This topic set me exploring the impact of just one father on a community over 7 generations. It is quite incomplete, as this family is not one to dig at depth for too long, without a monster size headache and crossed eyes. All those names the same, and cousins inter-marrying!!
Robert Soffe was my 9 times great grandfather, his son Thomas was christened in 1640 in Minstead, Hampshire. Roberts birth range most likely 1600-1620. One of the Philedelphia Soffe’s in the 6th generation married William Adams.
