The Book of Soden

Miscellaneous Counties




MISCELLANEOUS COUNTIES IN IRELAND
(1633 - 1929)


Counties of Clare ,Cork, Derry, ,Dublin, Fermanagh ,Leitrim,
Limerick, Longford,Offaly , Roscommon,Meath,Westmeath


It is only when one comes to research the occurrence of the Soden name
in the midland counties of Ireland that we come across the more unusual
and less common variations of the name. This may be because this chapter
contains all counties where the name is infrequent ,scattered geographically
and so I have included every possible variation met as some of these are
taken from old manuscripts which were not distinctly legible and may well
at a later date be dismissed as misnomers by someone else with a better knowledge
of these several branches.
Clearly Robert Soden of Derry in 1691 may well be related to the Sligo branch
because of his christian name and the later strong ties of the family with Derry
Protestant Cathedral (Clotworthy )and the Irish Society (Edmond) there.
The name Robert is found later in Enniskillen in 1732 and in land deeds from 1811 onwards.
However it is in the counties of Leitrim , Longford, Roscommon,Westmeath,
Meath and Dublin that the majority of families seem to have settled. From the
Leitrim branch of Henry Soden,Mohill descend many of the Canadian Sodens of
Simcoe county,Ontario when Henry Morris Soden and his brother ,William,
emigrated there in the 1850's to the town fo Wyebridge.
Related to these is Caleb Soden the medical doctor of Mohill and his brother,
John, the pharmacist in the town,also with businesses in Ballinamore,Longford.
The descendants of Caleb are outlined in the work "Ancestors and Descendants
of Caleb Soden" compiled by John Voorhis Soden of New York,1914 whose
descendants are as far afield as Oregon , California and Alabama.
A collateral branch is found residing in Athlone,Westmeath ,the beautiful boating town
on the Shannon river in the centre of ireland. This was and ,indeed,still is a military town
and it is here we find John and Thomas Soden. We know more about Thomas and his family
as thanks to the wonderfully industrious Mr. Grove the parish registers of St.Peter's ,Athlone
have been transcribed by him . Thomas married Margaret (probably Purdue) and they had
4 children,William,Margaret,George,Thomas between the years 1807 and 1814. These grew
up in the Athlone area and we know that this family emigrated to Australia in 1841 on the
'Adam Lodge'where a strong line of his descendants exist to this day. By the most extraordinary
coincidence it was on the 'Adam Lodge' that the Martin Soden,of Sligo emigrated to New York
in 1846 in the second year of the Great Famine. I have never succeeded in tracing the outcome
of this Martin Soden.

Tuesday,29th May,1798
"The Donegal Militia,commanded by Col. Maxwell is arrived at Wexford,
also Col. Colville,Capt.Young and Soden of the 13th who have volunteered
their services for our defence".
The next entry mentions a report that the 13th Regiment was wiped out by the rebels.

commanded by Col. Maxwell ,accompanied by Col. Colwell,
Capt. Younge and Lt. Soden of the 13th Foot.........

Obituary

 

Dr. Michael Soden, M.A.O., 1915 - 80

 

Dr. Michael Soden, M.A.O. of Tullamore, who has died , was born in Virginia, Co. Cavan, in 1915. he studied Medicine at University College, Dublin and Qualified M.B.,B.Ch. in 1942. he was house physician in the Mater Hospital to Professor Henry Moore , M.D. After his early hospital appointments in Dublin, he decided to specialise in Obstetrics and Gynaecology. He was appointed Assistant Master at the National maternity Hospital, Holles Street, Dublin, and worked there from 1945 to 1948. he then took the M.A.O. degree in University College, Dublin. Subsequently he followed his chosen speciality in hospital in England, in Northampton and the South London Hospital for Women.

He returned to Ireland to become the first consultant in Obstetrics and Gynaecology to Portiuncula Hospital when it opened in 1950. there he spent eight very happy, satisfying years, during which he built up an obstetrics practice which brought patients from all over the Wet of Ireland and elsewhere, from all walks of life, to his care. It was at this hospital that he met Peggy, his wife, who nursed there.

Subsequently, he practised for over twenty years as a family doctor in Tullamore. This surely was a major change for him in professional commitment to patients and he met the challenge with indomitable courage and élan, tinged at times for sure , with deep melancholy.

                       

                                                             METICULOUS

 

If ever there evolved then a wise, skilled, shrewd practitioner of the art of General Practice, it was Michael Soden. He did , of course, for a while, to some extent, continue at Tullamore his practice in obstetrics and gynaecology. He kept meticulous records; he got to know and remember his patients in his own indescribable and inimitable way; he got through his work quickly and yet found the time to be very kind to the very old and the very sick.

He was coroner for the Offaly area and for many years a staunch member of the Irish Medical Association, being quick with the repartee, a demolisher of the pompous and a staunch defender of professional rights.

Coming, in his own words, from ‘the haunts of Coot and Heron’, the pursuit of the pheasant, woodcock, the humble pigeon and the deer brought him many hours of happiness and consolation and friends all over the country; not to mention the pleasures his boat on the lake gave him. He reared his six children, the apples of  his eye, in their lovely home where he was always a generous host.

A sweet striker of the golf ball; he contested the Captain’s Prize finals three times at Tullamore golf club. Shortly before his death he sang ‘Kevin Barry’ at the Tullamore Nurses Hospital Dance from the ballroom stage. One readily remembers his singing or whistling to a mixed gathering on the stage at Puerto de la Cruz and with grace joining in a Flamenco dance.

Although outwardly a colourful character, he was a sensitive soul and behind it all was ‘a man of sorrow and acquainted with grief.’ Despite a busy day’s work he attended daily Mass.

They sang ‘Danny Boy’ after the funeral mass, a lament which went hard to many of the large congregation.

The old order has changed. A large character has passed away from among us. One could speculate forever as to the many facets of his complex character – there was a little of the Chaucer about him, a little of the Falstaff, something of the Hemingway, much of Luke the Physician, and more than a dash of Orion the Great Hunter. But what a Virginian this was, who supped so full of life even during infirmity!

He lies in peace near a little river and a wood not a mile from home at the old church in Muclagh.

A child friend sent his family a Mass card adding : ‘He shall not hear the Bittern Cry’. As the Eriskay love lilt went – ‘Bheir Mi O’ – ‘ Sad am I without thee’.
