Can anyone help me find where my ancestor Robert Hodgson was born? He is listed in the 1841 census in Carlisle in England as a British Citizen born in Sidney. There seems to be no record of him before his marriage in 1833 to Jane Cape in Gretna Green. He was a stonemason.

I have been researching my Hodgson family for some years and recently found a diary of John Hodgson, born 16 March 1779, died 14 August 1858. It states his sister lived in Heighington, near Darlington, County Durham, UK, and that his mother went out riding at Piercebridge on the Colonel’s farm. I suspect this to be Col. James O’Callaghan MP, who was a friend of Hodgson and godfather to his son James Stewart Hodgson, who became a partner of Barings and a governor of the Bank of England. I don’t know either his sister’s or mother’s names, though have may have been Sarah; his father was also John. John Hodgson joined a firm of International Traders and cotton manufacturers called James Finlay & Co. in Glasgow, and was described as a ’Newcastle lad’ in the company archives. I think that there may be a link with The Surtees family, mentioned at the end of the diary. There is speculation that his father may have been a sugar refiner, but I can find no solid evidence for this. If anyone knows the roots of this family I would be grateful. I have family trees on myheritage.com and ancestry.co.uk and would be willing to share them.

My great-great-Grandmother was Alice Hodgson b 1805 Preston, Lancs. She married William Wrennall (Reynolds) in 1864. On their marriage cert, James Hodgson a brickmaker, is given as Alice's father. I have the death cert, of James Hodgson brickmaker b 1873 c. He died 27 Oct 1851 in Ribbleton Lane, Preston. I have been unable to trace him successfully in 1851 and 1841 censuses. I have details of James’s children from Preston graveyard.

My grandfather Thomas Archibald Hodgson was born in Liverpool in 1919, and died in Rotorua, New Zealand in 1977 or 1978. He fought in the Second World War and moved to New Zealand shortly afterwards. He married Norah Olive Evelyn Eve (unsure of the spelling of her name) while in New Zealand, and had four children there, including my mother. Not much is known about his life in England. Can anybody help?

I am searching for missing links in my Hodgson tree. Richard Reed Hodgson was born in 1748 in Durham. He married Elizabeth Middleton in Chester-le-Street. He later married Ann Stafford. I am seeking information on Richard’s Parents. I understand his Father was probably Thomas Hodgson. My grandfather Robert Hodgson was born August 1828 in County Durham, England. He emigrated to the Ballarat Gold Fields in Victoria, Australia and settled in Otago, New Zealand in the Gold Rush around 1861-64. He died in Cardrona, N.Z. on 16 Dec 1893, leaving a widow with 11 children, one being my Mother Alice, a twin, then aged 2 months old. Robert’s Parents were William Hodgson born 1792 in Morpeth and Ann Embleton born 17 March 1790. Robert had seven siblings: Mary, Richard, Maryann, Edward, Benjamin, Sarah and Elizabeth. I would be most grateful to hear from any descendants and I would appreciate any leads. Thank you.
I am trying to research my great-great grandfather’s family. His name was Joseph Hodgson and he was from Lancashire in England. I think that Joseph’s father was William Hodgson, who was married to a Margaret. William owned sailing barques and two of his sons captained family barques. Joseph had qualified as a vet in England and was allowed to make a trip to Australia with one of his brothers. While in Australia the ship Duke of Roxburgh came in to port and he was permitted to make the trip to New Zealand to visit a Reverend Williams in the Bay of Islands. He was supposed to be back in Australia in time for the return trip to England, but he met my great-great grandmother Mary Prouse and so he stayed. They were married at Waimate North, New Zealand on 5 November 1840. They then moved to Auckland where he owned the first butcher’s shop in Queen St, Auckland. They shifted over to Waiheke Island and in 1868 he purchased 125 acres at Rocky Bay which was known as Omiha. I would be grateful if I can find information about his parents, brothers and sisters.

They had a son Thomas Hodgson, born in 1799 who married Eleanor Wright. I am now stuck and would find any information a bonus.

I am researching my family history and have drawn a blank with the Hodgsons. I believe my great-great-great-great grandfather was Featherstone Hodgson. I have the birth certificate for his son, born 30 September 1838 in the parish of St. Giles, New Durham, also registered as Featherstone Hodgson. He was brought up by his maternal grandparents, Christopher and Mary Bainbridge; he is with them on the early census returns and grew up as a Bainbridge. His mother, Jane Bainbridge, is not visible on census returns as far as I can see but would only have been 18 when her son was born. I have found a possible marriage of a Featherstone Hodgson in the district of Weardale in December 1838 but cannot confirm whether this was him. Neither can I identify him with certainty on census returns. I would be interested in hearing from anyone who has knows any more about Featherstone Hodgson.
Jan Bridges firstname.lastname@example.org
Phillis Hodgson married Thomas Bridges on 13 May 1794 in Houghton Conquest, Bedfordshire, England. She and Thomas had 13 children (I think), most of whom have been verified either through the IGI or through descendents of one of their children. I would really love to find out more about this lady as she is very elusive and seeing she gave the Bridges family so many ancestors, feel as if I need to give her some credit in our family tree.

Matthew Hodgson, an apothecary, at Hawkshead in Cumbria in England was my great-great-great-great-grandfather. He married Fanny Irton and they had a son Edmund Irton Hodgson who arrived in Australia 1822 where he married Sarah Birch (née Guest) at Hobart Town, VDL, on 29 November 1823. Sarah was a daughter of convict parents George Guest who arrived in Australia on the First Fleet 1887 and Mary Bateman who travelled on the Lady Julianna in 1788.
Jan Brown firstname.lastname@example.org
I am researching the line of Stephen Hodgson. His son was Daniel (born about 1818) who married Ann Richardson in 1840 in Whitehaven, Cumberland, England. The censuses show they had 8 children and were also caring for a granddaughter, Sarah A. Hodgson. The children were Elizabeth (1847), William (1849), Mary Ann (1852), Elenor (1855), Jane (1858), Thomas (1860), John (1862) and Martha (1868). They were mostly born in Harrington, Cumberland, England with a few born in Whitehaven. My line comes in with Mary Ann Hodgson who married John Joyce in Whitehaven, England. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

After researching my family for years, I cannot find anything about my great-grandmother, Fanny Hodgson. She and my great-grandfather Albert William Browning were married in the Church of the Holy Trinity, Toronto, Ontario on 17 April 1884. Her maid of honour was Elizabeth Hodgson. Fanny gave birth to two children: a son Harry (1884) and a daughter Olive (1892) but then unfortunately died in childbirth. My Browning family lived in two locations: Frome, Somerset, England and Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Fanny had an album with family photos in perfect condition, from Belleville, Ontario; Brooklin, NY; Chicago, Ill; Des Moines, Iowa; Rochester, NY; and Winnipeg, Manitoba. If any of this strikes a cord with someone out there I would appreciate hearing from them.

My great-grandfather, James Hodgson (1854-1929), was an importer and woolen merchant in Auckland, New Zealand. James came from a family of woolen merchants and manufacturers from Leeds, Yorkshire, England, and he had two brothers who remained in England. James Hodgson first came to Auckland, New Zealand in 1879 on the S.S. Ionic from London. A few years later returned to Leeds, England, and in 1883 in Holbeck married Elizabeth Ann Walker who was from York. He returned to Auckland, NZ, with Elizabeth Ann in 1885. I am seeking information on his brothers and parents and their business in Leeds.

David Hodgson was born in 1793 and his wife Ann in 1797, we think in Beverley, Yorkshire, England. They are my great-great-grandparents. The 1841 census shows their four children: George 11, William 10, Elizabeth 7 and Susan 4. In the passenger and immigration lists index, David is listed as coming to Ontario Canada in 1871. They settled in Enniskillen Township, Lambton County, Ontario, Canada. Elizabeth Kells, David and Ann's daughter married William Kells. We would appreciate any information anyone has on this family.
Thomas Hodgson Coetzee
My mother – Maria Magdalena Sarah was born on 1 Feb 1911 to Mary Hodgson wife of John Hodgson – originally from somewhere in Scotland (possibly Edinburgh). She was one of approximately 10 children – one of them being her brother Thomas Hodgson after whom I was named. I have been seeking more info on John Hodgson who, as I was told, was the station master at Kenilworth (Cape Town, South Africa) and due to an accident (dates not known) suffered brain damage and for his own safety was ensconced at the Alexander Institute where he lived for the remainder of his life. The family was rather ashamed of this – thus very little information was forthcoming about him. I am writing my own memoirs for my grandchildren in Australia who don’t even know me very well – hence my desire to learn all I can about the ancestors of my Hodgson family.

I am searching for information about my great grandmother, Sarah Elizabeth Hodgson. She was born around 1886/1887 – I am not sure where. My dad believes she was from the Newcastle upon Tyne area. But there may be a Carlisle connection as she went on to marry Giovanni Rossi in Whitehaven in 1916 and her marriage certificate reveals her father as William Hodgson a stonemason. She died in Whitehaven, Cumbria in 1958. Any information would be appreciated. Thank you.

My grandfather was called up for duty in around 1939-40. Sadly like so many of the brave men that went to war, he was killed in Damascus, Syria in July 1941 at the age of 23. Matthew Hodgson was in the Leicester Regiment - 2nd Battalion, his military number is 6023698, and he has the following war medals: Defence Star, Defence Medal, Africa Star, Middle East Star. At this moment in time this is the only information I have, I would dearly like to trace some of his relatives, maybe even find a photograph, as my dad has no idea what his father looked like, I would be grateful for any help.

I am trying to confirm a family story that my Hodgson ancestors originated on the Isle of Man. I have traced back to Francis Hodgson born c.1755 and his marriage in 1776 to Rebecca Askew in Maldon, Essex. The parish registers back to 1695 show that Francis was the only Hodgson in Maldon - no siblings or parents - and Rebecca Askew's family is the only Askew family there. There are other family names in Maldon that are said to originate in the Isle of Man – Quilter, Scarf, Cottier, Cowell. I have briefly searched the IGI and found Hodgsons scattered around the Isle of Man but not Francis. My ggg-grandfather and three of his children emigrated to Australia in 1857 and 1869. I am willing to share my research on my Hodgson line.

Hodgson was my grandmother's maiden name. Her family was Roman Catholic and she was raised in the Ribbleton area of Preston, Lancashire. She was the youngest girl of thirteen children, some of whom died in infancy. Her parents were John Hodgson (born 10 Oct 1855) and Margaret. All her siblings were christened at English Martyrs Church on Garstang Road, adjacent to where they then lived, in Ellen Street and the general area of Aqueduct Street in Preston. John had a sister Catherine (born 22 Sep 1852). John's father was Thomas (born 1833). I would be grateful to anyone who can expand on this information.

My great grandfather Robert Hodgson was baptised in Richmond in Yorkshire in 1802 (with a twin brother John), where his father William was listed as a paper maker. From further research it appears William was the owner of the paper mill. There are several William Hodgsons listed and I have been unable to positively identify his marriage or baptism, which is extremely disappointing. Any help would be welcome.

I am trying to obtain information about Henry Hodson, who was a horse dealer. He had a son George Marriott Hodson born about 1832 in Cleckheaton, Yorkshire. George married Ellen Gertrude Healy 22 Aug 1854 in Nottingham. I think there were three other children all born in Cleckheaton: Mercy born about 1835, Benjamin born about 1836 and Sarah born about 1837. From census records it appears that the children were living with their grandparents in 1841 and 1851, but not subsequently.

My father was Harland Hodgson, later from Darfield near Barnsley in South Yorkshire. Many of his family were noted local publicans.
I have lived in this area all my life and I have many unidentified pictures and documents. I will dig them out if anyone is interested.
Albert Hodgson email@example.com
Harry Hodgson, my grandfather (born 29 May 1860, died 21 Feb 1937) married Alice Elizabeth (originates Norfolk) on 4 September 1889. He enlisted in The King's Regiment and appears on the 1881 Census in Orford Barracks, Warrington, Lancs. I then find no appearances until the 1911 Census. I know from the places of birth of his five sons that they must have lived in army married quarters: Albert 1890 India, Edwin 1892 Blundell Norfolk, Archie 1894, Claude 1895 Warrington. Harry retired as RSM in the King's Regiment about 1905 after about 25 years service and took up residence in Warrington.

Ann Hodgson firstname.lastname@example.org
I am looking for any information on my family. I was born in April 1965 in Pretoria, South Africa and was immediately adopted out. My adopted parents kept my Hodgson name and I know from my original birth certificate that my mother's name is Una Claire Hodgson. She was born in Durban in 1940 or 1941. I have lived in the UK for the past 23 years but would love to find any connection or information about my birth family.
Anthony Hodgson email@example.com
I am of the Hodgson line that have farmed in Eskdale (Grosmont Priory) and on the North Yorkshire Moors (Biggin Houses, Mirkside), around Whitby, for the 500 years or more. Some, John and Jane, were known as 'notorious recusants', being part of a safe house network for priests arriving from the continent. I am very interested in finding out whether there is a connection with the Hodgsons of Hebburn Hall, as claimed by the renegade priest, Thomas Clarke in 1593 (Aveling). I'd also love to find out what happened to my g-g-g-granddad's brother, Francis, who apparently emigrated to Australia. Thomas was born in 1801; Francis was his little brother. Many thanks.
Bev Hodgson firstname.lastname@example.org
My great grandfather was John Hodgson, born circa 1774. But I have not been able to trace his baptism. In the baptism record of some of his children he is stated to be a “native of Holwick” in North Yorkshire. In the 1840 census when living in Romaldkirk, North Yorkshire, he indicated he was born in the same county. He died before the 1851 census. He married Mary Collinson at nearby Middleton-in-Teesdale, County Durham, on 12 June 1800. Their descendants are fairly well documented, but I would like to trace John’s forebears if I can.
Bob Hodgson (Madbury NH. USA) email@example.com
My grandfather was James F. Hodgson who was born and lived in Leigh Lancashire until he immigrated to the USA in 1905. His father and grandfather were both named William Hodgson and they had a shop on Market Street in Leigh Lancashire from 1841 thru 1900. My line goes Robert, James, James, William, William, John. John was a "stone mason" in Great Driffield, Yorkshire. He is as far back as I have been able to trace my HODGSON ancestry. I would be thrilled to hear from anyone who knows anything of my English Hodgson ancestors.
Brandalynn Hodgson firstname.lastname@example.org
I was born in 1982. My family is from New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. I have three younger siblings. My father is Ricky C Hodgson. His father is Maurice G. Hodgson Jr, who was son of Maurice G. Hodgson Sr. My mother was working on our family history, but Hurricane Katrina destroyed a lot of vital information. Sadly my grandfather and most of my Hodgson relatives have passed on. The only thing I have to work with now is a book my great grandmother filled out when I was born but it doesn't say much about our Hodgson Family. If you or anyone can help me with this in anyway please let me know.

I have traced my direct Hodgson line to Robert Hodgson (b1805 in South Shields, Co Durham). His parents were Christopher Hodgson (b. 1772) in Haughton-Le-Skerne and Hannah Mitcheson (b. 1771) in Norton, Co. Durham. Christopher's father was also Christopher and that's where the trail runs cold! Any info on the Hodgsons in Haughton-Le-Skerne greatly appreciated.

We recently traced our Hodgson ancestors to a John Thomas Hodgson (son of Thomas Hodgson and Anne) and Mary Blackett, married at St. Michaels, Appleby, Cumberland, England, in December 1797. My great-great grandfather, Thomas, was the second of their ten children, b. 1800. Any leads backwards of forwards (from the other nine siblings) in the line would be most appreciated. We will be happy to share our research..

Daphne A. Hodgson email@example.com
I am just beginning what I find to be a convoluted search. My father Richard Hodgson was born in 1922 in the Blackburn/Manchester area in England. He had two brothers, Frederick (older) and John (younger). His parents were Frederick Hodgson, one of supposedly 23 born in the Lake District and Ann (née Cullimore) Hodgson from County Cork, Ireland. I've been lead to believe my grandfather was in royal military service, possibly the army. The family immigrated to the USA in 1924 and settled in New York. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

David Hodgson email@example.com
I am the son of Darryl Hodgson (born 1950), his sister is Una Claire Hodgson (born 1940) both born in Natal, South Africa. Their parents are Robert "Chum" William Hodgson (born 30 July 1908/6) and Marian Hodgson (nee White b.1910). Robert had no brothers, his sisters are Eileen (married McGrath) and Elizabeth "Peggy" (married Simms). Their father William Hodgson owned a stage coach horse transport business (W Hodgson Transport)in Mooi River in Natal. That is about all I know of my Hodgson line, I do not know when or who first came to South Africa. It also seems Una Claire Hodgson had a daughter Ann Hodgson in April 1965 in Pretoria and immediately gave her up for adoption. She posted on this site.

Derek Ellis Hodgson firstname.lastname@example.org
My earliest known ancestor is a Thomas Hodgson born in 1780 who lived at Hague Farm, Renishaw, Derbyshire, England. During the 1850s part of the family – Eliza, James. Jane and Robert – moved to Sheffield. They appear in the 1851 census. Ann Brown who is also listed at the same address could be the older sister Ann. I have not been able to find out what happened to the rest of the family, namely the father Thomas and his wife Harriot. The 1891 Census lists the family of the previously mentioned James. His wife was called Grace and their children are listed as Albert, Eliza J, James and Harry. Harry was my grandfather and I am aware of a Peter Hodgson whose grandfather was Albert. My grandmother was named Sarah, maiden name Ellis and came from Mosborough, Yorkshire, England.

My great-great-grandfather Tyson Hodgson was born in Sedgefield, County Durham in 1850. His parents were Mary Ann Peacock and a John Hodgson, son of Thomas. John unfortunately died a year later in 1851. From his death certificate I estimate his birth year as 1822. Apart from this scant information, I've drawn a blank in finding the family either locally in Durham, neighbouring Yorkshire or even Cumberland/Westmorland. Any pointers would be appreciated

I am interested in any information available about the descendants of Ralph Hodgson and Margaret Harland. The Harland's were apparently the family that owned the shipbuilding company, Harland and Wolff Shipyards, in Belfast, which built the "Titanic". In any case, Ralph and Margaret had a son, Harland Hodgson, who married Elizabeth Coop Ashton. They had a son, Henry, who was born on 11 Sep 1847 in Holbeck (nr. Leeds, Yorkshire) and died 30 Oct 1917. He married Mary Bannister (born 24 Jan 1851/52; d. April, 1911/12). One of their children was my grandfather, Henry Hodgson (born 18 Sep 1877). Henry owned several pubs, among which were the Cudworth Hotel (Cudworth), the Railway Hotel (Wombwell), the Station Inn (Wombwell) and the Crown Inn (West Mountain).

I lost contact with my grandma since I got married in 2007 and have been searching since. I would like to know if my grandma (Doris Joan Honeybourne Hodgson born 1920) died already and if her death was registered in Southampton. I would like to know where she was buried so I can at least visit her tomb and place flowers, pray and light a candle... pay my respects together with my grandad (Albert Ernest Charles Hodgson born 1920) who died in 2004. Maybe they have been now laid in peace together. They were married in 1940 at St Luke’s Southampton Parish Church.

My great-great-great grandfather was Christopher Hodgson born in 1808. He moved to Nova Scotia, Canada, and his descendants are William Hodgson, Henry B. Hodgson, Leroy Hodgson, and my father John Ross Hodgson. Henry B. Hodgson migrated to Maine 1891 in the area of Somerset and later moved to Byron, Oxford County, Maine. Based on the year of his birth, Christopher's father may be either Mark Hodgson or Christopher Hodgson.
John Hodgson firstname.lastname@example.org
My Hodgson forebears come from Wallsend on Tyneside, and worked in the shipyards. My great-grandfather Charles Hodgson (married in Wallsend aged 25 in 1888) came from Norton-on-Tees, where his father George was a publican. This George Hodgson may have been born in Eppleby, North Yorkshire in 1837, marrying Mary Wharton in Norton in 1860, but my information is uncertain. The family appears to have moved from rural Eppleby to industrial Teesside and Tyneside, following the job opportunities of the industrial revolution. I would be interested to hear from anybody with knowledge of this branch of the family.

New Zealand has many Hodgson families, my own dates back to 1851 when my great grandfather Twentyman Hodgson arrived, in Lyttelton Harbour near the very young Christchurch settlement on the sailing ship Cressy from Raithby, in Lincolnshire. When aged 21 Twentyman married Sarah Ann Pattrich, aged 22, on 1 August 1876 at Wesley Church, Loburn, near Christchurch. He was a drover. (There was another Twentyman Hodgson about in Canterbury about that time.) Twentyman and Sarah had six children: Lucy, Bertie Lennox, Millicent, Muriel, Stanlet Anthony, and Pearl. My grandfather, Stanley Anthony H. married Grace Elizabeth Craw and they had four children, Muriel, Clarence W, Robert Stanley Lennox and Sylvia.

My Hodgsons are from Co. Durham and Tyneside. In the 19th century they were master grocers and master butchers with what appears to have been either a chain or a related group of shops in Newcastle, West Rainton, East Rainton, Prudhoe and Jarrow. And possibly with links to Middleton-in-Teesdale. Any info gratefully received!

My grandfather Herbert Hodgson is credited with developing the Hodgson Sea Wall, which supports the man-made Florida Keys. His aunt was apparently Francis Hodgson Burnett, the famous novelist. My father was Peter Calvert Leary Hodgson Senior (1912-1976), the inventor of “silly putty.” His brother was Herbert Hodgson who had two sons.
I have recently been diagnosed with hemochromatosis. This is a genetic disorder that I inherited from both my parents. It can cause serious lateral damage (diabetes, arthritis, tachycardia ...). Neither of my parents was diagnosed. They both died at 63. I need to reach the son of my father's brother, Herbert. Both Herbert and the elder of Herbert's sons died very young of diabetes. I want to alert my cousin of the possibility that he has the same genetic condition that killed his father and brother.
As I understand it, my uncle Herbert died of a severe diabetes attack, in his early forties, in the 1940s. His older son suffered the same fate. When my father died, in 1976, my cousin (I believe his name was Peter) had been living in Southern California, in the San Fernando Valley.
If my cousin is still alive, and unaware of his condition, he should be tested as soon as possible.

My father Francis Hodgson was born, I believe, in Knock in Cumbria in 1908. In 1945 he married Marion Lund in Settle. He had brothers Bill, Allan and Bob and sister Molly.
