"(I) George Soule came to Massachusetts in the "Mayflower" in 1620, under the protection of Edward Winslow. He landed at Plymouth, December 21, same year. He signed the famous Cape Cod compact in November, 1620, had a grant of one acre, and next a lot "at the watering place," and in 1633 he became a freeman of the colony. In 1633-34 he was taxed independent of Winslow, his tax in the former year being nine shillings. In 1638 he lived north of Eel river bridge, relinquished his land there to Constant and Thomas Southworth, and removed to Duxbury and settled at Powder Point. The next year he sold his first acre grant to Robert Hicks. He was an original proprietor of Bridgewater in 1645, and sold his right to Nicholas Bygrave; and in 1652 he was among the purchasers of Dartmouth, and also of Middleboro. He was representative in the general court, 1642-45-46-50-51-53-54. He died in 1680, very aged. He married, about 1623, Mary Becket, or Bucket, who came as one of the passengers in the "Ann" and her consorts of 1621, in company with Barbara Standish and Patience and Fear Brewster. She died in 1677. The children of this union were: George, Zechariah, John, Nathaniel, Benjamin, Patience, Elizabeth and Mary, all born before 1650, but the order of births is unknown.".
