HODGE and other Families in the islands

Postby Badminton » Tue Jul 11, 2006 7:06 am

Hi Ramona

Our family Hodge/Richardson/Howell/Gumbs (those are the names I am concentrating on) families as they first appear in the islands from the 1600's. We are talking of mainly Antigua, Anguilla and St. Martin. (My Heyliger line appeared in St. Eustatius.) I have records of these lines in my databases.

We have been filming all the Anguilla records available and some from St. Martin. These have or are at present being transcribed and it will take about a year to complete transcriptions of the latest filming in Anguilla March 2006.

Except for direct family lines, most will stop around 1900 as we did not film much after than date. However, if you have a specific person I will check my database to see if they appear. Please give me as much info as you have, eg which island, d.o.b., parentage if known.

Regards
Heather

Did not reply sooner as only this morning received your message of the 10th March.

Anglican Church Anguilla
Baptisms by Rev W H Barbador

15 Feb 1841, Entry No. 538.
Mary Margaret, illegitimate daughter of Ann Fleming of Road Division, Anguilla, Labourer.

15 Feb 1841, Entry No. 553
Mary Margaret, illegitimate daughter of Louisa Lake of Road Division, Anguilla, labourer.

There are many other births to Mary Margarets but all seem unmarried.

Am sure you've looked on the Genlias site to see if anything for the Dutch islands.

There is a John Hodge Confirmed DR Church St. Thomas 4 April 1847.

There is a death, Anguilla St. Mary's Anglican Church 24dec 1930, of a Mary Margaret Hodge, buried 25 Dec 1930, aged 88y.

Hello

I am researching the Barwell family (my husband's mother's family). In 1846 my husband's 2GAunt, Ellen L Barwell (1827-1912) born in Calcutta, India and married to Langford Lovell Hodge (1807-1862) of Antigua. I am looking for information on their 3 children, Edward Byam Hodge (1852-?), Alice Lovell Hodge (1856-?) and Ella Hastings Hodge (1859-? - who married William Rigby Hawkins in 1891).

Langford Lovell Hodge's parents were Lanford Lovell Hodeg (1771-1817) and Rebecca Byam Ottley (1787-1826).

Thank you,

Hello,

Thank you for the family tree. It is great. As a note, Rebecca Byam Ottley wife of Langford Lovell Hodge (1771-1817) can trace her family back to Lady Mary Boleyn - sister of Anne Boleyn, mother of Elizabeth I of England.

What I would like is further info on the children of Langford Lovell Hodge (1807-1862) and Ellen Barwell (1827-1912):
Son Hodge b. 1850 d: 1850
Edward Byam Hodge b: 1852
Alice Lovell Hodge b: 1856 d. 1927
Ella Hastings Hodge b: 1859

The 3, Edward, Alice and Ella lived in England. I know that Ella married William Rigby Hawkins in 1891. It looks like Alice lived with her mother Ellen until Ellen died in 1912 and then died (and registered in the same place) in 1927.

I would like to find more about Edward Byam Hodge and his sister Ella Hastings Hodge.

I belong to Ancestry .com and have researched the Family.org as best I can.

Thanks

Hi Susandes

I am a great grandson of Langford Lovell Hodge. His second wife Ellen was known to my grandmother as Granny. She lived on the south coast of England- Bournmouth I think with Auntie Allie. I have always wondered about the other two Ella Hawkins and Edward Byam Hodge.

The latter was known in the family as Byam Hodge. I found him in London in census records in London as a young man. He then fades out. I wonder what happened-according to family records left by cousin Aubrey Price he died in 1915/16 but I cannot find his death in UK. Presumably he went to live elsewhere.

Ella Hawkins died in 1927 I believe.

The Hodge family were a very proper lot and socialists and the like were not tolerated. I note that the other Price cousin was a famous economist but likewise his name is not mentioned in our records.

Anyway most interested in the Hodge history that was posted - a few inaccuracies however - regards from John Macdonald

Hi John,

Would be grateful if you could give me Hodge family corrections that you mention. My sources are mainly from the islands.

Some of the original Hodge family came to Anguilla from Antigua c1700. One line went to Philadelphia.

My Hodge family was from Anguilla and then to St. Martin/Sint Maarten. The last direct Hodge in our family was my g.g.g.grandmother, Anna Deborah Doncker Hodge, daughter of Arthur Hodge of St. Martin. He was the son of Governor Thomas Hodge of Anguilla.

Regards
Heather

Hi Heather

Very interested to read your prompt reply. I somehow imagined that other Hodges in the Caribbean must have been related. I have a letter somewhere from Grace Hodge of Hodges Bay in 1820s to her nephew Langford Hodge in England answering his inquiries about his ancestry. Aunt Grace was singularly silent about the Hodges before her father Christopher Hodge. I guess she had her reasons.

My research goes back to Henry Hodge of Hodges Bay of whom I can find next to nothing except that he was settled in Antigua by the 1670s. I understand there is an account of the family in V L Oliver's "The History of the Island of Antigua"? Henry's widow Margaret became the second wife of Christopher Knight in 1701 and died in 1727.By her first marriage she had four sons- the eldest Henry (1680-1732) a Quaker, settled in Philadelphia, having married Frances a daughter of Christopher Knight and his first wife Frances Duncan.

Second son John Hodge of Hodges Bay (1782-1724) married Mary another daughter of Christopher Knight and Frances Duncan

Third son Joseph (1683-1742) married Jane Lazeur

Youngest son Benjamin born 1689

As you may be aware Henry and Joseph left children

John Hodge as you know left a large family. I think however that Henry was born in 1717? As you know he had two wives but Grace Blizard was his second wife. This would make Henry only seventeen when he became the father of Mary by Elizabeth Knight (presumably his cousin). He appears to have subsequently married Elizabeth who then died? and he then married Grace Blizard (presumably another cousin). I suspect she was daughter of John Blizard and Margaret another daughter of Christopher Knight and Frances Duncan.

None of the Hodges lived to a great age but by Henry's generation had become fairly prosperous. At his death in 1750 he was worth 7900 pounds. His son Christopher Hodge of Hodges Bay and Dominica left 30,000 pounds at his death in 1773. I have not seen any wills of the family but know they do exist.

There are extensive family records in the Bodleian Library, Oxford, England that I have not researched yet- letter books of Langford Hodge and some 18 century records. These were sold to the Library in 1985 by one DG Moore. This is a mystery to myself and my cousins in New Zealand because we are the only descendants I think of the second Langford Hodge and wonder how these records came into his possession.

Anyway they are now in the right place. The library records refer to estates in British Guiana but we think this should be Guiana a small island off Antigua- My grandmother told me they owned an island. They also had in Antiqua, Cooks, Union, Ottos and Dewitts estates. During the time of the second Langford Hodge the family fortune declined and the estates sold except Hodges Bay that was later sold by my gran's father

kind regards

hi,

I'm David French from Guadeloupe.

I'm looking for information about Edwige dite Virginia HODGE. She was born in Anguilla in 1899. Her parents were William HODGE and Eglantine OQUEZALIE. She came in Guadeloupe (Marie-Galante) and married a French fishman in 1935.

I don't know why she left Anguilla, or who her family was.

Can you help me?

Thanks, David

Hi, David,

From the Anguilla records I do not have any exact match for your family names; this is the nearest I can find and closest to 1899. If you have further info on her siblings, let me know.

There is always the possibility her birth was not registered and that, even if she were baptized at the Methodist Church those records were lost in a fire some years ago. She does not appear in the Anglican records.
