  • Note:
    !There is no FGRA sheet for Francis West although one is indicated on the
    FGRA sheet of George Soule. His name is on the Crapo Family
    Organization pedigree compiled by Mrs. Dorothy D. Hall (now deceased).
    This had sources: "Mayflower Families Through Five Generations" V. 3;
    Memorandum Book of Samuel West, grandson of Wm., son of Francis,
    published in "Mayflower Desc." V. 26; Vital Records of Plymouth,
    Plymouth, Mass., in "Mayflower Desc." V. 14.
    "Mayflower Families..." says "We have been unable to find place or date
    of birth, date of death or parentage for Francis."
    A family group sheet of Matthew West of Newport, Newport, R. I., in the
    FGRA collection of the Family History Library, Salt Lake City, Utah,
    shows Francis who married Susanna Soule as sixth son. It was
    submitted by Mrs. Emma P. Walton, Centervile, Utah. Her sources were
    "West Family reg B9 E 1 p 402; Allred Families B2F1C; B12E9; Mayflower
    Descendents Am Pub A Vol 26; Conn S11".
    Matthew is also given as father in "Genealogy of George West and James
    R. Kimble" by A. L. Pino, (FHL 929.273 W52p), references, "State Gen.
    Library, Albany, New York: Historical Society Record, Wayne Co. N. Y. ; and
    Records in possession of Maud Clossen", and in "History of Stonington,
    New London, Conn." by R. A. Wheeler, 1900 (FHL 974.65/S1 D2w, also on
    films 847758 and 900000)
    Richley Crapo, 654 E. 1980 N., North Logan, Utah 84341-1933, wonders if
    Francis might be the son of Francis West and Margery Reeves. He says
    the records he has seen of Francis and Margery do not include a son
    Francis, however there are some interesting facts about them that leads
    him to suspect that he might be their first child. According to
    Attendants' Court records published in Shurtleff's "Records of the
    Colony of New Plymouth in New England" Francis and Margery were
    married 27 Feb 1639/40 and they were convicted about nine months
    later, on 17 Nov 1640, of "incontenency with one another before
    marriage" and were apparently of Duxbury, where Francis was required
    to build some stocks within the following three months. Their residence
    at Duxbury would have made them neighbors of George Soule, father of
    Suzannah, who was wife of our Francis.
    Richley says that Francis and Margery's first recorded child in all
    sources he has seen was Samuel, who was born in 1643. He states that
    there is clearly room for an earlier child and says "Unfortunately, the
    court record gives no particulars about the reason for the charges
    brought against Francis and Margery. They might, of course, have been
    accused by someone, but why so long afterwards? Such accusations
    were not uncommon and the most common reason was the birth of a
    full-term child too early after the marriage ceremony. If our Francis,
    named for his father, was the source of the legal accusation all the
    loose ends are neatly tied together." He notes that this may prove
    impossible to document, unless the father's will could be found.
    The LDS Ancestral File has another wife for Francis who married
    Susanna Soule. It is Elizabeth Soule Jr., daughter of George Soule and
    Mary Bucket or Becket. It has Francis Walker as Elizabeth's first spouse
    and Francis John West as second spouse, married about 1680. However, it
    has Francis' first wife as Susanna Soule and her death 1707.
    "Mayflower Families...." shows Elizabeth with only the one marriage to
    Francis Walker who died 1702 and quotes a 1668 deed to "Francis
    Walker, husband to my daughter Elizabeth."

    From "Mayflower Families....": Francis and Susanna and family "resided
    in that part of Kings Towne, R.I. which became North Kingstown in
    1722/3. We have been unable to find place or date of birth, date of death
    or parentage for Francis.
    "When Gov. Andros took over the King's Province in 1687, he levied taxes
    on the inhabitants of Kingstown, renamed Rochester. Included in the list
    were Francis Wast senior, Francis Wast junior, and Richard Wast. Only
    Francis senior had a rate, that of 2 shillings 1 pence. The children of this
    family have been difficult to trace. Francis, Susannah, and Martha
    remained in the Kingstown, R.I., area; William removed to Newport, R.I.,
    probably after the death of his first wife. Clement moved to
    Charlestown, R.I., and then disappears from R.I. records, perhaps moving
    to Dutchess County, N.Y. Richard returned to Plymouth and Bristol
    County, living in Middleboro and Taunton. We have not found Peter, John
    nor Thomas. This family name has a variety of spellings in the public
    records: WAST, WEST, WASTE, WEAST being common variants. Of the
    four "West" families in Plymouth Colony only this family has its
    surname used in forms other than WEST suggesting that the original
    name, while phonetically similar, was distinct from West. Some of
    Susanna's children are identified in the Samuel West Memorandum Book
    published in the 'Mayflower Descendant'."
    The memorandum book of Samuel West published in "Mayflower Desc." V.
    26 says "My great grandfather Francis West came from Europe to
    America soon after the first settlement at Plymouth and soon after his
    arrival he married a young lady by the name of Sole, daughter of Mr.
    George Sole...by whom he had seven sons and daughters. His sons names
    were Francis, Thomas, Peter, William, Richard, Clemment and John. His
    daughters names were Martha & Susanna. Martha married a Fones by
    whom she had children. Susanna married a Barber by whom she had a
    number of sons & daughters."
