How Soham got its name, If we turn to the Domesday Survey (1086) the name of the parish is spelt Soeham or Seaham, then at a much later time as Seham. In other manuscripts it is given variously as Soame, Shoame, Swoham, Some and Saham, and a charter mentions the town as Soegham. Probably the earliest official mention of Soham was made in A.D. 972 concerning the grants of land at Rettendon, Soham and Ditton. “Soeg” is derived from the Anglo-Saxon word “sagt” meaning drenched. These two words come from the root verb seen in Anglo-Saxon called “sigan” – to soak or drain. “Sigan” is also connected with the Icelandic word “saggi”, meaning moisture or dampness, so it would suggest that Soegham was a culmination of two words, either drenched or soaked and hamlet and this would make sense considering the amount of water in the vicinity at that period.
Soham is a moderate sized market town with an active community, and an ever increasing population of around 11,000+ inhabitants, located in the heart of the fen lands in Cambridgeshire, on the A142 between the City of Ely and Newmarket, it is the second largest parish in East Cambs covering 5,245 hectares, and is situated in the Staploe Hundred. Soham is in a prime location in the fens and only 6 miles from the Isle of Ely to the North. The town narrowly escaped destruction on 2 June 1944, during the Second World War, when a fire developed on the lead wagon of a heavy ammunition train travelling slowly through the town.
The town was saved by the bravery of four railway staff, James Nightall (Fireman), Benjamin Gimbert (Driver), Herbert Clarke (Guard) and Frank Bridges (Signalman),who uncoupled the rest of the train and drove the engine and lead wagon clear of the town, where it exploded, killing Jim Nightall and Frank Bridges but causing no further deaths. Ben Gimbert survived and spent seven weeks in hospital. Although small in comparison to what would have happened if the entire train had blown up, the explosion caused substantial property damage. Gimbert and Nightall were both awarded the George Cross (Nightall posthumously). A permanent memorial was unveiled on 2 June 2007 by HRH Prince Richard, Duke of Gloucester followed by a service in St. Andrew’s Church. The memorial is constructed of Portland Stone with a bronze inlay depicting interpretive artwork of the damaged train and text detailing the incident.
