The Book of Soden

 History of the  Soden Family 1146 - 1950

Grove Abstracts 1651 - 1922

The Grove Abstracts on the Soden Name in Ireland 1651 - 1922

These are the fully edited Abstracts of  Mr. Grove from the National Archives, Dublin . They are kept in a small 50-page copybook , hand-written in pencil and contain a large amount of information on the Soden family name from earliest records to 1922. These are priceless for any Soden researcher as they corroborate or otherwise  in many cases  much information on the family , which may have been till now , hearsay.


Grove abbreviations


Most of these abbreviations were in shorthand and pencil written in an old A3 copybook containing all information at Grove?s  disposal from official documents prior to 1922. This resource is priceless to those searching for their Soden ancestry in Ireland as nearly all these records were lost in the fire of 1922.

The discovery of the  extant 1821 census for my area in Co. Cavan was an incredible

stroke of good luck but this is paled by the contribution of the wonderful Mr. Grove and

his abstracts.


To find a 50-page exercise copy filled with every concievable piece of

miscellaneous information taken from so many sources now mostly destroyed in 1922 on our

family name  was a moment of rare delight. 

In this work were corroborated many hitherto uncertain details such as that Thomas Soden had 

a brother,Robert, or the existence of the Longford and Athlone family group with his transcriptions 

of the 1821 census for that area which is destroyed.

Only someone deeply involved in Irish genealogy will really appreciate the importance and value of

such a find. Should anyone ever question the validity of such a chronological source as this ,let

them look to Mr. Grove's achievement.

The Grove discovery convinced me of the inestimable need for a detailed chronological source to our 

family from which means any branch may draw and tell the unique story of their own development 

over the last half millenium.
