BIBLIOGRAPHIC NOTE: In 1980 the General Society of Mayflower Descendants published a genealogy of five generations of descent from George Soule as the third volume in its series of silver volumes [John E. Soule and Milton E. Terry, Mayflower Families Through Five Generations, Volume Three: George Soule (Plymouth 1980), ed. Anne Borden Harding (cited herein as MF 3)]. This is a seriously flawed volume, which should not be relied upon. George E. McCracken and Neil D. Thompson published lengthy reviews pointing out some of the problems [TG 1:225-58; TAG 57:57-

Soule, George Died at Duxbury, bet 20 Sept 1677 when he made a codicil to his will and 22 January 1679/80 when his inventory was taken.. He married at Plymouth, before 1627 when she is included in the Plymouth division of cattle, Mary Buckett, who died at Duxbury about December, 1672. Her surname is a deduction of writers by way of the argument that she was the only available Mary in Plymouth at that time.[TGM 3:1706]


The Mayflower made her final departure from Plymouth, England, on September 6, 1620, with 102 passengers aboard. Of this number only 41 were members of the Leiden church. The remainder of the passengers were hired men, paid servants, or "strangers" who wanted to make a new life in America.

After two months at sea, the Pilgrims arrived at Cape Cod. Even before Mayflower anchored off the tip of Cape Cod, there was a near mutiny. The passengers had hired themselves out as indentured servants, promising to work for seven years to pay for their passage. Some of these passengers thought they could do as they pleased since they were outside the bounds of English law. So they threatened to take their freedom as soon as they got on land.


To solve the problem, the Pilgrims wrote the Mayflower Compact. The Compact was an agreement signed by all the men on board-including the indentured servants-promising to abide by laws that would be drawn up and agreed upon by all male members of the community. The women were not allowed to participate in the governing process.


The Compact states that they would choose their own leaders and make their own laws. It also stated there was to be equal justice for all. This Compact became the constitution of the Plymouth Colony. It was the first document of American democracy to establish "government of the people, by the people, for the people."


When the Separatist group decided that they must look for another homeland, Pastor John Robinson sent with them a long letter in which he outlined a plan for setting up a new government based on democratic principles. The Mayflower Compact which was signed on board the Mayflower at Cape Cod on November 21, 1620 [new style date], was the direct outcome of Robinson's guidance.


This Compact, which was to be the official Constitution of Plymouth Colony for over 70 years, is the first American State Paper. It is also the first statement of the principles of democracy as we now know and understand them. For the first time in the history of the world, a group of men --of their own will--agreed to be governed by themselves according to the will of the majority. The Mayflower Compact is the first document of American Democracy.


Ruth Hall wrote: George Soule came to the United States on the Mayflower. His wife Mary Becket came over on the Anne. George was orphaned when fire destroyed his home . He was brought up by his brother, Robert Soule of Selter Co. He came as a teacher to Edward Winsows children. George and Mary were married in Plymounth. George Soule, Miles Standish and John Alden laid out the first town, Duxbury, and are buried there.


From; The English Ancestry and Homes of the Pilgram fathers by Charles Edward Banks 1984. He has been tentatively identified as son of John Soule of Eckington, Co. Worcester, and problably kinsman to Robert Soule, a wealthy London salter, who died in 1590 a native of Eckington. Robert Soule had a son Miles and a grandson of George, the Emigrant, also bore that name. All other George Soules found in England at that period have been satisfactorily eliminated. Fuller particulars of this identification will be found in the recently published Soule Genealogy for which a special extensive search covering a number of years was made by the compiler of this book. The Winslow family from which Edward was descended lived in the nearby parish of Kempsey, Co. Worcester, and it is probable that this early neighborhood association explains the apprenticeship of George Soule to the Governor. It is supposed that George Soule was in London when he joined Winslow on the voyage. Droitwich, the family home of the Winslows at that time, was a salt mining place connected in a business way with the Salters' Company of London in trade, and thus the Winslow-Soule association was established. The name of Mary Bucket, his wife, who came in the Anne, should be looked for in the parish of St. Botolph, Aldersgate, London. It is probably a variation of Beckett. The marriage is established through the sale by George Soule of that acre of land granted to her as a passenger, which he could do as her husband.


Joan Soule Wrote: Mayflower Compact - This was the first agreement for self-government ever put in force in America. On November 21(then November 11), 1620, the ship MAYFLOWER anchored off Cape Cod , Massachusetts. 41 male adults aboard the MAYFLOWER signed the MAYFLOWER COMPACT and set up a government in Plymouth Colony.


George Soule the original Soule ancestor in America signed this document. He was about 21 years old and had signed on as an indentured servant of Edward Winslow, in order to tutor the Winslow children. He seemed to be a hardy individual because he survived that first fateful winter in the Plymouth Colony. He married Mary Beckett who arrived on a later ship. They had eight children and lived for at least 80 years which was quite a feat in this time period. He left the Plymouth Colony and settled in Duxbury during his later life. There his children and grandchildren were born.
Mayflower Families in Progress: George Soule, by John E. Soule and Robert S. Wakefield, 1992: George Soule was a rep. 1645 and some years later, an original Proprietor of Bridgewater, as in 1652, he had been among the Purch. of Datrmouth. Came on the Mayflower as a servant to Edward Winslow at age 21. He made his will 8/11/1677, aged and weak.

George Soule named as a servant of Edward Winslow: When John Carver died in 1621 William Bradford became the new governor of the colony and appointed Winslow as his assistant. Winslow who served as a member of the governor's council (1624-46) was elected as governor in 1633, 1636 and 1644. He wrote several books about his experiences and religious beliefs including Good News from New England (1624), Hypocrisy Unmasked (1646) and New England's Salamander (1647). Edward Winslow died at sea while returning from the West Indies in 1655.


Edward Winslow (1595-1655) was a Mayflower passenger and a leader of the Plymouth Colony. He served as an ambassador to the Wampanoag, wrote several books about Plymouth Colony, and served 3 terms as governor.


Winslow made many trips to England -- in 1624, he brought the first cattle back to America. In 1646, he returned to England and was asked to stay by the Lord Protector, Oliver Cromwell. Edward Winslow was among those commissioned to retrieve English ships in the West Indies that had been captured by the Dutch. Winslow died on the journey and was buried at sea.

"George Soule was the 35th signer of the Mayflower Compact. He was the servant of Edward Winslow. George Soule's parents are not known."


Pilgrim's Hall Museum: http://www.pilgrimhall.org/
Pilgrim Hall Museum is a gallery museum in the center of historic Plymouth, Massachusetts. Through its exhibition of Pilgrim possessions and Native American artifacts, Pilgrim Hall tells the stories of America’s founding and traditions in stirring detail.


This is quite an amazing story! Most of the information came from the book, "History, Biography and Genealogy of the Families Named Soule, Sowle and Soulis, Volume I and II," compiled and written by Rev. G. T. Ridlon, Sr. It was published in 1926, so please take note of that fact as you are reading through the notes.


George Soule came over on the Mayflower as a servant of Edward Winslow. George married Mary Buckett before 1627, moved eventually to Duxbury and had nine children. He died in Duxbury in 1679. Mary (Buckett) Soule arrived in Plymouth in 1623. She died about December, 1672 in Duxbury.


His family has moved from Plymouth, to Vermont, Canada, California, Colorado, and Mexico, just to name a few. As the author states, "The two volumes of this genealogy contain the names of more than twenty thousand persons and the large majority of these were the descendants of George Soule who came from England in the Mayflower in 1620. Verily, it seems patent to all considerate persons that the family patriarch and his descendants performed their full share in replenishing and populating the earth; and this inheritance has comprised families of real moral and intellectual worth whose lives have contributed nobly to the up building and prosperity of the American nation." Included with the 20,000 persons were seven Cushman women who married into the Soule family, and four Cushman men who married Soule daughters.


This is definitely a story to kick back, enjoy a cup of coffee and read through the pages of time!

"Ivy F. Steagal (sic), after thirteen years of useful work, died in 1847. He had for some years been a local preacher, and in 1834, when the demand for workers was imperious and the promise of reward was small, he entered the work. He travelled hard circuits and harder districts, and did his duty in every field. His health broke down under his labors, and he retired to his home in Upson County, where he died.


"He was a man of most devoted piety and a preacher of real power. He belonged to that class of Georgia preachers who, when there was no hope of family support, and when the rides were long and the exposure great, held on his way while his faithful wife attended to the farm and supported the children."
- "The Story of Methodism in Georgia and Florida from 1785 to 1865," Geo. G. Smith, Jr., Jno. W. Burke and Co., 1877, 394.
