John Winthrop became governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony in

1629 and preceded governor John Endicott (Endecott)

He was born in Groton, England in 1588 and died in Boston,

Massachusetts in 1649.

He was a lawyer but lived most of his life in the colonies as a

governor and political leader.

This assumes that you're asking about John Winthrop, who could

be an American scientist (1714-79), colonial governor in America

(1606-76), or colonial governor of Connecticut (1638-1707).
