"Have a good school run!! And great holiday in Derby - went to Ashbourne last year there were 19 of us all together - a truly great all family holiday to 3 generations!
I did find the 1861 census with John Sodin aged 71 and saved to my shoebox. Am…"
"In 1861 in Leicester Workhouse was John Sodin 71 Stocking Frame work knitter b Foxton Leics, and wife Mary 68 b Kegworth. I think he might be the father of Joseph and Abraham, but it will take some work to prove it.
OK, school run!
"It looks as though the 1853 marriage information is taken from the marriage cert so I don't doubt what you show. It would be very difficult to mistranscribe ag lab as framework knitter or fwk!
We're in luck. Abraham Soden's second…"
"Thank you again David, yes I would much rather learn myself as I remember more but having said that thank you so much for the information relating to my queries. I feel more confindent going forward now that can do alot of this research myself. I am…"

"Hi David, yes i have him listed as a frame work knitter. However my cousin did the ancestry tree on that side of the family and I have found quite a few errors. She did the tree in the 1980's by the hard route of going to places and looking at…"
"I see from your Ancestry tree (the sunset's the giveaway!) that in 1853 on Joseph's marriage, his father John is described as a framework knitter. That doesn't sound much like the ag lab which John in Bedworth was described as in…"
"Brilliant thank you David. I wonder if you can answer one more question for me, well a complicated one actually... You referred to the 1841 census and stated ages were rounded down - how do we know that? and secondly how do we know there are no…"
"Pre 1837, therefore no birth certs!
They're on the IGI at https://familysearch.org/search/collection/igi Just put in Soden, click birth, Leicester click the exact box.

"Hi David, Yes you are right. I will add a note to my family information that this is a best guess scenario and explain resaons why. I think that is all I can do at the moment with this branch.
You mention 4 children, any idea of names and I will…"
