Hi,
We have just started doing our family tree and I googled Louisa Maggie Soper who is my mum's grandmother.  I came across your information but as this is from 2006, I am unsure if you are still looking?
Louisa's mother is Louisa Soper who you have mentioned in your request for information.  Louisa Maggie Soper married Samuel George Moule on 11th August 1917 in Uckfield Sussex.  Samuel was 27 years od and Louisa Maggie Soper was 38 years old when they married.  They had two sons, Samuel Arthur Moule(my grandfather) and his brother kenneth George.  Louisa Maggie's father, Samuel Henry Soper was deceased when they married.  My grandfather, Samuel Arthur passed away in 2007 but his brother Kenneth is still alive and living in the UK.
It would be great to make contact if you are still researching the Soper family.  It was great to come across this information through your request as we have limited information on my grandfather's family.
