Thanks for your message. There may well be a connection, as my great, great grandfather Peter Pederson was a carpenter. Do you know what part of Norway Thomas Edward Pederson was born?
I think by his birth date he would be the same generation as my grandfather, Ernest William Pederson, born 7 February 1895, (who kept the carpenter's tools) and was in the Royal Navy (British)for most of his working life. He died in the Second World War, and so I did not know him or much about his own relations.
It is possible they were cousins?
I am trying to research further in Norway, and will let you know what I come across - we could find there is a connection!
