SOLES Co-ordinator's Report July 1993

By Bill Soles

News has reached us from Australia of another, hitherto unknown, SOLES family and once again it looks as if it goes back to SOLE, or in this case to SOUL.

A Mrs. Marjorie Roper of Canberra has given us information about the ancestry of her son­in‑law Mr. Brett King. Mr King's grandmother, Gladys Trewhella Soles, was the great‑grand‑daughter of a Thomas Soles, born Eastleach Martin, Glos, about 1808‑9. His children were baptised at nearby Fyfield.

Thomas and his wife and family emigrated to New South Wales in the 1850s.
