Immigrants to New England, 1620–1633, 3 vols. (Boston: New England Historic Genealogical Society, 1995), 3:2040-1, and Robert Charles Anderson, The Winthrop Fleet: Massachusetts Bay Company Immigrants to New England, 1629–1630 (Boston: New England Historic Genealogical Society, 2012), 686-91, call attention to some inaccuracies in printed materials. Several of the associated families receive brief treatment in Joseph James Muskett, Suffolk Manorial Families, 3 vols. (Exeter: William Pollard & Co., Ltd., 1903–14), vol. 1.
