This incredible family history is one of the most comprehensive, and indeed, authoritative works, not only on this family but indeed on any family in the area of Scottish history. It begins with a study of the origin of the family, and proceeds then to the heraldry of the Soules, the arms and seals of the Scottish Soulis, the arms of the Sollis in Kent, and then turns to the family in England, the Norman Soules in Scotland, their lands in Liddesdale, the Soulis family in Gloucestershire, and indeed throughout the British Isles. It continues with an account of the family in France, before turning to the Soules in North America. Much of two-volume work is concerned with the numerous branches of the family located throughout the United States. Overall, it is an amazing work, detailing the history and genealogy of the Soule family.
