    Notes:

    Excerpt from "Mayflower Families - George Soule": The will of George Soule Sr. of Duxberry dated 11 Aug. 1677, with codicil dated 20 Sept. 1677, and inventory 22 Ja. 1679, gave lands in Dartmouth to sons Nathaniel and "Gorge"; mentions lands in "Middleberry" formerly given to daughters Elizabeth and Patience; names daughters Susanna and Mary; eldest son John tohave the remainder of his housing and lands. The codicil warned son John that if he disturbed daughter Patience, then Patience was to have the house and lands at Duxburrow. The account of John Soule mentions "since my mother died which was three yeer the last December."

    Excerpt from "the Mayflower Quarterly" Sept. 2009: The more promising candidate to date would seem to be the George Soule of tingrith, baptized in February 1594/5. Although just a tad older than should be expected for a servant, an unusual clause in his father's will preventing his small inheritance payment until the age of 26 ( in 1621) might be an explantation, and his brother William may have ended up in the "Mayflower" hot-bed parish of Henlow. It was also shown that, contrary to previously published accounts, George Soule of tingrith was not the same man as the George Soule of Flitwick - and, as a result, his wehreabouts as an adult cannot be accounted for in Bedfordshire records.

    Name:
    He was a servant of Edward Winslow of Plymouth, probably indentured for seven years. He served as a volunteer for the Pequot War (1637).

    According to Francis R. Stoddard in "The Truth About The Pilgrims" page 150, "George Soule came as a servant ofEdward Winslow. He was the 35th signer of the Mayflower compact. He was born about 1600 and is credited to the London contingent. He was the son of John Soule of Eckington, Worcestershire, England. Robert Soule of the family was a London salter. Droitwich, where Edward Winslow as born, was a salt mining place and connected with the salters company of London. This last may have brought George Soule and Edward Winslow together. George Soule married Mary Becket before 1627. His autograph has been preserved."

    George married Marie BECKET 29 Mar 1935, Duxbury, Plymouth, Ma. Marie (daughter of Sylvester BECKETT and Elizabeth HILL) was born , England; was christened 31 Jul 1623; died 16 Dec 1676, Duxbury, Plymouth Co., Massachusetts; was buried , Duxbury, Plymouth Co., Massachusetts. [Group Sheet]
