The Winter/Spring 2016 newsletter of Soule Kindred of America arrived in my mailbox yesterday and the front cover plus 5 inside pages detail the results and methodology of a search for the origins of Mary Beckett/Bucket, wife of pilgrim George Soule. This SKA-sponsored search has produced promising results that help also to make sense of how some of the "Strangers" wound up aboard the Mayflower. I will leave it to you, Gentle Reader, to become a member of SKA and get a copy of this newsletter, but the upshot is that Mary may have been born in Hertfordshire, England circa 1605. The article contains details about the proposed Mary's parents, siblings, and extended family, and the Becketts' links to the Warrens and Aldens. Part of the coverage includes an interesting feature on the background of the researchers hired to do this study. One lives in England; one in the U.S. and -- shout-out to my daughter -- the one in England has a degree in Latin with training in 12th-17th century paleography.
The author is an Arizona research historian who enjoys the challenge of looking for Mayflower descendants, hers and anyone else's.
