Origin of the Name Hodges

The origin of the name Hodges was found in the allfamilycrests.com archives. Variants of the name Hodge include Hodgson, Hodgeson, Hodges, Hodgin, Hodgett, Hodgins, Hotchkin, Hodskin and Hodson. Meaning 'the son of Roger', a baptismal name, the main areas of concentration of this name in England are in West Lancashire, around Preston, and in North Derby, around Ashover. This name is of Anglo-Saxon descent spreading to the Celtic countries of Ireland , Scotland and Wales in early times and is found in many mediaeval manuscripts throughout these countries. Examples of such are a Johannes Hodgeson and a Thomas Hogge, who were recorded in the 'Poll Tax' of the West Riding of Yorkshire, England , in the year 1379. A John Hoggeson was recorded in the Valor Ecclesiasticus, an ancient document. The name is recorded in the Preston Guild Rolls in 1582 in the spelling Hogekynson. In Scotland a Laurence Hoige was a witness in Glasgow in the year 1550. In Ireland the name Hodges and the variant name Hodgins have become very well established in Leinster and Munster Provinces where they were introduced from the seventeenth century onwards.
The Hodges coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Hodges descendants.
