The Book of Soden

 History of the  Soden Family 1146 - 1950

(1633 - 1980)

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.

Birth of Joseph Edward James Soden (1860 - 1905), son of Joseph Soden , who married Caroline Elizabeth MacManus. 

Both men were apothecaries. Joseph Jnr. married Caroline MacManus twice, in 1886 and 1887, first in a Presbyterian ceremony and secondly in a Protestant Church of Ireland ceremony. They moved to Swansea in Wales where he practiced as an apothecary and surgeon. He signed up to be a Surgeon Lieutenant in the 3rd Glamorgan regiment in 1895 and died 10 years later in 1905.
