Origins

George Soule's origins in England have not been discovered. The most promising record found to date is the baptism of a George Soule on 9 February 1595 at Tingrith, Bedford, son of William. Other Soule families using the name George can also be found in Sudbury, Suffolk, and Flitwick, Bedford. More information on the search for George's Ancestors is available at the Soule Kindred Website.

Short Biography

George Soule was a 1620 Mayflower passenger[1]. He arrived as a servant to Edward Winslow[1]. He married by 1627, if not earlier, Mary Bucket.[2]

He became a Purchaser and was on the 1633 list of freemen[1]. He moved to Duxbury and acquired considerable amounts of land in other places. George Soule was a volunteer in the Pequot war and in 1642 was a duputy for Duxbury.

Biography

A biography of George Soule, and five generations of his descendants, was published in the book "Mayflower Families Through Five Generations, Volume 3," edited by Anne Borden Harding, published by the General Society of Mayflower Descendants, 1980.

George Soule joined, probably in London, a company of adventurers off to the New World. His status is clearly established as a "servant" to relatively wealthy Pilgrim Edward Winslow. He was a signer of the Mayflower Compact.

By the May 1627 Division of Cattle, he was married to Mary, and they had had one son, Zachariah.

Duxbury, Massachusetts, was part of Plymouth Colony. Officially it became a separate town in 1637. George was one of the settlers along with notable people Myles Standish, William Brewster and John Alden.

George Soule and family moved to Duxbury very early on, and he was a deputy to the Plymouth Court for a number of years beginning in 1642. He had volunteered for the Pequot War of 1637, but Plymouth's troops were not needed. He was on various committees, juries, and survey teams, during his life in Duxbury. In 1646, for example, he was appointed to the committee to deal with Duxbury's problem of the disorderly smoking of tobacco. George Soule became a relatively well-to-do leader, business man and office holder in Plymouth Colony. As early as July 1627, George Soule was one of a group of 58 "Purchasers or Old Comers" who assumed Plymouth Colony's debt to "The Adventurers," the promoters and captalists who financed the voyage of the Mayflower and other early ventures and expenses of the colony. In return, the group received profitable trading concessions in Maine, at Cape Ann, on Buzzard's Bay, and subsequently on the Connecticut River. The General Court voted 5 March 1639/40 to pay these "Purchasers or Old Comers" for the surrender of their patent. Land records show that he acquired extensive holdings in Duxbury, Dartmouth, Middleboro, Marshfield and Bridgewater, but resided only in Plymouth and Duxbury (or "Ducksburrow" as it was called originally).

He was in the 1633 list of freemen in Plymouth, and on the list of freemen of 7 March 1636/7, and was on the 29 May 1670 list of freemen of Duxburrow.

George Soule was appointed Deputy (for Duxburrow) 27 Sept 1642 (special deputy in case of war with the Indians), 7 June 1653, 7 March 1653/4, 6 June 1654; Committee (from Duxbury) 28 Oct 1645, 3 Mar 1645/6, 7 July 1646, 4 June 1650 (to consider the making and repealing of laws), 5 June 1651; Grand jury 7 March 1642/3, 6 June 1643; Jury 3 June 1656, 3 March 1662/3; Petit jury 1 June 1647; Lot viewer 4 June 1645; Committee to draw an order concerning the disorderly drinking of tobacco 20 Oct 1646. Viewer of meadows 5 May 1640; Committee to set the range 1 June 1658.

He was one of the "voluntaries" on 7 June 1637 as one of 42 men under Lieutenant William Holmes and Rev. Thomas Prence as chaplain "but when they were ready to march ... they had word to stay; for the enemy was as good as vanquished and there would be no need."


Vitals

George Soule was born about 1593 or at least by 1602 in England, origins unknown.[3]

He died before 22 JAN 1679/80 in Duxbury, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts[4]

His resting place is not known but a memorial stone was erected by the Soule Kindred in 1971 at the Miles Standish Burying Ground, Duxbury, Plymouth, Massachusetts.

Last Will & Testament

Will proved 22 January 1678/70.
Place: Duxbury, Plymouth, Massachusetts[6]

The will of George Soule, dated 11 August 1677 (with codicil dated 20 Sept 1677), was proved 5 March 1679/80: Mentions: previous deeds of land given to sons Nicholas and George and daughters Elizabeth and Patience; 12 pence a piece to daughters Susannah and Mary; and to eldest son John everything else, making him executor. The codicil is interesting. It states that if John or his heirs should "disturb" Patience, then John is no longer executor and everything he has from the estate is to be given to Patience.

Biographical Summary

George Soule's origins in England have not been discovered. The most promising record found to date is the baptism of a George Soule on 9 February 1595 at Tingrith, Bedford, son of William. Other Soule families using the name George can also be found in Sudbury, Suffolk, and Flitwick, Bedford.

George Soule came on the Mayflower as a servant to the Edward Winslow family, indicating he was under 25 years old at the time; however, he did sign the Mayflower Compact, suggesting he was over 21. This puts his birth year at around 1595-1599. This matches well with his apparent marriage date of around 1625 at Plymouth: by the May 1627 Division of Cattle, he was married to Mary, and they had had one son, Zachariah.

George Soule and family moved to Duxbury very early on, and he was a deputy to the Plymouth Court for a number of years beginning in 1642. He had volunteered for the Pequot War of 1637, but Plymouth's troops were not needed. He was on various committees, juries, and survey teams, during his life in Duxbury. In 1646, for example, he was appointed to the committee to deal with Duxbury's problem of the disorderly smoking of tobacco.

George Soule made out his will on 11 August 1677, and added a codicil to it on 20 September 1677. The codicil is quite interesting as it gives a little insight into a family squabble between son John and daughter Patience:

"If my son John Soule above-named or his heirs or assigns or any of them shall at any time disturb my daughter Patience or her heirs or assigns or any of them in peaceable possession or enjoyment of the lands I have given her at Nemasket alias Middleboro and recover the same from her or her heirs or assigns or any of them; that then my gift to my son John Soule shall be void; and that then my will is my daughter Patience shall have all my lands at Duxbury and she shall be my sole executrix of this my last will and testament and enter into my housing lands and meadows at Duxbury."

Hi, I'm looking at the data section. Birth place: shouldn't this just be England. Maybe not even England, since there is some speculation he was born in Holland. Eckington it seems to me was disproved a long time ago. Death 22 Jan 1679/80. Wikitree custom is to use the latter year so 1680. Ok to change these?

Gravestone does not show birth and the birth on Find a grave is still speculative.

Mary Buckett did not arrive until 1623, and received a division of land in her own name the same year so was not married until afterward.

Info from another 2006 source: He signed the Mayflower Compact, therefore was over 21 in 1620. Year of birth - about 1695.

I am currently working on moving the memories into the biography section. I'm not done yet. More work is needed:

1) Check for completeness 2) Compare to listed sources for possible copy write problems. 3) Add proper sourcing and references. 4) Integrate into the bio narrative and remove duplicate information. 5) Finally delete as memories. 6) Acknowledge Lois' work.
