He was a member of the noble Italian Socin family, one of Basel's leading families, and a brother of burgomaster of Basel Emanuel Socin (1628–1717). Abel Socin was a great-grandfather of the renowned theatre director Abel Seyler. He was married to Maria Hummel (1635–1681); her remains with elaborate jewelry described by archaeologists as masterpieces from the era were discovered in front of the Basel Minster in 2009, in what was Abel Socin's family grave.
