Joseph Church had a D. Abigail, who m. a Simmons as early as, and probably before, 1700.
SOULE.George Soule was one of the first pilgrims and signers of the political Compact on board the May Flower 1620; in the general allotment in 1623 he had one acre and afterwards two more "at the watering place," all of which he sold to Robert Hicks 1639; in 1627 he and his w. Mary and s. Zechariah are named; he lived at Eel River, N. side the bridge, in 1638, and then at Powder Point, and removed to Duxbury before 1650; was a Selectman and Deputy there, and one of the original proprietors of Bridgewater; he sold his proprietary right to Nicholas Byram; she d. 1677; he 1680 very aged; he had Zechariah, John, Nathaniel, George, Patience w. of John Haskell, Elizabeth w. of Francis Walker, both of Mid'o., Susanna, and Mary wife of John Peterson probably of Duxbury, m. before 1672; Mary had been put out to John Winslow 1632 for 7 yrs.; he gave one-half his Dartmouth lands to Nathaniel 1658, the other half to George 1668, his Mid'o. lands to Haskell and Walker and their wives 1668; Zechariah d. before him, 1663, leaving a wid.
