(MD 19:96) His father-in-law Moses Simmons " in consideration of a marriage here-to-fore consummated between John Soul of Duxbury and my eldest daughter, Rebecca" gave to John land in Middleboro. (MD 4:159) John Soule died intestate and Hester Soule, widow, was appointed to administer his estate 14 November 1707. His three daughters or their heirs proposed division of the residuary real estate amongst them since their father "in his lifetime settled all his sons portions in land by deed", and they, the daughters, received but one cow. The settlement was signed by John and Rachel Cobb, Edmund and Rebecca Weston and Adam Wright on behalf of his children born to his wife, Sarah deceased. G.E. Bowman (MD 8:184ff) identifies all of the sons of John and abstracts the deeds of gift to these sons. Other references:Families of the Pilgrims Shaw, Hubert F.Boston, MA 1956

    "(II) John, son of George and Mary (Becket) Soule, born in 1632, died in 1707, aged seventy-five, resided in Duxbury. At the time his father made his will, John was the eldest child. He was made the chief heir. The portion of the will referring to this matter runs as follows: "And for as much as my eldest son, John Soule, and his family hath in my extreme old age and weakness bin tender and careful of mee and very healpful to mee; and is likely for to be while it shall please God to continuew my life heer, therefore I give and bequeath unto my said son, John Soule, all the remainder of my housing and lands whatever." John Soule was freeman, 1653. During the excitement against the Quakers he was fined, October 2 1660, for attending their meetings. He was surveyor of highways, 1672, 1694; grand juryman 1675-77-78-83-84; arbitrator between Marshfield and Duxbury, and Plymouth and Duxbury, 1698, involving land disputes; witness to the Indian deed of Bridgewater, dated December 23, 1686, and joined in a remonstrance 1687, against increasing the salary of Rev. Ichabod Wiswell. He married Esther, probably a doughter of Philip Dela Noye, who died September 12, 1733 [sic, VR Duxbury says 1735], aged ninety-five. Their children were: John, Joseph, Joshua, Josiah, Benjamin and two daughters."
