Josiah Winslow (1628 – December 18, 1680) was an American Pilgrim leader. He served as governor of Plymouth Colony from 1673 to 1680.

Born in Plymouth Colony (now Plymouth, Massachusetts), he was son of Edward Winslow and Susanna White. In 1651 in London, with his father, he married Penelope Pelham, daughter of Herbert Pelham, the first treasurer of Harvard College. She had previously lived in Plymouth Colony from 1638-1649. Edward, Josiah and Penelope had portraits painted in London that year. (Josiah's mother had remained in Plymouth on their estate, "Careswell", in the town of Marshfield.) Josiah returned to Plymouth with his wife in 1655, the same year his father died on an excursion to the Caribbean against the Dutch. Josiah was the first governor of the colony born in the New World and served at the time of King Philip's War.

His half-brother was Peregrine White, the first English child born in New England.

Josiah and Penelope had a daughter who died at two days, a daughter Elizabeth, a son Edward who died in his first year and a son, Isaac.
