MAYFLOWER REJECT The William Soule Connection
William Soule, a Sgt. in the British army during the Revolutionary War, was one of the many Loyalists who settled Alburgh, Vermont. He, his wife, Anna Sewell, and seven sons escaped to the wilderness by Lake Champlain. He and his older sons took the Freeman's oath on 7 June 1792, prior to the first Town Meeting in Alburgh, Vermont. Alburgh is less than a mile from the Canadian border.
William Soule has been rejected by the Mayflower Society because of lack of documentation. In 1985, it was learned that his parents up to that time were Ezekiel Soule and Hannah Delano. However, a tombstone was found in Woolwich, Maine claiming the real William Soule was a 17 year old sailor who died unmarried. Immediately, William Soule and Anna Sewell were erased from the Mayflower descendancy list--and probably always will be.
So William Soule with seven sons was pronounced fatherless, and his history eludes the present day researchers. However, after studying hundreds of peripheral lines, his lineage still connects back to George Soule, the pilgrim. The Revolutionary War uprooted many solid families and they literally disappeared into the wilderness below the Canadian border. The interesting thing that occurred was they married into families from the same area in Massachusetts, New York, and Rhode Island and they all ended up in Alburg, Vermont.
Why did William Soule of Alburg, Vermont and Joseph Soule of Fairfield, Vermont, settle only miles apart? Because they were brothers! William the oldest son and Joseph the youngest son of Timothy Soule and Elizabeth Allen. Who founded Allensburg, I mean, Alburg, Vermont? General Ethan Allen and his brother, Ira Allen, both relatives of William Soule. I have connected up this relationship and it's on my website. There are many interesting connections like this that help verify the authenticity of William Soule and his relationship to his gg grandfather, George Soule. I will continue to build this relationship as I continue to build this website.
