Biography

Ancestry

Reconstruction of the pilgrim home of George and Mary Soule in Plymouth MA.

Mary Buckett (or Beckett), wife of the 1620 Mayflower passenger George Soule (c1593-1678), mother of nine known children, remains unknown. She likely was born in England in the early 1600s and died, per son John, in December 1676 at Duxbury, Mass., but son John did not provide her age at death.

Mary's surname has historically been written as Bucket, based on a singular record in 1623, with some writers writing her maiden name as Becket, but whether either was her maiden name remains unconfirmed.

Plymouth Colony

Mary arrived at Plymouth Colony in 1623 aboard the Anne, the third ship to bring groups of Pilgrim families to Plymouth.

In Plymouth's initial 1623 division of land she was allotted one acre of land "next to John Rogers".
