Notes

  • The oldest records of Middleborough are in a pigskin covered volume which is not numbered, but is labelled "early Records." Some of the leaves of this book are in a very bad condition, and it should be preserved by the Emery process. The book contains the earliest Proprietors' Records, many records of Town Meetings, etc., and a few pages of vital records. On the inside of the front cover is written "John Soule bult his hous In yere 1700," "William Thomas Son was born in the yeare 1700." [Early Records, Part I, page 1]
  • John Soule died intestate and Esther Soul, 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 the sons of John and abstracts the deeds of gift to these sons.
