In Reply to: The Paull genealogy by Keith George Stedman Paull of 191

William Paul, Paull, Paule of Taunton was from Scotland. All three spellings were used during his life. When he signed on as a passenger of the Truelove in June l635 it was William Paul, when he married Mary Richmond in l657 it was William Paule, which is how he is referred to in Richmond wills and some legal procedings. His grave reads Paul.
Richard Paul the other Taunton Paul whose marriage to Margaret Turner was the first marriage in what became Taunton came from Ipswich, England. There is no evidence at all that they were related excepting that they had the same surname and lived in the same town. My branch of the family hasn't used two Ls since l800. Some of the branches dropped it one generation and added again it later.
Ed Paul
